The Bamboom room…

I work primarily in my small project studio. It’s my special creative space for songwriting and composing and I’ve recorded numerous projects including David Crosby’s Sky Trails and Croz albums in this room. I do a lot of overdubs for clients here as well as score films, TV and other media. It’s a great sounding space designed by my recording and mixing engineer, best pal and all around guru Dan Garcia; an acoustically treated and sometimes open-air :0 all redwood-construction craftsman structure built in 1927.

Some of the instruments I have on hand:

Baldwin 7’ Grand Piano, Fender Rhodes 1976 Suitcase 76, Roland System-8, MiniMoog with Kenton midi kit

Manley, Burl Audio, Antelope Audio outboard gear + other special acoustic instruments and microphones.

Reach out via the contact form below if you’d like to inquire about working with me here or having me do overdubs remotely for your project.
