Beau McKee - Producing Engineer
Beau McKee was a founding member and Drummer of Internationally successful band “Closure in Moscow” whom were signed to Equal Vision Records with such bands on their roster as Refused, Circa Survive and Coheed & Cambria. Beau has travelled the world and has had many fortunate experiences, most recently session drumming for Artist Sky Ferreira on a short run Australian tour in 2014. He has also had the opportunity to work alongside several Top tier recording Engineers whilst abroad, enabling him to gain extensive industry knowledge and experience.
Beau has obsessively delved into Engineering, mixing and mastering projects which has gained him attention both nationally and internationally for his ears and production techniques. With the advent of boutique audio recording and niche sounds, Beau is comfortable recording a wide range of genres, consistently providing artists with an exceptional final product. With over a decade of musical experience up his sleeve, Beau has quickly become one of the most prominent engineer’s in today’s musical landscape.
Every band Beau works with will be given access to his distinctive production style and exclusive techniques, in addition to his state of the art high-end equipment, which includes a large choice of Neumann style Microphones and both Neve and Classic API Preamps. Beau will only settle for the best performances and takes, he works closely with his artists in order to get the very best sound for their recording.
Beau is based out of one Australia's finest establishments known as Oaklands Studios located in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Fully equipped with acoustically engineered rooms, Oaklands provide an optimised sound for recording. Beau is now also teaching Audio Production at Abbey Road Institute based in South Melbourne, Australia.
