Composer, Songwriter, Producer, Mix Engineer

Jonathan Wayne Kerr

JONATHAN KERR is a mix engineer, songwriter, composer, musician, and producer. Kerr began his audio engineering and producer journey in 1998 while pursuing an electronic music and film scoring degree. Kerr later transferred colleges to the University of Georgia where, the same major did not exist. Instead, he took the opportunity to major in Journalism with an emphasis in video production while simultaneously serving as the Lead House Engineer for AMF/Last Call - a popular music venue in Athens. During his time at the University of Georgia, Kerr studied with legendary analog mix engineers from Athens and performed live sound engineering for numerous Billboard Top 10 bands and artists while working with those engineers. Due to the unique timing of Kerr’s journey into engineering, Kerr was able to learn the wonders of the analog recording industry from the veterans while the industry was simultaneously transitioning into digital recording. This is truly a unique and valued aspect of Kerr’s audio foundation.

Kerr has written and produced tracks for a number of industry Gold and Platinum selling hip-hop and country artists. Some of these works include “Deliverance” for Bubba Sparxxx and Fading Slowly for Kip Moore - an ACM, CMA, and CMT award-winning artist with five top-10 Billboard- charting singles including two #1 songs. Deliverance went on to become a #1 Billboard song and was the lead single to Bubba Sparxxx’s sophomore album. Additionally, Kerr’s own composing career led him to create OTR - software that has now become the industry-leading composing tool for orchestral music production for Reaper DAW users.

In addition to the usual suspects of the highest quality audio gear found in Kerr’s studio for mixing, recording, and producing, Kerr’s studio is configured with four Vienna Ensemble Pro servers with a full assortment of premier sample library collections used for film score production and advanced midi orchestration. Kerr is also a multi-instrumentalist able to perform acoustic guitar, electric guitar, dobro, lap steel, mandolin, bass, and synths to any arrangement and production.
