RED COUCH STUDIO
Red Couch Studio is my secret room, a place where I can disconnect from the outside world and concentrate on expressing my deep feelings and emotions.
Here I have my best friend (a Yamaha grand piano) in an acoustic treated and dedicated room, permanently miked up so that I can simply sit and record myself playing or improvising.
