MILESAGO - Producers & Engineers

JOHN FRENCH
Engineer & producer, 1970s - present

John French has been one of Australia's top producer-engineers since the 1970s. John first came to wider attention as the chief engineer at Melbourne's TCS Studios, which was set up as an 'in-house' recording and production facility to provide pre-recording facilities for performers at the GTV-9 television studio in Richmond. During studio down-time, he and colleague John Sayers began recording rock bands, and TCS soon ranked second only to Armstrong's as the studio of choice for rock recording in Melbourne.

John engineered or co-engineered many of the most important Australian rock recordings of the period including albums and singles for Company Caine, Spectrum, Russell Morris, Blackfeather, Madder Lake, The La De Das, The Dingoes and Skyhooks and the award-winning 'Morning Of The Earth' film soundtrack. He also engineered the live recordings for the seminal 1972 Sunbury rock festival.
