When it comes to studio work, Robi has done it all and worked with a who’s who in the music industry. Whether he is first engineer, assistant engineer, or producing, we get into the nitty-gritty of gear, recording technics, and why he has dedicated his entire life to his profession. From working with Daniel Lanois, to artists such as Big Sugar, Neil Young, The Stones and U2, there is no shortage of tales to be told. But it all comes down to the work for him and giving those artists exactly what they want. Born of Indian and Norwegian parents and raised in both, Fargo, North Dakota, USA, and Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, he feels blessed to have had so many different experiences while growing up. Flipping back and forth between recording and live work at The Mint in LA, Robi loves to change it up. This one is jammed packed.

Sean is a faith driven individual still working on his inability to truly connect the way he’d like, with those closest to him. We wonder aloud if being adopted may have had an affect on him in this way. Working on his 3rd marriage he reflects on what it means to be present for your partner and recognizing the areas he would like to work on. A singer and keyboard player, we chat about getting lost in his recording studio while creating and how crucial music has been to his life, and how he deals with it. An honest talk from start to finish.
This is an episode we have chosen to re-release. We decided to pull it down last year after we originally put it out because of a controversy surrounding this particular guest. He was involved in a car accident that caused the death of a woman not long after we recorded his interview. At the time we pulled it out of respect for all involved, but as you will hear in the introduction to the podcast, there was a push to get it back up online from a friend of the family of the woman, and Jeff himself. We still resisted, as we were not interested in gaining an audience in that way. However, after a great deal of thought we have decided to release it once again. If we are to be true to the essence of this podcast, life stories rarely come in black and white. It is the grey where we mostly live.
