Mastering & Mixing Engineer

Matthew Barnhart on SoundBetter

I've spent my entire life helping people make the records of their dreams. Mastering engineer @ Bob Weston's Chicago Mastering Service. Freelance recording and mixing engineer based out of Electrical Audio in Chicago. Tour manager and FOH mixer for indie legends Superchunk.

I'm a mastering engineer at Bob Weston's Chicago Mastering Service where since 2012 I've mastered and cut vinyl master lacquers for hundreds of releases from Merge Records, Sub Pop, Matador, Fat Possum, Polyvinyl, Jagjaguwar, Numero Group, Goner, and many, many others.

I've also recorded and mixed hundreds of albums (mostly at The Echo Lab and Electrical Audio) and offer remote mixing services.

I co-founded The Echo Lab recording studio in Denton, Texas. I'm a member of the bands Mint Mile and Tre Orsi, and have been tour manager and live sound engineer for Superchunk, Destroyer, Bob Mould, The New Pornographers, Ex Hex, Jawbox, CHVRCHES, and the Mountain Goats.

I love helping people make music. Get in touch!
