Martin hails from the great state of Texas and has been playing music since the age of 10, starting on piano, then migrating to a real instrument: drums. He spent two years at the University of Houston, studying music performance and music education, before attending Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, Martin discovered the world of manipulating and recording sound and never looked back. After graduating with a dual major in Music Production & Engineering and Music Synthesis, Martin moved to Los Angeles and began working at the world class Henson Recording Studios. With six years as a Henson employee and thousands of studio hours later, he then worked as an engineer to producer/mixer Rich Costey from 2013 to 2018, and has now established himself as an independent recording and mixing engineer.
Martin has had the privilege to work with artists and bands such as Of Monsters And Men, Death Cab for Cutie, POWERS, At The Drive-In, Biffy Clyro, Chaos Chaos, Cathedrals, Kimbra, Young The Giant, Rick and Morty, Muse, and many more.
In 2016 Martin was nominated for a Grammy for his engineering work on Death Cab for Cutie's "Kintsugi", which was nominated for Best Rock Album, as well as being a part of the mixing team for Muse's "Drones", which ended up winning in the same category.
Martin enjoys helpings artists reach the full potential of their music. Whether he is working with Grammy-winning artists, or those just getting out of the gate, his experience across engineering, mixing and creative additional production give him a robust set of skills to help your project to the next level.
