Jason Lehning (born April 14, 1972) is an American producer, composer, musician and mixer/engineer living in Nashville, Tennessee.

Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Jason Lehning was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee in a musical family. The son of producer Kyle Lehning,[1] Jason was exposed to the recording process at an early age. After attending high school in Tennessee and graduating from Berklee College of Music[2] in Boston, Lehning returned to Nashville to begin work as an engineer.

Production/Writing Career[edit]

Lehning's earliest work was as an assistant engineer in several Nashville studios. He was allowed access to studios on down-time to invite artists to record.[3] His early demos with artist David Mead resulted in a record deal for the singer and Lehning's first major label job as a producer. Since then, Lehning has been active as a producer, musician, composer, mixer and engineer, contributing to over 350 albums.[4] The diverse range of artists with whom he has worked includes George Jones, Erasure, Mat Kearney, Guster, Bill Frisell, and Alison Krauss.[5] Lehning has won two Grammy awards as an engineer and was nominated for the Best Engineer Grammy in 2008.[6]

Work With The Silver Seas[edit]

In 1999 Lehning formed the band The Bees with singer-songwriter Daniel Tashian and drummer David Gehrke. When they got a record deal, they were forced to change the name because a UK band had the same name. They tour regularly in the UK and have made several BBC Radio and TV appearances[7] including "Later ... With Jools Holland". Their fourth album, Alaska, was released in 2013.
