This week on the show we had special guest Gene Rowan, owner and operator of Acorn Sound Production House. In our interview Gene and I explore the bands and recordings that inspire us.
During the show we heard some stellar live recordings from Acorn Sound Production House. Three of these live recordings were from the 2015 MOGO Music Festival, featuring local artists Berahmand, Redcast, and ADDverse Effects.
A special part of the broadcast was the debut of Gene’s new single “Blue Latitudes”. Blue Latitudes is a studio recording that showcases Gene’s talents as a musician and engineer/producer.
I was able to ask Gene about a wide range of topics when it came to music production. We spoke about recording drums, working with artists in the studio, and what gear you need (and don’t need) to get started. The PRP Talk Board lit up during the interview with fans from New York to Hawaii. It was a pleasure to have Gene in the studio and we look forward to having him back.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
