Yesterday, I had the excellent opportunity to venture north to Seattle, to work closely on the beginnings of a new project with two of our longtime partner companies, SDM Marketing and PBR Design. Not only did they treat me well with great food, excellent accommodations and a wonderful view from the Magnolia neighborhood, but I was also fortunate enough to get a tour of Electro Kitty Recording, which is owned by Gary Reynolds, husband of none other than Paula from PBR Design. Electro Kitty just got their new SSL 9056 J console installed, along with a host of other new features as part of their recent renovation. What an amazing studio in a great neighborhood.
I also got an advance sampling of the new CD from Gary’s band, Gary Reynolds and the Brides of Obscurity. The CD is called Santiago’s Vest and it’s great stuff full of hooks and harmonies. Check it out if you can, and make sure to catch them next time they play near you.
Be sure to swing by Workshed tonight to check out our new opening for Lara Blair‘s landscape photography. One half of the Portland Guitar Duo, James Manuele, will be here playing classical guitar and there will be free food.
How can you go wrong? See you there from 5-8 p.m.
