Abbey Road Institute is proud and excited to announce that multi platinum awarded, Aria & Golden Guitar nominated producer, mixer and engineer Jimi Maroudas will be joining us on our Producer Panel at our upcoming Open Day on August 26th!

A multi-instrumentalist from childhood, Jimi’s skills on the guitar, bass, drums, singing and songwriting helped lay the foundation for his emergence as one of Australia’s premiere producers. Starting his career at the world-renowned Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne, Maroudas had the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the world’s top producers including Grammy award winners David Bianco (Mick Jagger), Adam Kaspar (Nirvana), and Mark Wallis (U2).

To date Maroudas has amassed a solid discography, peppered with multi-platinum, award winning artists. Several albums he has worked on, including The Living End’s State of Emergency, Pete Murray’s See the Sun and Eskimo Joe’s Inshalla have reached #1 on the Australian Charts. Jimi’s contribution to Eskimo Joe’s Inshalla scored him an ARIA Award nomination for Engineer of the Year in 2009. Jimi also produced the single Cameo Lover, delivering Kimbra the 2011 ARIA Award for Best Female Artist and winning the prestigious Vanda & Young Songwriting competition. Maroudas has also appeared on backing vocals in You Am I’s Deliverance album and played guitar on Olivia Newton John’s Duets record.

Jimi will join Abbey Road Institute alumni Alex Braithewaite and Oakland Studio’s Beau McKee on our Producer Panel on the 26th of August discussing:

What are the most important attributes a young producer needs to generate work?
How did you go about establishing your personal brand and reputation in the industry?

How would you judge the state of the Australian Music Industry today?
What role will Producers play in the digital online space that the Industry is rushing towards?
