Joe Carrell is a Nashville based Producer and Recording engineer who has worked on 11 Grammy nominated albums and a string of number one records. Being a great fan of many musical genres, he considers himself very fortunate to be hired consistently across a wide range of music. “My  monthly schedules are so crazy diverse that I often find myself producing a pop artist while mixing everything from rock, country, jazz, gospel, bluegrass, etc. Then I’ll top of the month with several days of recording Nashville’s studio aces on rhythm dates with an orchestral recording day or two thrown in.  It’s pretty crazy but I love it that way!”
