Learn From the Audio Engineer Who Recorded Alice in Chains

The RECORDING CONNECTION mentors have a long list of production and engineering credits, including working with some of the world’s top rock bands and artists–among them the legendary rock band Alice in Chains.

When you enroll in our revolutionary recording school, we hook you up for personal mentoring with one of these highly-qualified and trusted world-class professionals.  Imagine learning the skills of music production and audio engineering inside a recording studio where Alice in Chains and similar bands have recorded. With our mentor-extern program, it’s not a fantasy–it’s reality.

Alice in Chains formed in Seattle in the late 1980s, rising to prominence during the emerging grunge rock movement (although many contend that the band’s sound is closer to heavy metal than grunge). Owing in part to the guitar work of Jerry Cantrell and the vocals of the late Lane Staley, the band went on to sell over 25 million records, earning them eight Grammy nominations and landing them at Number 34 on VH1’s list of the “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.” Alice in Chains has also gained a reputation for being a primary influence for a number of future rock bands, including Godsmack, Creed, Nickelback, Avenged Sevenfold and numerous others.


A rock band like Alice in Chains won’t record in just any studio, or with just any engineer or producer–bands like these only work with the best. Indeed, Alice in Chains has recorded in several of the very recording studios where our student externs are learning right now, including studios in Los Angeles and in the band’s hometown of Seattle.

If our RECORDING CONNECTION mentors are trusted by acts like Alice in Chains, just think what you could learn by externing with one of these professionals in room where Jerry Cantrell did some of his best guitar work, or where Lane Staley once belted his vocals.
