Silas Brown on Mixing and Mastering Classical Music

I had a really captivating conversation with Silas Brown for SonicScoop. “Instead of pictures of sports stars or half naked people on my wall, I actually had my entire bedroom wallpapered with pictures of synthesizers.”

Ryan Freeland on His Studio, Career, and the Impact of Sound

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Ryan Freeland for SonicScoop. Over the past 20 years, he has worked with artists like Aimee Mann, Bonnie Raitt, The Milk Carton Kids, Loudon Wainwright III, Aaron Neville, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, and Ray LaMontagne. (Also, Ryan’s studio is really gorgeous!)

Hot Dad on The Tonight Show

My friend Erik Helwig (a.k.a. Hot Dad) received a nice shout-out from Jimmy Fallon recently. Because of his history of brilliant TV theme reworkings, they asked him to write a new theme song for The Tonight Show. As usual, he totally nailed it! You can check out his amazingly absurd comedy videos and tracks—some of which I’ve had the pleasure of mixing—on YouTube and Bandcamp.

Bringing the Groove

Billboard recently premiered “Legend” and “Fuel to the Fire” by Spencer Ludwig. You can catch the first track, which Billboard calls an “ear-candy jam”, in the official promos for season 12 of NBC’s The Voice. Spencer will also be performing on February 4 at the NFL Honors awards.

Glass Tactics

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a nice December. I took most of the past month off–especially from the internet–to do a little reorganizing (of my time, projects, backups, apartment). After taking a quick break, I’m very excited about 2017.

Anyway, back to the music! I had the pleasure of working with Glass Tactics last year on their debut EP. They’re a great group and I’m really glad that we were able to work together on this project. The EP will be released on February 3. If you’re in NYC, you can catch them live at their EP release show on Saturday, February 4 at Arlene’s Grocery.

Atwood Magazine recently premiered the band’s new single “Pavement”. Writer Mitch Mosk wrote, “‘Pavement’ provides a perfect introduction to Glass Tactics’ colorful mix of catchy, big melodies, driving riffs, and thrashing guitars–not to mention their refreshingly fresh outlook on the world.”
