As many of you already know, I've now moved my studio operation to a new facility and, As of Jan 1, 2013,  I will be working out of The Gas Station studio in central Vancouver.   This is a very bold and exciting move for me as I'll now be able to do significantly more of the production process right in my very own room without the added complexities of booking other studios.

This new room is much larger than my old suite with a bright and open atmosphere.  The 12' high ceilings and ...

Well, it seems I've been lucky enough to have the recognition of my community here in BC by receiving a final ballot nomination for the 2011 BCCMA industry award for Producer of the Year.  I didn't get in to this business with the intent of winning awards, as my greatest satisfaction has always come from doing my best work possible.  However, knowing that there is a community of people that are standing behind me is validating to say the least.   Thanks to everyone who voted for me in the ear...

Vogville Presents

September 9, 2011
My good friend and studio owner, Jonathan Fluevog, has just recently launched his webisode series featuring artists developing their talents and business skills in context of the modern multimedia age.   

The inaugural episode features a band that I am particularly familiar with as I produced an EP for them a couple of years ago.  The MatinĂ©e are a roots-rock band based here in Vancouver that have a deliciously fresh acoustic/rock sound coupled with a formidable stage show that is blowing cro...
