My guest today is Steve Chadie who began his career as an intern at Willie Nelson's Pedernales recording studio in 1995, quickly working his way up to Assistant Engineer for Larry Greenhill. Upon Greenhill’s departure, he took on the position of Head Engineer, capitalizing on the learning opportunities presented while working alongside many producers including John Porter, Paul Leary and a recurring 14-year stint with legendary producer Andy Johns.

Steve has been awarded multiple gold and platinum records and several Grammy nominations spanning a wide range of artists including Sublime, Los Lonely Boys, the Supersuckers and Merle Haggard. Whether recording major label artists or local bands, Steve approaches the task with the same enthusiasm and attention to detail and artist comfort as he was taught to do from the start. He has a deep respect for the art and is always willing to lend a helping hand, gear or advice to upcoming young engineers that he collaborates with. He is of the opinion that this is an apprentice-based guild and knowledge should be passed down to these engineers to keep the craft alive.
