In 2013, Gender Amplified interviewed Erin Tonkon, a budding music producer attending the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. She spoke eloquently about her passion for making music and her goals for her career.

Since that time, Erin has emerged to become one of the new faces in the world of rock music production. Shortly after our interview with her, she began working full time as an engineer and production assistant for legendary producer Tony Visconti.

Today her production credits are vast and varied. Some of the highlights in her discography include David Bowie’s ★ Blackstar and Esperanza Splalding’s latest offering Emily’s D+ Evolution.

 

One of the goals of Gender Amplified is to identify young talent that has the potential to reshape the production landscape of the music business. Erin’s trajectory and growth is a testament to that mission. We look forward to keeping up with Erin on her journey to the top and beyond!
