An Overnight Low were at Garage Mahal Recording Studio over the weekend to lay down basic tracks for their next single. Believe it or not, that tiny drum kit that Paul Gauer played was really loud! Thanks to him, Chad Walls and Sam Anderson for their great playing and songwriting.

Happy Holidays!

I had the recent pleasure of mixing a cover of “Pet Sematary” by the Ramones, performed by Runtt Wah and his fur-suited compadres. The track was mastered at Pat Keane Mastering and I must say it CRUSHES.

An Overnight Low was at Garage Mahal Recording yesterday and we took an old school approach: they set up in a circle and recorded completely live - no fixes or overdubs. Just 2 acoustic guitars, bass, cajon and three part vocal harmonies. Great job, guys!

Don’t Try to Change the Band | Garage Mahal Recording

I never try to change an artist into something they are not.

Here’s what I don’t do at Garage Mahal Recording: try to change you or your music. Do I give you a best foot to put forward? Yes. Do I try to turn your music into something it isn’t? NO!

A giant of recording technology, Rupert Neve, has passed at 94. This is a tremendous loss for the recording community. He will be sorely missed.

Wimberley, TX (Feb. 13, 2021) – It is with great sadness that we announce that Rupert Neve, whose name is synonymous with quality audio recording equipment worldwide, has died.

Mix Blog Live: Memories of Bruce Swedien - Mixonline

Here’s an article written by my good friend Steve La Cerra about the late Bruce Swedien. One thing’s for sure: once all the engineers of Bruce’s generation are gone (even those still alive are probably retired) there won’t be equally great engineers to replace them. It’s now all one big race to somewhere between ok and pretty good.

Steve La Cerra recalls the human side of Bruce Swedien, how they met over a story about Neumann M49s and how he ended up at the mix console at the legendary engineer's studio in Connecticut.

Legendary Audio Engineer Bruce Swedien Dead at 86

In the world of recording, Bruce Swedien walked amongst the giants. He recorded and mixed countless artists, his most heard work probably being those classic Michael Jackson records. A friend of mine knew him and by all accounts he was a great guy. He passed yesterday, leaving us with a HUGE catalog of music to enjoy.

Prolific Rock And Metal Producer Martin Birch Dead At 71

This is tragic. Martin Birch recorded a laundry list of great albums, including Heaven and Hell by Black Sabbath, which I use as my primary reference mix in the studio. He will be sorely missed.

Martin Birch was at the helm of many great rock and heavy metal albums. He died early Sunday at the age of 71. Rest in Peace.

One of Portland Maine’s best live music venues, Port City Music Hall, has fallen victim to the corona virus and will be closing for good. Saw many good shows there: X, The Feelies, Henry Rollins, Eastern Spell, Ocean, The English Beat, and many others. It will be missed. I have fond memories of playing there myself. Here’s a photo of By Blood Alone playing there in happier times.
