Steve Hodge, Engineer

Steve Hodge's career as a multi-platinum recording engineer, mixer and producer has spanned over 35 years, and has garnered four Grammy nominations and a Grammy win in 2001.

He began his music career at age 18, working on the construction crew of MGM Records' studios in Los Angeles, California. He began engineering, assisting in sessions with Sammy Davis Jr., Steve and Edie, and working with arrangers and composers such as Nelson Riddle and Don Costa. He then engineered at several Los Angeles studios during the early 70's before moving to Bogalusa, Louisiana for a few years, where he recorded several New Orleans greats, such as Gatemouth Brown, The Wild Magnolias, and Professor Longhair. Back in Los Angeles, he worked as an independent engineer at Westlake Audio, Record Plant and other studios, with clients such as Boston and Little Feat. Soon he was mixing for Dick Griffey's Solar Records' stable of groups: The Whispers, Lakeside, and Shalamar, and Dynasty, with producer Leon Sylvers.

In 1984, he met Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, who came to Los Angeles from Minneapolis to mix their first production, after leaving their group, The Time. His work with Solar Records attracted their attention. After mixing The SOS Band project for Jimmy and Terry, Steve was invited to Minneapolis to mix Janet Jackson's soon-to-be hit album, Control. Jimmy and Terry then invited him to move to Minneapolis permanently and be part of their team, which he did 1986. He served as Chief Engineer of Flyte Tyme Studios for 17 years. He consulted in designing the Flyte Tyme Studios facility in Edina, Minnesota. Flyte Tyme Productions became one of the biggest hit-making teams of all time, with countless Billboard Top Ten hits with clients including: Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, TLC, Boyz II Men, New Edition, Rod Stewart, Sting & the list goes on and on.

Now producing on his own, with his company, Steve Hodge Productions, he is working with clients like Soul Aslyum, and taking on new artists as well. The Soul Asylum album, entitled The Silver Lining, is due to be released July 11, 2006 on Sony's Legacy label.
