I offer a variety of studio services, focusing on instrumental and vocal tracking, but also including editing, mixing, and mastering. My studio is small and designed mainly for jazz projects of a smaller scope, or singer-songwriters working with more limited budgets. I primarily work with live instrumentation. (I do not produce EDM or other sampled/synthesized musical media, but can provide excellent referrals for those kinds of services!) I have produced or engineered work for several artists including country artist Stephanie Quayle, soul-funk impresario Big Joe Hurt, jazz vocalist Dheepa Chari, emerging artists such as singer-songwriters Adam Joe Cole and Matt Westerman, and many others.
My studio equipment is designed for "in the box" recordings, one room with full acoustic treatment for maximum room sound with minimal slap-back. A single computer is capable of running up to three work stations, including screens, monitors, headphones, and control devices. The room also features a gorgeous, 1925 Steinway baby grand piano, completely refurbished.
