What you'll do

You will have the rare chance to be a fly on the wall during an actual recording session. See the setting up of microphones, hear the pre-production ideas between the producer and musicians, even help plug in the cables and observe the artists perform and lay down tracks for their album! Get a guided tour of the historic Mudshark Recording Studios which has been in operation since 1974! Come listen to the stories of the Grateful Dead, The Eagles, Linda Rondstadt and the Steve Miller Band, all former visitors to this Rock and Roll bed breakfast. See the actual tape machines that recorded Michael Jackson's Thriller and the first Doors album!

David

I'm a former Recording Workshop honors graduate, producer and engineer with over 25 years of recording and production experience. I own and operate the historic Mudshark Recording Studios in Flagstaff, Arizona which has been serving the music community since 1974. In the 1990's I lived in England and worked with the group Duran Duran. In the past few years I have returned to assist Grammy award winning Engineer/ Producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie, Trex) and Chris Porter (George Michael, Elton John) on sessions at Visconti Studios in London. I enjoy a special relationship with Visconti Studios and have been back many times assisting and producing my own sessions with artists. In the fall of 2018, I had the honor of also working with legendary Beatles recording engineer, Geoff Emerick.
