Women’s Audio Mission (WAM), a San-Francisco-based non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of women in the recording arts, has announced a panel at the upcoming South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival (SXSW) in Austin, TX. The Panel, “Women in the Recording Studio,” will be held on March 19th from 12:30-1:30 pm in Room 11AB, Austin Convention Center.
The Panel, “Women in the Recording Studio,” will be hosted by WAM Founder/Executive Director Terri Winston and will include: Trina Shoemaker (Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris, Queens of the Stone Age) and two-time GRAMMY winner Sylvia Massy (Tool, Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, REM), Ann Mincieli (Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Usher, Jay-Z, Drake) and GRAMMY winner Emily Wright (Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Kelly Clarkson).
“This is such an amazing group of GRAMMY winning engineers and producers, who just happen to be women, on this panel,” commented WAM Founder/Executive Director Terri Winston. “We will discuss their experiences recording, mixing and producing a wide range of artists from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Tool to Sheryl Crow to Alicia Keys and indie acts too. We'll be sharing tips, techniques, and favorite gear used on these projects and in professional studios, as well as talking about how musicians should prepare for sessions, how to find the right engineer/producer and the advantages of a studio environment.”
