Nashville producer, Mitch Dane, has certainly made an impression in the music world. His desire to grow and to learn is constant, making every project he touches relevant and refreshing. In his 20 years of production/engineering experience, Mitch has managed to cross the lines into every genre. Though most of his work can be heard on Rock, Roots/Rock and Singer/Songwriter records, Mitch continues to work fearlessly in other styles like Hip-Hop, Industrial and even Bluegrass/Americana. In his own words: “I like to collect the best aspects of every genre of music and bring them together in hybrid productions.” This personal philosophy has worked well, considering Mitch’s fingerprints mark over 100 records, four of which are Grammy nominees.
Perhaps one of Mitch’s greatest talents lies in his ability to work and communicate well. His subtle confidence and passion for creativity puts the artist at ease while he brings out the best in them and in their music. Mitch holds firmly to his conviction for excellence in recording, focusing on the content and arrangement as the foundation of a great song. He believes the production is secondary, but has the ability to make (and will make) a great song even greater. His insightful sense of what is classically modern, memorable, and tastefully provocative, challenges the artist to come out of their comfort zone and opens the doors to creativity.
With Mitch, recording is always an experience, both personally and professionally. And something that every artist should experience.
Mitch's studio is Sputnik Sound in Nashville, TN. Co-founded in early 2000 with the rock band, Jars of Clay, the space/sound odyssey has developed into a fully equipped facility for any type of recording project. It consists of a main tracking room, overdub room, control room, kitchen, lounge, and mixing/edit suite.
