Producer / Recording Engineer / Mixer
(BOB SEGER, STEVE MILLER BAND, CAKE, MELISSA ETHERIDGE, RICHARD MARX, TINA TURNER) (“A MIGHTY WIND” / “BEST IN SHOW” / “WAITING FOR GUFFMAN”)
In episode 5, the ever insightful David Cole discusses his time as recording engineer at Capitol Studios, making demos with Tina Turner, the path to his first gold record, as well as his mega-hit making experiences with Bob Seger, Steve Miller, and Richard Marx!
David’s was the very first recorded episode of ATS, and as he participated on faith alone, kudos to him for taking a chance! DC told me he enjoys mixing for “up and comers that have something to prove”. If that’s you, maybe there’s an opportunity in waiting, so hit him up at DavidColeMusic.com.
Also, If you haven’t yet, I recommend you check out ATS: Introduction to Season Zero. It’s short and helps frame up our plans for the podcast.
