Hello. My name is Matt Schneider and I have over 25 years of experience as a rock/metal/acoustic guitarist, vocalist, songwriter, producer, and engineer. My body of work includes over a dozen and a half studio recordings, as well as countless live gigs around the Chicagoland and surrounding Midwestern areas.

I take great pride in my work and will do my absolute best to make sure that you are completely satisfied with the finished product(s). My services include rhythm guitars (doubled and panned to your liking), lead guitars, random guitar fills/overdubs, acoustic guitars, podcast editing/mixing, and audio cleanup (noise reduction, de-clipping, de-clicking, distortion removal, background noise removal). Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to hopefully working together soon!
