Carmen Rizzo onboard to mix Dan Sindel “Marching In”..!
In an unprecedented move, multi-platinum, two-time Grammy nominee producer/engineer extrodinaire Carmen Rizzo agrees to add his talents in helping Dan in his debut CD effort “Marching In” – A tribute to the March King, John Philip Sousa.


Dan states: “I was reading the August edition of Electronic Musician and was taken in by Carmen’s cover story and somewhere in the article he said “I’m the sort of person to go to when somebody wants be edgy or a little bit different” and I just sat there and laughed thinking if he was not talking directly about me and my crazy projects… nobody is!!! So I mustered up the courage to contact Carmen, found his website and formulated an email asking if he would be interested in investigating what I do with the ‘Symphonic Guitars’ and would he be willing to talk to me about mixing a few tracks for my CD…
The very next day I had a reply to my email and I nearly ‘fell out of my chair’ when Carmen agreed to talk to me… Needless to say, I was stunned that he would give me the time of day especially if you take a look at his list of credits and discography. I am humbled and honored to have been given the opportunity to work with Carmen and as of this writing we are working on a few tracks and they sound AMAZING!!! I am very excited to be able to share the music soon enough!”
