This Friday, July 14th, Gender Amplified will be premiering the first installment of a 3-part edition of Mix Sessions featuring producer, songwriter, and artist Georgia Anne Muldrow (also known by her stage name Ms. One). Gender Amplified had the chance to spend some time with Muldrow last October at her private studio in Las Vegas, Nevada where she and husband Dudley Perkins co-own and operate their record label SomeOthaShip Connect. Through her extensive catalog of music and collaborations with a wide range of artists such as Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper, Madlib, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), and Jason Moran, Muldrow has established herself as an influencer and undeniable force in music production.
Throughout the interview, Muldrow reminisces about her musical upbringing and being mentored by renowned producer and jazz musician John Barnes. She also discusses her creative process when focusing on the rhythmic aspects of a track and how she utilizes the vast parameters of compression, a tool most novice mix engineers and beatmakers find daunting when first introduced. But most importantly, Muldrow offers raw, honest advice for young women aspiring to become music producers and explains how motherhood has made her “more bold” in everything she does.
We don’t want to give too much away, so head on over to our YouTube channel this Friday and brace yourself… because Georgia Anne Muldrow is nothing but a delightful inspiration!
