In February 2013, we set up the first ever ‘Royer Labs – Mojave Audio Pop Up Studio’ at Folk Alliance International 2013 in Toronto. With the help of our friends at HHB Canada, we set up a studio in a hotel room and recorded 45 sessions in three days!
The folks at Auralex sent us a couple of boxes of their fine products to help with the room acoustics. For front end we used various Universal Audio products: LA-610, 4-710 and the new Apollo (great box!).
Engineers: Dave Misener, Brian Hogue, Shahab Mobasher, Paul Talbott and Dusty Wakeman.
Special thanks to Dave Dysart (HHB Canada), the great staff at Folk Alliance and, most of all, all the great artists!
From his teenage years until the present, guitarist amd banjo player Tony Furtado has wandered through genres and styles, never growing static and always evolving musically. He has toured tirelessly for over two decades and has garnered a great deal of respect from his peers, and has opened for and toured with acts such as Greg Allman, Susan Tedeschi, Taj Mahal, Leftover Salmon, Eric Johnson and he has shared the stage with the likes of Sonny Landreth, Keith Richards, David Lindley, Derek Trucks, Norah Jones, among many others. His music has taken him all over the country and into the hearts of many a music lover. Whether he’s playing with a band, or recording as a solo artist, his playing and considerable skills as a multi-instrumentalist and his strong songwriting prowess have led to him to be embraced on record and on stage.
