GPS is excited to announce the addition of Grammy-nominated producer, mixer, and songwriter Bill Reynolds to the client roster. While best known as the bassist and a producer and co-writer for the iconic Band of Horses, Reynolds has built a formidable body of work with such artists as Lissie, Floating Action, and Truth and Salvage Co.
Originally from Asheville, North Carolina, Reynolds left a full-ride scholarship for classical bass performance at Appalachian State to tour with Sub Pop records band The Blue Rags, which he co-founded. After two full-length albums and 5 years of touring, he built a recording studio in Asheville where he made records for the next 7 years while actively touring with various bands including Drugmoney and Donna the Buffalo.
In 2007, while co-producing and engineering the Avett Brothers’ Emotionalism at Echo Mountain Studio, Reynolds was introduced to Band of Horses who were working on their album Cease to Begin. Frontman Ben Bridwell asked Reynolds to join the band when they began touring in support of the record. In 2010, their album Infinite Arms was nominated for the Grammy award for Best Alternative Album. Reynolds contributed production, engineering, bass, and a co-write for the song “Life on Earth,” which was featured on the Twilight: Breaking Dawn Soundtrack. Many more of his songs have found homes on hit TV shows including House, Justified and Army Wives.
Working from Ojai, CA, Reynolds recently finished mixing albums for Truth and Salvage Co., Floating Action, and Sea Stars, and is currently mixing forthcoming Band of Horses live material. Reynolds also recently finished co-writing and producing the song “One, Two” with Lissie for the new Harrison Ford film Paranoia, and in August 2013 he relocated to Nashville into producer Jay Joyce’s former studio.
