Here is our team
Mike B – has been a recording engineer since the late 1980’s. Mike owns his own home studio for many years. He has honed his skills on analog gear which gives him a unique perspective on recording. Like everyone he has advanced into the digital era which makes him a well rounded engineer. He is equally comfortable with his skills in either environment or a hybrid such as his current studio, The Rice Street Circus Studio, which brings a warm comfortable environment face to face with state of the art recording.
His career, including his current long running stint as the house recording engineer for the iconic 1st Avenue Mainroom in Downtown Mpls has brought him to work with innumerable extraordinary artists from the local through the international scene. His work ethic, extensive experience live as well as in the studio, mixing and mastering recordings is evident in the ease and speed with which his work flows.
A musician for his entire life, he understands the needs of the customer and the need to keep the creativity flowing while keeping the budget under control.
