I’ve had a blast the past few months engineering at Manhattan Beach Recording Studios on 37th st in Manhattan – nearly every day. I can’t share any specific projects yet, but it’s been great to work with some very talented major label artists and musicians. But for now, you can pick me out “hard at work” in this music video of Bashli in studio A.
Party band The Barnstorm released their 2018 promo video that I recorded on location and mixed. Check it out here:
I was in some unique locations with my mobile rig lately. Recording B Boys at Rough Trade NYC for a limited vinyl release (only 500!) with the Brooklyn Brewery Presents series, Iris Lune at H0l0 in Ridgewood for a live performance video, and Sirintip at the YouTube Space NYC for another live performance video. All of these acts are super exciting and deserve a listen. And of course, live recordings at Pete’s Candy Store continue, with avant-guarde duo, Wit and Daniel, rock group A Crystal O, and Pete’s new monthly series Crypto Conversations which is released as a podcast here.
I’ve stepped away from recording audiobooks to devote more of my time recording music – but some more books I recorded were awarded Audiofile Magazine’s earphones award! The Mere Wife by Maria Dahvana Headley, read by Susan Bennett won for September 2018. It’s a modern take on Beowulf, and frankly, one of the best books I’ve ever read.
