Producer / Mix Engineer / Artist
(Paramore, Pete Yorn, Beck, Tenacious D, Blink-182, M83, A Perfect Circle, Chris Cornell, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Jimmy Eat World, Nine Inch Nails, Failure)
In 2015 Ken’s band FAILURE released their first album in 19 years, and he won a Grammy for “Best Rock Song” as Mix Engineer on PARAMORE’s hit “Ain’t It Fun”. Ken’s work on both sides of the glass has been varied and successful. We were happy to sit down with him backstage in San Diego to discuss the making of his new record, a secret mix project he’s really excited about, his favorite gear, life as a touring artist, plugins, and some of the stuff he uses in the Failure live show.
