Born in Egypt, Heba Kadry grew up listening to early 90’s indie shoegaze records when ever she could get her hands on them. After graduating from The American University in Cairo, she got her start in audio by composing jingles at advertising agency J Walter Thompson in Cairo. After a 2 year stint in advertising, she moved to the US to study audio engineering at The Recording Workshop in Ohio.
Next, Heba moved to Houston, Texas, where she accepted a position at SugarHill Recording Studios as recording engineer and studio manager. After a few years in Texas, Heba moved to New York in 2007 to focus on mastering and worked in Manhattan for a number of years until moving to Brooklyn in 2013 where she is now located. She has worked with notable artists such as Slowdive, The Mars Volta, John Maus, Future Islands, Deerhunter, Neon Indian, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Alex G, Diamanda Galás, Lightning Bolt and Beach House.
In 2017, Heba was handpicked by Björk to mix her masterpiece LP "Utopia” in both Iceland and at her studio location in Brooklyn.
When Heba is not in the studio she is most likely spending way too much time obsessing about synth modulars and hanging out with her dog, Eno.
