Anyone who has worked in a Nevada recording studio with Darren Sher is immediately struck by his dedication, commitment to his craft and by his attention to detail doing what it takes to get it “just right.” Darren has all the skills you would look for in a great music producer- phenomenal talent, a raw passion for music, a great ear, amazing technical skill, and an unflappable work ethic. At a very young age, Darren took to the piano. By the age of 10 he came to be regarded as a protégé at his craft. This potential was soon recognized, encouraged and nurtured by some of the biggest names in the recording industry. Jonathan Cain of “Journey,” Gordon Bahari (Stevie Wonder - Songs In The Key of Life), and Matt Martone (3 Doors Down) are but a few who played significant roles as mentors or in co-creative projects as Darren made the transition from musician to super producer. Today Darren has come to be regarded as the “go to guy” in Las Vegas for musicians, singers and songwriters who have arrived at the point where they are ready to make pro-quality studio recordings. Darren has been instrumental in the development of many new and emerging artists as well as those with numerous credits for charting singles and albums worldwide. Recently Darren had songs that charted on Billboard writing and producing with artists Rosalee and Snoop Dogg. He has also engineered produced and/or written songs for nationally televised programs, film and TV sound tracks and for live production shows. Probably his proudest accomplishment is the growing list of artists who, once having worked with Darren at his Omnitone Nevada music studio, would not consider recording with anyone else at the controls! Darren is a key member of our music production team. If you're looking for the best music producer in the best recording studio in Las Vegas, look no further! Darren brings all of this experience, expertise and a heartfelt passion to every project he is associated with.

Grammy-award winning mastering engineer Brad Blackwood started his recording career in high school, working with several of his friends’ rock n’ roll bands. Even as he attended college he was drawn to music, selling hifi equipment at local shops. The more he learned about the reproduction of music, the more his desire to work in the recording industry grew. He moved to Memphis and began honing his skills as an engineer at Ardent Studios. After spending several years learning the ins and outs of recording and mixing, Brad turned his focus on resurrecting Ardent Mastering, a division which had closed years before. His success was immediate as he cultivated working relationships with producing and engineering greats such as Jim Dickinson, Skidd Mills, and Jim Gaines. “It was a great learning experience, being thrown into sessions with such amazing producers and engineers. These guys had worked with everyone in the book so I had to get it right the first time.” In 2003, Brad decided it was time to expand the service he offered his clients and the result is Euphonic Masters. His client base followed, allowing him to continue to work with a wide variety of artists including Maroon 5, Three Days Grace, Korn, Alison Krauss & Union Station, the Black Eyed Peas, Jane’s Addiction, Sick Puppies, Saving Abel, the North Mississippi Allstars, Sister Hazel, Snoop Dogg and many more. Over the course of his career, Brad has had the opportunity to work on a number of acclaimed projects, and eventually became the first mastering engineer ever awarded a Grammy for Best Engineered Album, Non Classical (Alison Krauss & Union Station – Paper Airplane).
