Local music studio owner produces joy for thousands in metro Detroit
Taylor Greenshields is among the students who followed the noble advice of high school counselors everywhere: Pursue a profession that brings you the most joy, not necessarily the most money.
A drummer and lover of music since the eight of 8, the Ypsilanti resident and 2012 graduate of Canton High School manufactures endorphins while managing a comfortable (and high-tech) recording space for aspiring musicians in his basement music studio.
It’s a mini-Motown-esque space, if you will, for people who yearn to grow their music-fueled ambitions.
During the summer months, the always-hustling owner of Fundamental Sound Co. devotes a lot of his time to live sound production, mixing and mastering, and sound design for outdoor concerts, including the Fun Fest, a popular music festival he founded three years ago at Ypsilanti’s Frog Island Park.
Greenshields is living the dream — and the people he helps along his journey are reaping benefits from his harmonious efforts.
