I'm Matt Kass and I've been working as a producer, mixer and musician in studios nationally for over 10+ years. I bring a deep musical knowledge, an intuitive creative sense and hard work ethic to my collaborations. Whether I'm producing, mixing or playing, my style is a blend of musicality, technical skill, and sonic creativity.
Originally from Philadelphia, I'm currently based in the vibrant hub of East Nashville, TN which has the highest concentration of musicians/studios per capita out of anywhere in the world. It's a truly inspiring place to live and work, and I have access to some of it's best studios and musicians.
I specialize in indie, rock & pop, with an emphasis on textures and dynamic arrangements. I approach my work as a conduit for emotional expression, where everything serves the song, vibe and performance.
in 2008, I won "Best Live Album" at the Indie Music Awards for "Tale of Two Cities" by The Brakes, which I produced. in 2013, I co-composed, engineered & mixed the score to the feature length documentary "First Comes Love" for HBO Documentaries. My compositions have aired on National TV shows & commercials, and have garnered over 100+ million impressions.
I also studied ethnomusicology at Cornell University, and have a great knowledge of different types of music from around the world.

Reviews of Matt Kass Music
I've had the pleasure of working with Matt on several projects. He is the among rarest of talents - a seasoned engineer and producer with a truly gifted ear for dynamics, composition and melody; PLUS you get the benefits of a marvelous player and co-writer! Matt has tremendously elevated the quality of everything we've ever worked on together.
I love every piece of music I've heard Matt produce. I've been a fan of his band, which he is the producer for, for a long time and his music is always creative, tasteful, and has a beautiful sense of harmony. I always look forward to hearing whatever new project Matt is working on!
Did a project with Matt a few years ago and he did great work. Has a great ear, great ideas and suggestions, but also holds an enormous respect for the artist and the project as a whole. I did vocal tracking, mixing, and mastering with Matt and am thrilled with the result. Would love to work with Matt again if I get the chance. http://mosiemo.com
Matt has an amazing ear and instincts. He writes, produces and plays with the song's best intention in mind. Everything I've done with him has been just great and I look forward to working more with him!
