RSR370 – Sean Giovanni – Helping Artists Reach Music Goals at The Record Shop Nashville

Wika wiki wika... Freeeesh! Gio talked about his start in turntablism, moving to Nashville to find his Hip Hop tribe in Country music, the art of sonic storytelling, why he records at 96k, and his step-by-step process for a great artist production.

My guest today is Sean Giovanni a Producer, Engineer and Owner of The Record Shop in Nashville, TN. Gio has worked with artists such as, John Legend, Big and Rich, Zakk Wylde, Tim McGraw, The Wallflowers, Juicy J, and Lil Jon. 

After moving to Nashville at 20 years old and unable to land an internship, Gio set out to build his own path in the recording industry, with a focus on supporting artists in achieving their creative vision and offering a wide range of content creation services in addition to production. 

A frequent NAMM show panelist, speaker at Belmont, MTSU, SAE, The Recording Academy, Sean has also appeared in interviews with the likes of Adam Audio, Antelope Audio, Make it in Music, The Working Your Way Up Podcast, Recording Connection and many more to discuss topics such as entrepreneurship, time management, building a brand , leading with purpose, overcoming adversity, and much more.
