Mike Bocchino (Chief Tech)
Mike Bocchino’s career in the recording industry began in his teenage years, working at Electric Lady Recording Studios, where he quickly rose amongst the ranks to become their chief tech engineer. After having serviced almost all of the top studios in New York City, Mike headed to South Bend, Indiana, where he earned a PhD in Philosophy from Notre Dame.
Mike is able to think about studio gear, construction, and electronics in the way that most artists think about emotion, lyrics, and soul… which is to say he can bend forms of steel and circuits to magically solve problems that otherwise seem like dead ends or broken equipment.
