MEET THE TEAM
Kent has over 23 years of experience as a recording, mixing and mastering engineer and has been
an engineer with Crystal Clear Sound since 1997. He learned the tried and true, classic analog
methods of recording, mic’ing and mixing, starting in the days when 2” analog tape was the
standard recording medium. But he is also a master with Pro Tools and working in the digital
world, and when it comes to drum sounds, there is no one better.
Kent has been playing trombone and guitar professionally for 35 years. He graduated with a
Bachelor of Music, in Jazz Studies / Performance from the College of Music at the University of North
Texas and in addition to his work in the studio has spent time as a touring musician in a variety of
situations, including playing in the orchestra for a touring Broadway show to multpile international
tours to Europe, Australia and New Zealand with Wo Fat, the band the both he and business
partner, Michael Walter, play in together. In the studio he has worked with a wide range of artists
and on many different projects - including Hank Thompson, Reverend Horton Heat, Forever the
Sickest Kids, Green River Ordinance and co-engineered and mixed the Grammy nominated 2001
Brave Combo album, "Kick Ass Polkas." He also contributed engineering for parts of songs by Julian
Lennon, Charlie Puth and Meghan Trainor.
The rich musical background that Kent brings to his approach to engineering gives him a skill set
that many engineers lack. He can speak the language of musicans and understand charts, scores
and terminology, which makes sessions flow smoothly and easily. This also means he brings that
musician’s ear to the sonic aspects of recording and mixing, focusing on music over technical things,
giving to give you the most musical product.
