As a professional guitar player, my work as a staff engineer at Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, TN has greatly influenced my recording process and mentality when it comes to parts. Get professional guitar parts, mixes, or full song production from someone who has worked with top artists both inside and out of the studio!
From a young age, Bobby knew that music was his calling. After spending his youth cutting his teeth both by playing in and recording local bands, he decided to further his knowledge. That lead him to Boston, where he began studying at Berklee College of Music. From working with top level musicians and engineers, he garnered some much needed know-how, and began to set himself apart. After graduating with a degree in Music Production and Engineering, he set his sights on Nashville. Once there, he immediately immersed himself in the local music scene. When he isn't gigging or tracking with local bands, he is on staff as an engineer at Sound Emporium, one of the most historic and successful commercial studios in Music City. Through all of these experiences, he believes that he can offer you top notch tracks at a very affordable rate!

Interview with Bobby Danzi
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Whatever walks through the door next! I play with a few bands, as well as working at a recording studio full time, so there is never a shortage of things to do!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Listen as much as possible. Listen to everything. When it comes to leisure, listen old music AND new music, and music in different styles. When it comes to a session or playing a gig, listen to the rest of the band before you listen to yourself. Remember to serve the song, not your ego.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I typically work on more rock and pop-rock music, but I'm no stranger to working on things ranging from jazz, to country, to metal.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I pride myself on bringing the right parts to the song. I'm able to adapt my own style to best suit whatever project I find myself working on, which, I believe, is really beneficial to the end result. I really try to check my ego at the door. This is a service industry, after all!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I LOVE overdubs. Creating layers is one of my favorite things in the world. It really takes a song to the next level, and helps to take it from being a "track" to a "record."
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: People that really inspire me are players like Pete Thorn, Derek Wells, and Tim Pierce. They all seem to move from session to session, style to style so easily. They're able to bring their own unique skillsets to the music without being too heavy handed, allowing each individual artist to shine. They are truly masters of the craft. On the engineering end, I love the work of Joe Barresi, Vance Powell, Sylvia Massey and Steve Albini. They all, quite the opposite of the guitarists, leave such a huge sonic stamp on their records. They both come into play in different ways. I find that to be really interesting and cool.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The work I do most often is writing guitar parts for songs that start with very little, maybe just an acoustic guitar and a vocal. I have a conversation with the artist and try to best interpret their vision for the song into guitar parts and layers unique to their sound and vibe. It's an interesting way to work, as it often becomes very definitive of the overall sound of the record.
