Recording/sound engineer John Frye, who was born in Framingham, Massachusetts, shares a love for music with his engineer brother [a=Brian Frye] (who works regularly with Jermaine Dupri and has made records with Mariah Carey, Destiny's Child and Alicia Keys). The two eventually gravitated to the West Coast, where they slowly got drawn into both the playing and business sides of the industry. Growing up during the era of mega-production that was the '70s, and experimenting with his own ear over time, John became especially attentive to the mechanics of sound. And when his brother began to do live sound for San Francisco area bands like the Tubes, his curiosity soon made him aware of a art school in Atlanta that also offered a music industry curriculum.
