Owner/engineer/producer Matt Washburn has been involved with music in some way, shape, or form since 1978. It could easily be said that he was destined for a career in music: he discovered drums, guitar, and piano at age 10, held several studio internship positions from the age of 16, studied audio production & music composition in college, operated his first ‘real’ studio, at age 24, opened LedBelly Sound Studio in 1996.

The milestones go on and on. His passion for sound quality is the driving force behind each project. With an extensive track record, Matt has effectively become a dominant figure in the audio world. “The skill of producing, tracking, and mixing sound is one that many claim, few possess and even less master.

Anyone can own Pro Tools, but it takes years of experience to develop how and what you hear. Since 1983, hearing back for the first time what I had just recorded, I’ve been obsessed with capturing sound as purely, accurately, and creatively as possible.”
