Since 2006 I've been extensively producing, writing, recording, mixing and mastering numerous bands from all over the world.
My career as a music producer started after graduating from the University of Arts Utrecht (HKU) in 2006, receiving a "Master of Music" degree. This eventually led to producing, mixing and mastering hundreds of artists in the past 15 years.
I'm mainly known for my work within the rock and metal world, but through my years of experience performing, recording and composing with many artists in a wide variety of genres I've created a unique approach to sound.
As a performing musician I'm proud to have shared
stages with many iconic bands such as Slayer, Motörhead, Machine Head, Trivium, Fear Factory, Pappa Roach, Killswitch Engage, Avenged Sevenfold and have traveled to international venues over the world.
Next to producing I have a great passion for music composing and sound design for film and art installations. Movies I've worked on have been nominated and premiered on international film festivals such as IDFA, Rotterdam Film Festival, the Berlinale and Biënnale di Venezia.
“While listening to this record the production immediately stands out. This sounds very professional. This is a sound you would expect from a Roadrunner band with big studio budget.”
“With a very professional sound (props for the production) this effortless reaches Nuclear Blast norms”
“It seems the band has found a formula for success by working together with producer Tommie Bonajo, because the new sound elevates the band to a whole new level”
“It’s unbelievable that this album was self released. The production and mix sound perfect and the songs are of great craftsmanship.”
"the Dutch band THE ROYAL presents their second work entitled "Seven" with an impeccable production and mixing."
“A great, crazy tight production (Tommie Bonajo does it again!), the way Dream Theater should have sound on their first record.”
“The sound of the album is amazing and from very high quality. If you didn’t know they are from The Netherlands, you would think this is an American band, without being overproduced.”
"Because of the great production of this disc, all aspects of the band's music sound exactly like they’re supposed to and with that alone they are at the top of their genre in this little country."
“Count in, with all this brute musical showmanship, the powerful production from Tommie Bonajo and you know you have a great energetic record in your hands.”
“I wanted to give it a three star review, which means, great disk! But because of the awesome, crystal clear production I wil throw in an extra half star. The sound is often overlooked by unsigned bands without a big budget, but not on this record”
