Mike Wells (Mike Wells Mastering)
For over a decade Mike Wells mastered in San Francisco for artists such as Tommy Guerrero, Jet Black Crayon, Hot Buttered Rum, American Steel, The Paper Sons, Christopher Ferreira, and many more. During that time he became an outspoken advocate for comprehensively entering metadata during mastering, as well as an educator about the often confusing world of digital music metadata.
Mike spoke with me about why metadata is important, what caused him to move from San Francisco to L.A., and what can end the metadata format conflict.
