Aw thanks, guys! I've been off the board for a few days, but this is a nice surprise.

We had a terrific party at my new studio location. I kept it quiet for a long time, but last fall, I bought Old House Studio, which I've been managing for about eight years. After a series of crazy twists and turns, I was finally able to relocate to a wonderful space near downtown Charlotte. It's a 2000SF facility. The main tracking room is 23x31 with 13' ceilings, two iso booths (one with 13' ceilings, the other with a 10' false ceiling/bass trap), a wired sound lock between the studio and control room, and a really great-sounding control room. I've been working steadily for about a month now and am booked almost every day in July. The results have been great so far and everyone's been having a good time.

The studio website is down for a redesign, but you can see pics and stuff one our facebook page.


The birthday party/studio open house was a real blast. We had a great turnout with lots of food and drink. More proof that I have a wonderful family and terrific friends.

Thanks, all! 40's been pretty alright so far!
