Listen to some of what I’ve been up to lately-
I have a small, private studio behind my house here in Los Angeles. It’s been a great place to remotely record overdubs on records for people all over the world. Studio time can be a real budget buster for most records these days, so this space allows me to still record things at a very high level, while keeping costs down. And I’ve made entire records here. Drums sound sneakily great in this room.
