What do the diverse artists Peter Gabriel, Godsmack, Kid Rock, Mudvayne, Joni Mitchell, Coheed and Cambria, Silverchair, Staind and Tool all  have in common? Each has had the privilledge of having albums produced or mixed by 3 time Grammy Award winning Producer/Mixer David Bottrill.
When asked what genre of artists he focuses on, in a 2003 interview with MTV news Bottrill stated, I want everything to have a strong identity and be varied Ive done lots of different things over the history of my career and hes done it all with a tremendous amount of success with his albums having sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

Davids ability to work in between a variety of genres has given him a real insight into how to get the most out of the artists hes working with, regardless of their style. Fair to Midland guitarist Cliff Campbell once sited Bottrill as a large influence on his writing style, saying that as a band, All of our writing processes have always been usually someone writing a songand then everyone coming in and orchestrating what to do around ithe kind of helped us write songs together as a band (Netwavzradio.com).
