We just finished mixing the new Pat stone and the Dirty Boots album ‘New England Roots’, and the results are simply stunning.
Needless to say it’s been an absolute pleasure working with this incredible band, and we hope you like the album when it’s released in December.

One of my very favorite Dirt Floor recordings, from Kerri Powers’ self titled album from a few years ago.

Laying down a wicked basic Clavinet part on a Lowell George inspired tune, using my Joe Walsh wah. It will be buried in the mix, felt, but barely heard. It’s the small details!

Eric’s experience as a performer makes him an excellent choice for helping artists develop their sound and bring their visions to fruition. The studio setting is inspiring and filled with amazing tools for infinite exploration.

I came to Eric with some songs and a lot of questions. He and his team helped me create something beautiful! I’m a songwriter and I’ve always had a good ear for this sort of thing but when I got working with eric it was like a switch flipped on both of us and the wheels just kept on turning. He helped me find some session musicians and a fantastic photographer and really was a mentor throughout the process. Couldn’t think of anywhere else I’d want to work on my music!

Eric, the creative side of the process, made several additions to the album by laying down keyboard, pedal steel and vocal tracks. All of his contributions were superb and the band unanimously agreed that they benefitted the album. Steve, the analytical engineer, worked tirelessly throughout each session, offering his constructive opinion on each and every take and how it could be improved. His ear is remarkable and was a true asset to our recording project. The team was the perfect mix of approaching the making of an album through an artistic and scientific l...
