The first step to building a career as a Mixer is to create an impressive portfolio to showcase your skills.
However – especially when first starting out – you will often work with inexperienced bands and sub-par recordings, which have you fixing mistakes instead of getting creative with your mix.
That’s why we’re providing you with a song featuring some of the world’s best musicians and songwriters, so you can show off your true potential as a mixer!
The Lickerish Quartet’s latest single ‘Lighthouse Spaceship’
The Lickerish Quartet consists of three former Jellyfish members Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Keyboardist/Singer/Songwriter), Eric Dover (Guitarist/Singer) and Tim Smith (Bassist/Singer/Songwriter).
After producing two critically acclaimed albums with the cult-rockband Jellyfish, Roger Manning went on to tour with Beck, Jay-Z, Blink 182 and Johnny Cash, while Eric Dover found his new home as a frontman for Slash and guitarist for Alice Cooper.
Tim Smith’s career development was equally amazing: he managed to claim a spot in Sheryl Crow’s band in 1996 and has been touring and recording with her ever since.
Recently, the 3 band members have reunited and teamed up drum virtuso Jeremy Stacey (Sheryl Crow, Joe Cocker), to revive the Classic Rock sound which Jellyfish was famous for:
With a heavy dose of ‘70s vibe, incredible Queen-like vocal harmonies (Brian May was actually a fan!) draped over jangly electric guitars and exceptional bass grooves, their arrangements and performances are second to none.
Today, YOU have the chance to get your hands on these recordings.
Mix a song by the industries Crème de la Crème, add it to your portfolio and entice new bands to work with you!
But that’s not all: You’ll have world-class Mixer Ken Sluiter (James Blunt, Weezer, Augustines) walk you through every step of the mixing process!
