These days, there aren't a shortage of home studios: just ask your neighbor's kid with a laptop, SM 58, and pirated DAW. And, as always - musicians are always facing the same problem: cheap and 'eh', or expensive and...well usually they run out of money before their golden peach of art ever ripens. So, when faced with the same predicament, and nearly drowning in puddles of indecision, there comes Hendrick Gideonse. This guy is the answer to your prayers.
Before we set up a single drum mic, Hendrick was giving us invaluable help and information about pre-production; thus saving us a ton of money before hitting the studio. He came to shows and mixed us on the fly, gaining experience with the band and getting right into the most detailed parts of what made our sound work, or, what needed work.
When we got to Hendrick's Indecent Music - a handcrafted labor of love that goes above and beyond traditional home studios - you feel two things simultaneously: comfortable, and confident that you came to the right place. Keeping the nerves down dramatically improves your performance when it counts, and Hendrick's dry humor, attitude and patience all add up to keeping things light and productive.
Hendrick excels at what I feel is the top priority of any producer/engineer: Be as transparent as possible in the mix, while nurturing the highest potential of the artist he is working with. He worked with us to find a price that was reasonable on both our ends, and in many ways went above and beyond in helping us bring our first studio to life. Hendrick 2012, and beyond.
