Los Angeles, CA (October 10, 2013)—Despite seeing substantial changes in the recording industry throughout his career, Grammy and TEC award-winning producer/ engineer Ed Cherney continues to produce project after project with a high level of creativity, artistry, focus, professionalism and joy.
Best known for his work with some of the industry’s top artists, including Iggy Pop, Bonnie Raitt, Sting, Eric Clapton and more, Cherney has been working on numerous projects, including:
• Producing/engineering new tracks with Australian rock band Wolfmother.
• Work with Lenny Kravitz on music for Lee Daniels’ The Butler
• Producing, engineering and mixing the main title theme for Disney’s Planes, “Nothing Can Stop Me Now,” with artist/writer Mark Holman
• Producing the post-production audio and mixing for Love 4 Levon, a DVD/broadcast/CD project featuring My Morning Jacket, Roger Waters, Joe Walsh, Lucinda Williams, among a star-studded cast honoring Levon Helm.
• Mixing for Iggy and The Stooges’ latest album, Ready To Die
• Recording and mixing Robben Ford’s latest project, Bringing It Back Home
• Mixing Eric Burdon’s latest project, ‘Til Your River Runs Dry
• Work on the soundtrack for the upcoming film Bolden with Wynton Marsalis and Director Dan Pritzker
• Cherney has also been co-producing (with Sandy Turano) new artist Athena Perez in Chicago.
• He is also currently mixing tracks for Nick Cannon with Randy Jackson and mixing tracks for Jonny Lang.
Cherney was also particularly close with the late, legendary producer Phil Ramone, and worked with Ramone on his last projects before his untimely passing earlier this year. These projects include Where It All Began from Glee star Matthew Morrison, as well as the album Confidencias from Alejandro Fernandez, the first single from which, “Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti,” featuring Christina Aguilera, is currently onthe Latin charts.
“I have had so many wonderful opportunities in my career,” says Cherney. “I have had the privilege of working with great artists that I truly love. When the downturn in the music business happened, and everything changed overnight, like many of my peers I questioned if it was really worth it anymore. What happened instead was the reaffirmation that I was lucky enough to be doing something that I was born to do, and what I have done is re-dedicate myself to serving the artist, and most importantly serving the music. To be able to turn a musical idea using cold and hard technology into raw emotion and to get people to feel something is the greatest thing in my life. Whatever is happening on the business end pales when put next to the artistry and timelessness of great music. If we can make truly great music, the rest will take care of itself.”
