Julian McKenzie commenced working at Newmarket Studios in 2009, initially as an assistant engineer, progressing into the position of house engineer- and subsequently studio manager in 2012. As studio manager he oversaw a period of upgrade to the studio in the form of ongoing renovations and improvements while maintaining the studio’s affinity for vintage and classic high quality audio equipment. Passionate about music, art, education and the expression of sound- during this time he also enjoyed teaching studio engineering in a Cert IV Music Industry course, holding classes at Newmarket Studios, as well as a brief career as a singing teacher. He has also worked for several years with the mastering department at Dex audio and has a solid knowledge of the entire recording process from song construction to finished records. In the recent years his career as a singer, performer, and songwriter has meant a busy schedule balancing international touring and engineering duties at Newmarket. When he cannot be found in the studio or on stage- his time is spent mostly in, or on, the ocean.

Along with his extensive studio engineering work, Callum’s experience with live engineering has allowed him to work with a diverse range of artists both around Australia and overseas, including the USA and Asia. Some of the artists he has toured with include: Big Scary, Vance Joy, Courtney Barnet, Saskwatch, British India, The Cat Empire, Dan Auerbach, Dorsal Fins,  & Fraser A Gorman to name a few….
Exposure to such a vast range of musicians and musical styles over the years both in the studio and live setting has allowed Callum to hone his ear and production techniques to consistently produce an impressive, unique and identifiable sound. In addition to this, Callum’s professionalism, strong work ethic and ability to deliver a polished and considered sound for artists time and time again, is testament to why this engineer’s diary has limited free space throughout the year.
