To celebrate International Women’s Day, PSNEurope has compiled a series of interviews with some of the most influential women working the pro audio today, in which they discuss their work and share some truly unique industry insights.

From artists and producers to mix engineers and sound designers, we’ve been speaking to a raft of prominent professionals from across the full spectrum of professional sound about their working methods, gear, audio preferences and their predictions for the future of the industry.

In our latest issue, we were granted exclusive interviews with 2019 MPG Awards Breakthrough Engineer of the Year Winner Dani Bennett Spragg and fellow nominee Rhiannon Mair, while Katie Tavini filled us in on the return of Red Bull Studios’ Normal Not Novelty events in her monthly PSNEurope column. We also spoke to US-based engineer and producer Kallie Marie about her illustrious career to date.

Plus, you can revisit award-winning engineer Olga Fitzroy's impassioned MPG Awards speech from last week here, in which she called for greater diversity and more collaboration across the industry.
