Anthony J. Resta
Anthony J. Resta is a Canadian record producer and musician. A multi-instrumentalist, he is a known for his use of vintage audio equipment. He has earned twelve RIAA certified gold and multi-platinum awards and has been featured in many articles for his innovative recording techniques. Some of his past clients have included Duran Duran, Elton John, Needtobreathe, Collective Soul, Guster, Megadeth, Perry Farrell, Nuno Bettencourt, Andrea Surova, Lucia Moniz, Dale Bozzio, TV Mania, Shawn Mullins, Del Marquis of Scissor Sisters, Green River Ordinance, Sarah Evans, The Cinnamon Fuzz, New Collisions, Blondie, Boys Don't Cry, and The Making Of The Making Of.
After signing on with Kathy Anaya of Lippman Entertainment in Los Angeles in 1994, he began attracting more high profile clients.
His first solo album called Demos of Saturn, originally released in the mid-1990s under the name Ajax Ray-O-Vaque, quickly sold out its initial production run and was only intermittently available on eBay until its release on iTunes in 2009.
Resta spent years working with engineer Karyadi Sutedja at studio Bopnique Musique in an old textile mill just west of Boston. The 4,000-square-foot (370 m2) studio is full of vintage recording equipment from the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, as well as high end modern recording gear. All of the vintage gear (and Karyadi) have been moved to Paramount Studios in Los Angeles, where Resta continues to revolutionize recording in a nicer climate.
