As a studio brat, I had the privilege to see the making of albums from an early age thanks to my Dad, Session / Opry A-team guitarist Jimmy Capps. As a guitar player myself, I always loved music, but I also was fascinated with buttons, knobs and lights, the smell of musty microphones and the scent of analog tape.
On the other side of the glass I started as an intern at Sony/Tree Music publishing then a stint at Al Jolson’s Masterlink Studios (now Zak Brown’s Southern Ground) and then finally a staff position at The Sound Shop Studios where I assisted the best engineers, picking out what they did that I liked and made my own style of recording. First sessions being publishing demos, Ronnie McDowell, The Kentucky Headhunters. Becoming a staple on Don Cook, Scott Hendricks and Johnny Slate projects I then moved into the first engineer chair.
33 years later, with dozens of gold / platinum albums, 4 Grammy Awards and 10 additional Grammy nominations to my credit, I continue blending the best of Digital and Analog Recording and Mixing Formats.
