Shawn Dealey
Producer / Engineer

After taking a music production class in high school, Shawn began engineering for local bands and opened his first studio in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, when he was 20 years old. He played drums, produced, and engineered his way to a string of professional touring tech jobs with a host of big-name artists such as Counting Crows, Goo Goo Dolls, Avril Lavigne, Santana, All-American Rejects, and Billy Talent. Now he works at Sweetwater Studios as a producer, engineer, and front-of-house mixer for several of Sweetwater’s venues, including the new Clyde Theatre.

Other clients Shawn has worked with include Beth Hart, Propagandhi, Jim Bryson, Doc Walker, James Maddock, Ken Mode, Oz Noy, the Weakerthans, Imaginary Cities, Chic Gamine, Del Barber, Julie Doiron (of Eric’s Trip), PBS, HD Net, Spock’s Beard, and many more. He’s brought an unstoppable passion for the creative process to each project, combined with quick and effective engineering that allows the artist to get to the sound they’re looking for without trial and error and an extensive knowledge of instruments and gear. When you’re chasing tone alongside Shawn, rest assured you’ll catch it.

Don’t even think of asking him to pick a favorite album — his tastes span the gamut from Motown to metal — but the one he’s most likely to play on repeat is The Dirty South by Drive-By Truckers.
