Shibumi Soundesign

"A producer's role is similar to that of a film director in that they act as a creative guide throughout the process of making a record."

Your Producer, Mixer, and Editor

Tony Shibumi has leant his talents to a phenomenal mix of major and

independent labels, producers and professional artists over the years.  

His wealth of experience as a professional bassist, gifted songwriter,

prolific digital recorder and engineering expertise, has given him the

opportunity to finally move forward with the new collaboration with MegaSound Studio's and the launch of his production company Shibumi Soundesign their goal as a boutique sound house specializing in good artists and great music, combined with strong placement and marketing.

If there is talent to be found in the artist, collaboration, or band, Tony's gift

is to help release it and where there is talent, there is most certainly an audience for that talent - and Shibumi Soundesign's team is committed to developing and supporting that band or artist with the right music for their journey.
