Brian's musical career started at a very young age. After starting piano lessons at the age of 4, he got a drum set for Christmas in 7th grade and immediately started a punk band, which then spurred his interest in live sound and recording. In 2004, he and his dad formed PDP Productions to organize concerts and provide live sound in the Western Massachusetts area. After receiving his Bachelor’s in Sound Recording Technology from UMass Lowell in 2009, he interned at Zing Studios in the summer of 2009 and officially launched PDP Recording in his basement studio that fall.
Brian's credits over his seven years at PDP Recording include King Parrot, Barishi, Lich King, Condition Critical, Hannah Hoffman, Epicenter, and Vacant Eyes, as well as in-game remixes for the Rock Band Network for artists such as Between the Buried and Me, A Day to Remember, Periphery, and The Faceless. He also works for Klondike Sound and PDP Productions in the live audio realm, and currently plays drums for Lich King, Godeater, and Sparkeater.
Anthony's passion for recording began in parallel with his passion for music and drumming when he was 10-11 years old. Ever since then his path through recording technology was guided by a constant compulsion to merge art and creativity with theory and engineering with whatever means were available to him, concurrently fostering a strong DIY mindset. He carried that drive with him throughout his grade-school years which enabled him to enroll in Berklee College of Music where he graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Production and Engineering in 2015. His experience in the MP&E Program allowed him to merge his DIY ethos with a strong foundation in how a professional studio is run and how to achieve the best tones possible.
Much of his experience has been engineering and mixing for the multitude of bands he has been in over the years, most notably his current band Graviton where he produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered the Fundamental Violence EP. He has also done drum editing for The Offering, vocal production for the forthcoming Aversed EP, and mixed the eponymous Black Tomb debut release.
