Musician, producer and engineer Ethan Mentzer grew up around a lot of music in Pennsylvania: his parents played records, his multi-instrumentalist sister became a music teacher and his neighbors had a house filled with guitars, keyboards and drums. At the age of 3, his grandfather gave him a toy guitar that he couldn’t put down until taking up the trombone, piano and more at age 9. As a teenager, Mentzer was a drum major in the high school marching band, founded a punk band and played bass for a gospel group at church.

Mentzer moved to Boston at the age of 19 to attend Berklee College Of Music where he went on to receive his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Production and Engineering. At Berklee he met who would become his co-founding bandmates in The Click Five (Lava/Atlantic). In 2003 he befriended producer Mike Denneen (Fountains Of Wayne, Aimee Mann, Howie Day) and got a real world education while making many records under him.  

The Click Five released two albums on Lava/Atlantic Records — “Greetings from Imrie House” (2005) and “Modern Minds and Pastimes” (2007) — with combined worldwide sales of over 2 million, three gold records and eight different #1 singles in seven countries (including a #1 song on the US iTunes chart). The band performed in over 15 countries and in 2008 made history in Cambodia, performing the first rock concert ever held at Angkor Wat Temple (co-headlining with Placebo).

In 2009 Mentzer moved to Brooklyn, NY where he started his own project studio, befriended DC-area songwriter/musician Todd Wright (Celine Dion, Cazzette) and began playing in Miranda Cosgrove’s (Nickelodeon’s iCarly) band.


He has also composed music for film and TV including Daybreak, Shameless, Cruel Summer, Siesta Key, Lucky Bastards, Bad Night, Yours, Mine & Ours, Igor, Bigger Fatter Liar, Power Rangers, Sydney White, Taking 5, John Tucker Must Die, Hey Fibi.

Mentzer currently lives in Philadelphia with his wife and greyhound.
