Producer / Mix Engineer / Recording Engineer
(David Bowie, Tony Visconti, Kristeen Young, Fiona Silver, Esperanza Spalding)
After being discovered by Tony Visconti, David Bowie’s final album “Blackstar“ is just the beginning. Erin Tonkon is recognized as one of New York’s newest and most talented music producers.
I have known Erin Tonkon for quite some time. She’s an incredible talent as well as a great person. Join us as we discuss working with David Bowie for three years on his final record, her relationship with legendary Music Producer Tony Visconti, some of her favorite gear and studio experiences, how we frame success, and the underrepresentation of women in music production.
