A couple weeks ago we did some much needed maintenance on our Neve Console located in the Spirit Studio.

This bad boy has about 12 THOUSAND capacitors in it, so we like to do maintenance every 6 months or so to keep it running in top condition. 
If you liked this, keep your eyes peeled during the week of August 19th because this was just the appetizer. The main course will be much bigger 👀

#WeekendWaves is here! This week we’re featuring an eclectic mix of just about everything from our eclectic Jenni! “Hi, I’m Jenni! I move between different types of music a lot, but at the moment music is either my way of completely zoning out, or my way of getting super happy and belting out the words as I drive. Every song in here makes me feel good, and isn’t that the point?! Hope you enjoy it ☺️” Go to our ‘Spotify’ highlight reel to check out Jenni’s playlist, as well as to see all of our previous playlists. Happy weekend everybody ✌🏻 #playlist #music #eclectic #spotify #40in2020 #weekend #friday #weekendwaves

From hanging around @skfoodiefriday helping with live sound, to being an artist liaison and stage manager at this year’s @kendalcalling, Kelsey has come a long way since her days of wanting to study medicine. 
We sat down with Kelsey a few weeks ago to chat about her time with us at Spirit, feminism in the industry, and her exciting plans for the rest of 2019!
