David Gray, Fantasy Studios engineer (Berkeley, Calif.)

Main Responsibilities: Work directly with artists, their staff and engineers to ensure satisfaction.

Previous Lives:

  • 2004-2007, full-time musician/performer
  • 2003, Curbside Records partner
  • 1997-2004, Rumsey Electric Co. inside sales

The most interesting part about co-founding an indie record label, Curbside Records, is…seeking out impressive new talent and being involved in their projects from beginning to end. Being indie and D.I.Y. with very little staff, you surprise yourself with how many different hats you can wear daily to get the job done.

The most interesting concert I've attended was…Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood at A.C. Boardwalk Hall (Atlantic City, N.J.).

Currently in my iPod: Little Big Town (love those four-part harmonies), Sugarland, Billy Joel, Desoto Jones Aurora.

When I'm not at the office, you can find me…at home working on new projects — my own music or D.I.Y.-style home improvements.
