A longtime friend and partner has now joined the PARMA team. We’re excited to welcome GRAMMY-winning producer Brad Michel on as our Senior Producer, North America.
Brad’s 30+ years of professional recording includes involvement in hundreds of productions. His GRAMMY wins and nominations include Johnson: Considering Matthew Shepard (2016, nomination), The Sacred Spirit of Russia (2014, win), Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 23 & 24 (2010, win), Lang, David: The Little Match Girl Passion (2009, win), and Pärt: Da Pacem (2006, win). Brad’s recordings have also earned him praise from the press, including the BBC Music Magazine Award for Technical Excellence in Recording, multiple Gramophone Awards, Gramophone Critics Choice Awards, Classic FM Record of the Year, and more.
Brad has worked on PARMA projects since 2017 and is highly regarded by composers and session performers alike.
