Eight Floors Above Audio Mastering Co. is an Ottawa, Canada based company owned & operated by myself, Dave Williams.

I have been mastering records since 2008, for both digital and vinyl reproduction (previously under the name Rock Among Us Mastering, a carry-over from a recording project in my youth).

I obtained a degree in Music/Musicology with elements of Sonic Design from Carleton University here in Ottawa;  worked for many years as an audio engineer for T-Base Communications, producing audio textbooks for visually impaired students;  and play/have played in a handful of international touring bands:  Crusades (No Idea Records), The Steve Adamyk Band (Dirtnap Records), Sedatives (Deranged Records), among others.  I am also a husband, father, and a contributor to Razorcake Magazine.

As an engineer who specializes in independent music production, it is of great importance that I offer very reasonable rates and quick turnaround times, and you can get in touch at dave@eightfloorsabove.com for a quote or a chat.

Below is a frequently updated list of the records I’ve worked on.  Regular label clients include Dirtnap Records, It’s Alive Records, Dirt Cult Records, P.Trash Records, La-Ti-Da Records, etc.

I’ve also uploaded a selection of these songs to Bandcamp.
