Location Recording

As co-producer and engineer for The Mug & Brush Sessions, I regularly record music in a barber shop. There is nothing like a good live performance without overdubs, auto-tune and other editing. Not to mention the casual atmosphere that takes the pressure off musicians.

Here’s how it works… you find a room to record that sounds pretty good. I bring my gear and we have a recording session. Simple as that.

Contact me if you have questions about set-up, rates, etc. Video crew available upon request for additional fees.
