Senior Mastering Engineer
Brett began his career in 1989 as a recording engineer working with many influential Canadian artists and producers including
Gowan, Kim Mitchell, and Rick Emmett, Juno winning producer Pierre Bazinet (Luba, Sass Jordan, Boulevard), Roch Voisine, Aldo
Nova, Julie Masse, and now international phenomena 'Le Cirque Du Soleil'.
In 1991 Brett began working at Sounds Interchange in Toronto as the music specialist working with legendary artists such as
Anne Murray, Cassandra Vasik, Donnie Osmond (the Live Ent. cast album for "Joseph & The Technicolor Dream Coat"), and Rush
(seconding the mixing of the acclaimed "Counterparts" record). At Sounds, Brett gained invaluable post-production experience
on projects such as HBO's "Kids In The Hall," CBC's "The Tommy Hunter Show," and several IMAX productions. He also was blessed
to record the inimitable Martin Short's narrations for the Buena Vista motion picture "Captain Ron".
Brett carved a place for himself in the Canadian mastering scene in 1995. Now, after 10 years, Brett's mastering
discography includes the award-winning work of Tom Cochrane, Nickelback, Sarah Harmer, David Usher, Rita MacNeil,
The Rankins, Sean Paul (a 5.1 project), The Leslie Spit Tree-o, Amy Sky, Shirley Eikhard, Big Rude Jake, Tyler Stewart
(Barenaked Ladies), Ashley MacIsaac, and the up-and-coming Alexisonfire. Most recently, Brett was entrusted with the
prestigious task of remastering such musical legends as James Brown, Marvin Gaye, The Mamas and the Papas, Squeeze,
Englebert Humperdinck and John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers for Universal Music's 20th Century Masters and Gold collections.
Brett's understanding of physics and experience in sonic technology in the analog and digital realms, coupled with his
creative sensibility and musical talent, have earned him the respect of his peers and of the music industry. Having
respected each other's work for a long time, it was natural for Brett and Joćo to join forces in Joćos new
state-of-the-art facility to dominate the Canadian mastering scene. A self-described "colorist," Brett brings
his own vibe of intellectual conviviality to the JCMC team.
