History: Triple Grammy nominated Brad Gilderman is best known
for his versatility in mixing multi-platinum records in pop, rock,
R&B as well as Soundtracks. Whether Brad is working with contemporary
chart toppers like Britney Spears, Samantha Mooba, Ronan Keaton
or Mya to legendary crooners like Tom Jones, Babyface and Eric Clapton,
he focuses on each artist in achieving an individualized sound.
Brad started playing drums and doing live sound before he got an
entry level position at one of LA's top local studios named Davlen.
He later moved to the legendary Cherokee studios where he got his
first engineering break recording a 30 piece orchestra for Neil
Diamond. "Having mentors like Shelly Yakus, Al Schmitt and
Jimmy Iovine helped me learn from the best," says Gilderman.
Then one day
Tom Petty called Brad to invite him to record his record. Brad,
then 22, left his family vacation in Hawaii for greener pastures
in Hollywood. "One call lead to the another and I became a
much in demand mixer for some of the world's top producers like
Babyface, LA Reid and Rodney Jerkins. Together we made some memorable
records by Destiny Child and Tony Braxton, Madonna, Boys to Men,
to name a few," adds Brad.
Most recently Brad has opened his private recording facility in
Burbank, The Little Big Room. "It nicely accommodates the work
that comes my way. I like recording in a place that has all the
tools that I like and there's no pressure. If I need to live the
mix up one afternoon and continue the next day, I can do that without
bending somebody's budget out of shape," says Gilderman. The
studio offers an SSL G Plus with ProTools HD system, great outboard
and a comfortable atmosphere.
