Henry Hirsch is credited with being the impetus behind the vintage gear movement in the recording industry that continues today. He began his career in Berlin in the late 70’s as a studio musician playing the piano. After a few years he returned to New York City where he opened his first recording studio in his apartment, later moving to Hoboken, New Jersey and opening his Waterfront Studios where he recorded every band in the area and honed his engineering skills. In 1985 he met fellow musician Lenny Kravitz and they became music partners for the next 25 years. After Lenny’s album “Are You Gonna Go My Way” had huge success, Henry built Lenny’s Roxie Studio in Miami Florida.
In addition to recording Lenny’s hits (It Ain’t Over, Are You Gonna Go My Way, Again, American Woman, Let Love Rule, Always On The Run, Lady, I’ll Be Waiting, …), Henry also recorded four number one albums in Japan, Vanessa Paradis’ number one album in France and Madonna’s number one single “Justify My Love”. Henry’s credits also include Michael Jackson, Joan Osborne and Mick Jagger.
In 2008 Henry purchased a 19th century church in the Hudson Valley in upstate New York and turned it into his new Waterfront Studios outfitted with his vintage Helios console, 3M M79 and Ampex MM1000 tape recorders.
