Billy Decker was born on August 28, 1967 and raised in Nebraska. He received a B.S. in Criminal Justice from the University of Nebraska and then went on to be the salutatorian at Full Sail Center for the Recording Arts in 1992. After honing his skills all over the country for two years in various studios, Decker landed in Nashville where he has been working ever since. He’s mixed 16 Billboard #1”s to date - most recently Dustin Lynch’s “Riding Roads”. Decker has mixed for such notable artists as Sam Hunt, Chris Young, Rodney Atkins, Dustin Lynch, Parmalee, Colt Ford, Darius Rucker, and the list goes on and on. Decker also mixed George Jones’s last album before he passed. Billy Decker made history in July of 2014 when Sam Hunt became the most added new artist of all time. Decker works in a unique way. “I mix really fast. Most of my mixes are finished within an hour. To be able to do this, I use a lot of templates in pro tools. Instead of spending two hours EQing a kick drum I can do it in thirty seconds, because I have set up templates for the album that outline all the basic parameters for each instrument. I can then work on fine tuning - working on the entire mix, rather than focusing on individual adjustments. It’s a good way to work. It’s fast efficient and most importantly it’s fun."
