I’ve had the great pleasure to engineer a session with Australian guitar wizard and singer/songwriter Alex Hughes at Kingsize Soundlabs in Los Angeles, CA. The tracks will be released on his upcoming EP titled “The Valley of Sean Penn sessions”. Big thanks to AEA Ribbon Mics and A-Designs Audio for supporting the session with some exquisite gear.

LA-based band Yard of Blondes has just released their EP called ‘Murderology’ on Hi Desert Lo-Fi records. The EP has already garnered great reviews and the first single has been played on Kerrang! Radio in the UK. Yard of Blondes were recently signed to Transcend Music Group for management representation. The EP was recorded and mixed by Julian David at Billy Graziadei’s Firewater Studios (Biohazard, Slipknot, Sick Of It All) in Los Angeles. Click here to preview the EP on iTunes.
In December 2012, I was invited to co-engineer the recording session of the song ‘Fire’ by Night Panther for Shaking Through, a documentary series about the birth of a song by Weathervane Music in Philadelphia. It was a truly gratifying experience supported by a great team. The session was produced by Brian McTear (Mazarin, The Bigger Lovers), co-engineered by Jonathan Low (The National, Sharon Van Etten, Local Natives), and directed by Peter English.
I recently did a short voice-over session for a public service announcement with the award-winning actress Viola Davis (Traffic, Solaris, Doubt, The Help). The session was commissioned by Star Trak Studios in Rhode Island.
