Randy Staub is one of the most prolific rock mixers of the last decade. Staub has worked with some of the largest names in music, mixing tracks for artists such as Nickelback, Metallica, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Nickelback, U2, Cher, Celine Dion, 3 Doors Down, Avril Lavigne, Iggy Pop, H.I.M, Coheed and Cambria, Hinder and many others. He has been nominated for the Juno award for “Recording Engineer of the Year” nine times, winning in 2002 for his work with Nickelback on the tracks “How You Remind Me” and “Too Bad”.
Staub got his start when he was offered a job at A&M studios, but being Canadian he had to wait for his immigration papers to arrive for his move to LA. As he waited, producer Bob Rock offered Staub a job engineering a project he was working on. After the project was finished, Rock asked Staub to come work with him full time at his Vancouver studio, but Staub declined as he was already scheduled to go to LA. Rock persisted and finally Staub conceded and the Rock/Staub duo formed, leading to a long string of rock masterworks, one of the notables being Metallica’s self-titled album also called The Black Album. Staub still lives and works out of Vancouver, he never did move to Los Angeles, and continues to work with emerging and legendary artists such as Jet Black Stare, Thousand Foot Krutch, The Almost and the reformed Alice In Chains.
