Watch Ryan Hewitt Mix The Lumineers
As one of the staples of the indie-folk genre, The Lumineers have seen the heights of the charts several times. In April of 2016, the band released the hit song Angela, with a meticulously crafted arrangement and sonic landscape.
In this puremix.net exclusive, Grammy award-winning engineer and mixer, Ryan Hewitt, goes inside the mix and deconstructs the song piece by piece, going further than simple mixing techniques to explain the effect that a great arrangement can have to build excitement and take the listener on a journey, from a simple guitar and vocal song to a full-blown orchestral climax.
During this 2 hour video, Ryan explains how he:
Achieved the iconic vocal sound that establishes a connection between the singer and the audience
Created bass guitar tones that translate to small speakers
Added forward-driving momentum to unique percussion tracks
Creates contrast and scene changes as the song moves from section to section, all building up to an emotional finish
This is your chance to sit next to Ryan Hewitt, and take a behind the scenes look at the creation of an indie folk smash hit.
