I learned the value of mixing as soon as I was involved in my first recording experience; a record by Carole King for Lou Aldler’s Ode label in 1976. I played guitar, keyboards and sang backup in Carole’s recording and touring band for the second half of the ‘70s and well into the ‘80s, doing 6 records with her, 3 of them as co-producer. I also recorded two records for Capitol with my band Navarro during that time.

My mixing philosophy is this...

20 years experience working in mastering houses throughout the US.

10 years developing a dedicated mastering environment and mastering techniques.

Six studio monitoring systems from Genelec to Radio Shack Minimus 7s.

Utilizing a combination of analog and digital gear. Neve, Shadow Hills, Massenburg, ATR 102, and mastering software.
