Audio veteran Guy Gray returns to Sydney’s Studios 301

Experienced producer/engineer/mixer Guy Gray is back on Studios 301 Sydney’s roster having recently returned to Australia.

Gray has worked at numerous high-profile studios throughout North America and Asia in the past, including the Hit Factory in New York City and Schtung Music in Los Angeles/Singapore. He has also received several ARIA Award nominations, while his efforts in the film soundtrack sector have seen him win coveted Golden Horse and Golden Melody Awards in Asia.

His 30 years of experience in the industry includes time spent engineering scores, handling large orchestral recordings and surround mixing, as well as music production for successful film projects such as Young Einstein (Best Original Music Score – Australian Film Institute Awards), Return to Nim’s Island, Dance of the Dragon (winner of ten US film festival awards) and Seediq Bale: Warriors of the Rainbow (Best Original Score – Golden Horse Award, Best Original Soundtrack – Golden Melody Award).

He has also helped put together numerous advertising campaigns for the likes of Coca Cola, Chevrolet and Garuda Airlines.

After beginning his career at Studios 301 in the early ’80s, Gray went on to become a senior in-house recording and mix engineer for The Rolling Stones, Duran Duran, Bon Jovi, Joan Jett, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Kelly and many more. His engineering credits can be found on various multi-platinum selling records, including Midnight Oil’s Diesel & Dust and David Bowie’s Tin Machine II, as well as the official Australian Olympic team song You’re Not Alone in 1988.

"This is where it all started for me 30 odd years ago and it’s still my absolute favourite place to record. The staff and facilities at 301 Sydney are second to none and the results always speak for themselves," said Gray.

"We’re honoured to have him here," added studio manager Danielle Engen. "Guy is one of the most talented producers in Australia and a real legend here at 301. His international film experience coupled with an unrivaled ability to capture an orchestra makes him a huge asset for 301 going forward, and I’m delighted to be welcoming him back to the fold."
