Kfir Gov is an internationally awarded music producer, mixer and lead singer for the Electronica Rock band - Seek Irony.
Kfir is also the head Instructor of the "Advanced Music Production and Mixing" class at The Recording Conservatory of Austin.
On one hand, it is a producer's job to develop a great music product for the music industry to sell, but then on the other it is the artist's job to keep the music art that is real and true, representing what the artist believes in.
Being a musician and an artist himself, Kfir knows what it is like to be both the artist and the producer, giving him the experience and the sensitivity to be able to walk in both sides' shoes while working in the studio.
"Evil Snail Studios is not just about recording music, my goal is to help artists write and record great songs, great music and through that to find their unique voices.
Any professional artistry requires talent, we all know that - but anything intended to become great also requires time, patience, dedication and devotion combined with a lot of experience.
At Evil Snail Studios we choose to focus on the music so we give artists the freedom to focus on their art. We choose not to bill you by the hour but work with you per project, whether it's a single, an EP or an album.
My belief is that your final product reflects on my name as a producer so I strive to help you accomplish the best of what you can be and never leave a project unfinished.
I look forward to helping you achieve your vision."

"Kfir is an absolutely stellar producer/mixer and artist. It’s always hard when you let someone else in to your own artistry. It feels threatening, and intrusive. I have never worked with anyone who pays such respect and loyalty to your craft. He sincerely wants the best for you, as his work ethic is through the roof. His work is the best of the best and I do not say this lightly.
If you have chance to work with him. Do it before his demand is too high. Because that time is coming." - Rick Lambert/ Empty Trail
"Kfir is an impressively creative individual. He has a deep care for every project he puts his hands to and you can expect a World Class experience. His musical tools are in every sense an extension of his creative ability. Your inner thoughts and wants will soon become a reality when investing in time with Kfir. If you feel stuck in any sense of musical production, composition, or just even need a Professional opinion, don’t hesitate, expand your abilities and watch a master nurture your vision to life." - Erik Rhine
"Kfir is by far the best producer I have ever worked with. The amount of time and consideration that he gave to each song we recorded with my band Severance far exceeded anything I could have hoped for. He pays great attention to detail and will not put his name on a product unless it's up to the same quality and standard as any of today's top industry professional's. He's kind, considerate, and very easy to work with. I could not recommend Kfir and Evil Snail Studios enough!" - Shane Wallin/Severance
"Working with the Gov brothers, Kfir and Rom, as well as engineer Kevin Abbenante at Evil Snail Studios has been a great experience. These guys have friendly personalities that make for a relaxed and comfortable environment in the studio. Rom is a pro Level drummer and was able to lay down drum tracks that perfectly fit my songs in just a few takes with minimal rehearsals. Kfir took my songs and was able to build them to their fullest potential according to the way I wanted them to sound. His producing style is very encouraging and open to collaberation. Both Kfir and Kevin work well together and make sure they get the takes they need to get the recordings sounding the best they can be. These are definitely the best recordings I've done up to this point in my career and I look forward to working with them again. I recommend working with this team." - Lloyd Miller.
"Working with Kfir and Kevin of Evil Snail Studios has been a very unique recording experience that I have found nowhere else. They have a unique philosophy that helps the artist get the very best out of both the session and themselves. They do not work by the hour. Rather, they focus on getting a project to its highest potential. By eliminating the stress that accompanies hourly rates, they make it much easier to focus on achieving a great performance and recording." - Collin Mullins.
"I needed a nice room to track drums and Evil Snail Studios was a great solution without breaking the bank. Evil Snail Studios is also a great place to rehearse. Great people, solid equipment, and a clean space all add up to set them apart from any other rehearsal space in town." - Joel Schisler.
