(Ed. Note: In light of the recent passing of legendary Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick, we have republished our interview with Geoff, originally conducted around the release of his auto-biography, Here, There and Everywhere.)
From heavy-metal bangers to country twangers to EDM mix wizards, The Hub gets up close and personal with musicians from every significant genre. We ask probing questions about their gear, their inspiration, their strategies in carving out a distinctive sound and style. We skip the fluff in seeking their perspectives about what it takes to launch and sustain a life in music. You’ll find interviews with major recording and performing artists and bands as well as profiles of new, emerging acts. Count on The Hub’s exclusive Artist Interviews for the inspiration and gear intelligence you need to make your own musical aspirations a reality.
