About Zach

Smashed Lantern is owned and run by Zach Walker: a mix engineer, producer and musician with a keen ear for arrangement and song structure. 

Zach has a deep passion for art and believes creativity flows best in a safe, collaborative and constructively critical studio environment. 

He’s worked on a range of varied projects: tracking and recording bands, composing sound and music for video games and animation, live mixes and session recording. 

As an experienced vocalist, he is uniquely equipped to coach and mentor vocalists as they work through the recording process. 

He is also a committed guitarist and frontman and has played in several bands, most notably his shoegaze and art-rock project NYANZA. 

Zach’s mixes are forward and modern sounding, often with textural flourishes and creative production work that give them a unique edge.
