In her PSNEurope Women In Audio podcast, 2018 MPG Awards UK Producer Of The Year winner Catherine Marks told us that she believes there has been a ‘real shift in the industry’ over the past 12 months with regards to its attitudes towards women. It’s a view that appears to hold water.

Just this year, the aforementioned MPG Awards saw five key gongs on the night won by women (Manon Grandjean, Recording Engineer Of The Year Award; Marta Salogni, Breakthrough Engineer Of The Year; Imogen Heap, Inspiration Award; and Jane Third who won the A&R Award); the annual AIM (Association Of Independent Musicians) Women In Music event at London’s City Hall featured a panel session on Women In The Studio with some of the most prominent studio professionals in the UK and Red Bull Studios continues to host its monthly #NormalNotNovelty night, which provides workshops and networking opportunities for female engineers and producers.
