MIKE FERRETTI

www.mikeferretti.com
CHIEF ENGINEER

Two time GRAMMY® nominated Chief Engineer Mike Ferretti’s ability to communicate with artists and translate a unique sonic vision has lead him to work with artists such as Sevendust, Thank You Scientist, Call Me No One, Zakk Wylde, Kevin Martin of Candlebox, , Bernie Williams, Danny Aiello, Max Weinberg (of the E Street Band), Regina Carter, Kenny Aronoff, Shawn Pelton, Lee Sklar, T-Bone Wolk, and Bob Babbitt.

Mike spent the first two years of his career sitting next to GRAMMY® award winning Producer/Engineer/Mixer Jason Corsaro. Mike earned the opportunity to work alongside P/E/M’s like Ron Nevison, Ron Saint Germain, Joe Ferla, Bill Laswell, Ben Elliot, Commissioner Gordon, and Earl Cohen.

Mike earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music with a concentration in Sound Engineering from William Paterson University. He attended on a classical track, playing the French Horn as his primary instrument. Being a classically trained musician is an integral part of Mike’s ability to communicate with the artist.

Working with highly regarded P/E/M’s and studio musicians has given Mike a diverse skill set allowing him to not only to capture great sounds, but also to recognize what goes into a truly brilliant performance.
