Listen to some of what I’ve been up to lately-

Paperchaser Studio


Paperchaser studio…

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.

So reach out if you want to know more! Contact form below.

1913 Mehlin & Sons cabinet grand piano (it’s lovely)
