Jim Bonnefond

Senior Engineer, Producer

Video Editor: Andy Bowles

Hi, my name is Jim Bonnefond. I'm the senior engineer / producer at Mix Artist Studio. What I love about this place is the fact that it's cosy, it's comfortable, and it's extremely well-maintained. I never have a concern with equipment not working or downtime due to some kind of a failure. It's just a perfect place to work. The highlights of my career are working with Kool and the Gang, which I did six albums with them in the United States. When I came here in the mid 80s, I worked with the Cockroaches, they went on to become the Wiggles. After that, I worked with the band Savage Garden in the late 90s, and that was a great experience for me. When working with me, you can expect attention to detail, and my primary focus is to make sure that bands and artists feel comfortable, relaxed, so that they can perform to the best of their abilities. That includes things like getting headphone mixes right. And making sure that there's no unnecessary delays. To book a session with me, just click on the button below. I look forward to working with you. Thank you very much.
