Face To Face – Hold Fast Acoustic Record

The brand new Face To Face acoustic record, titled “Hold Fast” will be released July 27th, 2018!! I had the honor of Co-Producing and Mixing the record, but also got to throw in my share of percussion as well as a backup vocal on a song. An incredible project to be involved with, the record will be released by Fat Wreck Chords. Stoked!!

The World Over Full Length!

Back in May, Los Angeles rock/metal band The World Over flew up to Beach Road to work on a sweet new full length with me. No release date as of yet has been announced, but the album is phenooooomenal and I’m so proud of it!! The band was here back in 2016 to have me produce their Mountains EP, which has done incredibly well the past few years. I also mastered their Ventifact record last summer, which was acoustic versions of all the songs off Mountains. The band is currently on Warped Tour playing their hearts out! Check them out if you can!

Leapwing Audio

I’m super stoked to announce my partnership with Leapwing Audio! These guys are relatively new to the audio software world but are making some phenomenal tools that are changing my mastering and mixing workflow immensely. Very excited to see what they come up with next!

Beach Road Studios Recording and Production Workshops

Hey all!! Our June recording workshop was a MASSIVE success!! We had a staggering 11 students in our little country studio learning their little hearts out!! We have one more workshop booked in 2018 at Beach Road for Sept 1/2 – half the slots are already filled, so if you’re interested in attending please contact me now!!

Updated Discography and Now Accepting Crytpocurrency!!!

Hey all!! I promise an actual update on new records and projects (although Instagram and FB are your best best for finding the latest up to date musical endeavours we’re working on here), but we DID manage to update the Discography to reflect some of the missing records from the past 2.5 years…! ūüėČ And, ALSO…we can now accept Bitcoin or Ether as forms of payment for making records!! Are you a nerd as well as a musician who’s been mining BTC or ETH for the past few years? Well, send ‘er on over and let’s rock already aye!?!

Stuff and Things!

Been an insanely busy summer and fall here at the studio. We made some great records and singles with Anthems and Ashes, The Ashgrove, Horwood, KINK, A Ghost Named Joe, Howl Said The Wolves, Sadukii, Artificial Dissemination, Slouch, Cashed In Kings and Stuck Out Here – some that are still in the process of mixing!!! Met a really great band called The World Over in LA fronted by the granddaughter of legendary guitar builder Ernie Ball and we created an insane 5 song EP together that is now available everywhere, punk rock veterans Face To Face were in working on a new song with me for an upcoming tribute compilation, and I co-wrote a killer song with legendary rapper DMX featuring some beautiful vocals by the talented Morgan Lander of Kittie! Work continues on the new b.d. Gottfried album¬†as the new Charrlonmane full length, along with a new Studio B room here at Beach Road to provide some awesome lower rates for clients when needing to do overdubs and vocals. A Scully 1″ 8 track machine graced the control room this fall as well and we’re busy rebuilding and wiring it in – this is pretty much the holy grail of analog recording, and each input not only features line inputs, but MIC PREAMPS as well by way of vintage UTC transformers!!! I’ll be back at NAMM this year and will be working on a new single with The World Over and KINK in LA, as well as a few top secret as-of-yet unannounced projects. Happy travels friends!!


Beach Road Studios 10 Year Anniversary!!

It’s incredible…it’s now been a decade since we first poured the concrete foundation for our vibey, country getaway studio!! We’re stoked to announce Beach Road also now has its own Wikipedia page – check it out here!

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful years and music, on to the next decade!


Spring 2016 Update!

We’ve had a busy spring here in L.A. and at Beach Road! Besides 2 incredible back to back recording workshops, preproduction and mixes/mastering at our space in Silverlake, Beach Road has been busy with a number of sessions the past month. The summer is packed with several amazing bands from all over North America – stoked for everyone to hear what we’re working on! \m/


Silverlake Studios!

Mini Beach Road is now rockin’ in LA!! We have a new space in sunny California that I’ll be working out of – writing, producing and mixing records! I’ll be dividing my time between the beautiful shores of Lake Huron at Beach Road and the new Silverlake Studios in LA. Our low Canadian dollar makes it very attractive for American labels and bands to head up north to make a record, and my aim is to connect with some amazing talent down here. Let’s make some music!! \m/ \m/

Remo Factory Tour

Took an amazing tour of the Remo drum head factory in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California this past week. Clearly the best drum heads in the world for a reason, and I’ve seen why today. ¬†We’ve been Remo fans for a long time here at Beach Road!!

