Tyler Bird is an audio engineer currently living and working in Kennewick, WA.

Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Tyler spent most of his time pursuing his passion for music.  As a teenager, he started playing drums and joined a band, which remained together for six years.  It was with this band that Tyler had his first experiences with a recording studio and instantly fell in love.   

Tyler attended Middle Tennessee State University, and he was admitted to one of the most competitive Recording Industry programs in the nation. Tyler excelled in the full spectrum of courses offered at MTSU, taking additional electives in order to gain knowledge and experience in the recording process. In addition to the required curriculum, Tyler began recording artists out of his home studio in 2004. Tyler graduated in December 2008 and holds a Bachelors of Science in Recording Industry with a concentration in Production/Technology.      

    

Interning on Music Row in Nashville, TN, Tyler got to experience major label sessions first-hand and learn from some of the best professionals in the industry.  Tyler held internships working for Byron Gallimore (Producer, Mix Engineer) at his private studio and James Stroud (Producer) at LOUD studios.  Since the majority of studios in Nashville use Pro-Tools as their primary DAW, Tyler is skilled and experienced at tracking/editing/mixing with the software.  He has extensive experience with some of the best gear in the industry including consoles from:  SSL, Sony, Digidesign, Euphonix, and Studer.  In addition to digital sessions, Tyler has experience recording with Analog Tape. He is also a member of the Audio Engineering Society and participates actively attending conferences and events to further his knowledge of the latest recording trends.

 

 

Tyler moved to Connecticut in January 2009 to take the position as Chief Engineer at Number 7 Records and Sound in Trumbull.  Number 7 Records moved and downsized their studio in late 2010 to focus primarily on music for film/TV.  Tyler worked the next three years out of several studios including his own, "The FIRE Below" in New Haven, CT.
