It’s true, about 7 years ago I drove Nick Jonas in my car.
I was working in Toronto as a studio assistant and the Jo Bros were there working on their 2nd album. I had to drive Nick to his hotel at the end of the night.

That’s what happened for me in 2007, watching John Fields engineer and produce a record that went on to go PLATINUM.
I shot this quick video to tell you more about what I learned from that experience.
Check it out and see if you can pick up some golden nuggets to apply to your style as a producer / mixer.
