Phillip Dempster

Phillip Dempster is the after-hours mastering engineer at Matthew Gray Mastering.

Hailing from the coast of northern New South Wales, he grew up on a balanced diet of 90s radio hits, cassette mixtapes and classic vinyl from the 50s through to the 80s. As a teenager he had a guitar in one hand and a 4-track recorder in the other, writing songs and recording demos for friends. After high school Phillip moved to Brisbane where he completed a Bachelor of Music majoring in production at Queensland University of Technology. During this time he was writing and playing in various bands around Brisbane while honing his recording and mixing skills in the university’s studios.

His passion for music and music production grew over the following years, diversifying across live sound engineering, EDM production, short film scoring, podcast editing and organising several small music festivals. The past decade saw Phillip relocate to Melbourne and later Stockholm; however in 2019 he returned to Australia. After interning with Matthew Gray to further his knowledge and experience in the craft of mastering under Matthew’s guidance, in 2020 Phillip was appointed to the position of after-hours mastering engineer.

As an engineer, Phillip’s strength lies in his ability to understand the artist’s perspective; his specific background allows for this while still ensuring that all the technical aspects of mastering are met. He recognises the client’s vision and is able to realise that sonically in such a way that it translates across all environments.

Phillip welcomes and encourages attended sessions; this fosters communication, something we value highly at Matthew Gray Mastering.
