Michael Gray, our studio manager and lead engineer, joins Paul Tyler and Aaron Burnham as we expand both studios. Michelle and her team of engineers also work at her state of the art recording studio in Alexander Valley called Pine Mountain Studio. Located in Northern California, Michelle and her band enjoy the benefits of getting away from it all and focusing solely on the music. It’s a recipe for more amazing music.
The renowned acoustician and recording studio designer Wes Lachot, has flown out from Chapel Hill, North Carolina and spent time with Michelle, Ricky Fataar and their engineer Michael Gray, and has drawn up plans for full re-designs of HSR and Pine Mountain Studio. This is very exciting for all of the many people who will be recording music at both studios. Check out Wes’s website www.weslachot.com to see the spectacular work he has done. With over twenty years experience as a recording engineer/producer, Wes is bringing us his wide range of practical knowledge and insight. The control rooms he designs and builds are known for their musically accurate acoustics, and are used for critical mixing by well-known producers and mixers. Jeff Kerr Construction from Marin County is working with Wes’s team to get these studios up and running. HSR in San Francisco has been taken down to the studs and will be completed mid November just in time for rehearsals for Michelle’s annual Meals on Wheels SF benefit concert in December and Pine Mountain Studio will be completely gutted, expanded and done by our August recording session. New equipment has been purchased and we will be ready to roll soon…Stay tuned.