Axes & Anchors Cruise

Attended the awesome Axes & Anchors cruise this past week!  From Miami to Key West to The Bahamas and back, I got to meet and enjoy some legendary artists like Zakk Wylde, Tracii Guns, Gilby Clarke, Yngwie Malmsteen, Marty Friedman, Joe Stump, Thousand Foot Krutch, Breaking Benjamin, Bumblefoot, Alex Skolnick, Rudy Sarzo, Kathy Rhoads and so many more!!


Los Angeles

I’m stoked to announce that I’ll be hanging out in The City of the Angels for the unforeseeable future! ¬†I’ll be producing, engineering and mixing for a number of clients in both the L.A. area as well as back home at Beach Road on the beautiful shores of Lake Huron. ¬†Lots of exciting things to come so stay tuned!



Siegfried Meier Drums!

This is a project that’s been in the works for quite some time now‚Ķand I’m stoked to announce it now! I’m releasing a number of elite drum sample libraries and MIDI groove packs with a featured set of killer drummers in some of the most historic and legendary recording studios of the world. It’s going be a history lesson as much as anything else! From the outboard gear, consoles and mics used at each legendary studio, to the people each individual drummer has worked with, this is gonna be a hit with anyone that loves history and technology. I’ll have all the details posted on my website www.siegfriedmeier.com when the time is right. For now we’re hard at work on creating something really cool!!

NAMM 2016!

NAMM 2016 was incredible!! ¬†So many great hangs, gear and fun! ¬†We acquired several new endorsements with Vintech Audio, Beyerdynamic, Emotiva Audio and several more to be announced soon, and can’t wait to use some of their gear on upcoming records. ¬†And now, to sleep off the leg and foot pain of walking for 4 days straight…until next year!!

Summer 2015

It’s been a crazy summer of 2015 so far!! Finished UK’s Not Tonight and The Headaches album, the brand new Tallan M.D. record, an awesome new single with Sound Glyphics, a killer EP with Toronto’s Russian Roulette (mastered by the great Troy Glessner), a great new track with a new band called PIN and an awesome EP with a new punk rock band called 30 Helens that will be going to vinyl in the fall. We finished an EP with a new band called Static Prevails that’s just headed to mix now, and the new Painted Faces full length is nearly done. Mastered some fantastic albums including a great EP for my good friend Julian and his new project No Good Crooks, and another great single for L.A.’s The World Over that’s been doing really well with nearly 15000 views! The well known psychic medium Kelly L. Elson was in with me to produce a 2 disc album, and we did a very cool vinyl transfer project for a friend utilizing a lacquer master disc from 1952, and recording vocals along with the original recording. b.d. Gottfried’s new record Motion Fever is out and doing really well on radio in Europe, and we’ve already started work on a new album along with remixing the old catalogue. Managed to squeeze in a number of electronics projects including building a pair of our BR500 mic preamps for a client, building a few new 500 series mic preamps and a Studer 169 500 series eq (with 5 more on the way, 2 for the mastering room!) and wiring up a ton of snakes for misc gear we have sitting here at the studio. A vintage Fostex R8, a Roberts 770x, a 2nd Tascam TSR8 and MSR24 and an early 1960’s AGS stereo tube tape machine are now at the studio making sweet music again, a vintage mid 90’s Mesa Dual rec is now available here, along with a number of other misc vintage and “garbage” pieces of outboard gear. A number of old amps have been repaired and are now here for use – a Trace Elliot and a vintage 70’s Garnet are the most exciting! Kittie was back to film the studio portions of their new documentary, and we even did a “classic tracks” type segment going over the last 2 records multitracks that I produced with them. We have new records with the talented Serena Rutledge, Anthem For Today, Jailer’s Daughter and Punishment slated to start in the next few weeks, and another Beach Road Studio Workshop booked for the end of August!! Sleep…it’s for the weak!! Until next time!
