About me:Started in music a long time ago, and still at it!
I'm a recording engineer, producer, studio designer, president of a record label, and manage some very interesting artists. Lots of good news to come soon on that front!
Built my own studio a couple of years ago, just to get to work in a place I love to be in, and have all the gear I like ready to go - instead of having to commute between London, LA and NY all the time. The studio is doing great, everyone seems to love it here. Inside the place looks a little like an African village, an environment ideal for just being creative.
I was very fortunate when I started, as it was in the most creative time in music, which allowed me to work with good artists, either live and / or in the studio.
Apart from being the "sound guy" behind the Dutch bands who suddenly came on the scene, like Golden Earring, Shocking Blue, Focus, I worked with The Who, Pink Floyd, ABBA, Janis Joplin, Frank Zappa, Beach Boys, Rory Gallaher, J.Geils, Doobie's, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Yes, Rod Stuart, The Faces, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, Stan Kenton, Lional Hampton, even Marlene Dietriech! And that was just sample.
If you have any questions about recording and such, feel free to ask.
