Rancho Cucamonga Studio
 

Rancho Cucamonga Studio is a private project studio that provides a professional, supportive and creative environment for artists. It has become not only the home for Bock & Blu and other projects that Gary Blu is involved in, but also for singer/ songwriters who come for the exceptional recording quality and relaxed country atmosphere.

The music producer's job is to help you get the best recording possible. Encouraging the best musical performance and coaching the artist are just a few of the functions that a producer is expected to perform. In Gary’s case, the music producer is also a competent arranger, composer and multi-instrumentalist who can bring fresh ideas to your tracks and perform them as needed. He has worked alongside Donald Fagen and Walter Becker as an assistant arranger and music copyist for Steely Dan since 1992.

Finding a producer who is easy to work with is essential to the success of any project. Sitting side-by-side with a producer who is enthusiastic about your music and is objective enough to critique your ideas and offer solutions where necessary is invaluableMany music producers prefer to take total control of the project; Gary prefers to collaborate as a creative partner to produce the best track possible. At Rancho Cucamonga Studio, final say always goes to the artist. It is, after all, their song.

"As a singer/songwriter dreaming of one day recording his songs in a professional studio where they could be brought to life, meeting and then working with Gary Blu has made my dream a reality.  Gary, a technically skilled multi-instrumentalist, producer, and engineer, has a musical resume that is undeniably impressive, yet never once was I, a self-taught, non-technical singer/songwriter/guitarist, made to feel intimidated or inadequate.  Quite the opposite actually. Gary respects and appreciates the mystery of music whether the source be technical or otherwise. He encourages, guides and, quite simply, makes the process of music-making fun, exciting and even affordable.  I can't speak highly enough about my experience with Gary Blu."   

Tim Lyons – Singer/Songwriter

"After working with Gary at Rancho Cucamonga Studio on my CD, I cannot imagine ever working with anyone else! He provided invaluable direction and assistance throughout the entire recording process. Gary is a true professional and his studio has everything that a major studio has, except the expensive rates and impersonal service! I can't wait to begin working on my next project at Rancho Cucamonga Studio!”

Kevin McIntyre – Singer/Songwriter

"Gary easily understood the vision I had for each song and the directions I wanted to go with them. He engineered, pushed and prodded them with his own arsenal of talents and talented people, and surpassed my every expectation. He is a true shaman and a songwriter’s godsend."

Nic Mars- Singer/Songwriter (The Adventures of Lunar Coyote)

Rancho Cucamonga Studio

What’s in a name? When Gary first heard that his brother-in-law had recently moved to southern California and got a job in a town called Rancho Cucamonga, he jokingly said in disbelief that Rancho Cucamonga sounds like something silly that he would name his studio that was under construction. In 2001, just as the studio construction was nearing completion, UPS arrived unexpectedly. The gift was a wooden engraved sign that read “Rancho Cucamonga est. 2001.” And so the name was born.
