Highlights of Callum’s Work

Callum Barter has been busy working as an Engineer/Producer for the last 14 years across Australia & beyond. After having made records out of a variety of studios over the years, Callum managed Newmarket Studios from 2015 – ’19. As studio manager and chief engineer, Callum has brought the studio an impressive roster of Australia’s top artists, including four time ARIA Award winner and Grammy nominee Courtney Barnett, as well as ARIA nominated duo Big Scary.

Prior to taking over Newmarket, Callum mixed “Controller” (2013), the fourth studio album released by indie rock band British India, one of Australia’s most prolific touring bands which achieved Gold sales (35,000+) for the single – “I Can Make You Love Me” in November 2013.

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.

Callum has an Advanced Diploma in Music Industry (Technical Production) from RMIT, graduating in 2005.
