Acclaimed producer and performer Justin Meldal-Johnsen is a sonic chameleon. Whether he’s producing music for Tegan and Sara and Neon Trees or performing on stage with Beck, Justin can seamlessly adapt to any situation and leave his own inimitable stamp. Fresh out of high school and armed with a bass guitar, he began working the night shift as a janitor at Cherokee Studios in Hollywood. A chance encounter at the studio landed him a job with famed string arranger David Campbell, and he struck up a friendship with Campbell’s son Beck. Justin has played bass and made contributions to most all of Beck’s albums: Mutations , Midnite Vultures , Sea Change , Guero , and The Information (2006). Simultaneously, he’s been a studio go-to for a surprisingly diverse array of artists such as The Dixie Chicks, Ladytron, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Garbage, Dido, Nelly Furtado, Courtney Love, They Might Be Giants, Mark Eitzel, Goldfrapp, Emmylou Harris, Pink, Brad Mehldau, Macy Gray, Pete Yorn, Sara Bareilles, Cass McCombs, Turin Brakes, The Mars Volta, Blood Orange, and more.
