Best Sound Engineer

Ed Brooks

From Heart to The Head and the Heart, Ed Brooks has worked with so much of the Seattle music scene that he's damn near royalty in some circles. His recent fold comprises the Moondoggies, Eddie Spaghetti, Pearl Jam, and Fleet Foxes, while alums include REM, the B-52s, Death Cab for Cutie, and Mark Lanegan. Career-wise, he's outlived a lot of the acts he's worked with, and it seems that bands seek him out not only because his mixing talents lend a smooth and effortless quality to recordings, but because he just can't stop doing what he does best.
