Description

This episode features Karrie Keyes, the executive director of SoundGirls, a non-profit organization that supports the professional sound industry with a mission of "empowering the next generation of women in audio." She’s also been the monitor engineer for Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder for over 25 years.

Karrie has been working as a live sound engineer since the 1980s, after Dave Rat taught her to roll a mic cable at a Black Flag concert.

I sat down together with Karrie and Soundgirls Zoë James, Vanessa Silberman and Gil Eva Craig at the 2019 AES convention to discuss the challenges facing women in professional audio and some strategies for surviving out there. 

I’d like to thank ProSoundWeb, Rabunshire Media and iZotope’s RX software for helping make this episode possible. Now let’s hear from Karrie Keyes and the Soundgirls at the Javits Center in New York for the 2019 AES Convention.
