I have nearly a decade of experience in music production and engineering, and have worked with signed and established industry artists. In general, I have worked with 100s of musicians in many genres over the years as well as done studio session work.
My name is Austin and I have worked with over 100 rappers, singer-songwriters, and bands, in a capacity involving beat production, recording, writing, general production, session instrumentation, vocal tuning, mixing, and mastering. Within the last 5 years, I interned at Robert Lang Studios which is where bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam recorded their biggest albums. I do session work as well as general audio engineering. I have spent the last decade working in music and learning instruments like the guitar, bass, and drums at an early age. I began working with Digital Audio Workstations at age 12, gaining knowledge in ProTools, Logic, FL Studio, and Ableton Live.

Interview with Austin Taylor
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

Q: How would you describe your style?

A: Any industry legend that I grew up listening to that I respect. Especially ones that got me into music and audio to begin with.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Stop focusing on small things like tuning every drum, buying expensive synths, and what DAW is the "best", and start focusing on how to make a song that people want to listen to. Learn basic music theory and study from the best in music, no matter the genre. Musical influence pops up eventually when you least expect it, and is never a bad thing.
