InstituteSean started out in sound by producing his own electronic music in a home studio. He joined us in 1995 and was promoted to the mastering team just two years later.
Since coming to Abbey Road, Sean has won a Grammy for his contribution to the 2009 Beatles Remasters. He's worked with the music of some of the world's biggest names in pop, rock and jazz, including, Deep Purple, John Lennon, Ramones, Duke Ellington, Nina Simone, Tina Turner, The Sex Pistols and Public Image Limited.
Renowned rock and blues guitarist Gary Moore worked with Sean on some of his final recordings, and in 2014, Sean was approached directly by legendary prog rock band Rush who wanted him to remaster their entire back catalogue.
With a typical week encompassing anything from 1950s classical recordings to jazz box sets and 70s prog rock, Sean specialises in all-analogue vinyl cutting and is equally comfortable working with both traditional analogue and cutting-edge digital equipment to distil the best out of every project.
Believing that no two jobs are ever the same, Sean's open-minded approach gives him a broader take on how differing genres should sound. He welcomes client attended sessions which enable artists to get involved in the mastering process and ensure they're happy with the result.
