About the Author

Mixerman has received multiple Gold and Platinum awards for his work as a mixer, recordist, and producer. He's made records of note with The Pharcyde (Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde), Ben Harper (Fight For Your Mind, Will to Live, Burn to Shine), Tone Loc, Spearhead, Amy Grant, Lifehouse, Barenaked Ladies, Hilary Duff, Foreigner, and Australian phenom Pete Murray (and many others). Mixerman gained notoriety as an author from his first work, The Daily Adventures of Mixerman, a satire of a Major Label recording session from the early aughts that delighted and surprised well over 150,000 readers. In 2008, Hal Leonard picked up his Adventures, and since 2010 he has written a number of books on the recording arts, including his most popular work to date, Zen & the Art of MIXING 2021. After 25 years in Los Angeles, Mixerman now mixes and produces records from his room in Asheville, NC, where he also writes and releases books under his own imprint, Mixerman Publishes.

Reviews

"By its fourth week, the diary was getting 25,000 hits a day and drawing attention from every stripe of the music business, as well as other bloggers, Internet junkies, and insiders. It was a phenomenon . . . The final chapter is here, too, for new readers, as well as the more than 140,000 Web readers who may have lost a night's sleep here or there, wondering what became of their all-too-human, less-than-gifted cast of characters."

"I have never laughed so hard at any book in my life! It is such a good book that I am reading it now for the second time."

"The story has a feeling of life. A sense of reality that is all too uncommon in the world of music. It gives you a view of the real day to day pleasure and pain involved in the life of an Audio Engineer or Producer. It pulls you along at its pace, sometimes a fast shuffle, other times a slow waltz as you watch a train wreck taking place, one frame at a time."

"This is a very entertaining book."

"Absolutely the best book I've ever read, music wise. Funny, smart, well written."
