I recently built a recording studio at my house in upstate, NY.
Actually, it was an old tool shed/barn type space that I converted into a studio. I named it Bone Hollow after our street name, and It’s such a great place to work. I have recorded for quite a number of projects here so far including Pfarmers, Lonnie Holley, Day Of The Dead, Lisa Hannigan, Frightened Rabbit, Nelson Patton, as well as my own solo projects.

Contact me directly for any remote recording requests, scoring, arranging, etc… Or if you’d like to book the studio for your own project:

Love working in my cozy little studio in the woods
