Hello and thanks for visiting!

I’m super excited to share today’s big news: I’ve been nominated for a fifth time, for the ECMA “Studio Engineer of the Year” award!  The trophies will be handed out in Newfoundland in April.  I am very honoured to be nominated again this year, and I’d like to send my congratulations to my friends who were nominated as well.  Lots of PEI representation in this year’s batch of nominees…well done, everyone.

These days, I’m working on a gospel album for Kelley Mooney, a folk EP for Bryson Guptill, finishing up a country/rock album for Dan Currie, picking away at a bunch of new and old songs with John MacAllar,  and some various other odds and ends.  I’m super stoked about a new band who will be recording at the Mill in the coming weeks: Andrew Waite and the Firm.  Andrew has a passionate, steamrolling set of vocal cords and a stash of excellent songs, and he’s aligned himself with some fantastic players in his new band.  This will be one to watch out for.

So, yeah, things are moving along here at the studio these days…projects in various phases, from “start” to “middle” to “near the end”.  When it comes time for folks to record, I sometimes wonder if people think I am “too busy”?  “Oh, Jon’s probably too busy, I won’t call him.”  The answer is probably “NO!” (exclamation mark for emphasis).   I am lucky to have a fairly regular amount of studio work, but I am usually NOT too busy for your project too.  If you are thinking of beginning a new recording project, I definitely hope you will call or email to see how I can help you achieve the best results possible for you and your music.  And we’re probably more affordable than you think, too!

That’s all for now…I’ll check in again soon. Thanks for reading!
