Steve Fitzmaurice is a mix engineer and producer based in London. He started as an assistant at the renowned Sarm studios where he worked his way up to becoming an engineer for, amongst others, Trevor Horn and Julian Mendhelson. After five years in such company and having worked with artists such as Pet Shop Boys, Tina Turner and Tasmin Archer Steve decided that it was time for a change. He spent the following two years working in New York, initially at the Hit Factory working on such records as Jodeci’s seminal ‘Diary Of A Mad Band’ and then becoming a freelance engineer.
As an established mixing engineer Steve has gone on to work with a very diverse group of artists who include U2, Depeche Mode, Ian Brown, Kylie Minogue and Craig David (see below for complete discography). Nominated for five grammy awards and winner of two (for his work with Seal and U2), a Brit award for Kate Nash’s ‘Made of Bricks’ debut and a host of chart –topping singles, Steve has enjoyed huge success over the last decade.
In 2014 Fitzmaurice mixed the singles ‘Money On My Mind’ and ‘Stay With Me’ for Sam Smith which, along with its parent album, was also mixed by Steve all reaching the top of the U.K charts. Fitzmaurice additionally produced the global smash single ‘Stay With Me’ which peaked at no.2 on the U.S.A Billboard singles chart and became one of the biggest selling singles in the U.K of 2014. This culminated in the win of Record of Year and Song of Year at the Grammy Awards.
Currently based at the Pierce Rooms in Hammersmith, often moving over to Black Box Studios in France for his recording sessions. Having a keen interest in photography, Steve has found himself increasingly being called on for photo shoots.
