Although I do have modern digital recording equipment, my goal is to produce music the good old fashioned way, where the music comes first; as live and direct as possible.

                                                                                               -   I’m  an analog guy in a digital world

If you are interested in having me produce and/or record your project please contact me for details.

I am always happy to discuss pre-production needs and concerns.

“Recording at ToolShed SoundLab was an exceptionally easy and satisfying experience, and after four decades of making records, that's really saying something!  

The room itself is a great-sounding space, high ceilings and with many instruments hanging on the walls.

George got great sounds on all of our many different acoustic instruments, the best we've had for a long, long time; taking the time to really listen and adjust until each miking setup was optimized for its particular instruments.  

His experience as a luthier makes him extra-attuned to the sounds of the instruments.

George is so easy to work with - friendly, professional, relaxed, and an excellent communicator.  

Even the rough mixes sound good!”
