My guest today is Tom Lord-Alge aka TLA a Multi Grammy winning mixer who started out as a young engineer in New York like his older brother Chris Lord Alge. Tom began his career as a touring lighting director before being thrown into the FOH seat when the original FOH engineer went ill. 

After 5 years of touring, Tom moved his focus to studio work and with his brother Chris worked at Unique Recording in New York. Then he was the resident mixer at what used to be known as "South Beach Studios", located on the ground floor of the Marlin Hotel in Miami Beach Florida.

TLA received two Grammy Awards for his work on Steve Winwood's Back in the High Life (1986), and Roll with It (1988), both winning in the 'Best Engineered Recording – Non-Classical' category. His third Grammy was for Santana's Supernatural (1999), which won Album of the Year. 

Tom has mixed records for U2, Simple Minds, The Rolling Stones, Pink, Peter Gabriel, OMD, Sarah McLachlan, Dave Matthews Band, Blink-182, Avril Lavigne, Hanson, Sum 41, Live, The Wallflowers, Weezer, Manic Street Preachers, New Found Glory, Story of the Year and Marilyn Manson, among others.

He now resides in Austin Texas where he has built 2 mixing rooms. SPANK Studios ATX houses TLA's SSL 4064G+ console and ORG Studios ATX houses TLA’s SSL Origin console.
