Eric Robinson - Producer/Engineer/Mixer/Musician
San Francisco born producer/engineer/mixer/multi-instrumentalist Eric Robinson's first job in the music business was given to him by legendary Grammy-winning producer Steve Lillywhite. Eric never anticipated that a short email to his hero would find him recording Phish and watching Lillywhite mix U2 at the age of 19. Following this unique experience, Eric returned to the west coast and landed a job at Royaltone Studios. After spending more than three years there, Eric left to go out on his own.
Eric is currently in the studio mixing Fate Under Fire's EP.
Eric mixed Sia's "Kill and Run" contribution to the The Great Gatsby soundtrack and Eric has produced/recorded and mixed a track for the current Twilight film- The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2 featuring Nikki Reed with Paul McDonald entitled "All I've Ever Needed"
Prior, he worked with producer Dan Wilson on the new Taylor Swift album called Red. Red has sold 1.2 million copies in its first week-the largest sales week for any album in a decade! He also tracked Richie Sambora for an upcoming release.
Previously, he worked with Dan Wilson on finishing his highly anticipated solo album. Eric produced, recorded and mixed the song "Maps" feat. Priscilla Ahn for Cary Brother's latest EP. Eric recorded, programmed and played several instruments on new artist Helene Immel's new material with Charlie Peacock (Civil Wars) producing.
In 2006, Eric struck up a working relationship with producer/songwriter Marshall Altman and the two became partners in Galt Line Studios. Together, they worked on over 40 releases in a variety of genres including pop, rock, country, folk, soul, alternative and metal. Some of the music that came from their union includes the hit single by Matt Nathanson "Come On Get Higher," Elliot Yamin's gold-selling, self-titled debut CD, William Fitzsimmon's critically-acclaimed The Sparrow and The Crow and Rosi Golan's indie masterpiece, The Drifter and The Gypsy.
After Altman moved to Nashville in 2010, Eric took over Galt Line Studios as his facility and continues making records on his own with artists such as Brooke Fraser, Aqualung, Milk Carton Kids and Natasha Bedingfield. Eric is a unique hybrid who is equally adept at producing, co-writing, mixing, recording, programming and playing several instruments. Eric has an incredible wealth of experience working with producers like John Alagia, Ryan Tedder, Charlie Peacock, Marshall Altman, Matt Hales (Aqualung) and Dan Wilson, to playing on sessions for Tom Morello, Leona Lewis and Matt Wertz and touring with such artists as Sara Bareilles, Jessie Baylin and Cary Brothers.
Eric works out of his private studio in North Hollywood where he has a full tracking and mixing space capable of recording up to six musicians live. The studio comes fully-equipped with an incredible collection of drums, pianos, guitars, keyboards, microphones, outboard gear, software and plug-ins as well as a skylight in every room. Together, Eric and his studio provide a comprehensive and comfortable experience for any artist to build their songs from pre-production to the final mix.
Eric produced, recorded and mixed the new single by Justin Young feat. Colbie Caillat, "Puzzle Pieces." Eric also co-wrote several songs on Justin's forthcoming album and played a majority of the instruments. Eric produced, mixed and played on the new Cary Brother's song "Maps" with guest vocals from Priscilla Ahn.
Eric just finished material for upcoming albums by P!nk and Romeo Testo with Dan Wilson producing.
