As both a professional guitar player and audio engineer based out of NightBird Studios in Los Angeles, CA, I specialize in creating professional level modern productions from the ground up, as well as taking songs to A-list quality through mixing and mastering.
Chandler has played in bands professionally since the age of 14, and attended Berklee College of Music in Boston where he received a degree in Music Production and Engineering. Immediately after he moved to Los Angeles, CA and began working at NightBird Recording Studios, one of LA's most premiere and high level recording facilities. Through his work with both A-list and upcoming artists, he can provide you with top notch work for a reasonable price.

Interview with Chandler Martin
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I try to work as efficiently as possible. The more you get right earlier the better your production will sound. Whether it's mixing, tracking guitar, or making a full production, it's always my philosophy to get it right the first time to avoid problems later down the line.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Between gigging consistently as well as working full time at NightBird Studios, there's no shortage of projects. There's always something new coming in the door!
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Why choose? Both have their place in the audio world. Analog brings a warmth to mixes that digital cannot, but digital workflows are often more conducive to the modern songwriting process
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Listen carefully to what each instrument is trying to accomplish in the mix/production, and gracefully move them toward their intended purpose. The last thing you want to do with a production is try to make it something it's not.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I work in a variety of genres. I would say my three most comfortable genres are hard rock, hip-hop, and EDM production styles.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Flume inspires me through his incredibly creative uses of delay, flanger, phaser, and chorus.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most times clients come to me for mixing and production work, although I also do session work as a guitarist.
