Levels Audio adds Emmy-winning talent

HOLLYWOOD — Five-time Emmy Award-winning re-recording mixer Josh Morton has joined audio post and sound design studio Levels Audio (levelsaudio.com). Morton’s many television credits include the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards and Emmy Awards broadcasts, as well as the Kennedy Center Honors, Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, and numerous music and comedy specials. His most recent Emmy win came in 2022 for the CBS special Adele: One Night Only.

“I’ve admired Josh’s work for years and have hoped that one day we’d join forces,” says Levels Audio founder and CEO, Brian Riordan. “He has a tremendous following and is a great fit for our tight-knit team. We’re excited to have him and look forward to doing a lot of great work together.”

Morton has been a top mixer in television for more than 20 years. He was attracted to Levels Audio by its reputation, technical excellence and creative environment. 

“This facility is extremely proficient at delivering high-quality television,” he notes. “The mixers are amazing — true ProTools geniuses. I am thrilled to be working alongside them.”

Morton began his career as a mixer with Sound Design Corporation in 2003, earning his first credit on the comedy special Richard Pryor: I Ain’t Dead Yet. He developed an affinity for variety, comedy, music and awards shows, tallying hundreds of credits. He has been part of the Grammy Awards sound team for more than a decade, and has a similarly long-standing role with other major awards broadcasts. Along with Adele: One Night Only, his Emmy wins came for Aretha: A Grammy Celebration for the Queen of Soul, The 59th Annual Grammy Awards and The 84th Annual Academy Awards. He has four additional Emmy nominations.

“I love working on variety television, where shows are audience-based,” says the mixer. “I enjoy filling the room with sound.”
