For years I have been practicing the craft of engineering and music production. Starting from a Tascam 4-track and progressing to world class studios. Focused on unique sounds and what great music has to offer the artist and the listener. Recently I have been working with Ron Nevison, producer of Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, The Who, etc.
Born and raised in Portland, OR, Matt is a freelance audio engineer that has always had a passion for music. Playing in bands since the age of 12, his curiosity in recording grew after listening to artists like Radiohead, Bjork and Nine Inch Nails and wondered how they created such unique and exciting sounds.
After completing both analog and digital recording programs, he began to record all types of music from rock to reggae, hip-hop to hardcore. With over 12 years of engineering experience, he has worked with many well established bands, in addition to artists just starting out. Always taking the time to help each project reach their full potential. Matt believes that working with an experienced engineer is the key to working quickly and creatively.
Adding to his audio toolkit, Matt has been a significant part of the Banana Stand Media team. Helping to document Portlands ever growing and evolving music identity. He has done it all, from remote recording, FOH, engineering, mixing, and mastering.
Presently he not only regularly works with legendary producer Ron Nevison (The Who, Led Zeppelin, Heart, etc.) but offers full production from his home studio (Ivy League Recording), and several other studios to fit each artists vibe and needs. Matt also keeps active playing in local bands, The Hague and Maita.
