    I enjoyed working with Jason to finalize one of my tracks. I'll be hitting him up again, for sure. I decided to go with Jason because of his experience with Americana music. Jason provided me with the context I needed to understand how he came up with the mix. A great interaction.

Interview with Jason Richmond

How would you describe your style?
Although I have a strong technical background in recording, I'm a musician first and I bring a musical, artistic, and creative approach to what I work on.
What type of music do you usually work on?
I work on all types of music, but I generally get called for jazz, blues, rock, R&B, world, and classical projects.
What's your strongest skill?
The ability to listen closely to a song and find it's direction.
What do you bring to a song?
I hope that I bring a fresh approach and unique perspective to any given song, but the main desire is that I find the strength of the artist and the song itself and enhance that in a way that not on captures what the artist is trying to create but surpasses it.
Tell us about your studio setup.
I work out of many studios, but do most of my mixing in my home studio. I have a hybrid system running Pro Tools HD and sum through a summing mixer with Apogee Symphony converters. I utilize a variety of outboard gear including Chandler TG2 preamps, Chandler LTD-2 master compressor, Dramastic Obsidian Compressor, Crane Song Ibis EQ, and a variety of other outboard gear. I generally use plugins from Massey, Sound Toys, Waves, Brainworx, and Avid. I monitor through a Crane Song Avocet and Focal Twin monitors.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I'm inspired by all types of music when it is built on great musicianship, brilliant songs, and interesting production. Some people I'm inspired by include; Tchad Blake, Bill Frisell, Bob Dylan, Miles Davis, D'Angelo, Paul Simon, Jacquire King, Quincy Jones, and Brad Mehldau. Just to name a few.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Primarily more and more of my work is mixing, although I still do quite a bit of tracking and production work.
