Local rock hero Paul Adarr has been recording local artists since the birth of the 21st century. In the early 2000's he was the bass player in the popular local rock band Lidix. He helped launch the Cherry House Studio, with his fellow band mate's and started the record label SCAB Records. His band got airplay on local radio stations and even started to become known internationally.
The band and label disbanded in 2007 and he found his way to college at the Art Institute of Portland, where he took a hiatus from recording. He never lost his love and passion for recording music and the brotherhood with artists. Paul also spent time as a local crew for big venue shows for many large artists traveling throughout the northwest such as, Foo Fighters, ZZ Top, Heart, Beck, Ice Cube and many more.
Watching over the shoulders of pro audio engineers and helping run sound was an amazing experience learning from pro audio engineers. Paul also enjoys passing on the knowledge he learned and teaches an audio recording class through the Community Education department of Chemeketa Community College. He welcomes the new experience at Valor Studio as another way to help local artist produce professional quality recordings.
