    Steve’s vision, attention to detail and skill is everything I’ve ever wanted and looked for in a producer!

    Great guitarist! He pushes himself to get the best mixes and sounds. Thank you Steve

    I've worked with Steve on a number of projects! I can't say enough good things! He is a fantastic player, engineer, photographer, cinematographer... he is all things creative and killer at them, but an even better person! I'd work with Steve any day of the week, and am extremely happy with everything he's worked on!

Interview with Steve Kinney

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  12. A: An Apollo Interface Chandler Limiter Roland Space Echo Fender Thinline Telecaster & a U47

  13. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  14. A: I've been making music since I was a little kid. Working on old tape portasdudios, and old FL Studio 7. Eventually moving on to pro tools and became a gear head. Landed an internship at Ben Folds studio in Nashville. Studied under Steve Bishir. Eventually got a job like most people. Eventually, I left the corporate world for Wild West of the music world.

  15. Q: How would you describe your style?

  16. A: Always trying to make a wall of sound.

  17. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  28. A: Keith Urban is a huge influence. Oasis Coldplay John Mayer to name a few

  29. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  30. A: Typically, I do full productions. Start to finish. I'll take a demo, and completely rebuild it from the ground up. All tracking, mixing, editing, & mastering. I'll also do a lot of guitar work for clients, electric tracks, bass, and acoustic guitar.
