IS A RECORD
Independent record producer & multi-instrumentalist Matty Amendola is a uniquely determined artist on the New York & national music scene. As a performing musician for nearly 20 years, he's recorded on countless albums and has shared all kinds of stages, from late-night NYC jams with Adam Levine (Maroon 5) to massive corporate events for Nike & IBM, prestigious hometown venues like Radio City Music Hall with Ty Taylor (Vintage Trouble) and across the airwaves on MTV's TRL with The Classic Futures. In 2008, he started music incubator 825 Records, Inc. and has used it as a vehicle to produce and develop content for a wide-ranging roster of independent artists, Fortune 500 companies, and many other notable brands.
As a songwriter, Amendola has landed worldwide broadcast placements with original music in commercials for MetLife (2013 NFL Superbowl & World Baseball Classic) and hundreds of song placements with other 825 Records' artists, playlists in retail stores, and original scores. Matty has also periodically released solo material, beginning with his first release in 2007, where he budded a brotherly partnership with Grammy Award Winning audio engineer and mentor Butch Jones (Rolling Stones, Talking Heads).
Matty's sound is creative, lively, saturated, and filled with dynamic surprise as an engineer and mixer. His vintage nods are familiar but driven by a modern urban punch. On either side of the glass, Matty's hybrid workflow and personal collection of vintage instruments and microphones have allowed him to wear multiple caps when working closely with a solo artist or left to his own devices.
Penned a "Great Gretsch Educator" by the renowned brand he also endorses, Matty's holistic approach to engineering and mixing has led to teaching clinics that span the coast, including MixCon, The Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp, and Music Career Mastermind. His experience creating industry-lauded educational tutorials on engineering and production is vast, having worked with Sonicscoop.com, Universal Audio, Plugin Alliance, Telefunken, Soundtoys, and more.
