Scott Smith and his wife Jennifer Ferguson Smith had the unusual pleasure of collaborating with best-selling novelist – and sometime musician – Lee Child. The outcome was Just The Clothes On My Back, a collection of songs about Child’s long-running fictional character, Jack Reacher. Performed by them, the album was recorded and produced in their home studio.
Avoiding the term ‘engineer’ as it “sounds too tech-y to be part of a creative venture”, Scott describes himself as a musician/songwriter/producer “in that order specifically”. He has however been very hands-on in the studio from early on in his musical career and has recently added an iD44 to his setup, which already included the legacy Audient product Mico, a 2-channel microphone preamp. Audient catches up with him to find out more.
