Long Beach, WA
Working part time at a guitar shop is becoming a real problem. Keith put this beautiful Bigsby and some new tuners on this Japanese lawsuit era Les Paul and I think it might be my new favorite thing. 😍🔥
That thing where Chris Benson comes over and plays with your Maestro Rhythm N Sound. @bensonamps #recording #maestro
As it turns out Arrica Rose and I have been friends a long time, and we're finally getting to make a record together with Dear County, a band she and Mark Lynn pour a lot of love into, and it shows. She has a truly original and wonderful voice, I hope you'll check them out. #recording #americana @dearcounty
Playing old Parsons songs in LA was a real trip down memory lane. Thanks for the good time Kevin! 📷: @kenoak
Got to work with my two favorite string players today at @moosecatrecording for the new @goodwitchmusic record.
Well I think I know what microphone I'll be using all day today at Moosecat recording to work on the Goodwitch overdubs. @moosecatrecording @goodwitchmusic @localnatives #reunion #imadethismic
Brother Moses and I take this picture whenever we work together. Hope you like the new record we just made. 📷: @jacobgruth
Roto Toms + Snareweight mutes + MXR Phaser = Game changer.
James Lockhart is one of the best singers I've ever had the honor to work with. Confident, capable, and easy going, every producer dreams of working with someone with talent like his. We rarely do more than four takes before I get goosebumps and his bandmates start celebrating in the control room. Thanks for trusting me with your gift dude.
For some reason Matthew brought a singing pocket calculator to record his rock band. That goofball.
New friend @nickdepartee took this deep focus pic while I played pedal steel guitar on a beautiful song by @realjoeymeador while @davelux guided the ship, producer-style. So many good moments on this record. #recording #pedalsteelguitar #emmonspedalsteel
Dumping tape experiments for Philistine Dream.
Good day of live tracking with Evan, Adam, and Alex for @evanthomasway 's next solo effort. Pallet = Slowcore + 70's N.Young. Love it. @mossneck @alexchapmanlife #recording #slowdive #slowcore #neilyoungandcrazyhorse
I love it when my favorite band plays three blocks from my house. #krautrock #avantgarde @1939ensemble @knatec @josemedeles
Last night of The Evan Way Experience at Al's Den. Hitting the studio Thursday.
Mel Brown is my favorite musician here in town, and he let me take a pic while telling us a story about how played with the Beatles.
BFF's, makin' hits!
Such a special night. 📷: @kellyjohorton
I live in gratitude that I can share such a wonderful studio with these nice kids from PCC, seen here taking turns singing into a U67 and RCA 77 patched through our plate reverb. #communityfirst
On tour with Norfolk & Western in 2002, we stopped by Wavelab in Tucson to cut a track. This is Rachel and I 'listening' really hard.
Best record ever. @luna_nyc @deanwareham @_seaneden_ @britta_phillips
Always good. #bffs
I've been playing guitar on a lot of records for folks lately, and dragging this Ben Sherman bag full of goodies around with me. While cleaning it out today I realized I'd made a collage. #neatfreak
Dragon on Dragon. Describes the @pacificlatitudes sessions perfectly. 🐲🐲🐲

So my fav PDX band, 1939 Ensemble just CRUSHED the opening spot for Tortoise tonight. @1939ensemble
I love playing bass and guitar for my friend Marissa. Her band Highland Kites is quite excellent. @highlandkites
Dropped off the new 1939 Ensemble covers EP off for mastering.
New PRJCT XPRNC song in the making. @morfbeats @mossneck @gusberry #krautrock @prjct_xprnc
I buy lunch for the first person to tell me why I love this picture.
Spending some time with these sexy beasts today. #lapsteel #pedalsteel #pedalsteelguitar #emmons #rickenbacker

Beyond excited. You won't know this song. #recording
Sunday f'ing night. @josemedeles @1939ensemble #drums

