Richard Gibbs

We threw out the rule book when we built Woodshed Recording. Every inch of the studio was meticulously designed, with great attention to detail, both aesthetic and musical. That same ethos is clearly employed by the team at Austrian Audio, which is why their microphones have found a home with us and our extremely selective clientele.

Richard Gibbs is a reformed rock musician and one time member of Oingo Boingo. He has toured and recorded with a wide array of artists, from Chaka Khan and Robert Palmer to Tom Waits and Korn. He has composed the scores for over 70 feature films and TV series, including Say Anything, Dr. Dolittle, 10 Things I Hate About You, Queen of the Damned, Battlestar Galactica and the Simpsons. He has served as musical director for Tracey Ullman and the Muppets, and produced records for Korn, Richard Page, and Eisley.

His completely unique ocean view studio in Malibu, Woodshed Recording, has provided a creative home for U2, Coldplay, Chance the Rapper, Barbra Streisand, Lady Gaga and many dozens more.

Richard is also the founder of Armory of Harmony, a nonprofit that upcycles gun metal from buyback programs around the country into musical instruments for use by high school students everywhere.
