My guest today is Ken Sluiter, a grammy-nominated recording engineer/producer/mixer whose credits include artists such as Heart, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Blunt, Andra Day and Weezer. His work can also be heard on many records from indie-icons including Mekons, The Jesus Lizard and Ok Go.
Working closely with producer Joe Chiccarelli, Ken has recently mixed several projects for artists such as Morrissey, Flogging Molly, Augustines, Night Riots and Divine Fits. Ken has also recorded and mixed several film and TV scores with composer, Brian Reitzell which include “Hannibal” (NBC) and “American Gods (STARZ). As a producer, Ken has worked on soundtrack songs with Debbie Harry and Shirley Manson, Siouxsie Sioux, Marc Almond and the B-52's.
To catch Kens first appearance on the podcast go to RSR111 where we talked about his journey from Chicago to LA and becoming an early adopter of Pro Tools. Today we will be focusing on mixing and the projects he has been working on recently.
