V6 Music + Post
Contagious Music rebranded as V6 Music + Post, relocates to a new studio at The Vault
Rob Deaner, veteran composer, producer, engineer, and sound designer has decades of experience making music in Pittsburgh, New York, and Nashville. He has spent the better part of the last two decades producing bands and working with advertising agencies, corporations and film productions, creating soundscapes and compositions. Previously running both Market Street Sound and Contagious Music, Deaner has now re-branded the firm as V6 Music + Post.
In 2019, Deaner began discussions with The Vault Recording Owner, Bob McCutcheon and Chief Engineer, Jimmy Hoyson about opportunities for possible teaming. That led to the construction of a new studio within The Vault Recording complex on Neville Island, which, as of July 2020, is now home to Deaner’s state-of-the-art music and post-production studio.
“The way that our industry works has changed so significantly over the years,” says Deaner, “that proximity to the city and the related expense and limitations of downtown, are no longer necessary. Plus, there are multi-platinum, Grammy winning engineers and producers at The Vault who also happen to be my friends. Access to that kind of talent and the highly sought after vintage gear felt like a winning combination.”
“The addition of Rob and V6 Music + Post adds a whole new dimension to the capabilities that can be offered for both of our companies,” says McCutcheon. “Adding his post-production, sound design, and creative talents certainly brings new opportunities for our clients. Access to our studio, team, and vintage gear is attractive for his.” McCutcheon adds, “Rob is a great addition to the overall talent ecosystem that we continue to build at The Vault. We are really excited to have him around.”
