International creative audio network Squeak E. Clean Studios has promoted Max Taylor from Senior Producer to Head of Production.
Taylor joined Squeak E. Clean Studios in 2020 after spending four years at 20th Century Fox coordinating music for the hit drama Empire. Since joining the team, he has produced a wide range of projects, including working collaboratively with Squeak’s global team on Budweiser’s Tomorrow Is Yours to Take campaign featuring Anderson.Paak as well as the recent Marriott Roam Around the World campaign that included a series of covers of Roam by the B-52s across a multitude of genres of sound.
In this new role, Taylor will draw from his background working across a wide range of roles with Squeak E. Clean Studios’ global network of artists and producers to streamline the production process, creating efficiencies that speak to the highly collaborative nature of the company across multiple time zones.
“Max is quite frankly one helluva great producer. On top of that, his varied experience gives him a unique ability to keep a more holistic eye over our production processes across the board. He is a natural and we’re thrilled to reward great talent,” notes Hamish Macdonald, Managing Director, Squeak E. Clean Studios.
“Producing, especially for the type of work that we do, requires a creative point of view, so my creative background and vocabulary will allow me to have a deep understanding of what our team and clients need and continue to refine our approach,” adds Taylor. “I’m really excited to take a step back and have the opportunity to ‘get under the hood’, look at the big picture and create processes that allow our team to do what they do best: create.”
Chicago native Taylor grew up in the music industry, spending his formative years around concerts and musicians with his father as a sound engineer. He studied Recording Industry at Butler University before kicking off his career in music ticketing and promotions. He spent five years working across multiple functions of live events between Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City, liaising between artists, management teams and venues to optimize the guest experience. In 2016, he joined the production team of Empire as a Music Production Liaison, overseeing the end-to-end process for the music-driven series.
