Gavin Lurssen is one of the top mastering engineers in Los Angeles. He recently mastered albums for T-Bone Burnett, Disney and Alex de Grassi. He is also involved with a podcast on Audeze headphones. As it turns out, Gavin is also an excellent acoustic guitarist following in the footsteps of Michael Hedges and many other Windham Hill artists.
Here's what Gavin has to say about his guitar mentors.
"Seeing Michael Hedges play his guitar the way he did on stage several times during my youth told me which path to select in life. Listening to the sound of his guitar on those recordings, particularly Aerial Boundaries, was the confirmation to me that I needed to work in the field of audio production. Having Steven Miller, who produced Aerial Boundaries, also work on my recordings here has been a dream come true beyond my wildest imagination."
The artists we've chosen to work have proven themselves to be excellent and dedicated in their art, though they might not be known in a pop stardom way. They are pop stars to us... and they are incredible humans.
