Marc's Bio, Album Credits, Movie Sound Tracks and Radio

 

After working extensively as an engineer in his hometown of Boston, Marc DeSisto moved to Los Angeles in 1984. He got a position as staff engineer at Sound Castle Studio. From there, Marc moved to another staff position at the famed A&M Studio in Hollywood. Marc worked with and learned from a number of great producers and engineers including  Jimmy Iovine, Shelly Yakus, Danny Kortchmar, John Shanks,

Mike Shipley and Rick Knowels

 

During this time, he assisted on records for artists such as Pink Floyd (Momentary Lapse of Reason) and Tom Petty (Let Me Up), and engineered on seminal records such as U2’s “Rattle and Hum" and

Don Henley's "The End Of The Innocence."

 

Marc's experience at A&M Studios was the springboard for him to start engineering and mixing independently. He has worked with a diverse range of artists, from Stevie Nicks and Michelle Branch, to Dwight Yoakam.

Marc was nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best Rock Album” for his work with Melissa Etheridge on the album "Breakdown."
