I am very pleased to welcome F. Reid Shippen onto the show this week!
Making his home in the legendary music city of Nashville, Tennessee, Reid has established himself as one of music’s preeminent and most talented mixers. Not everybody can be as successful as Reid has been across numerous musical genres, but he finds working with radically different kinds of music and artists to be quite exhilarating and he loves the challenge that each new project brings.
Reid’s enthusiasm and passion for his craft has led him to mix a myriad of platinum and gold records, a large multitude of charting singles and albums and if that’s not enough, he’s proud to have mixed 10 Grammy-winning projects to date as well!
As you might expect from someone of his caliber, Reid stays consistently busy mixing from his own personal SSL hybrid studio, uniquely named Robot Lemon, so this is where he spends a great majority of his working hours. As a father of two, Reid values the quality time he gets to spend with his family, but when he does have a lighter mix schedule, he loves to produce, co-produce and develop gifted new artists as well!
I found my conversation with Reid to be quite inspirational, so I really hope you enjoy Reid’s interview and the opportunity to get a glimpse inside the mind of a guy who is absolutely killing it right now!
Thanks everybody for listening!
