For this month’s Meet the Team, we head south to Music City to chat with Sr. Audio Enginer, Mark Lonsway. Mark is an amazing musician and has actually composed numerous tracks in our library. He’s also played with some of the top country artists and has appeared on the Today show, CBS Sunday Morning and Good Morning America! Check out Mark’s awesome tracks here!
What are your top 3 favorite Warner/Chappell Production Music tracks?
These change all the time for me, but here are some current favorites. I love the dark strings and restless feeling of “Wishin’ On a Billboard Sign” from 615 Platinum Series, plus Greg Barnhill’s vocal is just perfect! Since I’m a rocker at heart, I always listen for “authentic sounding” rock music as it’s hard to get right. “Silent War” from Non-Stop Producer Series, as well as the rest of the release, is just awesome! I would totally buy this. Since’ I’m located in Nashville, I have to have some country music represented. “Smoke and Mirrors” from 615 Platinum Series is one of my favorites; a little left of center for country, but in such a cool way.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I actually am one of the few people I know who can’t wait to get to work. I make a living being creative and working with the talented musicians to create music that gets heard all over the world. Honestly, what is NOT to love about that?!?
What is your favorite vacation spot?
For now, I’m going to say Cozumel, Mexico. Beautiful landscape, tons of beaches and amazing food!
What is your favorite album of all time? You can only choose one.
Def Leppard’s Pyromania has continued to be my favorite record since it came out. The production is nothing short of amazing, and as a sound engineer I can’t help but be sucked in by this album!
