Stefano Bonzi and Ross Lenzing have been playing music since they were little.
Both of them developed skills in different fields. Ross is a tech-genius who knows how to use any kind of equipment, while Stefano has a phenomenal natural ear and a great knowledge of music harmony and theory.
Stefano Bonzi is a freelance engineer born in Milan, Italy. After a career as a musician in Milan’s
underground music scene, Stefano moved to the US to study sound recording at the renowned Hartt School of Music. There he acquired an extensive background in
audio engineering technical skills, while expanding his musical knowledge, studying theory, and performing in ensembles. In addition to his applied and academic
experiences in the field of music, Stefano has studied voice performance with some of the most distinguished teachers in the US, including Dave Kyle who has
worked with Layne Staley of Alice in Chains, Liza Minnelli, and Geoff Tate of Queensryche, as well as Silvia Magnani from Milan.
He then brought his talent to Tapeworks Recording Studios, one of the oldest and most recognized recording facilities in Connecticut. There he became a staff engineer, specializing in recording and mixing some of the best a cappella groups in the area.
Stefano eventually moved to Los Angeles, CA, where he's now working with musicians and recording artists from all over the World.
Ross Lenzing is our Mastering Engineer. He studied Audio Engineering Technology at the University of Hartford. His studies focused on recording, acoustics, electronics, and music (at the Hartt conservatory, where he met Stefano). While at the University of Hartford, Ross studied recording technique with Jim Chapdelaine, a respected producer, musician, and engineer. Ross then interned as both a microphone technician and recording engineer assistant at Telefunken USA where he learned about the inner workings of some of the world's best microphones. He has since worked with many artists across a wide range of musical styles including rock, folk, jazz, rap, hip-hop, and classical. His signal flow is all analogue, his sound is always punchy and warm, his work is on par with the most renouned Mastering Engineers in the World.
