Hello fellow soundies, my name is Martin Shears. I am the head audio engineer at Tahoe Production House and the author of this blog. I am also a professional musician. For the past 25 years I have written, produced, recorded, performed, toured, ate, drank, and slept MUSIC. It is what feeds my soul and drives my passion. Of course my family does too but even they were found and born via my love of making music.
I live in South Lake Tahoe, California where I perform with my friend and business partner in the acoustic duo Ike & Martin (guess which one is me). Ike Marr and myself run a label/artist development outfit called Four Count Concepts. We represent several acts around the Tahoe basin, book gigs, develop web presence, record, and basically show them how to make a better living as artists. FCC also provides the audio recording equipment and services for Tahoe Production House which, along with the expertise of yours truly, helps round out TPH into the awesome full service facility that it is.
