I love to mix songs..I don't think there is a right or wrong way to mix; If it sounds good, an overall vibe is caught and, of course, your client is happy, it's good.! It's great to have every instrument sitting comfortably in it's own space, where it can sound its best while blending and complimenting the other instruments.
Engineered and produced, many projects over the last ten years. My first love is Funk music (P-Funk), though I am just as happy and capable of working on most genres.
I regularly work with George Clinton and many members of his 'mob' including Belita Woods, Gary Shider, Mudbone, Trazae, Tracey Clinton, Jerome Rodgers & Kendra Foster. Spent a couple of months writing and recording with them earlier this year in their studio in Florida. Mainly working on their new 'Parliament' album to be released in the new year.
I have also worked with Sly Stone, Lady Miss Kier (Deelite), Seven Eleven & many, new, up & coming artists.
I work closely, writing, engineering and producing songs, with my partner Rob Manzoli ( also my husband), formerly the writer and guitarist from 'Right Fred Fred'... 'I'm too Sexy' etc, in our studio in South London.
We have become a good music production team. With Rob's incredible musicianship and songwriting abilities we have put some really cool songs together, not only for SoundBetter type clients, but for our own album (in partnership with George Clinton), also to be released in the new year.

5 ReviewsEndorse Sue Brooks (Sue Manzoli)!
Sue did a great job on mixing my latest single. It was quite a complex track with layers of strings, brass, effects etc and she managed to achieve clarity throughout the spectrum and delivered a rich, dynamic finished mix. She was very interactive and made sure I was happy with feedback throughout, and delivered what I asked for on the brief and reference track. I will definitely be booking her for future releases
Sue is very efficient and professional. She is willing to explore possibilities and she doesn't mind making (multiple) changes :) great communication too, it's a pleasure working with her and we are glad to have her assistance on the project! We are really pleased, highly recommended!
She did an amazing job; she was really easy to deal with, she agreed to make the changes we requested, and definitively we will keep working with her, totally recommend !!
I can always count on Sue for her outstanding sound engineering skills. I’ve never mentioned this to Sue (or her guitarist partner Rob), but before I initially contacted them, I did a pretty deep dive into their music. Here’s what I found: on everything they do, they give everything they've got. That’s a champion’s mentality, and I like that.
This girls knows her stuff! Not just great sounds and great mixes, but great beats and great feel!
What she did on the George Clinton stuff is Fantastic!
