My guest today is F. Reid Shippen, a multiple Grammy Award-winning mixer, engineer, and record producer whose credits include 10 Grammy Award-winning albums and over 100 #1 singles.
His years of experience as a recording and mix engineer span multiple genres, and feature a wide range of artists such as Ingrid Michaelson, Kenny Chesney, India.Arie, Cage the Elephant, Little Big Town, CeCe Winans, Steven Tyler, Colony House, Lucie Silvas, and Dierks Bentley.
In 2019, Shippen received the Academy of Country Music award for Audio Engineer of the Year. He has previously served as co-chair of the Producers & Engineers Wing of NARAS, and currently serves as the Chief Creative Officer for the music production house, The Music Playground.
An advocate for music education, Reid co-teaches a class at Middle Tennessee State University and is a co-founder of SongFarm.org giving kids equal access to creativity by building free recording studios in underprivileged high schools nationwide. He currently works out of his private Robot Lemon studio, located in the Green Hills area of Nashville.
Reid has been a guest on the podcast before for episode RSR019 where we talked more about his background. So today we will focus on mixing and see what we can learn about mixing better records in our studios.
