Featured Artist: Ruth Buettner

Ruth contacted me about producing one of her songs as sort of a vibey electro-pop reggae type track for Halloween.  We talked about many different ways to approach this song, and after exploring some various production directions, a SIA type of production seemed the most suitable for the direction.  There was a fine line to keep this song tasteful on a production standpoint and I really commend our musicians for creating a song that has a great feel and vibe. … [Read More]

Featured Artist: Different Moon

This month’s featured artist, Different Moon (founded by songwriter Jim Piper) is someone I’ve had the pleasure of producing 13 full productions with over the course of the past year. Each song uniquely crafted, I have seen him evolve as a songwriter as well as a co-producer to help me communicate ideas to the session musicians. This last song, Hero, is my favorite and I had to share. The production starts as a pop rock track and then unfolds with… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Donna Karein

Donna Karein is a talented pop songwriter based out of  the UK. One thing that instantly jumped out at me when I listened to Donna’s songs was her commercial sensibilities. I could hear the pop influence, phrasing and melodies on all her material she sent.  It’s not every day you meet a songwriter that has a knack for grabbing that magic that so many pop songs have. I wanted to get to work right away!  For this particular song, “Gained Immunity”, we went… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Jason Price

Jason Price is a Virginia based songwriter and producer that I have had the pleasure to collaborate with for his project “44 Reasons”. This song has been ringing in the back of my head since we worked on the recording. With a message of hope and determination in a time of trial and life challenge, the melodies serve as an inspiration in many of life’s road blocks. The StudioPros string section added a string arrangement and live custom string quartet… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Logan Myers

Logan Myers is a young budding singer/songwriter with a very bright future. At just 17 years old and about to enter her senior year of high school, Logan is just at the start of her songwriting and recording career. I’ve always enjoyed working with up and coming artists with such promise and their whole future ahead of them. We have collaborated on 2 projects to date and we are now at the starting phases of production number 3. Logan’s sweet yet quietly powerful… [Read More]

Featured Artist: LIPKA

This month’s featured artist is LIPKA, an indie pop rock band based out of Genève, Switzerland. We started off by mastering a single for their upcoming album GRANDE GIOCATORE. From there, LIPKA decided to proceed with mastering the 12 song full album with StudioPros head mastering engineer. Our engineer called me one day and said, “You HAVE to check out this album I’m working on, it’s so good!”  Each individual track has it’s own sophisticated soundscape featuring catchy melodic grooves, ranging from lush string arrangements,… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Maxfield & Little Vagabond

This month’s featured artist, Maxfield & Little Vagabond are artists that hail from down under. We have worked with many artists from Australia and I continue to enjoy all the creativity that country can pump out. “Distant Kind Of Beautiful” came together real smooth. It had a solid foundation of catchy melodies and thoughtful lyrics which always makes it easy to develop. This particular Pop/Rock production combined elements of rock, and surprisingly a little pedal steel which really fit nicely… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Glenn Hammerstad

This month’s featured artist, Glenn Hammerstad is a Norwegian based songwriter that I have been collaborating with for the past 3 years. Collaborating overseas with artists such as Glenn always amazes me. Aw, the wonders of the internet and technology! Glenn has gone through the StudioPros production process on 12 projects. The first 8 were a more pop/adult contemporary style production and the past 4 have been remixes of those songs into a more modern EDM style. It’s been really fun taking the more traditional… [Read More]

Feature Artist: Nick Palmieri

Nick Palmieri is one of the most genuine clients I have worked with. I’m listening to Jao Gilberto while writing this because that is what working with Nick reminds me of. He has a sense of calm when we collaborate that makes working together very easy. I have had the pleasure of producing 3 full productions so far and we’re in the midst of a 4th. The first 3 productions have been in Spanish, and Latin inspired in style and instrumentation. We… [Read More]

Happy Xmas!

I’ve never been good at Christmas cards. Every year I get these really well thought out Christmas cards sent in the mail from friends and family. This year, I thought, why not record a nice little Christmas cover song instead? I chose to do my unique version of John Lennon’s :”Happy Xmas (War is Over)”. I thought it was very relevant for this holiday season. I hope you enjoy! I’m wishing you all a very happy holiday season full of… [Read More]
