The Ohio University School of Media Arts & Studies welcomes Ross Hogarth for an exclusive Skype Q&A session on Monday, October 24. Hogarth is a multi-platinum and GRAMMY winning engineer and producer with scores of legendary artists including Roger Waters, Van Halen, REM, Flogging Molly, the Black Crowes, Keb’ Mo’, Motley Crue, Ziggy Marley, and John Mellancamp, just to name a few. Hogarth is a regular on “Pensado’s Place” and in 2014 won the “Tracking Engineer” of the year award at the first Pensado Awards.
“Ross Hogarth is an incredible producer and engineer, one who carries a deep sense of musicality and songcraft in conjunction with profound technical expertise in the studio,” said MPRI MDIA lecturer Josh Antonuccio. “We are privileged to welcome him for a conversation with Ohio University students.”
Growing up in New York City during the influential punk scene of the 70’s, Ross began his musical career as a multi-instrumentalist guitarist/singer/songwriter, playing in the wild downtown New York clubs. He eventually connected with both the San Francisco Bay New Wave music scene and Southern Cal’s rock scene. What followed was a natural evolution that took him from production road gigs with Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat and Fleetwood Mac, into the realm of studio production, where he has become the respected world-class producer, mixer, and recording engineer he is today.
Hogarth has had a hand in numerous seminal releases from some of the biggest artists in the U.S., including breakthrough albums by REM, John Mellancamp, Jewel, John Fogerty, and Motley Crue. In 2007, Ross won the Grammy for Best Reggae Record of the Year, for his production, mix and engineering work on Ziggy Marley’s Love Is My Religion. 2012 brought the release of A Different Kind of Truth, the first record by Van Halen with David Lee Roth since 1984 and their first studio album in 16 years with Hogarth co-producing, engineering, and mixing the album.
The live Q&A session will take place in Schoonover 346 on Monday 10/24 at 7PM. For more information, email Josh Antonuccio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
