Today we’d like to introduce you to Tyler Heberlie.
Tyler, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I started Around five years ago, so I was about fourteen years old. I started by walking through my hometown guitar shop with my father, and I remember looking down and seeing an old analog audio board. I told my dad I wanted to learn how to run that as a joke. The next thing I knew, my father found a person I could shadow that next week. After following that person, I fell in love with doing live audio. A few years later, when Covid hit, I worked for my church where I started. With covid, we had to shut down for six months; with having no in-person services, we went to 100% online services. Being online, we had to record everything, mix and master it to release it on streaming services. That’s where I started doing studio work and haven’t stopped. Fast forward to college, I moved in with my roommate Oliver Lewis, an audio engineer. So we got along very well, very fast. We decided to create a Studio in our dorm room called All Smiles Studio. He would make tracks and then send them to me to master with his songs or anyone he was working with. Later on, we enjoyed working together.
Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not, what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
So far, the road has been smooth. We’ve only had some minor little bumps along the road so far. Like the dorm room we lived in for six months. If you don’t know, the room Oliver and I shared was about a ten-by-ten room to share between the two of us. With that, we’ve had some recording problems because of the room’s acoustics. But we have learned where to place a mic and have new tools to help.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
For All Smiles Studio, I am a Mixing and Mastering engineer. I also make a live sound for shows that we put on. I have recently worked on a song with a good friend. His name is BBoy Zero. We have worked on a song together, and It is supposed to be out pretty soon in the next month or two. I would have to say it is one of the favorite songs that I have done. I’ve also worked with Oliver Lewis on his newest album, Overworked & Underpaid. I mastered a few songs on the album, and I enjoyed working on that album too.
What are your plans for the future?
Right now, I plan to go through college and continue to work at All Smiles Studio. Then I will see my options for a young, hungry engineer.
