Engineer, producer, and film music editor Fiona Cruickshank is MPG Awards 2022 Recording Engineer of the Year and Breakthrough Producer of the Year.

As skilled in mixing Oli Julian’s score for Sex Education as she is recording the orchestral elements of Paul Weller’s number one album On Sunset or engineering the Royal Opera House orchestra performing Prokofiev for Balletboyz, Fiona’s portfolio shows a breadth of creative approaches transcending film, music, and performance arts. Head here for the complete list of her works.

In 2021, Fiona recorded and mixed Keaton Henson’s score for the British drama and festival hit, Supernova, a continuation of her collaboration with Henson, whose 2019 album, Six Lethargies, she produced, recorded, and mixed.

Fiona was enlisted by PSN in their 2020 list of pioneering women in audio. Previously, in 2019, she hosted a mixing workshop for Spitfire Audio’s Tech Dissect, an event designed to celebrate women in music and music production.

Watch Fiona give her technical insight and explain why forging trust in the studio is essential, or find out about her work on Sex Education 2, Supernova, and The Grand Budapest Hotel on Headliner Radio’s Neve Sessions.
