Russ Long has been producing and engineering a wide variety of music and film projects since the late 1980s. His credits include the hits “Kiss Me” and “There She Goes” by Sixpence None The Richer and albums by Wilco, Newsboys, Over the Rhine, Relient K, Dolly Parton, Tanya Tucker, and Jim Brickman. His film credits encompass the soundtracks to the Girl Interrupted, Here On Earth, Jonah, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days, The Second Chance, The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie and She’s All That motion pictures. Russ has done 5.1 mixes for Allison Moorer, David Crowder, and Mercy Me and is in demand as an engineer for live sound recordings, having multitracked live performances for Switchfoot, Chris Tomlin, and Nichole Nordeman. Russ’ studio — Nashville-based The Carport — opened in 1994 and has played a key role in the majority of these projects.
In addition to producing and engineering, Russ has also authored over 100 articles and equipment reviews here at Pro Audio Review, and elsewhere. He has also been involved in the development of a series of educational DVDs that currently includes Russ Long’s Guide to Nashville Recording and Shane Wilson’s Guide to Mixing.
