Mark Dearnley, Music Producer / Mixer



Mark Dearnley has engineered, produced and mixed award-winning albums for many artists from AC/DC, Paul McCartney and Ozzy Osbourne to Motorhead, Marilyn Manson, Tom Petty (with a Chas n' Dave album thrown in for good measure).

Mark is based in California, where he has his own mixing studio.

Mark began his career as assistant engineer, working on sessions such as the Dave Clark Five & Uriah Heep at Lansdowne studios in Holland Park, London (a studio originally set up by Joe Meek). He previously worked as "tea-stirrer's apprentice's mate" at the studio, but when his limited tea-making ability was recognised, he was promoted.

Gerry Bron (Uriah Heep's manager/producer) asked Mark to join the team when he built the Roundhouse Studio (Chalk Farm, London). Mark worked at the Roundhouse for many years, as Studio Manager.

He has been actively freelancing for more years than he would care to remember, mixing many types of music for Wire, Vinyl, 8 track, Cassette, DAT, CD, Digital, MP3 (add latest format here.....)
