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!
