Biography

Engineer/producer Doug Diamond has been writing, recording, producing, mixing and mastering music for most of his life. He has over 20 years of experience in practically every type of music there is. A former staff engineer at world-famous Ocean Way Recording in Los Angeles, he graduated with honors from the recording program at The Grove School of Music (1990). Currently, he is finishing his Music Business Master Certification and his Music Supervision Professional Certification from the renown Berklee College of Music where he has the opportunity to learn directly from some of the best teachers in the music business.
