As of this writing, Spiral Stairs is jetting in from balmy Mèrida, Mexico to put the finishing touches on his new Long Player. Once again, there's an all-star cast of musicians involved in Kelley Stoltz, triple threat Tim Regan, a guy from the Hold Steady, 2 dudes from Oranger, and probably a few more people I have lost track of. It's a banger!
Earlier this year I also produced and mixed the new record for Film School, one of my all-time favorite bands to work with. It's called Bright to Death and it comes out September 14.
Co-wrote and produced the girl group inspired album Birthday Girls with Angela Correa.
Recorded and mixed a new song with Sam Marine
Produced the song LA Daughters (cool video) for PENINSULA, and mixed 2 more
Recorded some songs and mixed some more for Big Mother Gig
Mixed songs for Apex Manor's new album on Merge Records

Mastered Glen Parks new EP
Recent additions to the studio are a Fender Deluxe reverb, a pair of secret killer tube small condensers made by Chameleon Labs, and a fully refurbished ADR Compex
The mainstays are a completely refurbished EMT 140 plate reverb (the big one), to go with the late 60′s Universal Audio custom recording console featuring 1108 mic pres and 508 eq's, which, long ago, recorded Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith.
Music on the tv
In addition to producing and mixing, we have been busy on the music for TV and film front.
2 Birthday Girls songs have recently been used by the WB show Riverdale, and our work has been used in a trailer for Sony's The Interview, a Charles Schwab ad, Timberland ad, the ABC Family show Switch at Birth, and a theme song for History Channel's show God, Guns, and Automobiles, amongst others.
