Working Class Audio
About This Show
Working Class Audio (WCA) delves into the world behind recording professionals and goes way beyond the typical “What was it like to work with” or “What is the best eq to use on a kick drum” style questions typical of most interviews.
WCA gets up close and personal with audio professionals and asks the questions no one else asks. Business practices, mistakes, failures, equipment choices, financial advice, work life balance, workflow, and family life are topics that are all on the table.
WCA interviews a combination of known and unknown audio pros from the worlds music, film & TV and video games.

Working Class Audio Session #135 with Jacquire King!!! Jacquire King is known for his work with Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, James Bay, Modest Mouse, You Me At Six, Buddy Guy, Norah Jones, Of Monsters and Men, Josh Ritter, Cold War Kids, Punch Brothers, City and Colour, Moon Taxi, Robert Ellis, Amber Rubarth and Dawes. Our interview takes place at Jacquire's private studio outside of Nashville, Tennessee where he graciously invited me over to have a chat and discuss our common connection to the Bay Area. We discuss his time there coming up as someone trying to make his mark in the studio scene and the changes that eventually convinced him to move to Nashville. We follow that up with his transition into Nashville and the struggles that followed and of course the success that followed that. Jacquire is a thoughtful and low key person who shares his views on what inspires him and how he works to inspire others. I have to say this interview really inspired me and got me thinking about my own career and what I can do to move it forward. I hope you have the same experience. -Matt
