Matt Brown is a producer, drummer and one of the best damn drum techs to walk the planet. He’s worked with artists such as Shinedown, Mutemath, and Whitechapel.
Matt Brown returns to the podcast to chat about his work with Jon Anderson, revisions in the studio, and what to expect from the new release of his Ultimate Drum Production course. UDP is the most comprehensive course ever created on recording drums, and in this episode we share some of the juiciest bits of the course.
