In the Studio

What we're working on

  • Andrew Schuster has spent most of his musical career behind the drums, most notably playing with Greasy Hands. However, for this record he played everything on it. And also wrote the song! It’s obvious Andrew great up in the late 80s and early 90s. He clearly sucked in that killer pop songwriting like a sponge. Produced by Alexei Misoul Engineered and recorded at Mobtown Studios (Baltimore, MD) by Mat Leffler-Schulman and at Sunset Sound (Los Angeles, CA) ...

  • “Willow B. (Where Are We Going?)” by The Greasy Hands is the first single off of their upcoming first full-length album produced by Mat Leffler-Schulman.

what else is out there
