Songwriters' Studio Services/Robert Heft Owner

Songwriters' Studio Services/Robert Heft Owner Affordable professional recording services, live on-site mobile recording, guitar/bass lessons, guitar/bass setup and some repairs. I founded Songwriters' Studio Services in 1984 with the concept of providing songwriters an affordable and creative studio to develop and record quality demos, jingles, and independent albums.

Being a songwriter, and being involved with many other prolific writers, I felt there was a need in the community for local musicians to have a home base to hone their craft. Over the many years in existence, the studio has produced many recordings of new songs, audition tapes, karaoke tracks, radio spots, and independent album productions. Songwriters' Studio Services has also been an educational

Robert from Songwriters' Studio Services here. This Yamaha acoustic took a very unfortunate spill off of a guitar stand and broke its neck. The resulting tension from the strings pulled the whole split neck off and the fingerboard. Amazingly the fingerboard is hardly damaged and the plan at this point as you can see is to piece it back together bit by bit and fill in cracks as well as can be done. Hoping for the best here. Ultimately there will be sanding done to smooth out the repair and if the client wants a refinish it will go over to the amazing Pat Wilkins

Re-mastering the first album I did several years ago with my friend Justin Honsinger. This thing is vibrant and ALIVE. Covid gave me a year to sit and hone some skills in the studio and I'm excited as all get-out. Justin's album is phenomenal and still stands up today. Word has it another is on the way. I feel this album has some of my best work on it and all of the performances across the board are excellent. Contact Justin to arrange for a copy pending a new release.

For those music artists out there that have CDs available, it helps to support them by purchasing their music, especially at this time when we are not able to work/perform. I invite all those that have available CDs or music downloads to post them here along with pricing and links. You can IM them directly to purchase their music.

Here's mine: $12.00 each plus $2.50 shipping and handling. All of my music is also available for download on most music sites. Thank you for your support.

Howdy folks,

With all of the gig cancellations going on, this is a great time to get your guitars and basses in for set-ups and adjustments. Low prices and quick turnaround.

If you want to get into the studio this week or next, my schedule is currently open. I would say until the end of the month I can do 24/7.

Stay safe out there gang.

Well gang, the client has now unfriended me and blocked me. DO NOT HAVE ANY DEALINGS WITH KENT BEERY. He comes across as a nice guy and I did some tracks for him and in good faith sent him an mp3 mix. He has decided not to pay for the session. Background check reveals a history of fraud. It's a shame that people like this force you to lose trust in the business world and have to change your policies. Very disappointed in that.

I just recorded and mixed the introduction and reprise to Ggreg Snyder's musical Gehenna using 8 tracks of overdubbed Les Pauls and 2 tracks of fuzzed Wilkins basses. Absolutely Epic and a ton of fun.

Doing some studio upgrades this week. Bass traps in the control room, additional soundproofing and weather stripping. Need to control the low end in the studio better for mixing. Should improve things for sure.

My favorite place in the whole world, session coming up today with producer Ggreg Snyder. Tomorrow with Hugh Cline and Brett Coker. Thursday with David Dot Hale. The talent coming through my doors is off the hook. Also last night Cory Brandon Clay and the Twains were here rehearsing for Sunday's show at Surfside in Venice. Thank you to Diane Freeman who for some reason puts up with my insanity. Without her none of this would be possible. ❤

Very excited to share a sneak peek from the new record "Too Little Jesus, Too Much Sax". This one is called 8 Bullets featuring Bobby Hurricane Spencer. An homage to the great blaxploitation pictures of the late '70's. Some of you have seen me on stage performing my unforgettable climactic Shakespearean death scene. As our gift to you, for a limited time you can download this track for free. Thanks for digging what we do. Want to thank the great Bobby the Hurricane Spencer on sax, Lucky Lloyd and Willie Ray Brundidge on lead guitar and bass for giving me this groove, David Odom on drums, Tadg Galleran on clavinet. Special special special thanks to the amazing Joel Diamond for his arrangment, piano, organ and alto sax. If you don't know Joel, he is my secret weapon and a true genius. Thanks Songwriters' Studio Services/Robert Heft Owner excellent engineering. Michael Carey Sick ass mix man. We've been at it together for thirty years. I love you like a brother. Jasmine Hale, I love you. I promise, one of these days you will get your love song. https://www.reverbnation.com/q/7fgb4y
