Audio Engineer

We’re not sure which impresses people more - the fact that Hayes Smith made All-State Band on bassoon in high-school, that his band toured the US for ten years and was featured in the original Tony Hawk video game (not the bassoon band), or that he once played with James Brown in front of 26,000 people (again, not on a bassoon). Credentials like these, in conjunction with a decade or so of mixing, has made Hayes one of the top 37 audio engineers at Republic. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing for his daughter and playing peek-a-boo with bass.
