RSR259 – Eric Masse – 3-Time Grammy Losing Producer/Engineer of Miranda Lambert, Rayland Baxter, and bringing Low-Level concepts to High-Level brains

Eric talked about recording Willie Nelson, Miranda Lambert, and Rayland Baxter, how API helped his home studio sound pro, how to record fantastic drums, why time spent on a record does not equal quality, and the most common mistakes with songwriting.

My guest today is Eric Masse a Producer and engineer living in Nashville since 2006. 

Self-described as a three times Grammy losing producer originally from Grand Rapids MI, later living in Boston. Eric is a fan of great songs and focuses on producing (or co-producing), cutting, and mixing the records he makes.  He loves European Football and is a Chelsea FC supporter.  He loves giving people the thumbs up. He has a beard and almost exclusively wears plain black t-shirts.

After graduating Berklee School of Music in Boston he moved to Nashville to intern at Blackbird Studio by day and tend bar at night. Masse’s first studio was called "Cabin In the Woods" (Fairview, TN), followed by Idiot Dog (Music Row), and finally, The Casino (East Nashville), where he works today. When a record calls for a larger studio, he prefers Southern Ground.

In 2014, while playing in a golf tournament, Masse met eminent Nashville producer, Frank Liddell. That connection led to a collaboration that has born several projects, most notably Miranda Lambert’s 2016 release, The Weight of These Wings produced by Masse, Liddell, and Glenn Worf which won the Academy of Country Music's Album of the Year award.

RSR258 – Michael Beinhorn – The Art Of Remote Pre Production

Michael talked about producing records remotely, how to help the artists find their why, the intersection of commerce and art, how to connect feelings to music, and traveling worldwide with his remote portable production studio.

My guest today is Michael Beinhorn who has lived his life in the pursuit of artistic expression, first as a visual artist, then as a performer, and finally as a record producer. 

Michael began in 1979 as co-founder of the seminal New York musical collective Material and has since produced and or recorded a long list of artists including Brian Eno’s “Lizard Point” from “Ambient 4: On Land.”, Herbie Hancock’s Future Shock, which included the groundbreaking cut “Rockit.”,  the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ breakthrough albums “The Uplift Mofo Party Plan” and “Mother’s Milk”.

Michael’s recordings have achieved combined worldwide sales of more than 45 million albums helping to define the careers of a diverse range of artists, including Soul Asylum, Hole, Soundgarden, Ozzy Osbourne, Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Social Distortion, Korn, and Mew. 

Over the past 20 years, Michael has become increasingly aware of the concerns facing artists and producers alike who are trying to maintain their creative ethics, personal expression and focus in the recording process. He has increasingly devoted his attention to artist development, the changing music industry and various ways to improve the quality of contemporary popular music. 

For this reason, he has been increasingly active in mentoring fellow artists and aspiring record producers. He has extensively addressed these (and other pertinent) issues in his book, “Unlocking Creativity” published by Hal Leonard. He has also started an innovative online consulting service (Beinhorn Creative) that remotely provides all the functionality of music production to artists who would otherwise, be unable to afford these services.

RSR257 – Packy Lundholm – Chip Tunes, Tetris Guitars, Vulfpeck & I Fight Dragons

Packy talked about creating Chip Tunes 8 bit music with I Fight Dragons, producing with members of Vulfpeck, How to create cool lofi sounds in your studio, the secret to great fuzz guitar tone, and how an artist benefits from working with a producer.

My guest today is Packy Lundholm a Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer/engineer. He plays the guitar with Nintendo rock band I Fight Dragons, who just released their third LP "Canon Eyes" and celebrated their 10th anniversary. Packy runs his recording operation out of the B-room at Sound Vault Studios in Chicago, where he records various artists, and works as a session musician at Rax Trax Recording and Gravity Studios as well. 

In recent years he has collaborated on several projects with Vulfpeck keyboardist Woody Goss, sharing credits with Vulf members Theo Katzman and Joe Dart. Outside of the studio he performs live in different contexts, from jobbing bands and bar mitzvahs to improv-heavy tributes to Traffic and the Grateful Dead.

Packy writes and records his own music from time to time, his most recent full-length release being 2016's American Soccer. His music draws heavily from early power pop influences with touches of psychedelic rock and Americana. He is slowly brewing plans to release more singles over this year, hopefully culminating in another full-length record in the nearest possible future.

Recently I saw a new video that Packy posted recording the song Don’t Leave A Thing Behind in his studio and I knew he would be great to have on the show to talk about recording yourself in the studio as well as playing with and producing other artists.

RSR250 – Anthony Gravino – How To Mix in Pro Tools & Console Hybrid

Anthony talked about mixing using a hybrid of Pro Tools & API The Box console, printing to analog tape, favourite outboard and plugins for compression and eq, mixing in production before you mix, where to set your eq filters, and much more!

My guest today is Anthony Gravino an independent music maker based in Chicago, IL. He has worked with a wide variety of artists across multiple genres as a producer, recording engineer, mixing engineer, mastering engineer and musician. Anthony has been on the show before for Episode RSR156 when we talked about how he makes records in-studio capturing great sounds for Indie rock, jazz, and other genres.

His private studio, known as The Drake, is equipped with a large collection of classic recording equipment and instruments with a focus on comfort, flexibility and high-quality sound. Anthony loves to create compelling recordings with exceptional sonics and is always striving to serve the song.

We had the pleasure of hosting a mix clinic in 2019 at Shirk Studios owned by Steven Shirk with Rockstars travelling from all over the country to join us for the weekend which was packed and really fun to do. And so I thought I would have Anthony back on the show today to talk more in-depth about his mixing process both through the Sphere console at Shirk and in the box with Pro Tools.
