“On The Twentieth Century” and “Fun Home” cast albums took the #1 and 2 spots on the Billboard Cast Albums chart this week. Super stoked!
The cast album recording of “On The Town”, which I edited and mixed, opened at #1 on the billboard cast albums chart! This cast album mix was unusual for me because I didn’t record it, so it was fun taking someone else’s tracks and mixing them. Charles A. Martinez did a great job capturing the magic, and I’m thrilled with how this one turned out. Check it out!
Björk’s “Vulnicura” opened at #15 on the Billboard 200 this week, and I’m proud to have been a part of this project. Engineering Björk’s songs and watching them evolve over the last three years has been a fantastic experience. If you haven’t heard yet, this is one of Björk’s more personal albums, and reviews have been very positive so far! Do check this album out, and if you’re in NYC, check out Björk’s upcoming retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in March.

“Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill”, an album starring Audra McDonald which I recently co-produced and engineered, debuted at #1 on FOUR billboard charts this week! The album placed #1 in Cast Albums, #1 in Jazz, #1 in Traditional Jazz and #1 in Heatseekers! “Lady Day” is a live recording of the show, captured at the Circle In The Square theater. Check out Broadwayworld.com for more details, and check out a recent review in the New York Times. Also, check out this recent story on Entertainment Weekly, which has a few clips from the album.
Here’s some clips from the recently released cast album of Violet. Fun stuff on this one: Banjos, dobros, fiddles and whatnot… And some great gospel singing! Had a blast making this one.
