HARDGARDEN STUDIO & JONNY TINDALL
HardGarden Studio began as the culmination of my lifelong passion for writing, performing and most of all, capturing music and voice; both my own and of the amazing people I've had the joy of working with over the years. From the standpoint of the performer; recording can often be a daunting task; often distilling the energy of a live performance into something lesser. I've been there, I bought the t-shirt more than once and I set my sights on making the studio experience one where creativity could flow and the cost/time factor became less of a concern.
After operating a fairly mobile studio during my years in the Caribbean, I returned to California with the intention of recreating my studio in a more permanent home with the goal of expansion and the ability to work with somewhat larger groups, but my priorities remained the same....capture the energy, make the studio feel like your living room, give excellent service and turn my clients into friends and family.
With that in mind, the current incarnation of HardGarden Studio is a small, well-equipped and intimate environment designed specifically with independent, up-and-coming and growing performers in mind; and it lives in a space I call home. I designed the studio as a place I'd yearn to spend my time, and so you would too.
Having spent 30 years of my life as an indie performer and promoter, I know that budget is always a concern, and while I publish standard rates, I'm always willing to negotiate in order to help get your product out in the world.
I built this comfortable, creative environment for you; so if you're an independent recording artist, band or voice-over specialist looking to produce demo and long-play professional grade material from start to finish, HardGarden is a home for you.
Ever-expanding, this streamlined studio features professional-grade gear housed in a custom, smoke-free environment. HardGarden is equipped for 16-channel live recording with unlimited tracking capabilities.
