WELCOME! – AND THANKS FOR VISITING.

We’re Sean and Jill Mitchell, musicians, producers and parents who love to create—so much so that we’ve created a production company (this one!) to provide B2B solutions in the advertising, marketing and branding space.

Our services are designed to elevate your clients’ brand and offer unique ways for consumer interaction, while affording you the ease and means to guide your clients into new spaces. It’s a win-win, expanding both their reach and your services.

With the increasing copyright claims happening on sites like YouTube, Twitch, Facebook and Tik Tok, it’s also incredibly important to know that your content is safe and won’t be muted due to copyright infringement. That’s where we come in — we deliver tailored compositions with the necessary licenses. Worry-free.

“Content is king.” – Bill Gates

At EDP, we craft the soundtrack, content and platform to spread your clients’ message. Our services cover 4 CONTENT AREAS:

MUSIC COMPOSITION

Whether it’s an original melody direct from our heads or a cover of Lady Gaga’s latest #1 hit, the right music can boost a project’s impact. We pride ourselves on delivering music that is not only exclusive to our clients, but carefully tailored to their unique brand and vision and properly cleared with the right permissions and licenses in place.


VODCASTS & PODCASTS

Podcasts and vodcasts (podcast with video) are all the rage. And we at EDP are making it easier than ever before to create your own audio and video episodes. Unique to EDP is our virtual online studio, which enables us to meet online with clients and host a production, with us as the producer. (It’s much like a Zoom room but with way more toys and branding options!) As if that isn’t cool enough, we offer a livestream service which can be broadcast to your client’s social media pages (up to 15 at a time) while hosting multiple guests (up to 9) and taking questions via live chat from those same 15 feeds. As part of both our livestream and the pre-recorded services we provide a raw recorded version of the production to the client— but you can add the sparkle & shine with our post-production services.


VOICEOVER

Need a narrator for a company video, YouTube ad or national TV commercial? Our voiceovers are second to none and produced to the highest radio/television broadcast quality standards. Bonus: our scriptwriting services further assist you in delivering an effective on-brand message.


CONSULTING/COACHING

Got questions? We’ve got answers. Whether it’s technical info about podcast gear, tips from a vocal coach (Jill) on how to deliver your best radio voice, or expertise on running a live video Q&A, our combined 20+ years of experience in music, broadcast and vocal coaching will more than likely A your Q.


We have tons of SAMPLES below, so feel free to take a peak. Like what you see? Email to enquire about our rates — or just to say “hi!” We love meeting new folks.

VODCAST & PODCAST

VODCAST (LIVESTREAM)

DRUM GEEK VODCAST – LIBERTY DEVITTO (BILLY JOEL)
(livestream & post-production, music composition)

This is a great example of how our livestream capabilities can integrate an interactive component, such as a chat, into a vodcast or Q&A session. The Liberty DeVitto episode was streamed to Drum Geek’s YouTube, Facebook and Twitch channels as well as to Liberty’s personal Facebook page. In this case, fans of Mr. DeVitto were able to ask him questions live on air by typing their questions into the chat features of both the Drum Geek channels and his Facebook page.

DRUM GEEK VODCAST – DOM FAMULARO (AUTHOR/EDUCATOR)
(livestream & post-production, music composition)

A great example of the types of interaction points we can create with mailing lists, live overlays, graphics and in-chat links. This stream was announced via Dom’s Mailchimp list and included a special link to watch the stream live. During this vodcast, we chat about Dom’s various projects. In this case, a chart for Dom’s book The Cycle Of Self Empowerment was brought up on screen to explain how he developed the book. During this interview segment we posted a clickable link to buy the book in the group chat (connected to this livestream).

VODCAST (PRE-RECORDED)

DRUM GEEK VODCAST – MITCH DORGE (CRASH TEST DUMMIES)
(
pre-recorded & post-production, music composition)

Mitch’s episode had to be pre-recorded as his tour schedule conflicted with our live vodcast schedule. A Mailchimp was sent to his email list to send in questions via email by a specific date ahead of the pre-recorded interview. During the interview’s recording, we brought up the submitted emailed questions on screen for Mitch to answer. As is part of our post-production, this vodcast was edited for content “clean up” and a couple internet glitches. This particular clip was then selected from the 1-hour recording and edited to 2:09min. in order to promote on social media (part of our post-production services).

PODCAST (LIVESTREAM)

DRUM GEEK PODCAST – NATE MORTON (NBC’S THE VOICE)
(music composition, live production, audio editing, mixing & mastering)

We’ve boasted that we can A your Q. But we don’t expect you to simply take our word for it.

When forming a new business partnership, it’s only natural to want to know the “who” behind the company — and more importantly, what their expertise are. So, this is us, The Mitchells, in a nutshell.



Music, music, and more music.

We’ve traveled the world for many years playing music, recording music, having fun, eating delicious foods and meeting amazing people. Whether rocking a 6-month house gig in China atop Changsha’s luxurious 5-star Intercontinental Hotel; sharing the stage with Shania Twain, Wynonna, or Trooper; or performing on the back deck of one of Celebrity X’s largest ships while overlooking the San Francisco Bay at sunset, our travels have given us some incredible Instagram moments.

These days we travel less and are home more, as work-from-home parents (two under 2) and it’s equally fulfilling. Alongside running our super cool production company and chasing after the kiddos, we’re heavy into the recording process as we work to finalize our first full length album which we produced and recorded with Emm Gryner.
