My name is Michael Briggs and I'm an audio engineer from Denton, TX.

I have over 17 years of experience with recording and have had the great pleasure and privilege to work with hundreds of bands across many different genres. I'm honored to have been voted the "Best Sound Engineer" by the public at the Denton Arts and Music Awards. To date, I have worked with around 300 bands bands on over 2,000 songs.

I often take a do-it-all approach for making a record: tracking, mixing and mastering. Civil Recording is the name of my studio in the heart of Denton, TX (just north of Dallas). The studio is located in the center of town near the beautiful town square and several great restaurants. Denton is a great town to visit and make a record in.

Mixing is my passion and in addition to mixing what I track, I am now accepting online mixing projects where you track it yourself at home or another studio and send me the multi-track to mix. Call or email for a rate quote. See the Mixing and Mastering pages for more info.

I currently host a radio show playing mostly local songs that I have recorded on KUZU 92.9FM and in the past I have managed a small record label, a DIY house venue, a non-profit coffee roasting company and a live performance archive website called the Violitionist Sessions. I recorded over 170 national, international and local bands for the Violitionist Sessions, including Amanda Palmer with Neil Gaiman, La Dispute, Modern Baseball, Tiny Moving Parts, The Baptist Generals, Two Knights, Empire Empire, Kylesa, Centro-matic, Astronautalis and many more.

I work with all genres of music, including rock, pop, hip-hop, punk, emo, electronic, noise rock, folk, classical, jazz, metal, avant-garde, screamo, pop punk, hardcore, etc etc. I try not to pigeonhole myself into just one genre and I enjoy working on it all. Take a minute to listen to some samples of my past work in the left hand column of the site (or the bottom on mobile).

I always give every project 100% and I'm not happy until you're happy. "Pretty good" is not good enough. The mix is not done until you love it.

Use the form below to send me the details of your project. Let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to working together.
