Spotlight: Alex Balanko – This Way Up

by Andre Gonsalves

This is a new series we’re starting where we feature some of the amazing artists we’ve worked with.

One of my favorite albums I’ve worked on over the last year is by this fine fellow named Alex Balanko. He not only wrote, recorded and produced all his songs, he also mixed them. When he sent them to me for mastering I was blown away. I still love this album and he’s told me he’s working on another one. So without further ado, check out his 7 track EP This Way Up below.


Here’s some visuals of Alex doing the acoustic version of “This Time Around”.



Andre is the head audio engineer at ADG Mastering. When he's not hunched over a mixing console he's hanging out with his son and daughter age 6 and 8.
