Vanessa Silberman – Producer, Recording Engineer, Label Owner and Artist

Go for it and don’t be afraid! Take risks and try stuff that is completely different. My advice in general is that music is the thing that connects us whether young or old. Take the time to make whatever you are working on the best it can be, while staying on deadline. Race or gender doesn’t determine skill. I worked around men for years and still do but sexism never ever really affected me. I have been supported and encouraged by all men I have worked with. I also tour around the US (3 times this year) and have run into at least 15 female sound engineers. We’re out there.
