Spatula Ranch Studios has moved around over the years, from the early days in Hoboken, NJ, where the majority of The Ghost Rockets tracks were recorded, to the living room of a 3rd floor brownstone walkup in Washington Heights, NYC, where the first Dixie Bee-Liners CD was born, to the upper floor of a house in Abingdon, VA, to the lighting booth at Converse College’s Hazel B. Abbott Theatre in Spartanburg, SC, to a bedroom closet in Hermitage, TN, and currently a spare bedroom in Nashville.

Starting with analog tape before moving to PreSonus’ Studio One software, a few bits of ancient but beloved outboard gear and a modest mic cabinet, the goal has always been simplicity, forethought, and the use of available space to create unique sounds.
