Steve Bigas - Owner
Record producer Steve Bigas who secured a Grammy award as an engineer (Taj Mahal), a Grammy nomination as a guitarist (Ziggy Marley) and a Juno award (Engineer) Base is Bass and previously signed to "Dreamworks" by Robbie Robertson with his band "King Clancy", has created a new record label and studio based out of Willow Spring, NC.
Some of his inspiration and education grew from his experience as an engineer at the famed L.A. club called "The Mint", where he recorded such notable acts as; R.L. Burnside, Royal Crown Revue, B.J. Sharpe, Taj Mahal, Daniel Lanois, Harry Dean Stanton & Buck Cherry to name a few. His work at world-class facilities, such as, "The Record Plant & Abbey Road" and his relationships with top shelf producers that include Daniel Lanois (Bob Dylan, U2, Neil Young, Willie Nelson), Don Smith (Rolling Stones, Tom Petty) & Ross Hogarth (Jewel) are a testament to his dedication and skill level which sets the tone for the birth of Porcelain Records.
