New projects!

 

Happy to report that I have two bands I'm now working with in the newly renovated studio.  The Wendy Clark Band is from Denver, CO and we're almost done tracking all songs.   My old friend from NY, Chris Coward, is the bass player and made the whole thing happen.   Wild Faith is a Boulder-based band and we are also almost done with all tracking.  Another old friend from NY brokered this relationship with Wild Faith.   Both bands are full of talent and have been a pleasure to work with.  

I'm still working through and calibrating changes to my work flow with the new setup.   Everything is working VERY well and sounding VERY good.  The SSL Matrix2 is the centerpiece to the new studio and really is providing me with all of the options I've always imagined having.

More decisions made!

 

I've staged the new gear and have made decisions on new furniture for the control room.  I hope to have it all up and running by mid April.  So far, I'm really liking the choices I made and look forward to creating a lot of music throughout the next decade and beyond.

New gear being staged

 
Well, the bulk of the new gear has arrived and I'm staging it all in a separate room as I have a recording and mix project underway for my company in my main control room. I've assembled a completely stand-alone system that doesn't interrupt anything in the current control room. Once that project is completed, I will move the existing gear out of the control room and move the new gear in. In the meantime, I'm building a customized piece of furniture for the new console. Targeting mid April for everything to be up and running. Bring on the projects!

Made some decisions

 
I finally figured out the way forward for the studio from a technical perspective. With the help of what we looked at and demoed while we were at NAMM, plus help from my retailer, and help from one of the manufacturers directly, the upgrade project is under way. I'll keep the rest under wraps for now, but will share more in the coming months for anyone interested.

NAMM follow up - Studio upgrade/update!!

 
Marie and I enjoyed NAMM as usual and I made it around to see MOST of the things I wanted to. There are a couple of exceptions which just causes more work for me know trying to get to additional product details and get questions answered. With any luck, I'll be updating the control room and I'm pretty excited about the possibilities. It will truly remain a 'hybrid' studio environment blending together my cherished outboard gear with the latest and greatest in the DAW. Really looking to get back to tracking and mixing more with the option to do it the old way, the new way or a cool combination of both worlds. Stay tuned!

HNY & NAMM 2017

 
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here we go again! Looking forward to seeing old friends at NAMM next week. Also looking to update two major facets of my studio so, this year, NAMM will mean some serious decision making and purchasing of new gear from my retailer afterwards!

Spring 2016

 
Several projects under way after my back surgery this year. Working with a couple of new artists as well as some old friends and my company band, Kings of the Phone Age.

Sandi Siegel

 
Just wrapped up production for my friend Sandi Siegel. I engineered it and played some keys too. Always fun to record harmonium, tabla, finger cymbals, vocals and guitar.

Writers block....

 
Finally think my writers block may be gone. Recording some new ideas to see what sticks. Collaborating with friend Chris Smith.

Whisky a Go Go

 
Played a cool gig with my company band. Iconic venue.

Really pleased with the new rooms

 
I'm finally up and running and did some tracking the other day. Things are sounding great. A combination of careful planning (10%) and a lot of luck (90%) and the rooms sound really good. Better than any of my previous spaces.

Studio construction

 
The new room is nearing completion. Hope to be completely back online by November 1!

New studio construction

 
Beginning studio construction in September after I return from the Fortune Battle of the Corporate Bands.

Headed to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum to perform as one of 8 finalist bands in the competition.

2014 Fortune Magazine/R&R Hall of Fame Battle of the Corporate Bands

 
Fun project with my work friends. Made it through to the regional playoffs. 16 bands remaining. 8 will come out of the regionals and will play in Cleveland at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Sept.

Looking forward to an interesting 2014

 
Some interesting projects under way. 2014 is looking to be a more musical year than 2013. Looking forward to that! No more details for now.

2013 has been a good year

 
Managed to do a couple of cool private music projects this year. One of my goals is to do more in 2014 of course. Looking forward to Winter NAMM in January as always.

Settled in the Boulder, CO area

 
We're finally settled into our new home in the Boulder, CO area. The project studio is up and running and I'm taking on a very limited number of projects.
