WMC 2011 Schedule Panelist

Panelist Schedule:

The founder of Stadium Red, Claude started his first recording studio, RockIT Studios, when he was only 15. RockIT was the result of his involvement with a number of local bands as a writer, producer and performer combined with his interest in music and technology. In addition to being the bass player for Patent Pending (WPO Records) during their 2006 National Tour, Claude’s clients at RockIT included Evan & Jarone, The Dear Hunter, Warner Brothers, Maybeline Cosmetics & IMG Media. At 19, Claude followed his passion and dropped out of college to take over the Manhattan studio space that once housed Ornette Coleman’s Harmolodic Studios. Reconstructing the broken down space mostly himself, but also with the help of friends and family, he opened Stadium Red's doors in September of 2007 as a one man one studio operation. Today, Stadium Red has grown to be one of the top recording studios on the East Coast with five studios, multiple gold & platinum records, 15+ Grammy Nominations and 8 wins. An entrepreneur and dreamer, Claude has built Stadium Red as a studio facility, but also as a launching platform for the future. From managing and developing talent to creating a lifestyle brand, today Claude's efforts lie less in the studio and more in shaping new parts of the company as it climbs to be a staple in the music industry. Having been featured in numerous online and physical industry publications like MIX Magazine to speaking as an industry expert for varying panels and events like Winter Music Conference and The Recording Academy, he is already recognized as an authority in the music industry. To this day, Claude continues his work as an mix engineer & producer working with a select group of artists in Dance, Hip Hop/R&B and Rock. He also co-manages recording artist, Jeremy Carr and celebrity DJ’s, The Chainsmokers.
