    Tim worked on a project for my band (Summer Plans) and it was absolute mixing wizardry. He really brought the songs to life, and was efficient with everyone's time in the studio, too.

Interview with Tim Brennan

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

  2. A: Although I have a very diverse skill-set, the majority of the work I do is Mixing and vocal editing.

  3. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  4. A: Over the last 8 years I have been very fortunate to have worked in and with a very wide variety of genres. This experience has given me a

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: Currently I have a very nice acoustically treated studio on 2nd ave. in downtown Nashville that is very well balanced and ideal for mixing and mastering. In addition there is a very well treated isolation booth perfect for overdubs of all sorts and ideal for vocals.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: Every project is unique and has it's own particular requirements. Generally I'll sit with the client and discuss any creative ideas they might have and adapt my skill set to the creative vision of the project to get as close as possible to the artists vision as possible.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: Sonic Bliss

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: After spending countless hours in various studios around the country, working on music from such a wide variety of genres, I have developed amazing intuition when it comes to how to approach a mix and how to edit vocals.

  13. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  14. A: The majority of my clients have been in the rock, pop and country genres.

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

  16. A: A great production always starts with a great song.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: Do I have to pick just one?

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: I consider myself to be a chameleon of sorts. As a very well versed and experienced studio engineer, I have learned to adapt my skill-set to fit the songs, artist and message of the projects I work on without forcing my own personal style on anything I work on.

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

  22. A: It's been a long journey! I started making music when I was about 13 years old. By the time I hit high school, I had build a very, very, modest studio and started making records with all the local bands in my home town. After I turned 21 I moved to Nashville and started knocking on doors until eventually I landed a great internship at an amazing studio called Vibe 56 on music row. That was about 14 years ago! Eventually that lead to quite a bit of freelance work and a house engineer gig at the historic Westwood studios where the Dixie Chicks, Kenny Chesney and numerous platinum selling country and rock artists got their start. In addition to building a steady roster of freelance clientele, I managed to get an amazing mix assistant gig with a very prominent mix engineer and eventually went completely freelance. the rest is history!

  23. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  24. A: A solid Pro-tools rig, a set of focal twins, a set of NS-10's, a set of sony 7506 headphones and an acoustically sound room is all I need to make a great sounding record.

  25. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  26. A: The more specific about your artistic vision you can be the better when talking to any professional but always keep your expectations realistic and reasonable.

  27. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  28. A: I generally ask a lot of questions but the main one is always, What is your favorite record?

  29. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  30. A: The biggest misconception is that a great mix can create a hit record. Sadly it's not the way the business works or I'd have a grammy by now!

  31. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  32. A: The first thing most people ask is"Can I hear a few things you've worked on that might be in a similar vein to where we would like to go?" My answer is always, no problem! I love sharing my work with others almost as much as I love making the records themselves! The second thing most people ask is "What are your rates?" Every project is unique and the requirements are always a little different.

  33. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  34. A: I love the people who make music as much as the music I make.

  35. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  36. A: I take pride in always completing every project on time and within budget.

  37. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  38. A: I don't think it's a matter of one or the other, but rather use of the right tool (or combination of tools) for the job. Does every project need to have the squishy sonics of an analog tape machine or the crisp clarity of a DAW?

  39. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  40. A: I'm always working on several projects but my 2 favorites at the moment are a retro pop record with an up and coming artist Kayce Laine and a beautiful traditional country record with Kelsey May.

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

  42. A: One of the main highlights of my career so far would have to be working on Steven Tylers first ever solo recording "Love Gives" as a tracking engineer. It was surreal hearing his voice coming out of the speakers in the control room after growing up hearing Aerosmith's records on the radio everyday.
