After graduating from Lebanon Valley College in 1996, Michael McCoy moved to New York City to take a job at renowned recording studio, The Hit Factory. At the start of his nine-year tenure there, he worked as an assistant engineer, honing his skills on projects in musical genres ranging from pop and rock to hip-hop and R&B, and from classical and jazz to Broadway cast albums and film scores. Michael was named chief engineer at The Hit Factory in 2001, a position he held until the studio closed in February of 2005. He got his break as an independent recording engineer in 1998 by working for artists and producers like Missy Elliot, Wyclef Jean, and Queen Latifah. Since then, his discography has expanded to include gold and platinum-selling pop acts such as Enrique Iglesias, Faith Hill, Beyoncé Knowles, The Black Eyed Peas and Coldplay. His engineering talents have also been called upon for projects with musical legends like Carole King, Chaka Kahn, and Tom Jones; jazz greats Tom Harrell, Dave Douglas, and Bill Connors, and for two film scores by Philip Glass.
