John Frye

Profile:
American sound recording and mixing engineer, born in Framingham, Massachusetts.
With his engineer brother Brian Frye (who works regularly with Jermaine Dupri and has made records with Mariah Carey, Destiny's Child and Alicia Keys); the two eventually gravitated to the West Coast, where they slowly got drawn into both the playing and business sides of the industry. Growing up during the era of mega-production that was the 1970s, and experimenting with his own ear over time, John became especially attentive to the mechanics of sound. And when his brother began to do live sound for San Francisco area bands like the Tubes, his curiosity soon made him aware of a art school in Atlanta that also offered a music industry curriculum.
He has worked with Outkast, Lil Jon, Jay Z, R. Kelly, T.I., Pink, Jamie Foxx, Ceelo Green, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Babyface, Toni Braxton, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy, Goodie Mob, TLC, Gwen Stephani, David Banner, Kelis, among others.
