Joe Chiccarelli is one of the world’s leading engineers, mixers and producers. He has worked with many great artists and bands, such as The White Stripes, The Strokes, U2, Boy & Bear, Jason Mraz, My Morning Jacket, Morrissey, Elton John, Rufus Wainwright, U2, Beck, Etta James, Jamie Cullum, Tori Amos, and Alanis Morissette. To date, his impressive achievements have been recognized with ten Grammy Awards.
Chiccarelli is still based in Los Angeles, but works in studios across the US using a hybrid analogue-digital approach. Having been deeply steeped in the analogue multi-track and large format console recording techniques of the 1970s, Chiccarelli has adapted to and incorporated every new technological and musical development that has come out since. While he still adores working with analogue desks and outboard, the enormous flexibility offered by today’s DAWs and the fast-paced demands of the modern music world mean that a lot of his work is now done in the box.
