My guest today is Biz Morris, a multi-platinum and Grammy Award-winning mixing engineer with credits like Lecrae, Tori Kelly, Kirk Franklin, PJ Morton, and Andy Mineo. For the last decade, Biz has represented independent Atlanta hip-hop label Reach Records as a Vice President and Head of Studio Operations.
Biz started recording when he was 14 years old with a small setup at his mom’s house, and incredibly, he was nominated for a Grammy for an album he engineered while he was still in school. Since then accolades have continued to flood in, including Grammy and Dove wins as well as gold and platinum albums.
Recently he also launched “GetMxd,” a cutting-edge company aimed at providing top-tier mixing and mastering services for independent artists at an affordable price.
During the interview we spoke about why Biz loves editing vocals, making the transition to only mixing, how engineers can overthink a mix, his opinions on mastering, how GetMXD came about, and much more.
I spoke with Biz from his studio in the Atlanta.
On the intro I’ll take a look at a new Senate bill to reform live ticketing, and Rode acquires Mackie.
