My guest today is Dave Hillis who started his career as a 17 year old guitarist for the legendary thrash metal band "MACE." Dave also spent ten years alongside legendary producer Rick Parashar, at Seattle's famed  London Bridge Studios, during the birth of the Grunge era where he worked as the engineer on Pearl Jam's debut album  "Ten" , "Mother Love Bone", the movie soundtrack for "Singles", Alice in Chains, Blind Melon, The Seattle Symphony, Love On Ice, and many others.

Dave’s producing and engineering credits include The Afghan Whigs', The Twilight Singers, Kevin Martin of Candlebox, and he has even worked with comedian, Denis Leary among many others.

In 2011,  Dave opened Starlodge Studios in Seattle; a private mix and overdub room featuring vintage and modern recording tools and his beloved AMPEX 1/2" tape Machine for analog magic. And he now lives in Pittsburgh PA where he recently works from a new multi purpose performance hall recording studio called The Sanctuary at Mr Smalls.

Every year in April here in the US it’s tax time, and for those of us working professionally in the recording studio, it means organizing all the income, bills, and expenses of the year to see how we did and then send off a check to the IRS to show our gratitude to Uncle Sam. So today I have a guest that will help us better understand how to organize your recording business, and manage your money the smart way.

My guest today is Jared Eliseo, a licensed CPA with over 10 years of invaluable experience having worked with some of the largest accounting firms and businesses in the world.
