Bill Schnee is an internationally renowned producer, engineer and mix master. He has used his early beginnings as a musician and songwriter to help communicate with artists and musicians in the studio. In a highly decorated career that spans four decades, Bill has engineered and hit gold or platinum payoffs with an extremely wide variety of artists that include Three Dog Night, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Rod Stewart, Chicago, Steely Dan, Natalie Cole, The Jacksons, Marvin Gaye, Dire Straits, Ringo (with all the Beatles), Barry Manilow, Carly Simon, Michael Bolton, George Benson, The Pointer Sisters, Bette Midler, Amy Grant and Whitney Houston, including Whitney’s mega-single "I Will Always Love You”. Switching to his producer role, Schnee also mined precious metal on multiple projects with Huey Lewis and the News, Boz Scaggs, Pablo Cruise, Joe Sample, and the internationally renowned direct-to-disc recording with Thelma Houston. Bill has personally been Grammy-nominated 11 times for Best Engineered Recording and has won twice for Aja and Gaucho, both from Steely Dan. Those two multi-platinum releases add to a harvest of hits that includes over 85 gold records, 50 platinum projects and 50 top twenty singles. Bill’s latest endeavor is Bravura Records … a live music label where artists of all genres are recorded and mixed live in his studio to very high resolution digital (24/192) through his extensive proprietary equipment. He hopes to show the synergy of musicians and singers performing together without studio wizardry offers something very special for the listener and delivers true musical performance. Bravura will offer these high resolution recordings on Blu-Ray Disc and other hi res digital formats, as well as CD. In a world where mp3 has unfortunately become the musical standard, Bill is aiming to bring true high fidelity to the audiophile community and hopefully expand the state of the art for everyone.
