Natalie is the newest addition to our Mastering team
Natalie joined Metropolis in 2015; quickly developing an interest in mastering after meeting and shadowing Tony Cousins. Fascinated by the intricacy and care of the process, from there she began her mastering journey. Since then, Natalie has been trained by some of Europe’s finest mastering engineers, honing her skills and gaining the faith of her colleagues and clients alike.
Coming from a background of mixing and as a self-producing artist, Natalie is both intuitive and technically minded. She inherently understands the methods and tools artists use to craft, edit and present their music; and is able to advise how they can get their mixes right before she masters them. Natalie makes herself accessible to her clients and believes collaboration is how to achieve a master that isn’t clinical and remains true to the artist’s feel and vision.
Natalie also has a particular interest and extensive experience assisting live, direct to vinyl cuts. Her assistant mastering credit highlights for this include: Lewis Capaldi, Jimmy Eat World, Shura, Portico Quartet, The Vaccines and Poppy Ajudha.
Above all, Natalie’s focus and passion is helping musical artists bring their songs to the world at the highest level of sonic excellence, whilst maintaining the fullness, clarity of detail and creative integrity of the artist’s expression and intent.
