This week’s guest is veteran recording engineer, mixer, and golf enthusiast Jesse String. Jesse began his recording career at the legendary Henson studios, and eventually went freelance where he would stack up credits with artists such as The Jonas Brothers, Leonard Cohen, The Band Perry, Ziggy Marley, and Prince. We have a great chat about the freelance rollercoaster, never cracking under pressure, skipping assistant engineer, and the power of trying to be better everyday.
In this episode, we'll dig in on...

- Working with Prince
- Golf and your career
