2022 Mercury Prize: Get Your Music Mastered by the Engineers Behind this Year’s Nominees

2022 Mercury Prize: get your music mastered by the engineers behind Yard Act and Jessie Buckley & Bernard Butler’s nominated albums

Two albums mastered at Abbey Road Studios are amongst the nominees for this year’s prestigious Mercury Prize.

The debut album from Yard Act and Jessie Buckley & Bernard Butler’s first outing were both mastered at Abbey Road by engineers from our world-leading mastering team.

Yard Act’s The Overload was mastered by Geoff Pesche while Jessie Buckley & Bernard Butler’s For All Our Days That Tear The Heart was mastered by Frank Arkwright.

Speaking about his work on The Overload – an album given five stars by Rolling Stone – Geoff said: “It’s a great record, mastered during the dark depths of lockdown. It brought a ray of sunshine into Mastering Room Five.

“All the processing was done in the analogue domain using the EMI TG console, Sontec 432 Parametric and a Prism Sound Stereo Compressor.

“The best mastering rooms don't have tons of gear. They have a selection of the best available keeping the signal path clean and short.”

Geoff and Frank are also part of our online mastering team, meaning their expertise and access to the best equipment are available to any musician anywhere in the world.
