This information serves as a testament to the latest pre-production work that Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck has completed. Hopefully this will assist potential candidates for this service in deciding to explore things further!

Keith’s assistance on my latest CD was pivotal, and I was lucky enough to have his help early in my song creation process.

Keith reviewed my previous CDs, so he was familiar with my work. He detected an element of my music I hadn’t noticed, and suggested that I could be even more successful if I tried a different genre. The change has been great for me. On a personal level, I’m really connecting to this different genre, and I feel that the music has benefited as well.

Keith was patient during the initial creation process. I must say that the initial drafts were not great, because I was still trying to find my place within this new space. Keith was there to help guide my focus to an area that listeners were expecting to hear, and once I got on track I was able to take off on my own. Keith helped with a few final thoughts at the end, and also provided thoughtful and detailed descriptions of the tracks. They were very helpful in marketing my music to other people in the industry.

Any artist would benefit from Keith’s insights, experience, and deep knowledge of music and the greater music industry.

Spiritual Haven Reviews:


Keith has been the guiding light on 2 of my CDs - my first, called Native Unit and my most recent, called Serenades. He is also now helping me on a CD in-progress, to be released this summer.

I, and apparently several other artists, have challenged Keith to expand his scope of influence from solely the review phase of a finished product to the development phase of a project. Speaking for myself, I can honestly say that Keith's deep affinity and feel for music and his feedback to me, while I was developing material for my CDs, completely changed my approach. I did re-mixes of my own tracks, based upon Keith's recommendations and, after several days, I realized that I loved them! Keith somehow knew more about what I was striving for as an artist than I did myself!

Speaking as an artist who is looking to create a new 'branch on the tree' of modern music, one who exclusively composes and plays his own tracks, I can unambiguously say that bringing Keith into your project during its development phase is a no-lose proposition. Keith is a uniquely gifted music critic ... and you will wind up with a better product if you use him than if you don't.
