About Walker Barnes.
At a young age, Walker began playing the saxophone and his early experiences opened many doors into the music world. Since high school, he has played in several bands, and eventually toured the East Coast many weekends during his college career. At the College of Charleston, he majored in Arts Management with a focus in the Music Industry. Early in his college career he immersed himself in mixing and recording, but after hearing Vlado speak at a conference, he knew his passion was in mastering.
“Even at a young age I was always playing with the bass, treble, and fader knobs for every song to make sure it was perfect. I didn’t realize it then, but this was really just elementary mastering practice for me.”
Walker Barnes started at Vlado Meller Mastering 2 years ago as an intern, assisting with all mastering activities under the guidance of Vlado and Jeremy. During this time, he meticulously crafted his ear, skills, and own style which has led to working with artists and bands of all genres.
Walker’s understanding and love for all genres has made him a valuable part of the team. He respects each work that comes in as the artist’s own and brings exactly what they want out of each and every song.
