MEET THE INSTRUCTOR – SHAWN DEALEY

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR
SHAWN DEALEY

Equally comfortable mixing in an arena or a recording studio, Shawn Dealey has spent the last 20 years developing his craft as an in-demand recording engineer, mixer, and producer. Working with artists such as Counting Crows, Goo Goo Dolls, Jared James Nichols, KEN mode, Bootsy Collins, We Came as Romans, Stu Hamm, and countless others, Shawn’s passionate approach to the art of recording, along with his hunger for new techniques, keeps him at the top of his game and can help you excel at yours.

MEET JD Simo

The Chicago-born Nashvillian JD Simo is like a one-man crusade dedicated to keeping music real, raw, and honest. He infuses the situation of each musical moment with influences from decades of playing with the likes of Jack White, Tommy Emmanuel, Luther Dickinson, Dave Cobb, Blackberry Smoke, and Grateful Dead founding member Phil Lesh. Simo creates a musical landscape from hill country trance blues, psychedelic streams, fuzzy rock, and old-school blues that’s as raw, funky, and real as life.
