Based in New York City, Mario J. McNulty is a Grammy Award-winning music producer, mixer, and engineer who’s worked with David Bowie, Prince, Nine Inch Nails, Willow Smith, Laurie Anderson, Harry Nilsson, Julian Lennon, Justin Tranter, and many other well-known artists.

At the 50th Grammy Awards ceremony, Mario J. McNulty won a Grammy in the Best Contemporary World Music category for Angelique Kidjo’s Djin Djin. Other Grammy-nominated albums are Homeland by Laurie Anderson and The Next Day by David Bowie.

Most recently, Mario mixed the new Willow Smith album entitled Lately I Feel Everything featuring the smash single, “Transparent Soul” feat. Travis Barker. He’s also co-produced and mixed Earl Slick’s album, Fist Full of Devils. Mario also mixed The Anchoress’ “The Art of Losing” single from her second album, The Art of Losing.

In 2018, Mario was asked to do something unprecedented. He completely re-produced, re-mixed, and re-recorded David Bowie’s Never Let Me Down album, a project that David personally sought Mario to do. At New York’s Electric Lady Studios, Mario enlisted drummer Sterling Campbell, guitarist Reeves Gabrels, guitarist David Torn and bassist Tim Lefebvre along with special guest Laurie Anderson.

Mario has also collaborated with Lou Reed, Anti-Flag, The Raveonettes, Manic Street Preachers, Kashmir, Siddhartha, Alejandro Escovedo, Semi-Precious Weapons, and Cynthia Erivo.

Mario’s workflow started in the analog domain and has evolved into mixing inside the digital audio workstation where his focus will be at NYU.
