As announced by George Walker Petit, Walkerrecordings Studio will close during the third week of July 2005. Petit will mix a last CD for David Ambrosio and Pete Smith before closing doors on July 21st.
Says Petit, “I am finding that I am being asked to do projects requiring more space that I have here, or a 7-foot Grand piano, but these clients needing these things are still asking me to do the work, which tells me quite simply that it’s time to ‘go freelance.’
“As an owner operator, I can deliver the job pretty economically: My studio, my clock. From now on, my rates will be higher–they will reflect the hourly rates of work in another room, and payment to me as engineer or, depending on the gig, producer,” continues Petit. “A big thanks to all of those with whom I have had the pleasure of recording. We’ve released a ton of music out of walkerecordings studio, but it’s time to release a ton more elsewhere.”
