2014.11.11 // The Studio is Alive & Well

Keeping busy with projects flowing in and out of the studio!

Just wrapped up a two-song demo with San Diego's newest pop punk quartet, Alive & Well! Powerful songs, and we're excited to be a part of tracking their full-length next month!

Also putting down some finishing touches on two new songs from American Rust next week! Keep your eyes and ears open for updates!

New samples are coming soon! :)

2014.10.03 // Projects & Gear

Been a quick minute since we updated, so here's what we've been up to!

August and September saw us doing pre-production for two separate full- lengths that we're embarking on in November with Alive & Well and Everybody Knows. The Calefaction is also mid-process for their new full-length album. It's been a busy couple months.

We also wrapped up mastering on an EP with The ShyFox and our new friends Condor, an atmospheric instrumental two-piece band from San Diego. Insane sounds!

Gear wise, new additions have slowed a bit, but we've acquired a Celestion Greenback loaded Mesa Boogie 4x12 that screams. We also picked up a Vox DelayLab for some crazy atmosphere and background tones, and snagged a new vocal mic in the form of a Rode NTK. Upgraded tube and a pristine power transformer. Awesome deal.

Party time? We think so. Hit us up to record in November or December!

2014.08.04 // Fender Special Run

Picked up a pair of Fender FSR Telecasters this last week. One is a 2012 Telecaster Standard in Swirl Blue. Pretty crazy paint job, looks like a bowling ball mated with a Nashville Tele. The other is a 2011 Telecaster Deluxe '72 RI in Gold Flake. Much like the Aqua Flake we've already got, but this one just screamed our name until I was "forced" to buy it. They're both set up with killer action and intonated to perfection. Use them on your next recording at Clarity!

2014.07.19 // Mixing the Days Away

A couple long mixing sessions and The ShyFox's new EP "Beneath the Beach Tree" is headed out for duplication! Little known fact: Clarity also offers in-house graphic design for album art and merchandise! We've had a hand in a few pieces for The ShyFox, City Reef, Everybody Knows, and dozens of other local bands. Looking for anything at all? We can help. :)

2014.07.07 // San Jose: Game Time!

I'll be out of town again this weekend for the annual California Extreme Retro Gaming Expo. Can't really argue with a weekend-long expo with a convention center FULL of retro arcade machines set to free play! I'll be away from the studio July 10-14th. Road trips are king. Let's make some music when I get back? :)

2014.06.26 // That Fender Chime

The amp collection continues to grow at Clarity. Picked up an American made '93 Fender Blues DeVille today! She's a little dusty, and needs a couple spots scrubbed out, but the tubes are pristine and she gets loud as hell. Need some Fender chime on your next album? She's the one.

2014.06.01 // June Schedule

This month, we've got a couple new hip hop artists coming in to track singles, and City Reef comes back to track another song for their debut EP. The Summer calendar is wide open for tracking, so hit us up soon and get something scheduled!

2014.05.22 // Crafted in Japan

The Telecaster collection continues to grow. Just added a killer 1995 Fender Telecaster Thinline, Crafted in Japan. Super clean TV Jones Classic pickups, upgraded bridge. This things sings and does it with a ton of clarity, which, as you all know, we love. Use it on your next recording here at Clarity! :)

Reviews of Our Work
"Sean helped me with releasing my first full length album. We did everything from production, post production and even album art and CD album design. As someone that grew up with similar music interests, it made working with him so much easier and was pretty much on the same page with what I had envisioned with my music. Thanks so much for all the help!"

"Sean does great things! He was very helpful in the studio. My band traveled from Arizona to record with him. He was super flexible with his schedule and we were able to record everything in a few weekend trips! Easy to work with, very laid back atmosphere, and he will help you capture the sound you are looking for! Thank you again, Sean!"
