Frenchie is currently producing The Answer, a band from Northern Ireland, at Sonic Ranch studios.
Sonic Ranch is the world’s largest residential recording facility. It houses five studios on a 2,800 acre pecan orchard.
It’s a happy wonderland for musicians and visitors- sleep in big comfy sleigh beds, eat delicious Mexican food prepared by the wonderful staff, be-friend the ranch cats, cruise around on a tour with Tony and he’ll show you everything, which includes:
“Five Vincent Van Haaff designed studios, a large tracking room (47′, 36′, 22′), six additional unique and varied recording rooms, an extensive vintage microphone collection, a large collection of vintage and modern outboard equipment, and one the best guitar, amp and pedal collection offered any where. The studios adjoins a traditional seventy year old Spanish Hacienda with 12 individual bedrooms, a workout room, dining rooms, band den, patio/barbicue area and pool. There are three additional houses on the ranch providing 13 more bedrooms and additional kitchens and living rooms. “
