Just wrapped up mixing the Firestorm album in studio B at Sphere Studios in North Hollywood. The studio is owned by Francesco Cameli, who moved the studio from London, after having clients such as Adele, Duran Duran and Ed Sheeran. We also had the pleasure of having PJ Zitarosa from ENGL Amps there, who provided a selection of amps for reamping, making the guitars sound so much better.

Rocky Kramer and Kim Richards, being interviewed by Levvy Carriker and Juli Ragsdale of LIVE Magazine, at Paramount Recording Studios in Hollywood, CA.
Recording backing vocals with my band members, Alejandro Mercado, Michael Dwyer and Jon Dunmore, at 17 Hertz Studio (formerly One on One Recording). My multi-talented band members did an outstanding job adding more color to the backups. This was the last recording session for my upcoming Firestorm album, and we're now preparing for editing and mixing.
Recording voices for the Firestorm album at 17 Hertz with the very talented actor and voice-over artist Brandon Shepard. From a left angle he looks calm and peaceful, but see him from the right and he's a lean, mean, crazy machine!
Kim brought in two of the finest horn players I've ever seen in my life. Here's a picture of Tower of Power's Sal Cracchiolo playing trumpet (and flugelhorn), and Frank Torres who plays trombone (and bass trombone). These guys are the real deal!
Yours truly posing with two virtuoso horn players, Tower of Power's Sal Cracchiolo and Frank Torres. I can't wait for everyone to hear my upcoming Firestorm album, which now includes incredible horns!
We're back to 17 Hertz to record some acoustic twelve-string for the FIRESTORM album. This 1978 Guild F 412 sounded incredible to begin with, but really sings with Cleartone strings!
Special thanks to Lon Cohen Studio Rentals for letting us rent this wonderful instrument, previously played by Neil Diamond, P!NK and Jane's Addiction.
Nothing better than waking up to a brand new custom Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster. This baby is the bomb, complete with an Olympic Pearl finish and gold hardware. Decked out with Cleartone strings puts this puppy over the top. I'm in seventh heaven!
You've met the new star of my debut music video!
