Colorado’s Recording Studio Dynamic Duo
Recording + Mix Engineer | Brad Smalling
As owner, audio engineer, builder, and brainchild of Evergroove Recording Studio near Denver, Colorado, Brad has what you might say is a vested interest in the studio. After spending three years studying at the prestigious University of North Texas College of Music, Brad decided he did not want to live out his career as a session musician. He began years of audio engineering self-study while saving funds, learning computers inside and out, and honing his customer service and project management skills as a network engineer and administrator. After a corporate merger and subsequent layoff, Brad dug his heels in and spent three years sweating, studying, and building Evergroove Studio in Evergreen (west of Denver), Colorado while doing independent recording projects, interning at Immersive Studios, and performing with a local band.
With nearly 20 years experience as a guitarist and singer, Brad knows exactly what musicians are looking for in a recording facility. As a Recording Engineer he is creative and not dogmatic about his approach to recording. Every record is different and should be treated with individuality. The same can be said for his approach as a Mix Engineer. Each song is different and should not be treated with a “cookie cutter” mentality. His personal experience on both sides of the glass has formulated his personal mission to create a fun, relaxing, great-sounding, and affordable professional recording experience for all.
Brad is available for work at Evergroove Studio or as a Recording or Mix Engineer at your own facility be that a studio in your hometown or even your basement.
