Avi Brown is a record producer, multi-instrumentalist and composer based in Portland, Oregon. Avi has had the good fortune of making music with artists such as Stephen Marley, Bill Kreutzmann, Diantoni Parks, MoZella and many more.
From banjos to bangers, Avi‘s focus is always on what best serves the composition at hand. Whether it’s providing a singer-songwriter with a full band and arrangements, adding strings or other elements to an indie rock song, creating a bed of experimental sonic texture for a psychedelic dream pop lullaby, or simply capturing beautiful sounds and a strong performance, Avi’s twenty-plus year career makes collaborating with him inspiring and exhilarating.
Having studied, performed and produced Rock, Pop, Jazz, Hip Hop, Country, Reggae and more, Avi draws upon many different influences and inspirations in his production and composition approach. His flexibility and wide stylistic vocabulary often help the recording artists he works with hone their sound while refining the nuances that make their music truly unique.
As a songwriter and recording artist himself, Avi is a firm believer in the power of experimentation during pre-production to ensure that studio time is spent as productively as possible. Avi can also recommend or handle the hiring of session musicians for solo artists or bands in need of additional instrumentation.
Avi studied arranging and music production at Berklee College of Music. He joined B-Side Studios as a Resident Producer/Engineer in June, 2017.
