My guest today is Chad Brown, an engineer, producer, gear guilder, and Grammy winning mixer living in East Nashville TN, but hailing from the "Birthplace of Country Music", Bristol VA. In 2015 Chad received a Grammy Award for mixing "Shine For All The People" by Mike Farris. He mixed the record right here at The Toy Box Studio through the famous MCI console, and the classic sound won the Grammy for Best Roots Gospel Album of the Year.
My guest today is Jonathan Roye. He is a producer, mixer, musician, and audio blogger from Nashville TN. He shares that knowledge with you through his audio blog at JonathanRoye.com and Youtube channel called Mix Notes.
He is also the creator of Woodshedaudio.co a boutique sample and loop library in Nashville TN. If you are producing music using drums samples you can find a growing library of cool sounds to fill in the sweet spots of your production. With sample packs like Shaker & Tamborine they keep it focused and easy to use.
My guest today is Bob Olhsson a master audio engineer and producer with 50 years of experience. Bob has a truly remarkable career path that has led him from Detroit to San Francisco to (Hearts of) Space and finally back to Nashville.
He was one of only two people to ever hold every engineering position at Motown Records in Detroit during which he recorded and mastered 100 top ten singles 42 of which were #1 hits. He even recorded Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On, Stevie Wonder, and Motown’s first successful rock act, Rare Earth.
My guests are Michael Hardesty and Stephen Turney. Together they created 24HR Records a Youtube web series that hand picks a team of musicians, locks them in a studio, and tasks them with writing and recording three original songs in 24 hours.
Each episode is brought to you from a different recording studio, and even The Toy Box Studio has been home to one of these creative all nighters. Check the video out here!
