Grammy award winning Record Producer & Sound Engineer Rafa Sardina speaks with Starchamber.TV host Peter Doell.
Rafa Sardina’s love for music began at an early age - both learning to play the guitar and attending recording sessions in his native Spain.
And now, many years later, Rafa Sardina is a 12-time Grammy-winning, producer/mixer/engineer who easily connects with his artists and delivers a studio vibe that's performance-friendly.
"My studio philosophy is simple - I'm there to make sure the artist is having fun. I see my work much like a photographer's, as transparent as possible when required but always providing the creative edge to affect the song and performance in a positive way. To achieve that goal, I like to create a comfortable and inspiring environment using the best acoustics and tools available."
