Since I've taken a month break to prepare for season two of the podcast I've reissued this episode with a brand new introduction. I really enjoyed my conversation with Bill and I thought there was a lot of great insight in his story...
Today’s guest is multi-platinum awarded producer, mixer, and musician Bill Appleberry. Bill has worked on Republic Records' and NBC's hit TV show The Voice for the last decade. He has produced and mixed the studio recorded versions of every song performed by every artist for every season of the show. Outside of his work with The Voice, Bill's credits as an engineer, producer, and player include names like Stone Temple Pilots, The Wallflowers, Puddle of Mudd, Joe Walsh, Hole, and 311. We have a great chat about his start, playing drums in the Marines, getting a hit early in his career, being prepared, and how your career is defined by what you do between gigs.
