“I’m constantly striving to make everything the best as it can be. I swear by the words “Don’t settle!” If it involves editing between takes or re-recording certain lines to make sure you’ve got the very best performance, do whatever it takes”
“Simon Cohen is the finest vocal engineer in Australia with no exception.”
Todd Wagstaff – Artist Manager
“Having worked with Simon Cohen on a number of projects (Starley/ Odd Mob), there is a clear process that I feel is a smart approach when finishing off a record that needs to be tailored specifically for radio. Simon’s skills in bringing life into the mix are something that shows with the huge catalogue of music and experience he has in the studio. Simon is a true professional and a perfectionist, not only for himself but for the client!”
Archie – A&R Manager, Central Station Records / Tinted Records
“Simon has this incredible ability to bring out the best in me during the recording process and bring out the specific vision I was after in the mix and my vocals. He fully immerses himself into the project to understand my stylistic tones when mixing like the engineer freak that he is! I was mostly a producer/songwriter and was eager to test the waters of singing vocals properly for the first time with Simon. He made me feel so comfortable and confident in expressing myself. He’s also half-comedian half-engineer which makes sessions that much more fun.”
