Engineer Eric Sarafin has had great success with artists like The Pharcyde, Tone Loc, Ben Harper, Lifehouse, Barenaked Ladies, Amy Grant, and Foreigner, among many others.
He’s a great engineer/producer, and certainly deserves all the accolades that he’s received for that, but you might know him better for his writing under the name of Mixerman. His hilarious Daily Adventures of Mixerman book is a must read for anyone in the business, as are his Zen and the Art of Mixing, Zen and the Art of Producing and Zen and the Art of Recording books.
