Recently, The Lodge's Chief Mastering Engineer Emily Lazar was invited to speak on a panel organized by the Women’s Initiative Network at Sony Music and moderated by Trevor Jerideau (VP of A&R for J Records). Along with Lazar, the panel included leading ladies in the music industry: audio engineer/producer Ann Minicelli (Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey) and Battery Mastering's General Manager Donna Kloepfer. Emily’s passion for music has been the driving force behind her success, enabling her to create some of the most distinctive sounding albums released in recent years (Vampire Weekend, Depeche Mode, The Shins, Armin van Buuren and David Bowie). Most recently, Emily and co-mastering engineer Joe LaPorta received an Album Of The Year Grammy nomination for mastering Foo Fighters' critically acclaimed album "Wasting Light".
Here is a great picture of the panel. Picture from left to right: Ann Minicielli, Emily Lazar & Donna Kloepfer.
