Philip Chmalts Onboard Engineer
Originally born in Kaliningrad, Russia, Philip hails from Chicago, Illinois. His musical career started when he began playing the saxophone in 4th grade. In high school, he took lessons and played in many of his school’s jazz bands. By 15, he learned drums and played in a cover band with his friends. Realizing that music was something that he wanted to try his hand at professionally, he was accepted to Berklee College of Music and received his Bachelor’s degree in Music Production and Engineering. At Berklee, the studio became his passion and he has since produced albums with his friends and founded his own recording studio, Red Stair Records, in Allston, MA. Post graduation in 2013, he moved to LA where he worked at an Ad music house and then BMG. In his free time, Phil can be found exploring new places, on tops of mountains or at concerts seeing new bands.
