ED CHERNEY is an engineer, mixer and producer. He’s won Grammys and TEC Awards and just won his first Emmy. He owes success to the musical greats he’s sat behind over the years — giants like Quincy Jones and Bruce Swedien, Don Was and Phil Ramone — listening through their ears, learning how they make great music.

The Rolling Stones. Wynton Marsalis. Iggy Pop. Bette Midler. Eric Clapton. Wynonna. Buddy Guy. Jackson Browne. Lenny Kravitz. Ry Cooder. Keb’ Mo.
