BIOGRAPHY / WHO'S JEFF?
I'm a mix engineer. Based in the Lewes area of Delaware where life is slow, traffic doesn't exist and is a short drive to the ocean. Small town America at its finest.
I mix all of my projects here in my private studio, where I combine the best of vintage and new gear in a true hybrid setup.
I've been fascinated by the sound of records since I was a kid. I played guitar in several bands from the age of 16 into my early twenties. I started recording bands by night in the early 90's (for little to no money just to cut my teeth) while working the worlds worst jobs by day.
I finally began feeding myself making records full-time back in 1995. I spent many years living out of a suitcase working 18-hour days in some of the finest recording studios from NYC to Los Angeles. I've engineered and mixed records for some really incredible producers who taught me a lot. I wouldn't trade that experience for anything. I believe it gave me the knowledge, skills, patience, and insight to fully understand what I do now.
Do you work with unsigned bands as well as the big ones?
Absolutely! I truly love my "job" and give every artist and song the same amount of obsessive attention to detail whether they're on a major label or self-funded.
Do you mix a certain genre of music?
Nope. My discography spans many genres, which keeps me on my toes.
Ok, so have I heard anything you've mixed on the radio?
Hell yeah and in many grocery stores!
