Recording In the studio

I’ve been working in studios for a long time now.  It seems that I always started out as a songwriter and then moved on to doing sessions as a session player.  I then started contracting sessions as well as doing the arranging and orchestrations.  I got involved in engineering and producing projects.  I worked in many of the best studios in Los Angeles including the Record Plant, Sound City, United Western, Sunset Sound, Devonshire, etc.  I got a record deal with Patrick Bolen on RCA.  We had a band called Keeper.  We recorded at Bob Gaudio’s studio in Hollywood. I built my first studio in Los Angeles.  I called it Purple Mountain.  It had a large control room, two mid-sized iso rooms, a guest lounge and a full bath.  It was basically an analog studio.  I had a MX80 2 inch 24 track analog recorder and a 64 input Allen and Heath Saber recording console along with some pretty cool hardware analog processing gear.  I had a decent mic collection too.  My clients consisted of indie artists, and composing/recording music for film/TV/Video.   I also worked on an original project with John Welch called Shake. On most of the projects, I composed the music as well as played, contracted musicians, engineered, produced.  I also started working on my original project that I finished at my Tennessee studio.  That became my first released CD under my name called Reflections, Reflexiones.

I moved to Tennessee in the mid nineties on a recommendation from a good friend that was busy building his studio.  I started building my studio immediately after arriving in Tennessee.  I did not have a life other that building my second studio for six months.  When I finished, I had a hybrid analog and digital studio.  When I moved, I built a new studio that was designed by my friend and expert, Jim Haydon  It’s called the Rock Quarry.  I have been involved in many projects including my second CD, Rumors have it and my new album, BrunCode7 As Is.  Some of the clients I worked with include Rick Springfield, Mike Rosen, Building G, Arvo Nuvo, Jim Gibson, Sitel, Scene Three, Patty Russo, Lampwick, Randy Withrow, Dwayna Litz, Mad For Mannequins, Peter Moon, Tony Camus, Sarah Olson, Debra Lyn, Luci Lampe, Ronn Price, Patrick Bolen, Devin Payne, Steve Gartner, Rio Pose, Elena Garcia, Vik Chandler and Katy Seale.
