I am a Songwriter and Mix Engineer focusing in Metal/Punk/Rock/Pop/Acoustic/Live recordings for the last 18 years. I focus on the hook of a song and how to get that "oomph" into every track I work with.

I am a well received songwriter, accepted for many placements with publishing houses. I have been contracted for my entire last album for worldwide licensing.

I have an Honorable Mention from the International Songwriting Association.

I have been invited to play festivals up throughout the East Coast of the U.S. with my previous bands.

I have ran recurring live recording sessions in Baltimore - Recording bands such as Jimmy's Chicken Shack,Pasadena,Bond & Bentley, Skribe, Kelly Bell Band and Invisible Republic.

I have multiple film credits including a "Best Soundtrack" for a 2005 short film festival in College Park, MD.

I additionally created MMA fighter Mike Young's entrance music.

Interview with Rob Myers

Analog or digital and why?
Analog and Digital. I'm with Andrew Schepps about digital though. The recall is fantastic. I track with as much analog gear as I can, so we have less to do in the mix!
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What reference tracks do you want this to sound like? What's the one thing you think needs the most help?
What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
Be clear about what you want, or I'll be asking a lot of questions. If you're not happy with something of your recording you're giving me, TELL ME. I can probably fix it. In the end, this is all music, let's have some fun with it.
If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
Gibson 335,JCM 800, Neve 1073, Neumann U87, and a decent drum machine to keep me entertained. I hope it has a play along feature! Unless I can bring a bandmate?
Can you share one music production tip?
Pretend you're listening to it for the first time... What would you want to feel from the song?
What type of music do you usually work on?
Most of my music coming through is Rock/Hard Rock.
What do you bring to a song?
I bring a focus to an idea. I enjoy the feeling of when that chorus starts to soar, or a prechorus hits the drop off and you can feel it in your bones! I can get the best performance out of you, I know that.
What's your typical work process?
I bring my sessions in to pro tools and edit/mix/comp as needed to bring out the best results possible. I try to keep all clients as involved as they want to be in the process.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I currently have a 14x13 control room and temporary separate tracking room until the new garage gets finished out for completely isolated drum tracking.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I am a huge fan of the late 90's power pop movement, Mid 90's Metal, and anything Phil Collins and John Fogerty are involved with. Recording wise - Chris Lord Alge, Rob Cavallo, Neal Avron.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Mixing, Vocal recording, Pre-Production album work.
