Tony Espie

 

A four-time ARIA Awards nominee (Best Engineer), Tony Espie is widely recognised as one of Australia’s top mixing engineers.

His vast studio experience spans over 35 years, having worked with some of the finest artists and producers from this country & around the world, crossing genres from pop to hip hop; indie rock to soul; electronica to jazz and film soundtracks.

Cutting his teeth at Sydney’s Studios 301 during the mid 80s, led to a stint in Europe & the US as 2nd engineer on the late legend Robert Palmer’s acclaimed album - ‘Heavy Nova’. Since then, Tony’s name has appeared in the credits of literally hundreds of impressive album & single releases. (see lists below)

For more than 25 years, Melbourne has been home, and whether he’s helming a mix at the famous Sing Sing Studios or applying his skills at his home-based mixing room, Tony’s passion for music and contemporary instinct is always evident on every project.
