Dom Monks is a familiar face at Real World Studios. He began his career here working as an assistant to Peter Gabriel’s engineer Dickie Chappell before moving to become a staff engineer in the studio. He later went freelance to work primarily with producer Ethan Johns (Laura Marling, Tom Jones, Kings of Leon) and still frequently returns to work at Real World, with his own projects and with Ethan.
