Interview with Marc Urselli

Continuing our series of interviews with people working in different roles within the music industry, we chatted with producer and engineer, Marc Urselli.

Marc Urselli opened his first recording space at the age of 17, in his parents’ basement in Italy. He later moved to New York to begin an internship at the legendary recording studio EastSide Sound, where he is now the resident Chief House Engineer. Over the years he has produced and recorded a number of big name artists, including Lou Reed, Buddy Guy, U2, Elton John, and many more. 

Urselli’s most recent work was a labor of love, spanning the last 4 years. Marc has been a longtime collaborator of producer Hal Willner, who sadly passed away from COVID-19 in April. Their last work together was Angelheaded Hipster: The Songs of Marc Bolan and T-Rex, which was released in September. The recording brought together a number of artists such as Nick Cave, Kesha, and Joan Jett. 

Marc chatted with us about what it was like working with Hal Willner, how he started out, and his interesting upcoming project with death metal musicians and throat singers from around the globe.
