This week’s episode of My Forever Studio, in partnership with Audient, is all about the wonderful Brendan Cox. He’s an Aussie producer, songwriter and mixer who’s worked with Imogen Heap, Jadu Heart, LVRA, Patrick Wolf and more.

Having originated from Brisbane, the accomplished producer relinquished his Australian heritage in favor of the grit of London, immersing himself wholly in the world of production, songwriting, and mixing. From gracing the stage alongside Imogen Heap as her skilled guitarist to honing his expertise in the studio under the mentorship of Guy Sigsworth, Brendan’s journey has taken an awe-inspiring narrative.

The video for this podcast will be released in due course, but for now, listen to the episode below:

He’s currently stationed at Tileyard Studios, where we film this week’s episode. At this studio complex with artists coming and going, he’s helped amplify the sounds of amazing artists with his productions and writing suggestions.

This episode delves deep into what makes a flawless studio vibe, the relentless pursuit of the perfect microphone, and Brendan’s enduring connection with a cherished musical instrument. We learn about a lovely Nashville-hailing ribbon microphone, the Stager Stereo SR-2N, and most importantly, the studio sofa talk gets heated.

For those first time viewers of My Forever Studio, this is a podcast – sometimes record, sometimes filmed – where artists, producers, and engineers are asked to imagine their ultimate creative space in any location in the universe. We ask these talented music heads ‘what would your dream forever studio look like?’ So far, we’ve discovered Dot Major’s London space, Amon Tobin’s floating studio, VNCCII’s AI-integrated space-based future utopia, Jordan Rudess’ Hawaiian mountain-top studio and Callum Marinho’s countryside setup.

Despite the freedom to dream big, there are limitations for the Forever Studio. Participants must choose their possessions carefully, as they are restricted to a limited number of items in the studio. It’s all fun and games until someone mentions bundles. There will be NO BUNDLES!
