Just like the foodie/chef he is, Mariano Mattei mixes his roles as musician, businessman, producer, engineer, entrepreneur, family man, and IT tech into a perfect blend.

An active player in the Philadelphia music and recording scene for more years than he'd like to admit, Mattei has been a recording producer and engineer, songwriter and live sound man, guitarist, vocalist, and touring music artist, playing the original music scene along the east coast.

Producer / Partner

Mattei's inclinations for arranging and production extended beyond his own musical artistry from his earliest years in the industry.

Maybe it was his obsession with perfection, but his focus on creating a perfect live sound was something he would work on for all the acts on any bill he was included on.

Mattei's desire to pursue the tradition of world-class recording in Philadelphia is challenged only by his passion for authentic Italian cooking, and his approach to production and recording is no doubt influenced by his work as a high-level network troubleshooter.

Let's just say that he understands better than most that if you want to achieve a gourmet result, you need to pay close attention to every detail: from your production chops to your ability to relate to an artist. Indeed, Mattei takes special interest in nurturing up-and-coming artists and helping them deliver a sound and product they are thrilled with.

"I grew into being a producer and building Philly Sound Studios from an artist's perspective.

I know what it's like to be on the artist's side of the relationship, and I do things differently because of it" says Mattei.

Not one to sit still for long, Mariano continues to write, sing, and play guitar for his original band, REAL.

He also keeps deep connections to his Italian roots in Civitella Casanova and Monteroduni, cementing his credentials as a bona-fide Italian chef.
