freelance producer/recording engineer --- vocalist, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist
|In 1998, I opened
Beautyrock recording studio in LIC, Queens. In
2010, I moved my mixing and mastering room
to my home studio space, Beautopia, and began
working as a freelance
producer/engineer at recording studios such as Wild Artic. (More
on this on the studios page). I am also
to work from a client's home studio or project studio.
Working this way allows my clients tremendous flexibility with gear and space, as well as their budgets.
|As a producer/engineer, I
will help you fullfill your artistic vision, whether you have in mind
something slick and commercial or raw and gritty. I will guide
you every step of the way, from the minutia of mic placement and guitar
intonation to arrangements and vocal coaching, song development and
I also offer my services as a vocalist, guitarist, bassist, drummer, percussionist, etc.
|As a child, I played
violin, piano and sax, starting at age 4. As a
tween, I picked up guitar and my rock n roll dream was launched.
age 17, I was making studio recordings and touring North America with
my band, Cruel.
When I first moved from Madison, WI to New York City in the 90's, I worked with Bob Muller at the Dangerous Music recording studio for a few years. I have since been a member of:
Double Dong & Wyld Lixx (guitar/vocals)
Tragedy: an all metal tribute to the Bee Gees (co-frontman/guitar)
Dangerous: all metal tribute to Michael Jackson (co-frontman/guitar)
Eye of the Tiger: a twisted tribute to your guilty pleasures (co-frontman/guitar)
You may know me by my stage names: Fur Coat, Royce Peterson, Mo'Royce Peterson, Blanket Peterson.
With these bands, I toured extensively throught the US and UK. Locally, I have played at venues like Bowery Ballroom, Irving Plaza, BB Kings and Nokia Theater. Tragedy was featured in publications like Kerrang, The Boston Globe, the New York Post and received international airplay.
