Jason Powers

Hi! My name is Jason Powers. I’m a Portland, Oregon-based audio engineer. I love what I do. Some  of the services I can provide:

Recording, Mixing & Production: I was co-owner of Type Foundry Recording in Portland, OR from 2000-2020, and made many records there and elsewhere. This includes work with Moon Duo, The Decemberists, Grails, Scout Niblett, and Blue Cranes. My work spans a wide variety of genres from indie-pop to Americana, jazz, out/experimental and punk. To hear some examples of projects I’ve worked on, you can visit my Soundcloud page. Also, here is a selected discography of my work.

Mastering & Audio Restoration:  Need that final touch to elevate your mix or album & properly formatted files for manufacture and distribution? I can do that. I have worked on a number of projects for the Portland-based Beacon Sound label, and many others. Please inquire about rates.

Live Sound: I have toured the world extensively with acts such as Matthew Dear, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Ólafur Arnalds The Mountain Goats, Cibo Matto, Portland Cello Project, EMA, HTRK, and Laura Veirs. I am also one of the Audio Coordinators for Portland-based Pickathon music festival. For more information about this, visit my live sound page.

Live Multi-Track Recording & Mixing for Streaming/Broadcast: In 1999 & 2001 I did live multi-track capture for two of Olympia’s famous YoYo a GoGo festivals. More recently, I’ve done this work at Portland venue Mississippi Studios, Pickathon, for NPR’s Live Wire Radio show, and for various performance pieces. My live recording page can tell you more about this.

Tech/Consulting: I’m available for various other types of tech, audio consultation and non-musical audio work including tape machine calibration, audio editing, as well as advancing for touring bands. For more details on this go here.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions/requests at: jason@typefoundrystudio.com.  I do enjoy traveling for work, and also will mix projects remotely. If you’d like to work with me and you don’t live in Portland, get in touch.
