An interview with Juno-nominated engineer & producer Gus van Go
Juno-nominated producer, engineer, and songwriter Gus van Go has fingerprints on work by the likes of Sam Roberts Band, Arkells, Wintersleep, Priestess, and dozens more. This year, he notched another Juno nod for his work on tracks by Whitehorse and Terra Lightfoot, and Mike got him on the phone shortly after the announcement.
In this candid interview, Gus talks about his unique approach to studio work, shares some cool stories from the past few years, and delves into the experiences of making the records that earned him his latest Juno nomination and will surely keep him in high demand among the best-known recording artists from Canada and beyond.
