Damon Whittemore - ValveTone

Music producer and engineer

Damon Whittemore - ValveTone on SoundBetter

I'm an NYC and upstate NY based Grammy Award Winning engineer and producer. I've been making records for over 25 years and I'm equally comfortable working as a producer or as a tracking, mixing and mastering engineer. I work out of a number of studios world wide, but Flux Studios and Goodchild Music are my main homes in NYC.

With producing, engineering and mastering experience earned in studios around world, my breadth of experience and unparalleled passion for great recordings puts artists in very capable hands.

I cut my teeth in the years before the digital revolution, and I am equally at home with traditional analog studio techniques and with modern digital workstations. My portfolio of work spans all genres, with a heavy emphasis on rock, blues, bluegrass, classical, jazz and world music.

In addition to well-honed chops as a producer, tracking and mix engineer, I also bring years of experience to the mystery-shrouded art of mastering.

I won a Grammy in 2018 for my work recording the Jazz Vocal Album of the Year with Cécile McLorin Salvant and I have engineered on two other Grammy winning records: Christian McBride "Live At The Village Vanguard" and Béla Fleck "Throw Down Your Heart".

I've also recorded a ton of shows and concerts on location, for clients like NPR, WNYC, the CBC, BBC and BuzzFeed and artists like Abdullah Ibrahim (Live in South Africa), Christian McBride (Live at the Village Vanguard), Cécile McLorin Salvant (Live at The Village Vanguard) and Paul McCartney (Ecce Cor Meum Live at Carnegie Hall).
