My guest today is Chris Graham, a multi genre Billboard chart breaking mastering engineer who has worked with thousands of artists. He's also the co-host of "The Six Figure Home Studio Podcast" with Brian Hood. Their podcast aims to help audio engineers make a full time living from the comforts of their home studio. Chris has a passion for seeing audio engineers make a solid living from their skills, and he thinks there's nothing cooler than when people "fire their boss" so they can go full time in music.

Chris has been on the podcast a couple of times already which you can check out on episodes 72 and 118 if you want to learn more about his mastering business Chris Graham Mastering. But today we are going to focus on his newest passion and website HomeStudioLessons.com where you can book one on one lessons with a professional audio engineer, and gett face to face teaching right from the comfort of your own home studio where it really counts!
