Highway Recording located on Mariner's Ridge in Hawaii Kai, Honolulu, Hawaii.
It is an air conditioned 500 sq. ft. project studio with a 12-foot ceiling suitable for individual and group recording.
The room has a calm, relaxed feeling with soft lighting creating a mood not unlike one's own living room.
The engineer has over 30 years of recording experience with specialties in acoustic, rock, world and Hawaiian music.
Tracks recorded here may be exported to other studios via .wav file format.
~ ~ ~ Philip Keat, Owner/Engineer/Producer ~ ~ ~I enjoy helping artists navigate the recording process. Sharing knowledge and experience is what it's all about.
For me it isn't a money thing; it's art, expression and the groove.
That said, I do charge a nominal hourly fee which makes Highway Recording easily within the reach of most artists.
Please understand that I don't take on all projects. I enjoy working in situations where I can be of value
and where I personally enjoy the music.
I started recording in the 1970s using a TEAC 4-track reel-to-reel tape deck and a Shure microphone
to record a track that ended up on Hawaii's first Home Grown album.
As a singer/songwriter I realized that to get my music heard I had to put it into a medium that was easy for people to access;
something I could hand out. Back then it was cassettes; now it's CDs and the Internet.
Anyone who believes in their music and wants to memorialize their sound.
I look for artists who exhibit some creativity which is far more important than technical proficiency.
My typical clients are emerging artists, whether bands or solo artists.
I especially like working with clients who've previously had unsatisfactory studio experiences.
Creating and recording music should be a fun, rewarding and memorable experience.
Take pride in yourself as there is no one else in the world exactly like you.
Revel in your differences!
"Time waits for no one, and it won't wait for me" ~ The Rolling Stones
