“Way Out” is my private recording studio I use for most projects. I spent three years with good friends building the studio -once a horse barn, now a livable and great sounding space.
The studio is designed for live tracking, easy workflow for overdubs, and mixing in a control room built especially for it’s purpose. You can easily transition between big room sounds downstairs, and tight ones up in the hay loft - all connected to the upstairs control room. It also has living quarters for comfortable short or extended stays.
If you’re interested in working with me, I’m happy to work elsewhere, but I love using this space! I designed Way Out to get great sounds easily, stay comfortable, be affordable, all in a relaxing atmosphere.

Before “Way Out” was a studio, it was a seemingly neverending, possibly impossible, but obviously worthwile, construction project between myself and my friends Mikey Ferrario and Geoff Traeger. During my years touring and coming home to make records around 2015-2018, I spent every free moment at the barn with my friends and family chipping away at projects. The space was a horse barn at one point - it needed electrical, plumbling, insulation, framing, drywall, paint, trim, heating and cooling, as well as all the creature comforts and technology neccesairy to make it a recording studio. Although it needed so much, it was close to Seattle, and lacked disturbance of outside noise or vice versa.
The ability to design a space from the ground up with the benefits of the large plyable space of the barn made it all worthwhile. I love making records here, and all those who helped in the process.
