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
So many pedals at B-Side!
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. 🐲🐲🐲
Well hello custom made bare bones telecaster! Thanks Mike. @roadhouse_guitar_works #customguitar #guitar #telecaster #lindyfralin

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
Ralph Carney, badass.
Beyond excited. You won't know this song. #recording
Sunday f'ing night. @josemedeles @1939ensemble #drums
Not your average bear. #drums #recording @mossneck @knatec @prjct_xprnc
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.
When it's slow at 3Tracks... #spacecowboy

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
High fashion hound dog. #SadiePotatos #plotthoundoftheday
Portland is full of old friends. #norfolkandwestern
New favorite instrument. #RolandSH101 #boardsofcanada #catalinbread #cvkeyboardgiveaway @customvintagekeys
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
I could tell the minute Jason picked up my Harmony acoustic guitar that it belonged in his hands. It was nice knowing you Harmony! #recording
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
Knate and I are putting some finishing touches on the 1939 record today at their opulent jamspace. #recording
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
Jose is killing it with the baby bass drum. #1939ensemble #recording #drums
I will push you. You won't always like it, but you'll improve. #recordingstudio #recording
Dear 19 year old college drop-out Raymond; don't sweat it kid, someday you'll make it big. #recording #lifegoals #myfirstbusinesscard
Alex of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros at the board. He and his band are tracking a song at @b_side_recording with me today. Video clip on the B-Side IG profile. #recording #edwardsharpeandthemagneticzeros
You win dude, best tape loop ever!
When making a home recording it's important not to get hung up on sonic limitations, just focus on creativity, and if all you have is a U67 to record your vintage Guild acoustic guitar with, just make the best of it. #recording #u67 #neumann #acousticguitar #parsonredheads
You might SAY you like chicken, but do you really? #parsonfarms
Brette Marie is one of my favorite people, it's just gravy that she's a siiiiick drummer. #newParsonsRecord @theparsonredheads @samfowlesmusic
#tbt That time when @jonobrienrecording @elliotglass and I recorded Charles 'screamin' eagle' Bradley at RRG for @aquariumdrunkard #soulmusic #recording
Found this massive 26 Leedy bass drum today. 1945? Can't wait for Jose @revival_drum_shop to give her a test-drive this summer. #leedy #vintagedrum #recording
Larry Crane helped us dial in our tape deck today, it sounds really solid and warm. #recording #tapedeck
Spent a few hours mixing my buddy Sam's record last night, we went for a 10 CC vibe on these background vocals. #recording #trident80B #10CC @samfowlesmusic
Spent a magical night at Flora Recording & Playback listening to the new case/lang/veirs record. #recording #case/lang/veirs
On of my favorite dummers ever, Brette Marie. #drummer #ladydrummer @theparsonredheads
Flute + plate reverb = wild bliss. @b_side_recording #ralphcarney
Prettiest CC drums ever! @ccdrumco Adam of Norman and I are sound-checking at the White Eagle. Should be a wild night.
