DaveSardy

Bringing an entire lounge room to a recording studio might seem extreme - but it’s one example of the extent to which Dave Sardy will go to ensure creative flow in his recording sessions. Combating the “Dentist office” vibe of many recording spaces, the Brooklyn born and raised super-producer is equally likely to be carting in a SSL mixing desk alongside a truckload of thrift shop furniture, carpets and cultural detritus.

Producing hugely successful groups including The Dandy Warhols, Oasis and Wolfmother has given Sardy an understanding of the sonic saturation that a best-selling record achieves. His job is to make sure the same emotion translates wherever the song is played - whether that be in the back-seat of a taxi or the front row of a nightclub.

More recently he has scored films including Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengence and contributed pieces to The Green Hornet and Eat, Prey, LoveThe visual and audible crossover is a common theme in his creative practice - whether using visual images to set the mood or using sound to tell a story.

From early days experimenting with bands in demo studios to his current role as a LA based producer of hugely influential acts, Sardy has brought a particularly individual approach to getting the best out of his performers and equipment. And if his records have a nostalgic feeling - it’s a tip of the hat more than a homage. He’s carved out his own sonic  niche, and from his studio in the Californian hills he’s still looking upwards.
