New York, NY (December 10, 2003)–Sterling Sound president Murat Aktar announced on Monday that Leon Zervos has joined Sterling Sound as a senior mastering engineer. Zervos was most recently a senior mastering engineer at NYC’s Masterdisk.
Zervos began his career in 1982 at EMI Studios in Sydney, and by the late 1980’s, he had mastered worldwide hits for artists such as INXS, Crowded House and Midnight Oil. In 1993, Leon moved to NYC where he quickly became recognized as a top mastering engineer. His credits include records such as Aerosmith’s Nine Lives, Avril Lavigne’s Let Go, and *NSYNC’s *NSYNC. He has also mastered many surround projects including Alanis Morissette’s Feast On Scraps, Santana’s Supernatural and Shaman, and Willie Nelson’s Live In Amsterdam.
“Leon has that unique gift of great mastering engineers–the ability to intuit what a client wants to achieve sonically, and the talent and technical expertise to deliver it,” says Aktar. “He is also extremely versatile, with Platinum selling credits in rock, R&B, hip hop, dance, pop, orchestral and Latin.”
“The name Sterling Sound is synonymous with mastering excellence,” says Zervos, who will be available for mastering sessions beginning January 15th. “When it comes to studios, innovative audio developments and work philosophies, Sterling Sound is not only state of the art but state of the future.”
