We had the good fortune of connecting with Eric Hebert and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eric, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
I think a lot of people may not associate customer service as the keystone in the industry of music production/engineering. It’s very much a marriage of creativity, technical skills, and customer service. At the end of the day, it’s always about pleasing the client and bringing out their best – resulting in a product they are proud of.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Making a career in the music and audio industry can certainly be challenging. It’s an industry that is constantly evolving with technology and requires the ability to adapt. I figured the best way to make it in this industry is to not limit yourself in excelling at one specific thing. I work primarily out of my home studio where I produce, record, mix, and master music and podcasts. However, I also tour with artists as their Production Manager and Front of House Engineer to mix their concerts, play guitar as a hired musician, work on production sets for movies as a sound mixer, and mix movie trailers that are released in theaters.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them camping at one of my favorite spots on the Mogollon Rim, head to Sedona for some hiking (making sure to stop at Gabriela’s Taco Shop in Camp Verde for breakfast burritos), drive the 89 to Flagstaff from Sedona, hop around the great breweries Flagstaff has to offer, leave the next morning for the Grand Canyon and then make our way back to the valley.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I have an endless list of people who have been a crucial part in my journey, but I would like to give a shoutout to my parents and family who have always been supportive and encouraging in my pursuit in the music industry as well as every client who has trusted me with handling their art whether it was in the studio or on the stage.
