Sean, a producer/engineer with a wide variety of technical and artistic skills, owns Blue Grotto Sound, a recording studio in Nashville. His experience of 19 years ranges from music recording, production and arrangement to television post production, film sound design and live music engineering.
My main focus is engineering - I studied audio engineering in South Africa where I graduated top of my class. I soon found a job as a post-production engineer working on TV and radio commercials, TV shows, event audio, corporate videos etc. During this time, I started working with bands and artists and fell into music production.
Fast-forward 19 years and here I am in Nashville as owner of an award-winning studio, working on all things audio related - music engineering and production, post-production audio, podcasts and audiobooks.
I love all things audio and always aim to bring excellence to each and every project no matter the style or budget.

Wish I had ears like Sean's. He brought out grooves in songs that I didn't even see it there. and the mixes always sound so ear-candy and tight. Period.
Sean gets it. Even before you can name it!
It ain't my first time working with Sean, and won't be the last either

Great communication, easy to work with, and we look forward to making more music with Sean in the future.
Sean has a sound that just ties everything together! Meanwhile, he is detailed and understanding. What more do I need to say?
This is phenomenal! I have worked on multiple of records with mix engineers during the past years out of Nashville! Sean is definitely TOP NOTCH. We love this tune..thank you so much Sean..we will work out more songs together in the future..
Sean is an amazing mixer. He did such a good job with my EP and turned it around very quickly. With revisions, he did everything I asked him to with seamless ease (getting them back to me within a very short time-frame).
Very experienced. Great communication. Very friendly. Look forward to working with him again!
Sean mastered an EP for my band and we couldn't be happier with the results! This guy is a pleasure to work with!
Great guy to work with! The quality of our music is top of the line, thanks to Sean.
Sean recently mixed and mastered 5 songs for our upcoming CD. He was able to find and capture our energy and sound perfectly. He took our sub par tracks and did magic that brought life to them and hit our overall band sound directly on point. There is no doubt we will work with him in the future. He's very patient with a quick turn around!
Sean mixed and mastered a project for me and it came out more than great.
he was very patient with, understoud very well what I needed.
We went back and forth very open and direct untill we were both happy with the result.
I will work with him again, i already have a new project in the make where I will ask for his skills.
Magic! We sent him our muddy mix and he made it completely magical. Went the extra mile to give us something that was perfectly in line with what we had hoped for in this song. Very timely and professional. Our new go-to sound mixing and mastering master. Thank you for everything Sean!
Sean is flexible and knowledgeable! Easy to work with and communicate with. We'll be using him again!
Extremely professional and patient. He brought the feeling that I wanted to my record and turned it around in unimaginable timeframe. He is a man of the craft and a must-have for the recording artist.
Great professional to work with! Quick delivery and made my track sound professional! I would 100% recommend and hope to be able to work with him again in the future.
It was a connection made in heaven. Sean Spence made my track shine. Loved working with him.
Sean is a great engineer and so easy to work with. His studio is beautiful and I always love the final product!
I have had the pleasure of working with Sean on 20+ yet to be released songs over the last 2 years. I consider him one of the hardest working and most passionate new talents in the exploding creative environment that is Nashville. I can't say enough about his skill as a mix engineer and producer. Sean and his studio are top shelf across the board.
Sean Spence produced, engineered & mixed a cover I did of 7 Nation Army & blew me away with his professionalism & creativity. I am now working on a LP, in which Sean is playing an irreplaceable, invaluable role. Sean is able to understand the artist and highlight their sound, getting the best out of the musician; this is rare in a producer.
My name is Rusty Dean. I am a Nashville based pop artist and producer. I hired Sean for mixing and mastering of a recent EP. Being a producer myself I was able to hear the intricate detail he put into mixing the tracks, which he did in a timely manor.
