Whether you are looking for a drummer, audio engineer, producer or simply just an interesting person to hang around, David Montuy is always a top choice. Involved in music since he was 12, David has always being passionate about creating the best, most original version of everything he is involved with.
Rock music has served as his main outlet throughout his career. But don't let that mislead you. He studied Orchestral Percussion and Audio Engineering/Music Production in the finest schools of Mexico City; making him an all-around (and somewhat eccentric) musician/producer.
“I had the great fortune for David Montuy to call to my studio in Dublin in 2015. When we met it was obvious immediately that this man had the right stuff for being a studio engineer. Within a week he demonstrated his great patience, attention to detail in music and more importantly to clients!! He proved to me what a great musical ear he had and in the best way possible was ever present to confirm if Sonics and Performances were the best that they could be.” says Ciarán Byrne, owner/co-founder of Cauldron Studios Dublin, Ireland and Grammy and IFTA award winning Sound Engineer.
As member of the Cauldron family, he worked his way up to being one of the in-house sound engineers. The Waterboys, Celtic Woman, Johnny McEvoy, Hope Sandoval and the Warm Inventions and 20th Century Fox movie "Sing Street" were some of the projects Dave worked on while being in The Cauldron.
In 2017 he decided to move to Nashville, USA to keep on perfecting his skills. During his time at World-class Blackbird Studio Dave got to learn from legendary producers and sound engineers, the likes of Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Frank Sinatra, Toto), Richard Dodd (George Harrison, Robert Plant, Tom Petty), Steve Jordan (John Mayer, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards), Russ Long (Wilco, Dolly Parton, Sixpence Non The Richer) and Tim Lauer (Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, HBO series Nashville).
With some experience gathered, Dave went back to Mexico City, mainly to work as house engineer at Topetitud Studios. There he got to work with well stablished Latin American artists such as Molotov, Los Ángeles Azules, Ely Guerra, Natalia Lafourcade, Ximena Sariñana, Beto Cuevas, Bengala and HelloSehorse. As well as with current highly successful artists like Kevin Kaarl and Ed Maverick. Alongside with composers/producers Camilo Froideval and Dan Zlotnik, he was part of amazing projects, mainly several Netflix and Amazon series/movies (Luis Miguel, Maradona: Sueño Bendito, Selena, La Casa de las Flores, Monarca), including Alejandro G. Iñárritu's Bardo from 2022.
Dave's goal is not to record sounds into a tape or computer; Dave's goal is to capture the unique sound of every artist in its most raw form and share it with the rest of the world through his own vision.
