Album: The Stu Pidman Band
Before returning to Washington in 1999 Ted Reindal decided to pursue a music recording project with musicians and good friends from the Seattle/Western Washington area. EMU/Eric Richardson (vocals, guitar), Ted (bass, guitar), Don Freeborn (percussion), and Marlin Martindale (lead guitar) started rehearsing and arranging songs EMU had written over the prior several years.
EMU Studios is happy to have worked with various RPG games made by JV Games. The game soundtracks were included in games such as Medieval Chess, Towers II & Backtrack.

About EMU Studios
I started listening to a variety of music as a small child. My mother Margie was a musician and had a diverse collection. My favorites were classical, even when the Beatles and Rolling Stones were blowing the roofs off of mainstream music. Radio stations were changing to rock-n-roll, but I enjoyed listening to Classical music in balanced regularity. Some of my favorite songs from the early days were Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” (1949) and “Can’t Get Used To Loving You” by Andy Williams (1963) when the musical arrangement caught my ears. At age 7, I started taking coronet lessons when my school music teacher offered them after school.
Then, at age 8, after seeing and hearing Elvis perform “Jailhouse Rock,” I was inspired and knew what I wanted to do. I threw out the coronet and picked up an old beat up 6-string guitar. The guitar hung in my room for almost a year unused, but every now and then I’d walk up to it, strum the strings, listen and watch them vibrate and remember the Jailhouse Rock movie clip. Then one day I picked it up and proceeded to learn to play.
I've always had a desire to encompass the playing, singing and wordsmithing of music.
