I am happy to be welcoming acclaimed musician, audio engineer, and producer, Billy Anderson into the Sonic Garage this week!
A musician first and foremost, Billy got his start as an engineer because he wanted to record his own band’s music, not realizing until later on that he had a real knack for helping bands other than his own to create career defining albums, something which he has personally done on many occasions.
While Billy made quite a splash early on working with bands like the Melvins, Sleep, and Mr. Bungle, he has continued to break new ground in recent years working with Loss, Agalloch, Pallbearer, Acid King, and Witch Mountain, just to name a few of the many bands that Billy has had the pleasure of working with recently.
Through trial and error and immersing himself in as many challenging recording projects as possible, Billy has become a master at achieving the best results in the studio, sonically speaking, and also at inspiring all of the talented artists he works with to push themselves to their creative limits.
If one thing was made clear during my conversation with Billy it’s that having a positive, can-do attitude is a priceless trait to have, and starting with the environment in which you currently find yourself, and the tools you have at hand, great things can be achieved.
These days, Billy can be found most often mixing at “Everything Hz”, which is his home-based mixing studio located in beautiful Portland, Oregon. When not busily mixing from home, Billy can usually be found tracking at his new favorite studio in Portland, “The Hallowed Halls”. In fact, he’s there this week recording the band Eye of Nix from Seattle!
I hope you both enjoy and get inspired from listening to Billy’s interview this week, and thanks to everyone who has been listening to and spreading the word about the show, I am very grateful for you all!
