Dan JensenDAN JENSEN: Engineer

Dan Jensen is a Northeast Minneapolis based musician and recording engineer. Previously working out of The Devil’s Workshop, Dan has been recording at The Hideaway since 2009. A fan of exceptionally loud amps and sizable drum sounds, Dan does what he can to make sure the guitar amps are turned up a little too loud and tries his best to help every drummer get away with their closest Bonham impression. When he’s not busy irritating the neighbors, he also enjoys recording folk and bluegrass and will likely try to see how many times he can get away with asking for more layers of vocal harmonies.
