RSR175 - Michael Estok - Writing and Recording for Pop and Independent Artists in Nashville and Ohio

RSR175 - Michael Estok - Writing and Recording for Pop and Independent Artists in Nashville and Ohio

My guest today is Michael Estok, a producer, engineer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter born in Youngstown, OH. Starting with school at the Recording Workshop, and then Full Sail University. In 2004, Michael moved to Nashville, TN for an internship at Sony/ATV Tree studios, and worked under the watch of music industry legend, Pat Mcmakin. During the 14 years he spent in Nashville, Michael worked as an independent producer out of his home studio, and eventually returned to Sony/ATV when his client, Nashville based pop artist, Kynlie, was signed. Estok continued to work with Sony, producing for Sony’s Artist development team under the watch of Troy Tomlinson, Ed Williams, and Abbey Adams. He also co-wrote and produced countless songs for artists such as Wesley Orbison, Lionel Cartwright, Tiffany Johnson, and Jon Raven. In 2017, Michael and his family decided to leave Nashville, and return to Canfield in Northeast Ohio, where he built Court Street Recording inside the National Historic Charles Ruggles House (circa 1846). Court Street has worked with local musicians including the Vindys, and Anthony LaMarca (from The War On Drugs, The Building), all while continuing to work long distance with pop artist, Aaron B. Thompson (from Vancouver Island), and various Nashville artists, producers, and songwriters. He is excited to bring his experience back to Ohio, where he hopes to elevate the local music scene and help local independent artists make great recordings. Thanks to our sponsors!
