Man, the pressure was on mixing this podcast. I mean, Jay is a professional. Me? I’m not! If you’re a rock fan, chances are you’ve got some of Jay’s work in your collection. Stone Sour, Steel Panther, Anthrax, Avatar and Fozzy are just some of the bands he’s produced and/or mixed throughout the years. He told me about his upbringing in Southern Ontario and schooling, to his journey to Southern California, where he’s at today. He tells me about the projects he’s working on now, idols in the business, some of the methods he using in his craft and working with analog tape as well as Pro-Tools. One of the things I really wanted him to answer was the question about the next big stadium band. I actually messaged him that question to give him some time to think about it. He tells me his keys to success and a bunch more.

Jay tells me some great stories and was very interesting to talk to. I hope he approves of the mix on this interview. LOL
