Hello! My name is Jonny and I'm a recording and mixing engineer, and music producer from Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK. I specialise in rock, punk, and alternative rock and I'm equally comfortable working with new and upcoming bands, as well as those who have been around the block a few times.
I work primarily from Blast Recording Studios in Newcastle Upon Tyne, a fantastic facilty in the city's creative hub which features a fantastic SSL console, and analogue equipment from the likes of Neve, Urei, Chandler, and Empirical Labs
So if you have songs ready to mix, would like to work with a producer or would like some help with your arrangement, get in touch and lets work together!

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!
