An adjective often used to describe Austin is 'overqualified'. A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, with degrees in Music Production & Engineering and Music Business & Management, Austin opened Renaissance Recordings in his attic, building it up into a professional multi-room facility that would move to Austin, TX over the years.

Along with running his own studio, Austin has also worked as assistant engineer to the legendary Tim Palmer, taught audio at two different institutions, attended Mix With the Masters for a week long seminar with Andrew Scheps, interned at the Blasting Room for Bill Stevenson and Jason Livermore, and acquired a master's degree in Music Production, Technology, and Innovation at Berklee's new campus in Valencia, Spain, with the one and only George Massenburg as his mentor.

Now residing in Fort Collins, CO, Austin is looking to take your mixes to the next level with his 10+ years of expertise.

Reviews of Austin Corley

    I have tracked with Austin as a band and as a solo artist. Both times he worked wonders on the sound. He was really encouraging and honest. I always felt super comfortable around him and he gives great advice. Not only all of those things he works so fast! I can't believe how quickly we got through tracking and then how quickly he turned the finished product around. 10 out of 10 I recommend.

    Austin is a great guy, easy to work with, and has an incredibly open mind when it comes to being in the studio. He has great attention to detail, and will always bring a project to life according to how it is envisioned by the artist.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Austin Corley for my second album of my band "Signos Andinos" "Eterna Primavera" a project that mixes Ecuadorian music with jazz elements. Austin did a fantastic job co-producing, mixing and mastering with astonish results. For more info checkout my band site

    Austin is professional, knows his gear and is a fun person to record with. He's open minded and willing to try wacky ideas out but also keeps the song's best interest in mind.

    My band had live tracked an ep and we're happy how it sounded in the studio but once we brought the mixes home we realized there were problems. Austin was able to take the mix and completely transform it to something we were very proud of.
    He is a pleasure to work with and his work is unbelievable!
