Kato Khandwala


Kato Khandwala is an American Record Producer and Mixer who got his start working in New York City. As a Multiple Platinum and Gold award winner, he has produced albums for artists such as The Pretty Reckless, Blondie, Drowning Pool, Pierce The Veil and worked with Paramore, Papa Roach, Breaking Benjamin and My Chemical Romance, among many others. A Berklee College of Music graduate, Kato has multiple degrees and worked as a touring and session musician with highly successful artists.

In 2014, The Pretty Reckless’ song “Heaven Knows” was Billboard’s Rock Song of the Year and The Pretty Reckless also came out with three consecutive #1 singles from their album “Going to Hell”, which broke the record for the longest amount of time that a female fronted Rock band has held number 1 on the charts. Kato also produced Fearless Records’ biggest selling release, which was Pierce the Veil’s, “Collide with the Sky”.

Besides producing, recording, and mixing records, Kato also enjoys discovering new bands, traveling, and taking photographs of his experiences.

Recently, Kato has worked on albums for Scar the Martyr, We Are Harlot, My Secret Circus, Aranda, and One OK Rock, all of which will be, or have been, released in 2015.
