Syncopainted Audio LLC was founded by Eric Bodreau [Boo-dro] in 2015. Eric had a passion for recording production from a very young age. Growing up in the 90s listening to, analyzing and admiring the powerful, unworldly productions of a plethora of alternative rock and indie bands, Bodreau quickly developed an interest in the recording arts.
A Portland, Oregon native, Eric Bodreau started on percussion in school band at the age of 10. Influenced by a variety of rock and punk bands like the Offspring, Queens of the Stone Age, and the Mistfits, Eric’s teen years were spent drumming and singing originals and covers in various different groups. When he was 16, he started playing in a band known as Neon Culpa. In 2006 they embarked on a national tour with Everclear on the Van Wilder: Rise of Taj Tour playing most of the House of Blues venues throughout the country among others including the Crystal Ballroom (PDX), Harpo’s (Detroit), and the B.B. King Blues Club (NYC).
In his teens, Bodreau started dabbling with early versions of software such as Cubase and Pro Tools in his band’s home studio. He spent countless hours tracking drums, guitars, vocals, and other instruments, developing what would make up the fundamentals of his recording career. But this wasn’t the only thing that sparked his interest. Being into gaming and computers early on, he also wanted to get his feet wet in the art of web design. In 2003 Bodreau constructed his first band website.
Bodreau decided to attend college for web design after high school. In 2010, he received his Associate’s degree in Web Design, and started constructing his first web design business. During his time in college, he also remained very active with drumming, singing, and recording with his bands and other artists. Life went well in the coming years as he perfected his craft, but there was something missing; professional recording expertise. Eric decided to take a turn in his career path as he headed back to college for music production.
In early 2015, Eric and his young family of 6 decided to move from their home near Portland, Oregon, 6,000 feet up in Rockies of central Idaho to pursue a more independent lifestyle. It was there in Mackay, ID he met the members of his next rock band, Mirror|rorriM (Mirror-Mirror). After months of practice and studio session time, Mirror|rorriM made their mark over the next few years opening for the likes of P.O.D., Lit, Saliva, Alien Ant Farm to name a few artists. In the summer of 2018, Mirror|rorriM decided to go their separate ways, which was quite the bittersweet experience.
Eric received his Bachelor’s degree in music production (MPBS) in 2018 from Full Sail University. Since then he has been perfecting his home studio, giving music lessons, and focusing on his passion for composing, producing, and recording music. Eric reallocated to Boise, Idaho to explore job opportunities and new endeavors in the music realm. Pushing his musical limits is the name of the game! His new studio in Boise, ID is also up and running with consistent artists rolling through.
