Kevin Dippold is a man of many talents. Not only is he the producer for the independent record label Blue Pie Records and Planet Blue Pictures, but he’s also possesses an extensive skill set from over ten years of experience in the music industry, which includes song writing, engineering and mixing.
Kevin’s passion for music began in his elementary years when he started playing the trumpet. He then learned to play the guitar in middle school and played in bands throughout his teens and twenties, in particular, a band called ‘Wallace’s Line’.
Kevin was also able to branch out his passion for music through music production. He’s produced independent records for Jason Quicksall, Mark Rudd, Bexley, and has played with The Seeds and Spirits in The Sky (Billy Corgan/ Dave Navarro). Other artists Kevin has worked with includes Sarah Cate, Noble Tayler, Beck Black and Michael Jamieson. Kevin has also worked with other record producers including Kerry Brown, Linda Perry, Damien Reilly, Danny Saber, and Billy Corgan. As Kevin gained his experience and social networks within the music industry, he gained opportunities to work with some of the most established artists in the industry including: The Smashing Pumpkins, Ziggy Marley, and Jessica Simpson.
Kevin has also worked on a number of feature films as a composer, mixer, editor, and sound designer. In 2009, Kevin Dippold received the Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Award for his mixing work on The Smashing Pumpkins film, ‘If All Goes Wrong’. Along with their film, Kevin has worked on many projects for the Smashing Pumpkins, including their mixes for Guitar Hero, mixes of their 20th anniversary tour shows, and their 2012 album ‘Oceania’. In 2013, Kevin completed the scoring and mixing of a TV show for NBC Sports called “Nock Out”.
Kevin also continues to pursue his passion for music by writing and recording his own original material. When it comes to music, Kevin has found inspiration from many different music genres, as Kevin states: “I’ve been inspired by many artists from the ‘60s and ‘70s rock and jazz genres, as well as Bach and Beethoven. Eastern music has also inspired me because it addresses universal consciousness and enlightenment through sound. I have always made an attempt to put some of those elements in my music. I was stimulated by the idea of cosmic order and energy and was trying to express that understanding in my music. What I’ve learned about the cosmos through Falun Gong changed my thought process greatly.”
Kevin is currently finalizing mixes for his third solo album titled ‘In The Beginning’. The songs featured in the upcoming album are a diverse blend of rock with a hands-on, analog feel blending a spectrum of guitars, vintage keyboards, and modern synths. In his previous album, ‘Mesmerized’, Kevin collaborated with the late Sky Saxon of The Seeds for the lyrics in the album.
A number of Kevin’s tracks from his albums have been licensed for usage in advertising. In addition to his own music, Kevin also provides production and mixing services to a number of clients from his personal studio. Some of the artists that Kevin has collaborated and worked with in either a recording or production include: Sarah Kate, Beck Black, Vice Roy Bill and Michael Jameson.
