My contributions are mere suggestions, and that means it's the artist's music first and foremost. The house has been converted into basically a live-in studio scenario. Nova is a very special studio out in Shaolin aka Staten Island No one will know anything about what gear we used or why we chose to use that take, so it needs to stand on its own. It's like any nickname, someone has to give it to you. All these bands in the studio
After 8 years I still feel honored to walk in and be able to work there.
When you are here, you feel like something important is going to come out of what you're doing and it really puts you in the moment. We play a few times a year. During that album I was able to act as head engineer and studio manager during album tracking. I was raised with music in my home. I need it to be believable and special to both the musicians and the fans.
