Biography

Marc is a Grammy nominated music producer and mixing engineer. He has been producing, mixing and managing creatives for over 16 years. His music credits include Fleetwood Mac, Jason Mraz, Colbie Caillat, Robert Duvall, Marc Broussard, Ozomotli, Reik and more. Starting out in 2000 at the age of 18, Marc landed his first internship at Chicago’s premier studio, Chicago Recording Company (CRC).

As a recent graduate of Ohio’s Recording Workshop, Marc was one of the youngest to ever start work at CRC. There he picked up the attention of the best veteran jingle engineers and producers in the business. After a few months of studying under these engineers, he moved up to an assistant position.

It was also at CRC that Marc met legendary post production engineer Tim Butler. Marc became a protégé under Tim and stayed connected to him until he passed away in 2008. Above engineering, Tim taught Marc about the advertising business: how to treat clients, how to engage in resourceful critical conversation, and how to steer a room.

In 2007, Marc had the opportunity to move to Los Angeles, where he worked under legendary producer/engineer Bill Schnee as his protégé. There, he had the pleasure to be on sessions with top artists such as Natalie Cole, Barry Manilow and Sergio Mendes. It was under Schnee’s focused discipline that he learned the true craft of critical listening, engineering, and production.

While in Los Angeles, Marc picked up a keen attention to style, design and what makes creatives tick. In 2009, opportunity knocked and brought Marc back to his hometown outside of Chicago where he became a partner at a recently opened recording studio. There he ran the successful “The Alley Recording Company.”

During his years at ARC, Marc tracked, mixed and produced over 300 projects. In 2010, he created and produced a 13-episode television series for PBS called “Live at the Alley,” which he also hosted, engineered and produced. It was successfully received and critically acclaimed.

In late 2014, after a heavy year of producing videos and mixing, Marc received notice that real-estate around the studio ARC had gotten very valuable and it was time for the landlords to sell to developers and demolish the studio to build condominiums. The Alley closed its doors in January, 2015, almost seven years to the day it opened.

Upon arriving back in Los Angeles in 2015, Marc started work with the film and music company Alcon Sleeping Giant with his old friend and mentor Ken Caillat. He became Ken’s personal engineer / sub producer and lead creative director at Alcon Sleeping Giant, working exclusively out of The Village Recorder. There he mixed music and trailers for films like Point Break, Bastards, No Manches Frida, The Expanse and Wild Horses.

Marc also mixed Fleetwood Mac’s Mirage Reissue, Colbie Caillat’s Malibu Sessions album and a handful of songs for Jason Mraz, Ozomatli, Tim Myers and Reik, whose song, “We Only Have Tonight” received the Latin Grammy Nomination for Best Contemporary Pop Vocal on their album Des/Amor. Outside of work, Marc enjoys spending as much time as he can on or by the ocean, and out with close friends trying new restaurants and great wine, his dog Oliver always by his side.

Product Reviews

  • Lindell Audio 354E

    After spending last weekend on an older 80s series tracking, I used a few 2254s. Back at mixing, the Lindell 254E did just what I wanted in terms of the original. It has been my main two-buss compressor for most genres for a while now. Now that the 354E was released I am beside myself. I have been waiting for a mulitband with this color to be made and here it is. The sound is extremely easy to dial in and isn't complicated or dangerous like other mulitband compressors can be. Lovely sounds.

  • Unfiltered Audio Instant Delay

    Just last night, I tried Unfiltered's Instant Delay and instantly fell in love with the Drive feature. It seemed to add just the right grit and dirt I needed for a dirty tape echo.

  • Having grown up in the industry on both an 'E' and a 'G' series, I was eager to give the new bx_console E a spin. After using a few other companies' emulations of the same console, I was incredibly happy and impressed with Brainworx and the attention to detail. The channel strip compressor finally has the proper 'snnnnaapp' I've been missing from the real console. On top of it all, the added features are fantastic. Having a mix knob is extremely handy. Another home run!
