My guest today is Ross Hogarth a Multiple Grammy winning producer, engineer, and mixer with a long and varied list of credits in musical styles from blues, to reggae, to heavy metal, and rock. Gov’t Mule, Roger Waters, The Black Crowes, Shawn Colvin, John Mellencamp, R.E.M.and Jewel are just some of the artists that Ross has worked with in over three decades of recording.

Growing up in NY during the influential punk scene of the 70’s, and making his way to San Francisco’s exploding New Wave scene and Southern California’s seminal rock scene. Ross evolved from doing live production and sound on the road with Jackson Browne, David Lindley, Fleetwood Mac and Little Feat into producing, engineering, and mixing Grammy winning srtists in the studio. And In 1986 Ross established Hoax Productions to have the freedom to promote and produce top names as well as newly discovered talent.

Refusing to let himself be pigeonholed in any one musical genre his studio work runs the gamut from the heavy metal insanity of Motley Crue and Coal Chamber to the Grammy-winning Keb’ Mo’ release Slow Down to recent releases by Van Halen, Grammy winning Ziggy Marley and the Sick Puppies.
