As some of my clients already know, I have been mixing music for live to tape television, at Sound Design Corporation in Hollywood with master mix engineer Paul Sandweiss.
In the last few months we have works on shows like the BET Awards, Radio Disney Music Awards, Sunday Best, and The Emmy’s. Just recently we have worked with artists such as Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Fifth Harmony, and Ariana Grande.
This is all an extension of my evolution into music production for live recordings, live mixing, and alternative forms of record making.
Here are some pictures of the BET Awards mobile recording. Tucked away in a somewhat funky trailer was our awesome modular mixing studio. Yamaha CL5 and two redundant Fairlight multitrack recorders.

For the better part of January I was recording the east coast concerts for Capitol Records recording artist Sam Smith. I went on the road with Record Plant Remote and owner/ engineer Kooster Mcallister. Expect a live Sam Smith album in the near future.
We had the chance to take a pit stop at Ryan Hewitt’s mix room in Nashville.

I tend to record rock bands that love drinking beer and turning amps up to an unhealthy level. A few weeks ago I had to privilege to work with The George Gee Swing Orchestra. These guys are serious business in an old school way. We cut 25 songs in a single day. This may be a record for me in terms of the number of songs recorded to (tracking) completion in one day. 6 horns, piano, upright bass, drums, two vocals. No messing around to be had. It was a good time.
