Amit Erez

Guitarist, Producer, Editor

Originally from Israel and now living in the states, my past experience includes 20 years of recording and performing in the genres of Folk, Pop, Rock, Alternative & Progressive. I toured Europe countless times as a solo artist, a leader of my own band “The Secret Sea” and as a guitarist for the art-rock band “Eatliz”. I was a signed artist with Israel’s leading indie label “Anova Music” and played in festivals such as “Primavera Sound” in Barcelona and “Exit” in Serbia among others. With “Eatliz”, I had the honor to open shows for artists such as “Porcupine Tree” and Dweezil Zappa (Zappa plays Zappa). In Portland I had worked with Larry Crane at Jackpot! Studios (Elliott Smith, Cat Power, M Ward and others).

These days I am the in-house guitarist for the label “Burn County” producing Country Rap music, where I recently co-wrote and played on a song feat. Corey Taylor (Slipknot), “Live the Madness” by Moonshine Bandits!

Equipment:
Guild M20, Guild D35NT, Nash Telecaster, 1965 EKO Barracuda VI.
I work with Shure and Audio-Technica Microphones, and my DAW is Ableton Live.

Thorough communication is key. I will ask for sound references, deadlines, and if the song has drums I will ask for a basic programming to be there if the real drums haven’t been recorded yet.

Writing for guitar is my vehicle to put my heart and soul into a song. My expertise is fingerstyle guitar on acoustic and nylon strings, but in my audio sample you will hear a lot of electric guitars too. I love both. Other than guitar work, I enjoy editing stems and comping takes for vocals or instruments. I know that many people find that part of the work boring and tedious, but I seem to find satisfaction doing that! So if you need someone to do editing for you I will be happy to do just that.

Usually about 2 revisions included. Turnaround time is 2-4 days to 1-2 weeks, depending on the project.
