Hello, my name is Brandon Eggleston. I’m a freelance recording engineer/producer based in Portland, OR with extensive major label and independent experience. My working goals are simple; as an engineer I break down the barriers between your ideas and the equipment to turn dreams into sounds, I eliminate technical hurdles during the creative process, and I push to exceed sonic expectations. As a producer I help develop music to its full potential in both composition and performance, simultaneously finding ways to make your record special and timeless. I am comfortable working in both analog and digital mediums in any studio or space. No matter what my role, I come with a fresh perspective and I tend to put my heart into every record I am part of. While recording and mixing is my primary focus, I also tour as a Front of House engineer and tour manager. I’m lucky to do what I do and love my job!

I’ve had the honor of working with Brandon on my last three records. He is not only superbly inventive and intuitive, he has the spark of creativity that proves the precious difference between a song sounding just great and a song sounding truly original. He is also a kind person who devotes himself to the work at hand, makes it his own and deserves a large share of credit in the finished product. I hope to work with him more in the coming years. (Brandon) is one of those rare types who is professional while still being laid back and fun to work with.
Brandon is a crucially important engineer at Tiny Telephone. He’s also been my tour manager and FOH for many years. I would seriously consider turning down a tour if Brandon couldn’t be a part of it. I know a lot of other bands that feel the same way.
Brandon Eggleston is hands-down the single most capable and competent person I have ever known in my life. He is never out of his depth, he is never overmatched, and—most extraordinarily—he never runs out of patience.
Brandon is intuitive, patient and open-minded. He has a remarkably attentive ear for unique, yet natural sounds and can improvise tactfully no matter how diverse or limited a studio situation may be. Very fun dude too!
I have been working on records with Brandon for four years and I am still impressed with his professionalism and dedication. Brandon has mixed, engineered, and produced different records that I have been involved with and has always gone above and beyond what was expected. He brings lots of good ideas to the table, but also listens to what you want as an artist. He continues to work with some of my favorite bands and always makes amazing sounding records.
Brandon has a natural affinity for understanding the artistic vision and pushing it forward. He always “gets” the music he’s working on, yet is unafraid to take aggressive chances. And, he’s a really handsome guy.
