Tyler is extremely mindful of your project. Excellent communication and provided a strong mix of my song. Highly recommended!
Fantastic mixing! Professional radio quality mixes from someone who has worked for years with the biggest names in pop and country!
I worked with Tyler Wright for 7 months on a project that landed us with a meeting at Sony Music Nashville. Tyler is an incredibly talented, and professional engineer, mixer, and producer. He is also extremely reliable, and dedicated to whatever you need to make your artistic vision come to life. His personality will make you feel at ease no matter what your project calls for, and his creativity will prove a tremendous asset.
I have worked with Tyler Wright a bunch when I was living in Nashville and continue to use him for mixing mastering for all of my projects. Guy worked at a ten million dollar studio called the tracking room for years working as a engineer with artists like Taylor Swift, Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, Darius Rucker and the list goes on. He turns out polished radio ready mixes and mastering with out sterilizing your song. A lot of people have been using him on the side in Nashville long before he got on sound better. You wont get a better mix for the money.
Interview with Tyler Wright
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Music is very personal and comes from a special place for a lot of us. It is a privilege to be involved in the process.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I asked some basic questions just to get to know them as a person. Then we move toward the project and what they hope to accomplish.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be clear and upfront about everything. Communication is very important! What are your goals, timeline, budget, expectations, and so on.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Computer, UA 8p, midi keyboard, SM57, Stratocaster
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been playing guitar and in bands since middle school. I didn't take music super seriously until I decided to attend Belmont University in 2016. After graduating in 2017 I managed to get a job as an assistant engineer at The Tracking Room in Nashville. I worked at the studio until it closed in April of 2020. After the studio closed I moved to freelance.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I'm super organized and very laid back. I like to start the creative process and "let things happen as they do".
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Foo Fighters hands down! I've grown up on their music and have great respect for each member of the band. They're also amazing players.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: I am a firm believer in collaboration. 99% of the time, I don't think one person should be doing everything. Bringing at least one other person in on the project can pay dividends.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I mostly produce and mix rock music. After having lived in Nashville for almost five years I have also picked up a lot of country work.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is bringing out the best in the people I work with.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My typical work process involves planning out the entire project with the client, even if we are doing only one song. If I'm doing multiple songs I usually do everything before moving on to the next step. I finish all the tracking, then all the edits, then I mix each song one at a time, usually getting the first mix done to see what the client wants sonically before moving on to the next songs.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup at the moment is a single mixing room with UA hardware and JBL 305 monitors. My mixing rig is mobile and I use my 16 UA inputs to do remote tracking.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Musicians that inspire me: Dave Grohl, Paul McCartney, Rick Nielsen, Noel Gallagher. Other music professionals: Steve Albini, Gil Norton, Butch Vig, Mutt Lange.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common work I do for clients is mixing and editing, followed by production and tracking.
