"Matt is a wonderful producer/engineer/collaborator: he has great sense of how a session should operate (steady forward progress & humor), an eclectic but individual slant on how music can sound and the technical chops to back it all up."
- Chris Eckman (The Walkabouts, Glitterbeat Records)
I'm a record producer, engineer, mixer, and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, keyboards, lap and pedal steel). I love many kinds of music, but my style leans towards the organic, atmospheric, intimate and direct - everything from singer/songwriter to shoegaze, ambient to Americana, indie rock to roots, electronic to alt-country.
"I have worked with Matt on many projects. He is meticulous, intuitive, fun to work with, gets great sounds and just does all around excellent work. Great engineer and great producer."
- Wayne Horvitz (Zony Mash, John Zorn, Bill Frisell)
IN THE STUDIO
After my first studio experience with my band Trespassers William, I became obsessed with the the art of record making. I got my first job at Sonikwire Studios in southern California where I was the house engineer and studio manager.
After five years at Sonikwire I relocated to Seattle and worked there independently, meeting tons of amazing musicians and working in some truly great studios (Avast!, Electrokitty, Bear Creek, Crackle & Pop and more).
After ten years in Seattle, I moved to Hamburg, Germany, where I continue to make records and play in bands.
"Matt Brown is a talented and creative engineer, producer, and musician (not to mention an overall swell human being). I'm lucky to have gotten to make records with him!"
- Lindsay Fuller (Recording Artist, ATO records)
My own musical projects include the over 15 years with my band Trespassers William, releasing albums on Nettwerk and Bella Union and touring the US and Europe extensively. I've also played with Chris Staples, (Barsuk) St. Kilda, Shannon Stephens, (Asthmatic Kitty) The Soft Hills (Tapete), Brian Ledford & The Cadillac Desert and Altspeak. I also make ambient music under the name Disinterested and have started working in the world of scoring for film and TV (Eden, The Night Stalker).
"I can't recommend Matt enough. He's creative and knows his way around the technical aspects of the recording studio. On top of that he's super easy to work with and moves fast. Hire this man now."
- Terri Moeller (The Transmissionary Six, Terri Tarantula)
