Gerry has recorded or produced tracks for many NYC area artists including legendary NYC rockers the Dictators, the Mutts, Rachel Butera (voice over pro), Zydeco Revelators, Rockstar Racecar, Black Water, Terry McCarthy, J4Jennifer, Jack Rio Trio, Dubious Pastry, Sexy Heroes, ALIEN SLAVES, Miss Lucy & Walker Blue & The Meltdowns.
Originally set up as the personal production studio for producer Gerry Griffin, the Temple of Tuneage is geared up to create big-budget quality productions in a relaxed and comfortable setting. The Temple is a “hybrid” studio, combining a collection of vintage analog equipment and a Pro Tools 12 digital workstation. The foundation of the Temple’s sound is its vintage British console, a vintage 16-channel Neve 5465 plus a nice collection of outboard gear and microphones. The addition of a UA Apollo 16 and Apollo x8 interfaces and all the amazing plug-ins designed for the UAD-2 system, gives the Temple a wonderful collection of vintage equipment emulations to make your recording project the best it can be!

Interview with Gerry Griffin
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Make the beginning of the song count, great intros will keep the listener listening.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: My productions range from rock, blues, reggae, singer/songwriter to voice over work as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I've been told that I'm easy to work with and have impressed a few clients with my editing skills. I work hard on being a good listener to both the clients and their music.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: As a performing and recording musician, I bring 40+ years of love and passion for great music to every session and production that I work on.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: We usually spend a day or two tracking after pre-production is complete. Overdubs are done over the next few days or weeks depending on the client's schedule. I edit and mix songs before the client comes into the studio to do the final mixes. I email mixes (MP3s) to the clients for review constantly so they can hear their music in their favorite listening environments.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio, the Temple of Tuneage is a “hybrid” studio, combining a collection of vintage analog & digital equipment plus a Pro Tools 12 digital workstation. The foundation of the Temple’s sound is its two vintage British consoles, a vintage 16-channel Neve 5465 and a 40-channel Soundcraft Series Two plus a nice collection of outboard gear (Eventide, Urie, dbx) and over 50 microphones. The addition of a UA Apollo 16 interface and all the amazing plug-ins designed for the UAD-2 system, gives the Temple a wonderful collection of vintage equipment emulations to make your recording project the best it can be!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Great sounding recordings and excellent musicians are always inspiring to me. One of my favorite and inspirational producers is George Martin. The 3 bass players who redefined the instrument and are a constant source of inspiration are James Jamerson, John Entwistle and Jaco Pastorius.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Tracking, overdubbing and mixing are all part of creating recordings for my clients. Very often my production suggestions are welcomed, appreciated and used.
