Richard Furch is at a sweet spot in his career as a mix engineer.

He has amassed credits on 6 Grammy winning albums out of 22 nominated albums, with one current nomination.

 

With 25+ million records sold including two diamond selling projects, 1 billion+ youtube views and over 250 album credits to his name he continues to craft profoundly emotional mixes with exceptional sonics and ecstatic clients for the likes of Frank Ocean, Tyrese, BJ The Chicago Kid, Leela James, India.Arie, TGT, Chrisette Michele, The Weeknd, Ledisi, K Michelle, Chaka Khan, The Isley Brothers, Patti LaBelle and many many more.

Starting out in New York, he was part of some of the seminal albums of the 2000’s such as Outkast’s “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below” and Usher’s “Confessions” and critical darlings such as Fountains Of Wayne’s “Stacy’s Mom”.

Moving coasts to Los Angeles saw him working with all-time giants of the music industry such as Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. He was then tapped by the legendary Prince as mixer and engineer for his latest Gold selling, chart topping “Lotusflower/MPLSound” album.

Growing up on SSL consoles and having learned from legendary mixers such as Michael Brauer, Chris Lord-Alge and Tchad Blake, Richard obtained an in-depth knowledge and appreciation of analog and digital mixing techniques, a stunning arsenal of vintage and modern gear and finally his own no holds barred mixHaus studios in LA.
