Jim Scott returns to dig deeper into his story, talk about recording Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and give tips on miking up drums.

Multiple Grammy-winning producer/engineer/mixer, Jim Scott, has worked with many artists since his start with Sting's Dream of the Blue Turtles three decades ago. His discography lists over 200 credits on his website including Dixie Chicks, Tom Petty, the Rolling Stones, Roger Daltrey, Crowded House, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ron Sexsmith, Dweezil Zappa, Styx, Foo Fighters, Johnny Cash, Rage Against The Machine, Santana, Wilco, Lucinda Williams, Nikka Costa, Weezer, and Audioslave. So many great records I had to stop writing them down.

Jim has recorded and mixed records with Rick Rubin and also with our previous guest on the podcast Richard Dodd on Tom Petty’s Wildflowers. In 2006, he built Plyrz Studio in Valencia, CA. An inviting space to make music with a classic Neve 8048 recording console, walls of colorful tapestries adorning rooms full of vintage instruments.

We are going to dive into questions about many of these classic albums that Jim has produced, engineered, and mixed, and just how he got such wonderful sounds.

"Things will sound natural if you allow them that opportunity." #JimScott #AudioEngineer #MusicProducer
