Had a nice afternoon with the wildly talented Matt Greco today, Jim gave us a demo of this lovely AMEK we’re standing in front of. Such a great studio!
Jose made a wonderful record, tonight he played a bit for us, in the swimming pool he recorded it in. I love being friends with artists.
Adam Beam and I spent the day at our new home, Long Play Recording, getting the vibe of the different rooms for drum tracking. We were both delighted and impressed. Looking forward to making some records here soon. Thanks to Jim Hage and Luis for all the help and patience. #recording #drums
Scout was real brave at the vet today. #ratterrier
A good time was had by all at Clear Creek distillery party tonight! @clearcreekdistillery
Very cool concert/chat with @invisiblebirdband at @revival_drum_shop today, thanks for always having great events fellows! #jazz #avantgarde #instrumentalmusic
Well how do you clean your peanut butter jar?
Jon Lakey did a nice interview with Brud including interstitial upright bass he composed. #recording #uprightbass
BIG EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT! I’m feeling really grateful about the studio I will be working at for the next year. It’s called Long Play Recording, and the owner, Jim Hage, pictured here next to the mighty AMEK Galileo, has been so welcoming to me and my ridiculous collection of vintage mics, keyboards, ect. I can’t wait to show you the space, so reach out and we’ll schedule a visit. The studio was previously Flora Recording and Playback. The studio was designed by Derek Trost and every room sounds great. #recording #recording studio
George is getting good fast!
Really happy to spend my last day at B-Side with my friends, Norman. We made a really great rock song. @normansongs
A few years back I produced a record for the wonderful @fairbanksmusic at RRG in LA, they made a stunning video for it, go watch! Link in bio Fairbanks bio.
Zander made this dope meter bridge top for my Trident! #trident80b

V happy with the new lenses in my vintage prescription glasses, don’t judge me too harshly if I never take them off, K? #mywifehasradinsurance
Head over to @goodwitchmusic and check out our new single, Shake you loose. Rose sang this vocal in the control room with me, and it has SO much energy. #newmusic #rockandroll
Well, you're in your little room and you're working on something good But if it's really good, you're gonna need a bigger room And when you're in the bigger room, you might not know what to do You might have to think of how you got started sitting in your little room @the_whitestripes
An absolute pleasure producing Jody Glenham’s new batch of songs, with her wonderful Dreamers band, and @catpictures slaying in the engineers seat. These lovely pics by @lindsaycats #recordingstudio #recording
A very nice ELAM 251, it beat a vintage U67 on @summerwitch ‘s voice. Yes it did. Nice job Telefunken USA. @telefunken_mics #tubemic
At Monarch Studios in Vancouver BC today producing a new batch of songs for Jody Glenham today, the talented @catpictures at the helm. @summerwitch @monarchstudios #recording

Bri took this pic of Sadie at Sauvie Island beach today. I’ll be at Sauvie a lot from now on, it feels like home.

What a pleasure it’s been producing the new The Get Ahead LP, great songs make it easy. 📷: @portlandrecordingphotos
Having a nice summer.
Played some upright bass today for the record Knate and I are working hard to finish. #pedalsteelandvibraphone
Here it is friends, new music, the first I’ve created in years, so much love to Adam Beam @mossneck for being such an amazing collaborator, he played drums and most of the keyboards on our new record. Thanks also to @knatec for our sweet artwork and several great guitar leads on the new record. #krautrock
Playing the pedal steel for the Wheel at the studio. #darthvader
Sadie hates mondays. #plotthound
Knate Carter took this picture, I was busy casting a spell on the pedal steel. I can’t wait to share this record with you!
Current quiver. #fenderbassVI #gibsonSG #gibsonES335 #fenderTelecaster
I sure love this man. I can’t wait to share the truly artistic music we’ve made this month. #vibraphone #pedalsteelguitar
Put together a workbench today out of recycled parts from the Rebuilding center. Owning a home built in 1906 means there are always projects. All my early lessons about being a good man were passed down to me while the men in my life worked at benches like this. #upcycling #nontoxicmasculinity
Proud as heck of Jose.
Five years ago my pal Will made his first solo record with me after years of being in the wonderful band, Brothers and Sisters. Thanks for trusting me with your art buddy! @brotherwill @zanderschloss @jonobrienrecording
From the moment @coolhairlive and I lugged her into his Bronco near LAX and pushed her into my garage/studio I could tell I had a great piano. The ‘Boudoir’ piano was made in Ohio in 1914. I had her re-strung and added a tack-hammer curtain. You can hear @domphenom employing that curtain here. I have a feeling that without this piano I would not have the career I do today. It is loudly featured on Gorilla Manor by Local Natives, she’s right there at the top of Airplanes, their first hit. I shed a few tears as she was hauled out of the studio today by the amazingly generous @modcottpianos She has a poisoned pin block and can’t hold tune any longer. I hope some day I’ll find 6K in a shoe or something, but until then, she’ll sit in a dusty warehouse, quietly holding memories of amazing musicians that have teased miracles of music from her. I will miss her every day. RIP 1914-2018
Hound dog heaven.
@funkyjuju Too Kind.
The right way to play a Telecaster. #fender #telecaster #recording #enthusiasm
Evan and Brette made me a coffee mug with my Parson name on it! I love it. #GramCrackerParson
Found an old photo of my band The Idaho Falls, this would’ve been 2011 or so at Spaceland, now the Satellite. Some good folks in this shot, only one I still see on a regular basis. Guess who. #tbt #theidahofalls #countryrock
Who puts a banjo on their knee? That’s where the whisky goes. #portlandisawesome
Going for Calexico meets Marc Ribot here. #recording @nixstix18
Avocado banjo for the win.
Happiest birthday to this badass. @highlandkites #bestfriends
Today I recorded Ike the spike from the new Twin Peaks. He’s a sick drummer. #twinpeaks
Oh hi! I’m just casually hanging out with my British mixing board, flag, and Epiphone Casino to let you know that I’ll be playing with the Parson Red Heads on New Year’s Eve, we’ll be covering What’s the story morning glory? in it’s entirety at the White Eagle. Come bury Oasis with us. #oasis #nye
I like to mix fast. #recording #trident80B
I can write a string arrangement for you, Bizzare Star Strings can play it. @bizarrestarstrings @kathleensieck #recording #strings

If you told me I’d be recording a 6 piece psychedelic funk band a few years ago at one of the best studios in PNW I would’ve laughed. I’m not laughing today, I’m just chair-dancing and enjoying the mild contact high. @cosmicbutter #cosmicbutter #funkmusic #recording
Trust me, you want these women on your record. @bizarrestarstrings
Mike Post is my favorite person to make records with. There isn’t a title that does justice to his contributions to my work, so maybe we’ll just go with Lombardi as his new title. #recording #studiomaster
Kyleen is very sweetly transcribing my string arrangements today.
Playing the old pedal steel at the Old Church tonight with the Old Parson Redheads.
Chris Bindloss, fingerpicking monster. @cbindloss
So happy I’m still rolling deep in this crew.
❤️ I'm so happy I followed these people north. ❤️ 📷: @katieannfpb , also ❤️

So.... who wants to start a psychedelic surf band with me?
This is how I want to remember California.

Today's office. Playing some pedal steel remotely for Australian crooner Mike McCarthy. Thanks for the hookup Skew! #pedalsteelguitar #recording
I don't talk about it much, but I am an accomplished jaw harpist. #themoreyouknow #canwestillbefriends
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
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 #brothersforever
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.
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
Last night of The Evan Way Experience at Al's Den. Hitting the studio Thursday. #1stResidency
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.
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
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
