Since leaving the band Jellyfish, Jason Falkner has divided his time between solo projects and playing on albums by such luminaries as Beck, Paul McCartney, Gnarls Barkley and Aimee Mann.
Jeremy Stacey says:
“Jason’s an old friend. I met him through Jack Joseph Puig, an LA producer-mixer who was a big influence on me when I was younger. He’s a collector of vintage recording gear and an amazing engineer. He influenced me to really think about sound.”
“Now everybody’s got old gear or new versions of old gear, but back then we’d just got through the ’80s and I was going into studios and saying, ‘I just can’t get a good sound.’ Then I’d go to the same studio with him and get the most incredible sound with the same kit.”
“I asked, ‘What’s going on? I’ve got to learn about this because it’s the difference between sounding good and not sounding good as a player.’ That’s why I ended up with my own studio.”
