Bob Marlette has grown to be one of the most iconic and versatile artists of the Rock and Heavy Metal genres. Early on working as a session musician with artists like Al Stewart on Year of the Cat and Time Passages, he went on to begin writing music and co-producing with David Kirshenbaum. His work as a producer, songwriter, and mixer led him to work with affluent artists including Ozzy Osbourne (Prince of Darkness), Lynyrd Skynyrd (Gods & Guns, Last of a Dying Breed, Skynyrd Nation), Rob Zombie (Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, Essential, Spookshow International Live), Black Sabbath (Reunion), Tracy Chapman (Tracy Chapman, Crossroads), and many others.
Marlette has had his hand in both commercial hits and cult classics of his genre, including Saliva’s Grammy nominated platinum record Every Six Seconds. He produced, engineered, and mixed the album’s angsty hard rock and hip hop songs, along with co-writing several tracks including the hit single “Click Click Boom” described as “a mosh king’s dream” upon its release. He also produced Black Sabbath’s 1998 album Reunion which went platinum in the U.S. and Canada. His work as producer/mixer/engineer on Seether’s Disclaimer II contributed to the vast success of the platinum album. Marlette has also recently been sharing his wisdom with online resources like Pro Mix Academy and Produce Like A Pro to aid the next generation of producers, mixers, and audio engineers.
