2013.08.31 // Road Trip!

My lovely girlfriend is starting her last year of graduate school in Canada, and I'm driving up with her! We'll be passing through San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, and making our way to Bellingham for a few days en-route to Vancouver. If you're in the area, I'll have a few days of downtime and would love to jam or write! Just contact me!

Anyway, I'll be out of commission for anything local for a couple weeks, but back in action mid-September and wide open for recording and production. I've got a couple bands coming in, but the schedule is not set in stone, so get in now while you can still make your own schedule! :)

2013.08.28 // Prom Queen

Buttons came back by the studio this week and tracked a bonus single entitled "Prom Queen" to be included on his new EP, which was also tracked at Clarity Recordings in July. Head over to his Facebook page and check out some of the new stuff!

2013.08.24 // Hey Porter

Just put the finishing touches on a sexy Johnny Cash cover by locals Lexington Field. The track will be featured an upcoming compilation of Cash covers tentatively titled, "The Black Project," which is being pressed and released by Grinning Beggar.

Be sure and check it out once they band launches it on their Facebook and the rest of the web! Definitely a fun track to be a part of!

Also, this was the first track utilizing my new arsenal of Audix Microphones on the drums. Audix has been a huge help in getting us armed with new sonic tools, and if you've got any microphonic needs, they're the company you should talk to. Much love for Cliff Castle and the entire Audix crew!

2013.08.06 // New Music

Finished up a new promotional track for The Calefaction this weekend. It's called "Sounds Like Thunder" and you can find it on the band's Bandcamp Page as well as on their profile for the Ernie Ball / Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival. It's a five minute progressive rock adventure that you should definitely give a listen.

2013.07.15 // The Calefaction

Forgot to mention last week that I've got a few dates coming up with The Calefaction this month! July 20th at The Epicentre with Convent and Within Ourselves, July 26th at Tin Can Alehouse with some out of towners, and July 27th for AZP Fest at The Void in North Park. Come out and support your favorite progressive indie rockers!

2013.07.10 // California Extreme

Headed up to San Jose this weekend for California Extreme. It's a killer vintage arcade and pinball machine expo. Tons of games on free play and amazing retro culture. Even some competitions for old school arcade classics like Pole Position and Robotron 2084. I'm free all of July and most of August, and the studio needs some tube warmth. Get in touch and let's make some sexy tunes!

2013.06.01 // Debut EK Show / Studio Work

The debut show for my new project, Everybody Knows, is just around the corner on June 15th at SOMA. Extremely excited to be sharing this project with the world, so come out and give it a shot. You might enjoy it! ;)

Wrapping up a recording with Within Ourselves in the next couple weeks, and getting started on tracking for new demos with The Calefaction too! New microphones and hopefully some new amps on the way in.

Things are heating up. Maybe it's Summer?

2013.04.09 // Everybody Knows

If you've been keeping up on my news, you know that I've been tracking with a new project called Everybody Knows. This is my new personal project and something I'm investing a lot of myself in, both in songwriting and production, and I'd love it if you'd take a listen. Like us on Facebook, and wherever really. Pretty much on every major social network there is. We've posted two songs so far! You can find them here: www.facebook.com/everybodyknowsmusic

Reviews of Our Work
"I first contacted Sean at Clarity Recordings for artwork design for some shirts. The work was very inexpensive and high quality. I enjoyed working with Sean so much that I decided to give Clarity Recordings a try for some recordings. Long story short, the work was detailed, fast and very inexpensive. You will pay WAY more at big name studios for the same work Sean will do. Sean really knows his way around his recording software and has an amazing ear. He is very producer oriented and can really help you out with ideas if you're a younger band looking for some direction. 5 stars for sure!"

"If you're looking for an amazing audio production studio in San Diego County, Clarity Recordings crushes it. Sean not only has a great ear and some amazing gear, he has the heart of an artist and is very intuitive to what other artists are trying encapsulate with their unique and individual sounds."
