Recording new material at New Monkey Studios~

I recently began recording new material at New Monkey Studios, a hidden gem in the midst of obscure actors/musicians’ rental spaces in Studio City…and it has become my little wonderland. It’s best known for being the former studio of Elliot Smith, where he recorded the album “From a Basement on the Hill”. There’s no wonder he chose this place. It’s cozy, intimate and has many vintage treasures, most notably the consule from the 1950s, where George Harrison, The Police and Rush recorded some of their hit songs on. It all began back in February of this year. I played a show at The Mint in Los Angeles where I met a group of extremely nice individuals after the show who wanted to support my music. That’s where I met Greg Cortez: Recording Engineer, Producer and now, friend. Greg offered to record an EP with me at New Monkey Studios. We met a few times to discuss ideas and plans, everything inclining in a positive direction. I feel really blessed from the whole sequence of events! The recording process officially started a few weeks ago. My favorite part about working with Greg is that he is also a creative songwriter, which helps a lot in ironing out snags during the production and recording process. Hopefully the songs will wrap up in the next few months. The new songs are a bit different stylistically than the last EP, as I’m playing around with more imagery, which we think would fit nicely in a film or TV scene. I can’t wait to share them with you. And thanks Greg, for having me on board. -Anahita
