Kenan BlairBirmingham Recording Connection

Major: Audio Engineering

My name is Kenan Blair, i have been recording and learning on my own since i was 12 years old. At first it was just to make demos for my band and to fool around with guitar amps but it turned into learning how to make my demos and records sound like some of my favorite bands, one of my favorite mixes or guitar bassed albums come from bands like Dethklok, Meshuggah, The Black Daliah Murder, and many other artists in metal. As ive delved more into recording and mixing/producing for myself, i have found love in music that includes more epic compositions such as Cradle Of Filth, Dream Theatre, Devin Townsend and Children Of Bodom where it is all about the complimentary instruments that make the song sound better. Some of my favorite engineers/producers include people such as Bob Rock, Andy Sneep, Mark Lewis, and Joey Sturgis. I hope to someday work to have my craft at a skill level to where it would be somthing i would pay money for with my own music let alone having clients, i am my biggest critic especialy when it comes to finding details in new music.
