VIDS PEOPLES!!!!

“You don’t need a fancy recording studio, and some hotshot record label to make great music anymore…we never did!”

      I was 10 years old when I started recording music.  I didn’t even have a microphone.  I used two cheap digital cameras I found at home: one to record the first musical part, then the other to record another musical part layered over.  I’d do this multiple times till I’ve recorded a full band: quite the evil genius.

    My whole world changed when I got my first laptop with GarageBand '09.  I just kept on recording, spending hours in my basement writing dummy pop songs and recording them with a USB mic.  I spent years of natural trial and error, learning how to produce a song: how to get the best out of low budget equipment.  Even now that I go to school for music production with all these great recourses, I find that recording music with Lo-Fi equipment has a pretty cool vibe to it.  So to this day, I still spend hours in my basement, writing slightly less dummy pop songs and recording them, and they’re sounding better than ever.

As you may have guessed already, I’m a proud New Yorker.  My beginnings in the arts came from local Brooklyn community theaters and small music shops, where I met people who shared the same interests and passions as me.  Now, I’m calling on local musicians in the Brooklyn area to shoot me an email, and message me on Facebook.  I’ll invite you over to Bath Beach Records (my personal home recording studio), where we can write a song, record a demo, plan a performance, it’s up to you.  Most producers will charge you a fortune for this kind of service.  I will negotiate an affordable price based on the nature of the project.  I’m looking to give back to my community, by giving into it. 

Need live music for an upcoming special event?  I'm an experienced performer that's opened for a number of top-act headliners, as well as played nightly casual bar sets with a wide range of musical genres.  Checkout my Youtube channel to find previous performances and see for yourself.  Then contact me if you are interested.
