MIKE CASHIN

Senior Engineer

Mike Cashin

Having worked as an engineer for the over 15 years in the countries biggest and best studios, means that Mike has had the rare opportunity to learn his trade from the engineering and production giants of the industry. He’s taken the best techniques from each of his mentors, and combined them to create his own approach to making records.

After graduating from OIART in London, ON. Mike landed the enviable position of 2nd Engineer at Bryan Adam’s Warehouse Studio in Vancouver. After almost a decade there he went on to help build and manage CREW Studios in North Vancouver. It was built from the ground up and he contributed to every detail, including studio layout and design, equipment selection, acoustics, engineering and daily operations. Working in such environments has lent itself to creativity, efficiency, candor, and above all…making records enjoyable while getting results. This is what Mike brings to each and every session.

It also lends itself to working across many different genres. From Mötley Crüe to Michael Bublé, Swollen Members to Strapping Young Lad, and Elvis Costello to The Roots, Mike has worked with artists in every corner of the business. His easygoing demeanor and top professionalism mean that every artist he works with, regardless if they’re a chart topper, or recording their first song, get treated with the same respect.

Mike is currently making records based out of various Vancouver recording studios. He is also working with Applied Electronics as their Technical Lead, doing audio, video and control integrations. As their audio specialist in the Western Region he works with various audio DSP’s, programming and installation in control rooms, council chambers, boardrooms and theatres.

Music is a tough lifestyle to make a living in. The fact that Mike continues to succeed shows his dedication to the artists and projects he takes on, at every level.
