The Audio Engineering Society’s Fall Online 2021 Convention’s Technical Program is being held October 20 – 23, in addition to other AES Convention events going on throughout the Audio Engineering Month of October. This year’s Platinum Producers event will host GRAMMY®-winning artist and producer St. Vincent in a discussion with GRAMMY-winning producer and songwriter Julian Raymond on some of the inspirations and struggles that come with art and production, and on the intricacies and opportunities of working and sharing their craft with other producers and engineers in the industry.

Annie Clark made her recorded debut as St. Vincent in 2007 with Marry Me, leading to her quickly becoming regarded as one of the most innovative and fascinating presences in modern music. St. Vincent’s subsequent albums have met with critical acclaim and commercial success eclipsing that of its predecessor, including Actor (2009), Strange Mercy(2011), and her eponymously titled fourth album, which won the 2014 GRAMMY for Best Alternative Album, making her only the second female artist ever to win in that category. She is also known for working with a variety of top artists and producers, including her collaborative album with David Byrne, Love This Giant, and co-producing her album MASSEDUCTION with Jack Antonoff. In the Platinum Producers session, St. Vincent will delve into her past experiences and struggles, recounting moments that have helped shape her career and find her place in the world of popular music. Together, she and Raymond will offer insights and details on writing and producing and discuss in-depth details on a variety of St. Vincent recordings. Raymond, who currently holds the position of SVP of A&R at Big Machine John Varvatos Records, is known for developing a variety of new bands, as well as for his work as the executive producer and composer for the documentary Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, which garnered accolades and recognition including an Academy Award and a Best Country Song GRAMMY for the song “I’m Not Gonna Miss You,” recorded by Campbell.
