Dan Criswell


As a Cleveland native, Dan was raised on all types of music from rock, to country, to hip-hop/rap, to pop music. He found himself gravitating towards hip-hop/rap as a young musician, listening to artists like Kanye West, Travis Scott, Post Malone, J. Cole, and many more in the modern music scene. 


Dan was introduced to live music at a young age, playing the trumpet throughout his childhood and being surrounded by musicians in his household. He started producing instrumentals in high school for local rap artists and, in the process, found a passion for professional audio. Dan graduated with a degree from Tri-C’s Recording Arts and Technology program and started working as an intern for Lava Room Recording. 


Over the years, Dan has worked with artists from Cleveland to Sweden as a freelance engineer and producer. He is no stranger to the modern sound, and he strives to make every recording his best work.
