Producer, Mixer, Mastering Engineer with 100,000,000+ streams on Spotify. Based in Nashville, TN on Music Row.
I'm Robbie Artress and I produce, mixing, and master all kinds of music here at my studio on Music Row in Nashville, TN. I primarily work in country music, but I also love working on rock and pop music and my favorite artists of all time are Blink 182 and Taylor Swift.
I've worked on a variety of projects with brands like Universal Music, Fender, Spotify, SiriusXM, Warner Music, ABC, YouTube, AirBnb, Converse, Cracker Barrel, Keeley Electronics, and Heritage Guitars to deliver a professional result.
I'm not satisfied until the projects I work on are able to compete with the highest level of production, mixing, and mastering.
Feel free to reach out to see if working together would be a good fit for your music!

Interview with Robbie Artress
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Welcome To The Block Party by Priscilla Block was my first major label album release as a producer, with a co-writing credit on "Heels In Hand". I co-produced it with two of my good friends and it's exactly the type of country album that I would love and listen to in my own time. We put together the absolute best band and engineering team in Nashville to make it happen and I couldn't be more proud of how it turned out.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! I work mostly in the box, but nothing can beat a good analog chain on the way in and there are still things analog gear can do that digital just can't yet. But at the same time, there's so much that digital can do that would never be possible in the analog world.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I won't stop working on a project until I've exceeded every expectation and within any necessary deadlines. I'm in the service industry and treat every project with the same attention and respect.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: Starting with recording my own band, I ended up studying Audio Production in college, interning and assistant engineering at RCA Studio A, became the chief engineer at Layman Drug Company, and spend most of my time working out of my own studio now.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: The song is always the most important thing. A good song will almost produce itself, while a bad song will never feel right, no matter how many tricks you throw at it.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I end up working on a lot of country music, but I also love rock, pop, Americana, and anything else that might come my way.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I love the technical side of the process, but I'm also a musician, so at the end of the day I'm always working towards making the project feel right musically.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I've had 10+ years of experience in Nashville working with the best producers, engineers, and musicians in the world. The bar here is high and I learn something new every day being surrounded by that much talent.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: It depends on the needs of the project, but I always make sure to have a conversation with the artist or producer about exactly what they need and when they need it.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have my own studio on Music Row where I do all of my work. I mainly work in Pro Tools on ATC Monitors with a few select pieces of analog hardware and way too many plugins.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Serban Ghenea, Neal Avron, Eric Valentine, Tom Lord Alge, and Ted Jensen are the biggest influences on my mixing, mastering, and production.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I typically produce, mix, and master singles albums for my clients.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love that it's different every day and I can always challenge myself to try something new.
