I bought my first black faced ADAT back in the early 90’s and set up shop in my basement. Having just finished my studies at the Hartford Conservatory with Dave Santoro, I was busy teaching and playing and would record just for friends and people I wanted to work with. I taught at The National Guitar Workshop and wrote 3 bass books for Alfred Publishing. I played on a bunch of sessions work and released 3 solo albums.
Over the years I upgraded from the Adats and the midi verb, to Pro tools and a bunch of great gear, (You can see some of the gear in the about page or on your studio tour…) In 2013 I decided the time was right to come out of the basement and build a studio. I enlisted my carpenter brother and we went to work designing a the space I always wanted. We now have a 16×14 control room with 12 foot ceilings, and a 20×16 live room that also has 12 foot ceilings. The control room also opens to an additional 14×25 live room. We are set out in the woods of the Northwest Corner of CT so if you are looking for a busy city for your record, this is not it. If you want an escape to relax and make a great record, than you are in the right spot.
I have had the great pleasure of working on so many great albums over these last few years. We have really dialed the sound in and have created an A team of area players that have added to the overall vibe of the studio. On any given day you will find Glen Nelson here tracking and organ part, or Jay Roberts laying down a killer backing vocal. Ben Dean, Pete Adams, Steve Peck, Jeff Chen… I am blessed with some talented friends.
I recently added Julia Autumn Ford as an assistant engineer and videographer. Since then we have worked on a bunch of great records and have really upped our video game. We look forward to helping you make your next masterpiece.
