Jonny is such a pleasure to work with, he is kind and he just gets it so right. He is just so good at what he does! Love!
I have worked in the Studio with Jonny on a number of occasions over the past three years. Each time, he has proven himself to be a hard worker and has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Always taking on our ideas and happy to input his own when asked. Jonny always gives mixes back in a timely fashion and makes any changes with haste; if there are any to be made. Jonny is, and always will be our go to engineer. Not only would I recommend him to anyone, anyone would be lucky to have him.
Jonny worked with us on our debut album and then more recently on our new singles, he is a pleasure to work with and really took on board what we wanted and delivered great results. We had a great time working with Jonny and we’d fully recommend his work to any indie/ alternative/ punk/ rock bands and musicians looking for a great quality sound and an enjoyable environment to work in.
I’ve worked with Jonny on and off the board, he runs an organised session and gainfully puts forward constructive ideas and suggestions as well as achieving a terrific sounding well mixed end result
Interview with Jonny Burgess
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! I like to record with analogue, but mixing wise I like to work in the box. 'Save' 'load' and 'undo' are very underrated tools!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Do you know what all of these buttons do?
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it is a technical role!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: I usually want to know what music prospective clients are listening to, I want to know what they're in to so that I have a better idea of the direction to take the song in
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Perfect isn't always right!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I tend to work mostly with rock, punk, and alternative rock bands, but I'll turn my hand to most things!
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Usually I work quite fast. If I'm recording, I like to work with quite a bit of outboard, and I want to get the recording as close to the finished product as possible. When mixing I prefer to work in the box, its good to be able to walk away, get some perspective, and come back later.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work from a very well treated recording studio which features an SSL AWS 900+ console, and outboard from Neve, Urei, Empiracal Labs, and many others
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I grew up on Jerry Finn records, and love the work of Tom Lord-Alge, Andy Wallace, and Rich Costey
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Given the demand for near constent content from artists these days, I typically work on relitively short projects, sometimes single by single, or on EP's, I do enjoy getting stuck into an album from time to time! Usually I'll record, mix, and produce the whole project, but equally happy doing any combination of those three things!
