Country music veteran Chris Stapleton swept the 2015 Country Music Awards on November 4, winning CMA New Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for his solo debut Traveller. Pete Lyman, co-owner and Principal Mastering Engineer at Infrasonic Mastering in Los Angeles, mastered the album for CD, digital and vinyl release. Traveller was produced by Stapleton and Dave Cobb, and mixed by Vance Powell.
Infrasonic states that Stapleton’s sweep of the CMA’s marks the first project mastered at Infrasonic to take home a CMA Award.
The LP adds to Lyman’s critically acclaimed discography in both country and Americana.

Simpson was also recognized at the 2014 Americana Honors & Awards, alongside Infrasonic Mastering client Jason Isbell.
