Recording Studio

I love recording and love gear. I’ve been collecting pro audio gear for almost 10 years. I’ve bought and sold lots of weird and wonder stuff, but have now settled on what works for me. Everything in the list below has a purpose to match my needs.

When I’m not designing a logo or building a website, I pour my creative energy into recording my band The Blackwater Fever or my solo project endeavours, this gear just sits on the shelve unused. So while I don’t have the luxury of my own sound proof recording studio, I do have all the gear needed to record a full band with up to 16 – 24 channels of audio capture. Where is can happen for your band or recording project, is totally up to you! Your rehearsal space, an AirB&B, farm house, on top of a mountain… ūüėČ

Outside of engineering a recording a session I can also take on producer and mixing duties. Having played the major roll in writing, recording and mixing 4 full length albums for The Blackwater Fever and penned many more songs outside of that. I can help squeeze the most out of your arrangement and performance to take it past something good and into something great!

My home setup can also be handy place for overdub sessions. Book a large studio for your main tracking beds, then come over to mine to track vocals, layer guitars, add percussion etc.

Contact me today to discuss your needs and location ideas.
