The Deep End concept is simple: bring musicians in for a residency and concert, and have them record their sets in a living room space, as close to live as possible, around a minimal selection of good mics.
Bunn has created a warm space that is all about community.

In January of this year, Jesse Milnes and Emily Miller settled into the Deep End for a residency. When they left, they had one of the best souvenirs imaginable -- a record.

WELCOME TO DEEP END SESSIONS
Here’s some home-made acoustic music in the old-time and roots traditions, recorded in the living room of a California farm house we call “the lodge.” Built in 1908, the old wooden walls, beamed celling and old rugs of the living room seem to have some rather wonderful sonic characteristics. We think you will agree.
Just north of Los Angeles, at Deep End Ranch in the middle of a lemon farm, we’re gathering a collection of old-time music from some of the finest musicians today in the tradition.
The old-time music presented here isn’t your parent’s version of the genre, exactly. While it’s practitioners are fully steeped in the tradition and conscious of being keepers of the flame, they offer new arrangements of traditional tunes, new contexts for rare and authentic tunes, and their own compositions in keeping with tradition stretching back into 18th and 19th century America. These musicians are part of a contextual shift acknowledging that this music not only comes from a rural base, but now finds itself squarely in the middle of urban popular culture as well.
