This week’s guest is Los Angeles based producer, engineer, and mixer Stephen Kaye. Stephen splits his time between film & TV projects and record projects. His credits include Fitz and the Tantrums, Lucius, Salem Ilese, Inara George, Hepcat, and Ziggy Marley. As well as movies and shows such as Bridesmaids, Green Book, Bridgerton, Dear White People, and most recently King Richard. We chat about the FOMO of balancing projects, reading music, and working with orchestral instruments in less than ideal circumstances.
