Interview with Jo Walker
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Depends on the project. Digital is getting better and I believe most of the audience no longer can tell whether it has analogue or even hybrid elements involved. Digital allows for quicker changes and faster work flow, however, in some projects you can tell from the first listen that the analogue approach would suit the piece better.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love the variety in my job, its nice working in different genres and with different goals in mind. My job and purpose are to take what's in the artists head, understand their vision and enhance it.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been mixing bands since I was 13 back in Jersey. I left the rock in 2009 to study sound design at Central School Of Speech And Drama. I have been working professionally in the industry since graduating in 2012, both nationally and internationally.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I work a lot on mixing songs and podcast episodes for comedy band The Horne Section. I have been their Tour Manager and Mixing Engineer since 2013. Since working with them I have mixed and mastered 2 albums with them and 1 single.
