Dan Tobiason (lead engineer)
When he got a guitar and amp from his grandfather, Dan knew early that his hometown of Helena, MT might not be the place for his big ambitions. After training at the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences, Dan took a shot in NYC, working alongside Will Schillinger in 2003 at Pilot Records Studios before being recruited to Sony Music Studios. There, he climbed quickly, working with notables such as Jay-Z, NeYo, Beyoncé, Foo Fighters, Rihanna and Joss Stone, to name a few. By 2007, Dan left NY to take a much-needed year-long break from the whirlwind schedule of engineering for A-list artists and to further hone his skills. But, the itch to collaborate came back, prompting a return to NYC to work on-demand with an impressive roster of international chart-toppers at Jungle City and Daddy’s House. Dan is a proud dad to Zam and currently resides in the Bronx.
