ABOUT HIGH END SOUND RECORDING STUDIO

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS - CITY SOUND, UPSTATE COMFORT

Located in the peaceful surroundings of Columbia County, the studio offers high quality services away from the rat race of the city.

H.E.S. WEB SITE UPDATES ARE BACK!

We've been busy here (always a good thing), and in the midst of it all, we've fallen w-a-a-a-a-y behind on keeping our friends up to date on what's been happening.  The most recent event is one that should never have happened, but it seems to have caused no lasting damage.
On August 13th, High End Sound's owner and chief engineer was involved in a pretty nasty car accident.  On his way home from getting his car inspected, he was driving north on Rte. 66, when Paul momentarily lost control of his car and drifted across the center line.  Waiting to meet him in the southbound lane was a semi tractor trailer moving at a rate of 40 mph, the same speed at which Paul was traveling.  Miraculously, the driver of the semi saw what was happening and the catastrophic results that maneuver his vehicle to its right in time to avoid the head on impact which would otherwise have occurred.  Nevertheless, the left front fender of Paul's car struck the semi at a point about 3/4 of the way to its rear bumper.  The local EMS arrived quickly and emergency workers were able to free Paul from the wreck.  He was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital in Hudson, NY, where he was treated for some head injuries.  About 8 hours later, he was taken home by his wife, Leslie, who has been nursing him back to health.

BREAKING NEWS FROM THE EDGE OF HIGH END SPACE

THE PAUL MILLER QUARTET TEMPORARILY GETS A FOURTH MEMBER TO BECOME A QUINTET(?)
If you came to see the PMQ at any of our gigs, you witnessed a different side of SNARF.  A close friend of the band, Michael Crane, whose wife, Victoria Brill has done "Live Paintings Of The Sight of Music", suggested back in March that our original performance piece Toxic Assets should include the reciting of poetry during the exposition of the piece's main thematic material.  In the meantime, the extended drum solo that has long been associated with Toxic Assets has kept extending in spite of Paul's recent injuries. 

Michael and Vicoria, after many years of living together finally made it legal!  In July the two were wed in a beautiful outdoor civil ceremony presided over by Mayor Hallenbeck of Hudson.  Unfortunately (for the band) the first item on the couple's agenda was to sell their house in Philmont and relocate in Marin County, on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge.  Thanks to the ultra-modern process of "channeling", Michael's voice still finds its way to the bandstand and rises in all its stentorian splendor to fill at least the audio portion of the void created by the absence of two of the band's true friends.
For a sampling of one performance go to PMQ on You Tube and please feel free to post your comments!
Also, look for our forthcoming album of original compositions arranged in typical PMQ fashion,  "SNARF'S UP!" Sometime in the early months of 2014.

The Paul Miller Quartet is:

Paul Reed - Drums,  Paul Trapanese - Guitar,  Eric Miller - Bass

CAIRO GOSPEL SONG WRITER/SINGER RECORDING AT H.E.S.

Robert Hayden is a man with a story to tell . . . and he tells it eloquently!  He speaks from his heart.  That's the only sure way to touch people where their defenses are the strongest.  If you could see some of the biggest and baddest watching and listening to Rob sing his gospel music as though they were infants once again, crying in their mothers' arms, their faces distorted in the revelation that sorrow can be the portal to enlightenment and joy.  When Robert sings gospel songs, they are his own compositions which turn the former despair of his life into an ode to the joy of being reborn via his association with the Christian Community, particularly through the Times Square Church.  He plans to complete a full album of his material and market it through the internet as a conduit for digital download and mail order CDs.  He is also about to embark on a tour of churches up and down the East Coast.  For information on booking Robert or obtaining his music, send an email to us.  Robert along with the staff at H.E.S. will be happy to help you!

CHATHAM BASED HIP HOP ARTIST WORKING WITH PAUL ON MATERIAL FOR NEW ALBUM

Every so often somebody shows up and makes you sit up, NO, I mean STAND UP and take notice!  It was a stroke of luck when Franco Spoto called me a few weeks back and said in the voice he uses when he wants you to listen (I'd say it's somewhere between Joe Pesci, Federico Fellini . . . hmmm . . . and maybe, just maybe Marlon Brando as Don Corleone), "Listen!  I want to send somebody special over to your studio!"  Well I hear that often enough, but I reminded myself that the early bird catches the worm, and the negative attitude catches nothing at all!  I said, "Sure Frank.  Send him over!  Yeah, I know.  One day you will come to me and ask for a favor. . . ."  When the guy he told me about showed up, all I could say was , "This is beyond good!"  Rapper C. Harley is preparing to complete an album of original material to release concurrent with a string of local gigs starting with an appearance at the Peint O Gwrw's "open mike night".  They're always on the first Saturday of every month.  We'll let you know when.  Look out for C. Harley, a force to be reckoned with in the coming years!  With Paul's solid grounding in the old school of recording and rock 'n' roll, C. Harley has formed a working relationship with a producer who can show him the light at the end of the tunnel.  For more info on C. Harley and where to go to hear him, just contact us at H.E.S.
