“A half dozen years ago I said that Brian was one of the best up-and-coming producers in our business. Today, it’s safe to say he’s become one of the truly talented producer/mixers not only in Canada but anywhere!” says legendary music producer Bob Ezrin.
Based out of Rattlebox North Studios in Toronto, producer/mixer Brian Moncarz lives to record and mix top rock bands including Our Lady Peace, Circa Survive (Atlantic), which landed a Billboard Modern Rock/Alternative #1 hit, Neverending White Lights featuring Hot Hot Heat (MapleMusic), Bleeker Ridge (Universal), Moneen (Dine Alone/Vagrant), The Reason (Warner/Anthem), The Jimmy Bowskill Band (Ruf), Yukon Blonde (Dine Alone), Poor Young Things (Bumstead) and The Junction (Universal). Moncarz is most proud of his association with producers Bob Ezrin and David Bottrill. Through years of working side-by-side with both masters, Moncarz has honed his craft: making great records.
Brian started 2016 in fine fashion mixing a new single for Our Lady Peace entitled “The Fix”, producing and mixing Julian Taylor’s upcoming release (Aporia) and producing and mixing Secret Broadcast’s “Gimme Some Hope” single (eOne).
Recently, Moncarz worked with Stone Iris, a soulful, new-blues rock band out of Edmonton, Alberta made up of the Niven brothers – El and Garret – and Jeff Burwash; Time Giant, a rock and roll quartet from Toronto; Rob Moir (Underground Operations); Yukon Blonde (Dine Alone) and Poor Young Things (Bumstead) .
Previously, Moncarz has had 4 singles chart at Active Rock Radio and one Top Ten single at Alternative Radio in Canada including the most recent single from the Bleeker Ridge album Go Home.
Brian mixed the track “The Fix” that Our Lady Peace used in this recap video from their New Years Eve show in Moncton, New Brunswick.
