The only recording I do at home is for demo purposes. My engineer and I have actually built a commercial studio in San Luis Obispo, CA. The studio is a 3,000 sq..ft., 24 track, digital facility.

There is a tremendous feeling of freedom when I can spend the time needed to record my songs, the way I feel they should be.
