Come record in a custom-built 3000+ sqft. cabin in the remote mountains of Utah - all amenities included. If you can't make it, have a 15 year veteran of the industry record, mix and master whatever you need.

After years writing and producing with bands in Chicago, New York and LA, I decided I wanted to offer a studio experience outside of city life, where artists could retreat, relax and record without distraction. So I started a business with some partners, bought a cabin in Park City, and over time renovated it into a professional recording studio and B&B.

My music bonafides have landed me interviews with Vice and the Deli, ghostwriting jobs for artists on EMI, and even bylines on Pitchfork. Nonetheless, I'm less proud of my media resume than my songwriting and musicianship, and I highly suggest trusting your ears over a list of credentials for whosever service you finally choose.

I'd love if you came out here to record! The cabin has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, and my team handles all the food, transportation and outdoor fun (skiing in winter, hiking in summer). If you can't come, here is what I can do remotely:

- Synths (modular/analog/soft/vst)
- Guitars (electric/acoustic/classical/e-bass)
- Drums (kit/congas/djembe/buffalo)
- Strings (mandolin/ukulele/u-bass/banjo)
- Piano
- Flute
- Clarinet
- Violins (technically vsts but we use lifelike SWAM modeling w/ Linnstrument, samples on request)
- Vocals (pop/folk, male/female)
- Mix
- Master

Always willing to negotiate!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.
