X Ambassadors

In 2015, my life took an exciting turn when I received a phone call from X Ambassadors that would forever change the course of my career. Their undeniable musical brilliance drew me in, filling me with a sense of purpose and setting me on a path of remarkable experiences.

Mixing for X Ambassadors was an exhilarating journey into unexplored sonic territories, where innovation and boldness intertwined. The opportunity to work with a band that exuded such raw intensity was both thrilling and humbling. I had been captivated by their hits like "Renegades" and "Unsteady," and their entire repertoire showcased their boundless creativity and unwavering dedication to their craft. Standing beside these musical visionaries entrusted with shaping their sonic landscape was a true privilege.

Little did I know that fate had woven a tapestry of connections that would lead me to this momentous opportunity. Through the fortuitous alignment of paths, the manager of Ra Ra Riot, who also managed X Ambassadors, guided me to this incredible experience. It was a testament to the power of a vibrant network and the unexpected paths it can unveil within the music industry.

From the first show, as I took my place at the mixing console, I witnessed the electrifying spark of X Ambassadors' stage presence. Their performances were transcendent, enveloping the audience in a captivating embrace. The collective heartbeat of their devoted fans echoed in perfect harmony with their pulsating rhythm, a testament to their music's profound impact on listeners of all ages.

Having the opportunity to accompany X Ambassadors on their transformative journey, and witnessing their growth and acclaim, fills me with immeasurable gratitude. The stages we shared, from intimate venues to grand arenas, became sacred ground where we etched memories that will last a lifetime. Together, we crafted sonic landscapes that reverberated with triumph and camaraderie, embodying a sense of family united by a shared purpose—to ignite the hearts of audiences around the world.

As the curtains rise on the next chapter of our collective symphony, I feel a swelling anticipation within my heart. The journey with X Ambassadors has only just begun, and I stand ready, with unwavering dedication and an insatiable thirst for sonic exploration, to harness the transformative power of their music. Together, we will continue pushing the boundaries of possibility with every beat and melody, illuminating the world one electrifying performance at a time. It is a dream deeply woven into the fabric of my existence, and I eagerly await the infinite wonders that lie ahead.
