Dirt Floor Studios in Chester

I'm still shining from the recording session at Dirt Floor Studios in Chester.  I've been dying to record with my friend Chris Brown who plays upright bass and ukulele.  Eric Lichter co-owner and operator of Dirt Floor is an amazing musical artist.  His wife Sandra, a beautiful artist as well, is his partner.  

The process was organic; totally old school and totally pro!  This is the only way to record at Dirt Floor.  Be a true artist and the truth be told!  I'll be posting my recordings on my websites soon!  Yeah!  

If you want beautiful sound, way comfortable surroundings and artistic inspiration - go to Dirt Floor.  There are so many wonderful things about the studio and Eric to know so check out some sounds and more information at the websites below.

A trip to Orange County Choppers

What a coincidence.  The day after I post a picture of me and my bike on Facebook, I get a call to go work at Orange County Choppers in New York.  This was a CNBC shoot highlighting American Entrepreneurs.  What a pleasure to go see the new headquarters, check out some of the one-of-a kind bikes and meet some of the OCC guys.  Yup, I met Mikey!  Paul Sr. is just as you would imagine.  Authentic and driven.  He was nice to me even though I was there to put make-up on him.  He wasn't so keen on the idea, but as usual I used a light hand to cover any obvious problem spots for HD and all went well.  No, he doesn't use make-up on the regular show!  See their website at  Paul Sr. just published a book called "The Ride of A Lifetime".  It's going on my to read list.  Another good day in the life of a CT make-up artist!
