New banjo day! 🪕🤎

I've been tooling around with a modified, extremely cheap guitar-banjo for twelve years, and for a long time now I've been considering making the jump to the real thing.

This Gold Tone is a thing of beauty and is everything I would ever want in a serious person's banjo.

Now to learn more than four chords on this thing... 😅

Huge congrats to Panther Revival on signing to Punkerton Records! ✊🏻

And if you want a sneak peek of the beautiful noise I helped them capture this summer, click this preview.

This song was an absolute blast to work on and there’s much more to come from those guys 🤘🏻

One of my audio production heroes, Jordan Valeriote (Silverstein, Emery, Neck Deep) recently used my song "Truth or Dare" for a mix challenge over on his YouTube channel.

If you need to know how life changing Jordan's coaching was for me, I'm literally wearing a shirt for his audio training program in my profile pic here.

New video on the channel!

I decided to compare the delays in the HX Stomp with my large, impressive delay pedal, and I’m honestly a little unsettled by how well the Stomp handled itself.

I picked up an HX Stomp recently, as an acoustic and bass rig primarily, but of course this is a flexible unit and soon I started to wonder: what else could ...

The newest addition to the studio: this absolutely lovely Vox AC15 Creamback.

I’ve been using amp modelers for a long time, and I sold the last of my guitar amps almost six years ago. To be honest, I expect to keep using the modelers plenty, but I found myself missing that real amp experience over this last year, and I’m delighted to have both options again.

The setup for shooting my Amp Modeler Shootout video. It only took an A/B splitter, a stereo DI box, two mute pedals, and four channels of my audio interface to route all this! 😅

New video on the channel today!

I got my hands on three different amp modelers (and one real amp) and put them through their paces.

This is a video I've been wanting to do for ages, and it also took a lot of planning and prep, so huge thanks to the friends who let me borrow things so I didn't go into debt trying this. 😂

I've been using the Strymon Iridium since it came out in 2019, and recently got my hands on an HX Stomp as well. So I thought I'd borrow a Universal Audio Ru...

It usually takes me a few days to record and mix an entire song for Loop Community. On Friday I decided to see if I could do it in just one session, start to finish. I shot some video to document the process. 😎

If you’re not familiar, Loop Community offers church multitracks for live performance. What that means for me as a producer there is that just by listening to a recording of the song, I have to try and pick out every one of the (in this case, about thirty) layers and then go record them myself. It’s like doing a cover song but on steroids.

Anyway I’m super happy with this one!

Getting organized for The Well. In my never-ending pursuit of making setup faster and more efficient, I decided to pick up packing cubes, write labels onto them with a fabric marker, and divvy up cables so each musician has exactly what they need. I love having a system 😎

Trying something new with the pedalboard. When I picked up this HX Stomp recently, it was never intended to go on the main board — I got it for acoustic, bass, mandolin, stuff like that. But I’m pretty impressed with the delays on it and I’m going to give it a trial period of living on here handling some effects. We’ll see how it goes!

I’ve been playing mandolin for seventeen years so I guess I’m not technically a ‘dummy’… but I picked up this book yesterday and have already learned a few things so I guess it was a good used-bookstore find.
