Whether it's because of his work on bass or behind the board, you have probably heard many works of Justin Meldal-Johnsen. He worked with Beck for many many years. He has worked with Nine Inch Nails. He has produced albums for bands such as Jimmy Eat World, Paramore, and M83... he has done it all, seen it all, and I am fortunate enough to have had him discuss it all in this episode.

JMJ is one of the entry way musicians for me as a bassist into gear-nerdom... We talk gear, pedals, writing, and how all of that history goes into his work as a producer. Whether you're a seasoned musician, a dabbler, a gear dork, or just a fan of music, this conversation is for you!

You can of course follow him on instagram and such at @justinmeldaljohnsen and check out his website for more
