Tano Brock is a 23 year-old singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. Born and raised in San Francisco, CA, Tano began studying and performing music at a young age and had an almost super-natural knack for it ever since he began banging on a drum at only a few months old. Throughout his childhood, Tano accompanied his family to various music camps in California where he was exposed to music from all over the world. At 6 years old, he began studying darbuka, a Middle Eastern drum. He then started studying piano at age 7, and at 12 began teaching himself guitar. In his early teens he started playing saxophone/clarinet, as well as exploring the world of digital recording and production. At age 17, he released his self-produced debut solo album “Bandit” (2014) - which garnered significant success and launched his career as a composer for synch licensing. In 2019, Tano graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelors degree focused on Music Production & Engineering. He is currently producing for various artists of different styles such as reggaeton artist: La Doña, Indie Pop artist Aya Safiya, Colombian/Ecuadorian artist: Gerson Eguiguren, and Turkish/Azeri duo: BalaBass.

Interview with Tano Brock
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I would say the most common type of work I do for clients is an all-in-one package type of thing: production, mixing, mastering, sometimes even co-writing and arranging too. I like to do everything! Both separately and together.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My long time writer/producer inspiration is Ryan Tedder. He is the type of producer I aspire to be: a bandleader, songwriter, producer, hitmaker, and all-round collaborator.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: The center of my studio setup is a 6' 8" wide workstation desk I built myself, complete with monitor stands and 36U of rack space. I run a Universal Audio system (hardware and plugins). The room is completely treated with 3" thick rock wool acoustic panels. I work mostly in the box, but I'm currently acquiring more outboard gear, and I'm starting to delve into the analog world.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I would say my strongest skill is bringing a song to finished, polished, perfect product. One of favorite parts about being a producer and engineer is being able to create a final product. That's what I do best.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! In this day and age it's almost impossible to ignore digital, but including some analog parts in our digital world makes it sound much sweeter :)
