About Bill Reynolds
Grammy-nominated producer, engineer, mixer and songwriter Bill Reynolds has built a formidable studio career while maintaining his role as bassist for Band of Horses.
Originally from Asheville, North Carolina, Reynolds left a full-ride scholarship to Appalachian State for classical bass performance to tour with the Sub Pop records band he co-founded, The Blue Rags. 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 met Band of Horses who were coming in to work on their album Cease to Begin. They quickly became friends and 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 included 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, 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 Nashvile into Jay Joyce's former studio.
