Soundcore Stories #GoldenSoundEdition | Simon Gogerly

This week, I had the opportunity to chat with Simon Gogerly, a GRAMMY Award winning audio engineer from the UK. Simon had the opportunity to work with some of the biggest artists to date such as U2, Paloma Faith, No Doubt, and Massive Attack.

Here’s some interesting background about Simon:

Back in 2006, he won the coveted Album of the Year Grammy award for his work on the U2 album “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb”. Simon started his career in bands and went on into the studio world. He trained with John Hudson, a legendary mix engineer of the 70’s and 80’s at London’s prestigious Mayfair Studios. During the four years at Mayfair, he also worked with a huge number of artists as an assistant and went on to mix The Farm’s hit “All Together Now.”

Other notable highlights of Simon’s career include:

#Fact 1: He worked on the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony and many other Danny Boyle’s projects.

#Fact 2: He is now a university lecturer and a freelancer with his own studio.

#Fact 3: Notable artists he has worked with: The Farm, U2, No Doubt, Gwen Stefani, P. Diddy, New Order, Underworld, and more.

In the Episode :headphones:

I spoke to Simon about what his career had been like from the 80’s till now in terms of music and technological changes. We also discussed how he had transitioned into education and passed on his knowledge, the differences between working on film music versus music artists, and what people want to learn today compared to when he first started his career.
