Tucker Martine: The Producer/Recordist in his studio CC#261

Oregon Music News

I am with Tucker Martine, one of the world’s best producers and recording engineers. I could read you the list of the people he’s worked with but it would take the rest of the podcast, and that’s only slightly exaggerating.Here are just a few, Roseanne Cash, My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, Sufjan Stevens, Don Henley, the Avett Brothers. I could go on but you get the picture.One of his most beloved collaborators is Bill Frisell who comes to Portland to record right here at Flora Recordings and Playback.He’s also a musician and like everyone else right now doing everything he can to keep afloat until we get back to something that resembles normal.Bill Frisell is one of my favorite musicians and so excuse me if I talk too much about him. It’s my podcast.Here’s Tucker Martine.

94. Tucker Martine

Music Makers and Soul Shakers with Steve Dawson

Engineer and producer Tucker Martine joins me on the show this week. Tucker has been operating out of a couple of incarnations of his own studio, Flora Recording and Playback, for quite a few years now. He has recorded and/or produced acclaimed records for a diverse cast of characters like The Decemberists, Bill Frisell, My Morning Jacket, Wayne Horvitz, Neko Case, Laura Veirs and many more. Tucker has an amazing sense of depth and tone that comes through in his recordings, which is a reflection of how much he cares for the art of recording itself. I wanted to have Tucker on the show to talk about some of his experiences making those records, as well as building his studio and some of the joys and trials of that process. We had a great time digging deep, and I hope you enjoy it! We’re coming to you bi-weekly now during the virus, and welcome your calls to talk about what’s keeping you busy and creative during this time.

Episode 20: Tucker Martine

Tape Op Podcast

In 2002 we interviewed Tucker Martine, then a resident of Seattle and making some cool records with people like Bill Frisell and Danny Barnes. A few years later he moved down to Portland, Oregon, working initially out of my Jackpot! Recording Studio, but soon moving his home studio Flora Recording And Playback into commercial digs. He's worked with The Decemberists, REM, My Morning Jacket, Neko Case, Mudhoney, Grandaddy, Mavis Staples, K.D. Lang, She and Him, and also his songwriting wife Laura Veirs. Tucker was preparing to move into a new studio building so I thought we should check in and see what was up with him. Enjoy!Sponsored by Neumann Berlinhttps://en-de.neumann.com

The Future of What
