Ian Sutton is a San Diego based Audio Engineer. A graduate of The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences, Ian has been helping bands and artists make music in San Diego since 2005. His philosophy is simple, “Stay true to the artist’s vision and intent… and have fun, we’re all here because we love making music!” His love of music started before he could walk, listening to his father play blues licks on his guitar in their living room. In elementary school he was introduced to the drums and instantly became hooked. He played the drums for many years and through his love of rhythym, developed a passion for electronic music. He began DJing in his early 20’s and became ever more concious of the connection between music and technology. He moved to Phoenix in 2003 to attend the recording program at CRAS.

A sharp, problem solving mind combined with a creative bug helped him to excell in the studio environment. Since then he’s worked on hundreds of projects and become the go-to engineer for many of San Diego’s local talents. His musical tastes are as diverse as his clientele, allowing him to serve the needs of clients from various genres. His professional yet creative demeanor, attention to detail and honed studio skills have landed him numerous sessions at some of Southern California’s top studios, including Studio West, Signature Sound, and Track Star Studios. In addition, he is a Certified Pro in Apple’s Logic and Avid Pro Tools.
