DAMIAN ENEMARK

ENGINEER

Bass player for indie darlings “Hot Spoke” and talented songwriter in his own right, Junior Engineer Damian Enemark typifies Song Zu’s passion for music and sound. A JMC Academy graduate, Damian cut his post production teeth producing content for FBi Radio’s Documentary series “All the Best”.

Since joining the Song Zu team in March of 2012 Damian’s skills and passion for all things audio has only intensified, having been thrown into the deep end of a wide range of post-production projects from TVC’s and short films to television series and iPhone apps.

Damian continues to thrive in his position – at his standing desk – charming clients, and steadily wearing down the studio’s reserves of single malt whisky.
