Grammy-Nominated Engineer Shares Expertise

Alumnus and Grammy-nominated engineer/producer Jeff Balding (’82) shared his expertise with Belmont’s AES (Audio Engineering Society) student chapter recently by staging a Mix Session in the campus’ Robert E. Mulloy Studio A. Balding mixed “This Time Last Year,” a track provided by CEMB senior student Garrett Miller, who recently completed an internship and landed an assistant engineer position at Starstruck Studio. Balding has worked with a wide gamut of artists spanning all genres of music: Shania Twain, Michael Bolton, Barbara Streisand, Celine Dion, Faith Hill, Amy Grant, LeAnn Rimes, Rascal Flatts, Brooks & Dunn and Reba McEntire to name a few. He also continues to serve on the CEMB Advisory Board and has found time to become a CEMB adjunct this semester, teaching a class in the business of becoming a successful recording engineer.
