The Loud in Cleveland Podcast with Sound Engineer Jim Stewart


Today, the guys from Loud in Cleveland take a moment to peer beyond the soundboard and chat with engineer Jim Stewart, whose portfolio spans the worlds of folk, indie, hip-hop and pop music.

From hosts Mike and Drew:

His impressive portfolio is filled with some of the biggest names in the local scene, including our past guests Shawn & Shelby, Ottawa, Ohio Sky, and By Light We Loom, plus artists like Nights, Mojo Flo, Midnight Passenger, Lauren Lanzaretta, and Ray Flanagan & The Authorities.

When Jim showed up we jumped right in and the conversation never stopped. Honestly, we could have gone for another hour after the tape stopped. Now, this episode is a little technical, but that’s exactly the job of the engineer. But we do get a great inside look into the part of record-making process that we haven’t seen yet from our guests. Jim also enlightened us to what influences him as far as how he captures a sound and the way he shapes it for the final track.
