In Conversation with David Bottrill, Grammy Award Winning Producer
It’s undeniable that the merits of diversity lay at the heart of David Bottrills’ vast discography. With artists like Peter Gabriel, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Muse, Metric, IAMX, David Sylvian, Silverchair, Staind and Rush, David’s work spans genres and generations, lending to a sound that is both familiar and progressive. He’s cultivated the aggressive hard-rock palette of bands like Stone Sour, Godsmack, and Coheed and Cambria, while maintaining a connection to other ends of the spectrum with artists like King Crimson and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. With three Grammy Awards millions of copies sold worldwide, David has produced and mixed career-defining albums that have established paradigms and redefined genres.
After this in conversation session, we will fire up a panel of top colleagues to discuss today’s digitally-driven world, the ever evolving and expanding role of a producer, the benefits of a digitally connected planet, and today’s feverishly debated topic: can the professional studio environment help shape an artists’ sound?
