Producer

Rich Pagano as Producer, Mix Engineer and Co-Writer: Rich is lucky. He is sought by the notable (Ian Hunter, Garland Jeffreys, Marshall Crenshaw) and new artists (Gus Birney, Natalie Mishell) that all have one important element in common: they all share a passion for a great song with a clear and infectious hook and look to Rich for definition of arrangement (let it go around one more time/get to the chorus now?), sound (ethereal/punchy/more space?), groove (loose/tight/swing?), lyrics (own your feelings) and definitive style (who are you/who is your audience?). Rich's strengths can also be found in his arranging and co-writing instincts. See artist videos below.

All of the music on this page was recorded or mixed - or both, at Rich Pagano's studio in New York City, New Calcutta Recordings - a full service recording/mix studio and audio editing facility. See promotional videos, also posted below.

It's the singer, not the song that makes the music move along" - Pete Townshend
"We all want a level of success with our music, monetarily or on its artistic merits alone. Let's leave it when it feels great and watch it find its path" - Rich Pagano
