NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – NOVEMBER 2012: Gifted producer and engineer Julian King brings an exceedingly rare blend of talent, temperament, and training to all of his projects. He entered the Nashville scene with a music degree, but quickly gravitated to the technical side of music production under the tutelage of engineering greats Chuck Ainlay, Steve Marcantonio, John Guess, and Lynn Peterzell.

World-class chops paired with an easy-going personality have earned King jobs with a who's who-list of country legends and rising stars, including George Jones, George Strait, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Tim McGraw, Vince Gill, Charlie Daniels, Hank Williams Jr., Kenny Rogers, Clint Black, Martina McBride, Randy Travis, Brooks & Dunn, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins, Alabama, The Judds, Chris Young, Lauren Alaina, Casey James, Sugarland, Kellie Pickler, and Tyler Farr, among many others. His engineering on Faith Hill's crossover sensation Breatheearned King a Grammy, and in total, his work has sold over one hundred million units.

Shortly after moving to exclusively in-the-box mixing, King found Metric Halo's ChannelStrip plug-in, and he has since used it on almost every single channel of each and every mix he's done. Recently, he picked up Metric Halo's Production Bundle of plug-ins and is discovering that a full-course of Metric Halo's "musical" algorithms and intuitive, results-oriented interfaces will be a benefit to his mixes and workflow going forward."I'm very fortunate to be a busy guy, but I don't work 24/7 – I've managed to still maintain a life outside of the studio!" King asserted. Although he admits to working the occasional eighty-hour week, he also frequently enjoys taking time off to play golf or to go on outings with his wife and children. "I have duplicate rigs at home and at Loud Recording," King said. "I'm able to work flexibly, but perhaps more importantly, I'm able to work quickly. I only use tools that are musical and intuitive."
