Producer, engineer, musician

Richard “Vern” Brummond is an American Producer/Engineer who isn’t afraid to get down and dirty with helping artists create the vision they have for their music.  After graduating from the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences in 2007, Vern worked out of mega-producer Sylvia Massy’s (Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash) Radio Star Studios as an in-house producer/engineer in California.  During this time Vern honed his craft in working with bands from all over the world creating spacious, elaborate, and just plain ‘ol big sounding radio-ready albums.  

After leaving Radio Star Studios Vern went freelance and eventually opened his own studio in Minneapolis Minnesota in 2014; Switches & Dials Recording Co.

In 2017, Vern moved to Oslo after participating in a Norwegian reality-tv series and is now spends his time on the faders and working as a professional wrestler.  Whether you are looking for a heavily produced and polished record, a gritty and raw heart-thumping single, or anything in-between, Vern can help you bring the best out of your music at Urban Sound Studios.
