My guest today is Brandon Bell, a Grammy-winning recording engineer known for his work with Bluegrass, Americana, and Country music artists. Originally from central Arkansas, Brandon moved to Tennessee to study recording at Middle Tennessee State University.
He got his start interning for, and later assisting, renowned recording engineer & producer Gary Paczosa. With Gary he was twice nominated for the Best Engineered non-classical Grammy for Alan Jackson's Like Red on a Rose and Sarah Jarosz's bluegrass album Follow me Down.
Brandon later received a Grammy in 2013 for Best Bluegrass Album for his work on the Steep Canyon Rangers album Nobody Knows You. His other credits at this time include Earl Scruggs, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Chris Thile, Darrell Scott, Dierks Bentley, and Blackberry Smoke.
In 2014 Brandon was hired to be Studio Manager and Chief Engineer at Southern Ground Nashville, a beautiful Nashville recording studio owned by Zac Brown. Brandon has expanded into production with artist Sam Lewis, and he also enjoys working with producer Dave Cobb on records for Robert Randolph, Dylan Leblanc, Dillon Carmichael, Anderson East, Brent Cobb, William Prince, Chris Isaak and John Prine.
