From Bedroom Recording to Working in a Real Recording Studio...
The studio business isn't an easy one.
Most studios are the blood, sweat and tears of a producer. A producer that's worked hard to hustle and build up their business.
So when you're trying to get your feet wet, it's not typical to find a studio job, right? Usually it's an unpaid internship that you apply for.
Yet, the exact opposite happened to me.
A prominent producer in my city invited me to come work at his recording studio.
Did I intern there? Nope.
Did I ask him for a job? Nope.
Instead, he asked me.
And since I moved in, I've been working on records from all over. From my city, to Chicago, to as far away as Ireland.
The Unusual Path to Producing
My path, probably like yours, hasn't been the typical intern-to-producer roadmap.
Instead, back in 2009 I bought my first pair of KRK monitors and Fast Track Ultra interface to record my own music. As far as I was concerned, I wouldn't ever need a recording studio again.
I toiled working on my own songs. Sometimes taking a month to mix just one song!
The result? The mixes sounded awful.
It was a huge eye-opener. That mixing was, in fact, not that easy.
The bug bit me, and I fell down the rabbit hole to get better at mixing.
Interning – Aka: The Human Door-Stop
In 2011, I moved to New York City and lucked out with an internship at a major New York recording studio.
Problem was, I felt like a human doorstop. My job was to grab coffee and hold doors for clients. Rarely was I allowed to actually see a session in action.
What do you do when the door is closed, even when you made it into the building?
I watched tons of YouTube tutorials, and bought online courses.
Since learning on my own was taking way too long, and my internship felt just as slow, I went online. I soaked up all the information I could and put it into practice.
Freelancing as a Producer
Upon moving back home in 2014, I hit the ground running with client work with local bands.
As a freelancer, I worked in:
• Rehearsal Spaces
And eventually rented my own mixing space. And in 2017, I'm working in a fully outfitted recording studio.
How Did I Get There?
Through those years of study, practice, and working with clients, I learned a few things.
Mixing is subjective. The artist, song, performance, and what you ate that day all have an effect on your work.
What I needed was a system for mixing. A strategy I could rely on again and again.
And from 2009 to 2017, I built that system.
