Hi, my name is Mark, and I'm a freelance engineer/producer. I mostly work out of my home studio setup, but am currently branching out into other facilities in the Nashville area.
I have been addicted to audio since 2000 when I got my first guitar and began recording. I followed that dream to Nashville in 2008, and have spent the last decade playing, writing, touring, and recording. I now run a home studio in East Nashville, where I spend every day recording and mixing—specializing in indie rock and pop.

My band has been working with Mark for a few years now. He’s very receptive and a great producer to bounce ideas off of! If you have more lo-fi recordings where you like the performance but they need some polishing, Mark is super fast at editing in Pro Tools to give you the sound you want. The quality of mix you get is better than most, and above all he’s a pleasure to work with.
I took a chance giving Mark one of my songs to mix and when I got the mix back I was BLOWN AWAY!!! The drums were huge, the tones were pristine, and he made my voice sound PHENOMENAL... any revisions I had he was quick to accommodate which was awesome. Very nice guy! Great taste in effecting sound! I will definitely be working with him again. Thanks, Mark!
Mark's the one, guys.
He's receptive to feedback and timely with his revisions; he's a great engineer, but most importantly, if you're (like me) precious about what you've written, he'll tune in to the vibe of the song, and become the limo driver for all your creative ideas.
I plan on working with Mark again in the very near future, as I evidently can't get enough of music, or the Mark that makes it happen.
I won't go into too much detail, as I left an (unverified) review already previously. But rest assured that I absolutely love working with Mark! He's extremely talented, patient, friendly, fast and efficient, and most importantly has a great ear and does a wonderful job mixing. I can't wait to continue working with Mark in the future and couldn't recommend his services enough!
Mark was such a pleasure to work with! He truly puts his heart and soul into his work, and I think he brought a lot of life to my songs. Would LOVE to work with him again.
Loved working with Mark. He's really professional and has a lot of very good producer ideas, too. I'll definitely work with him again.
ive worked with Mark for 3 years . We have done about 12 songs together. He is very easy to work with and very accommodating. He is very reliable on communication which is a big thing of mine. His ear, patience, and understanding of music make him great! And he is cool! What else is needed??
Mark is the man! He always knows how to make clients feel at ease and comfortable no matter what. It also doesn't hurt that his mixes are super exciting! Mark's professionalism shines through in his willingness to get the right results every time, and he always does so in a highly efficient manner. Highly recommended!
I've worked with Mark on a few tracks to date, with several more lined up for the future. He has performed mixing services for my band from recordings I did myself. I'll be the first to admit my recordings aren't the most superb of quality, but with his wonderful talents he has really breathed life into them. I truly couldn't ask for better results!
And aside from his great technical skills, he has been a joy to work with. Extremely timely, super understanding and patient, and very honest and friendly. I can't recommend his services enough! I look forward to working with him in the future!
I love working with Mark. I've hired him many times to play Bass in the studio and on stage, we've collaborated on productions together, and I've consulted him for advice in my own productions.
Mark brings an open working environment to everything does. Always excited to listen to what you're trying to accomplish and help you take it to the next level.
In addition to being musically talented, he also brings a technical proficiency to his recording processes that is arguably unmatched by anyone I know personally. Hire Mark for your next production!
Interview with Mark Bullock
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Try to make your song/production as satisfying and fun to listen to as you possibly can before any plugins or processing! If the energy and feel is there then, you're golden. This is can be more or less applicable depending on your genre, but I think you know what I mean!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Peter Katis, Brad Wood, Jacquire King, Andy Wallace, T.W. Walsh, James Blake, Shawn Everett, Derek 'MixedByAli' Ali, Jon Congleton
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm mixing a couple of singles for a local indie band, mixing a couple of songs for a local hip hop artist (who I also tracked vocals for), and mixing one song for a friend in L.A.!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Indie Rock, Pop, Folk
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I'm always exploring many different methods!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is based out of a house in East Nashville, a short walk from my favorite coffee shop and deli! My studio is essentially a pretty well-treated mix room, with a vocal overdub setup to my right, and a couple of synthesizers and guitars to my left. My main monitors are a pair of PMC Result6's, supplemented by some Avantone MixCubes, and my favorite consumer Bluetooth speaker. This combination gives me a really good idea of how things sound out in the real world! One more fun feature is my control surface: an old (probably considered vintage) Mackie HUI that is built like tank still functions beautifully with Pro Tools.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Most of the work I do for clients is mixing, but sometimes I do some overdubs and get a little into co-producing territory.
