S. HUSKY HÖSKULDS
Husky Höskulds is an audio engineer who always looks for character in recordings – anything that can make a production unique is met with a smile and a cup of coffee. Speaking of which, Husky is a master of – he is said to be one of the trailblazers who brought great coffee (arguably the most important bit of outboard gear) to studios all over Los Angeles. With his David Lynch roast on the side of the mixing console, he has worked on albums by Sheryl Crow, Tom Waits, Mike Patton, The Wallflowers and many more, including Norah Jones and Solomon Burke which brought him Grammy awards and nominations. Now his studio in L.A. also features our PLUS and PLASMA Pedals – we can be certain that Husky’s raw and imaginative approach to sound engineering will make the best out of our pedals in a studio setting.
“Someone once said, “Everything you do, says something about you.” And I think that’s true. When people walk into my studio they see art on the walls, books, DVD’s and CD’s on the shelves, and colored bulbs in the lamps. The desks, a lot of the furniture, and the shelves are largely built by me. A custom fit, as it were. Designed perfectly for each task.”
“A lot of albums sound the same to me, these days. The same drum treatments, the same vocal treatments, and on the rare occasion there is a deviation, it seems disconnected from the song, or its meaning. Sort of a copied idea: “distorted vocals in the verse, like that song on the radio”. But mostly, 12 white eggs neatly identical, in an egg carton. None stand out. None catch your eye. I don’t know what coffee these people are drinking, but I’m sure it’s not David Lynch’s Espresso Roast.”