Recording Knate playing a nice set of Musser vibes tonight at 39 HQ with my Neumann CMV563 and a Grace 101 mic preamp. #recording #vibraphone
Always fun watching Keith breathe new life into an instrument. #stjohns #guitarshop #luthier
Had such a good time playing guitar for Evan Way last night at Mississippi Studios, my favorite venue in town. #blessup video still: @huntsmanmusic Thanks Ben!
I find a lot of comfort in the very local, palpable change I can make. I am teaching this rad 9 year old neighbor how to play chess and the ukulele. I can't fix the world, but I can make a real contribution on this level.
Had a blast playing the Landmark Saloon with Afterlife Revival, several hundred dollars were raised for Standing Rock! Excellent photo by: @connorebb
I said to Bri when we moved here, I just want to be of service to our new home town. As it turns out that entails recording as usual, but quite unexpectedly Portland also wants me as a dj, a guitar store employee, a mentor for a brilliant young neighbor, a chefs assistant and a session musician. I am following my muse in any wild direction she points and I cry, laugh, prosper and struggle in equal proportions. #tao
Copperphone, meet morphbeats! For the win! #recording @placidaudio @morfbeats @danielcharleshunt @lenoresings
Cold out here.

Making music with Adam today. @mossneck #theprojectexperience #rolandsh101 Thanks gus for engineering. @gusberry
Loving the fluff today, glad I don't have any pressing plans though, this city is at a stand still. #websterpdx #winterwonderland
What a wonderful session today with Moorea Masa & The Mood at The Map Room. Having a room full of people with such abundant talent and focus is humbling. My heart is full. Big thanks to Josh Powell, a master of audio craft and an amazing host. #recording
Dang Allegra, y'all make some pretty nice drums. #recording

Good friends new and old tonight at Norfolk & Western practice. Come see the show on Wed. At Alberta Rose Theater.
Having a good time working with Askew this week on Haley Johnsen's record. #recording
What's that Adam? Oh, a bass drum beater you hand-crafted from a baseball bat? That's pretty chill I guess. #talentedfriends
Mr @novostiofficial has a good eye. This was the 9-piece Parson Redheads. Long may she roll. I coulda used some @wonk_barrell at my side, otherwise perfect.
I ❤️ my station. #pedalsteel #acousticguitar #theremini
Jose is kind of the glue that binds the PDX music scene. #recording
Big band vibes. @theparsonredheads
Not an easy kit to record, but SO pretty. #recording #vintagedrums
Mike Moore of Dead Aunt Thema's Studio was nice enough to show me around his wonderful studio today. Check out that SSL! #recordingstudio
Luke + Farfisa + Echoplex. Always a good time. #recording #echoplex #farfisa @northernyouth @customvintagekeys #cvkeyboardgiveaway
TGIF with my best friend. #sorryMatt #sorryRose
Not just my favorite band in Portland, but easily the most impressive live show I've seen all year! @1939ensemble #livemusic #bestofportland #avantgarde #indiejazz
I never used this 1954 WFL snare very much, but with Jeff Kirsch And Jose Medeles on the case it sounds like it should, and will be seeing a lot of use in the near future! #vintagedrums #recording #craftsman
Input list, check. Coffee, check. Sweet garage-soul band, check. I love my job. #recording
Adam Beam, animal. @mossneck #drums #recording
Jeff Saltzman is typing a coded love letter to the past. #recording #guitaraphone @jeff_saltzman
Most likely just another day at the office for Bill Putnam at United Recording Studio, but this snapshot is like school for those of us obsessed with sounds from the golden era of recording. #recording #billputnam
Along with @petedirado , Larry Crane has been my teacher for a few decades now with his magazine Tape Op, his message board, and workshops like this where he listened to several peoples mixes and gave honest, insightful, and brutal feedback. Thanks Larry! #recording @jackpotrecording 📷 @Adingley
Old school. #recording #wfl #akgD20 #api312
Jeff Kirsch is doing some fine tuning to my 1950's WFL snare drum this week. #drums #recording
