Early Life and Education
Dan Leffler was born June 11, 1964 in Takoma Park Maryland (a suburb of Washington DC) and became interested in music and recording early when he purchased two mono open reel recorders.

At University of Maryland, he launched his own franchise house painting business by employing college students during summer breaks to paint homes. This experience provided valuable marketing, management and financial skills.

After moving to Nashville, he quickly joined legendary producer/engineers like Richard Dodd (George Harrison, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison) and Peter Coleman (Blondie, Pat Benatar and The Knack). From them he gained recording techniques as well as nearly sixty years’ of knowledge that has been passed along from them.
