Message Board - Brad Blackwood

Brad Blackwood‘s musical career started in high school recording several different rock n’ roll bands. Even as he attended college he was drawn to music, selling hifi equipment at local shops. The more he learned about the reproduction of music, the more his desire to work in the recording industry grew. He moved to Memphis and began honing his skills as an engineer at Ardent Studios. After spending several years learning the ins and outs of recording and mixing, Brad turned his focus on resurrecting Ardent Mastering, a division which had closed years before. His success was immediate as he cultivated working relationships with producing and engineering greats such as Jim Dickinson, Skidd Mills, and Jim Gaines. “It was a great learning experience, being thrown into sessions with such amazing producers and engineers. These guys had worked with everyone in the book so I had to get it right the first time”.

In 2003, Brad decided it was time to expand the service he offered his clients and the result is Euphonic Masters. His client base followed, allowing him to continue to work with a wide variety of artists including Maroon 5, Saving Abel, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Black Eyed Peas, Flyleaf, Sick Puppies, Thursday, the North Mississippi Allstars, Sister Hazel, and many more.

Over the course of his career, Brad has had the opportunity to work on a number of acclaimed projects:
