I play guitar in the band Blondie. I also make noise with Blue Man Group. When not on stage, I spend my time in my studio as a producer, mixer, engineer, song-writer and session musician. I've played on many high profile commercials/jingles. Whatever your song needs, I can deliver it on every level.
I can record electric and acoustic guitars over any style of music. In addition to guitar, I am capable with most stringed instruments including Banjo, Mandolin, Lap Steel and Bass. I have played on recordings that cover many other styles of world music as well.
I have a good ear for being able to arrange guitar parts that work very well together in a song but can also be moved around individually to create breakdowns, intros and outros. With over 20 years experience recording music in a wide range of styles, I believe the quality of a note can sometimes be far superior to the quantity of notes.
When you contact me, we will go over the direction you'd like your song to take. In my experience, I find that being sent examples of what you are looking for can give quicker results, but it's not a necessity. Typically, I will double all parts so you can have options when mixing. I can also include a "dry" direct signal so you may have the option to re-amp in the future, if you wish.
Everything used in my recording process is professional quality, starting from my fingertips to your ears.
