My brother, the genius

My younger brother Chris has won three Grammy awards in his career as a recording engineer and producer. Two of those are for Bob Dylan records: “Love and Theft,” and Modern Times.

He contributed some remastered tracks to The Bootleg Series, Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs Rare and Unreleased 1989-2006, the release of which prompted the usual spate of Dylan career retrospective articles, some of which include interviews with Chris. One is from Uncut, a British magazine that ran a series about everyone  – musicians, engineers, and producers – who worked on the songs in the compilation.

He was also featured in EQ magazine in an article that focused on the more technical aspects of recording Dylan. The photo above is from that article, even though the Dylan sessions didn’t take place at Electric Lady.

He’s come a long way from interning at a studio that specialized in hair metal and hip-hop recordings. I claim a small amount of responsibility in pointing him in that direction, but that’s a story for a different post.
