5/22/12 || Greetings From Keith
Last month I returned to Compound Recordings to begin tracking on a new LP by Santa Cruz's latest local girl group, The Wild Ones. After interning with Joe C. for the better part of three years, I saw the Compound progress from an ambitious home studio to what I found when we stepped into the control room two weeks ago: a World-Class Recording and Mixing Environment where Analog and Digital converge to create recordings that can sound "out of the Garage" while holding up against anything currently playing on TV and radio.
Because The Compound maintains a wide variety of vintage, modern and botique preamps and outboard gear, a ProTools HD System with Analog Tape Integration on the way, the possibilities are nearly endless and we've seen professionals from Los Angeles and San Francisco take over the studio to produce top ranking entertainment. This makes Compound Recordings an excellent choice for artists and producers looking to have their tracks placed for licensing in TV and Film, and "Radio Ready"? Yeah, we can do that too.
In the years since Joe and I worked closely day-in-day-out, he has made immense improvements to the mic cabinet and gear lineup. Now that I've returned to the roost I'm bringing with me my current lineup of projects including some exciting developments. First off, The Groggs will once again return to the same room where we laid down "3D", a reverb-soaked wall of sound affair that has made waves at home and abroad since its release to record tracks for a 12" LP Release.
We've also got The Wild Ones producing their first full-length at The Compound, and their development has been astounding since we recorded and released their "Come Around" EP, which sold out its initial run of 250 copies on Church of Sound within months.
And in other news, talks are underway to begin tracking of the new record by San Francisco's acid-punk / psych / industrial legend CHROME with Helios Creed. More news on that in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, if you're ready to make a great record, get in touch with The Compound.
5/16/11 || Russ Rankin and Tony Sly
Had the good fortune of working with Tony Sly (No Use For A Name) today on Russ Rankins (Good Riddance / Only Crime) Solo record. Tony Came in and laid down some acoustic Guitar on three of Russ' Songs and it sounds pretty sweet. Next we will be working on some harmonies, More acoustic and if Tony gets his way, Shaker.
Working with some of my heros and peers is just another reason why I love what I do.

3/11/11 || American Idol James Durbin
We would like to congratulate James Durbin and wish him the best of luck on Fox's American Idol. We we're fortunate enough get to work with Durbin and his band Whatever Fits here at Compound Recording Studio. From Durbins first take in the vocal booth we knew this kid was going to do something great. Be sure to check out Ghost Town Hangmen featuring members of Durbins previous band Whatever Fits, They are equally impressive.
