[image-1] Elliott Elsey is the locally renowned studio manager of Truphonic Recording in West Ashley. Hidden away in a cozy spot right off of St. Andrews Blvd., Elsey has recorded both national and local artists.

His career reached a new height earlier this year when Ranky Tanky's Good Time, which he helped engineer, received a Grammy for best Regional Roots Album. He seemed like the perfect person to ask: Who are your top five most important producers?

1. George Martin
2. Quincy Jones
3. Ian Fitchuk
4. Rick Rubin
5. Bill Szymczyk
