Karrie Keyes, co-founder of SoundGirls.org and a veteran monitor engineer, joins the show in Episode 88 to talk about her transition from analog to digital and how she manages stage volume for Pearl Jam. She also discusses some of her roots with artists like Fugazi and Black Flag as well as more serious conversations on the “Exit Plan” — how to know when to retire or move on, and the tough choices this industry can bring with the grueling lifestyle of touring.

Beginning her career in live sound at the age of 18, Karrie has been the monitor engineer for Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder for 30 years. She also spent 10 years (1990-2000) as a monitor engineer for Red Hot Chili Peppers and has mixed a diverse list of additional artists.

The Signal To Noise podcast is sponsored by Audix and Allen & Heath.
