James Kananen

Record Producer / Audio Engineer

I am an audio engineer and record producer from Cleveland, Ohio. More than just the person that hits the spacebar or pushes the faders and makes headphone changes, but a helpful resource to achieving your goals. I am an audio engineer whose primary objective is to record a wide variety of content. Through the use of creative recording techniques, I craft a stunning reproduction faithful to the artist’s intent. “It’s important to not only listen to the music but also to listen to the people who are making it.” I have always had a background in music. When I was young, I played piano and various brass instruments. I began recording and producing demos and recordings for friends and family, and after attending college, attended the conservatory of Recording Arts, then moved to Cleveland where I began actively beginning my professional career as an audio engineer. In 2007, recording bands out of my bedroom and my apartment. In 2009, we formed an LLC for our studio and began looking for a space. I continued to work part-time as a live sound engineer at the Grog Shop until 2014 when I decided to concentrate on studio engineering full time. I plan to continue to record and document the artistic world for others to enjoy. As a craftsman of many arts, I possess just the right combination of skills to help make your project a success.
