Jason Lehning was born and raised in Nashville in a musical family. The son of producer Kyle Lehning (producer for Randy Travis, Jason was exposed to the recording process at an early age. After graduating from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Lehning returned to Nashville to begin work as an engineer. Lehning’s earliest work as an assistant engineer in several Nashville studios allowed him access on down-time to invite artists to record. His early demos with artist David Mead resulted in a record deal for the singer and Lehning’s first major label job as a producer. Since then, Lehning has been active as a producer, musician, composer, mixer and engineer, contributing to over 350 albums. The diverse range of artists with whom he has worked includes George Jones, Erasure, Mat Kearney, Guster, Bill Frisell, and Alison Krauss. Lehning has won two Grammy awards as an engineer and was nominated for the Best Engineer Grammy in 2008.

Recent cuts by Lehning include “Let’s Do Something Stupid” recorded by Thompson Square off of their upcoming album Masterpiece; “Run” recorded by The Buckleys which hit No. 1 in Australia; “Nag Champa” recorded by Republican Hair; and “Birthday Suit” from Charlie Worsham’s second album, Beginning of Things.
