Bruce's Home Studio


Recommended Posts

I was looking for this interview to post that I remembered was in his studio and actually found this video where you get to see, although briefly, a bit more of the studio than was on the interview

Bruce has obviously had various home studios over the years, going back to the late 70s. Albums like Tunnel of Love/Ghost of Tom Joad had large parts recorded at studios at his various houses on both the East/West coast. His house in LA and the house they lived in in Rumson whilst the kids were growing up had decent mini-studios.

Since they moved over to Colts Neck (they've owned much of the land since the 1990s, but had substantial work done in the early 2000s, gradually moving there by the end of the decade) Bruce had a state-of-the-art, very large studio built in the grounds. It was built between 2007 and 2008, and that's the studio he's done virtually all of his recording in since Working on a Dream. It's clearly a big part of the reason that he moved away from Brendan O'Brien and recording in Atlanta to his current arrangement with Aniello being kept basically in-house. Unlike his past studios which were more basic, this one would put any recording business to shame and is enormous to boot (several thousand square feet). It can be seen in the video above as well as various other interviews.

The Seeger Sessions pre-dated the studio being built, and was largely recorded in their house in Colts Neck. I can't recall from the documentary, but I don't think it was recorded in their barn which obviously featured more recently in the Western Stars live performance.

This was awesome info, Fuse, almost all of which was new to me—thanks so much for sharing! 

So...speaking of new to me, was the fact that Toby Scott's not with Bruce any more common knowledge and I just missed it? Or was it kept somewhat quiet?

In late 2017, by mutual agreement, Scott parted company with Springsteen. Currently, Scott is a freelance Engineer and Mixer, working out of his Cabin 6 studio in Whitefish, Montana. He has recently mixed and recorded a number of artists in country, rock, pop, jazz and classical. He is currently involved in a film-scoring project that is soon to be completed at Skywalker Ranch.

It certainly wasn't something either party shouted about, but it was raised on BTX a year or so back and isn't news to anybody who closely follows camp Springsteen.
