Frank Lupo is a New Jersey based songwriter that I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with on for 4 productions. Each song unique and well written, Frank delivers catchy melodies and progressions that echo in my mind after I leave the studio.
Having melodies that are memorable are a must for a successful production. Since we are close to Valentine’s Day and love is in the air, I thought I’d share one of Lupo’s latest productions which is a beautiful adult contemporary ballad written for his wife.
We decided to go with a more stripped down production focusing on a grand piano with lush live string arrangements including a quartet of cello, violin and viola. We chose our session vocalist Tara to deliver the vocals on the track. The first time I heard Tara’s vocal interpretation on this recording, I had to listen again right away. Her delivery is so honest and fitting for this song.

How did you first get involved with StudioPros?
I initially got involved with StudioPros to get my songs recorded. Hiring professional musicians and booking studio time is very expensive and StudioPros was a very economical way of getting my songs produced. Although I was a little apprehensive at first, the end result was great. Since I am not extremely good with the computer, with Kati’s help, it was a breeze. Working with her was a pleasure and she made working online run smoothly for me.
How did we help to get your songs sounding professional?
Dealing with StudioPros was terrific. They are truly a top-notch service with courteous professionals, producers and musicians. As modifications were needed, each was handled in a way that exceeded my expectations. “U & ME” was my third song produced with StudioPros and I am pleased to say that with each one, it gets better and better.
What are you doing with your music? What’s next for you?
I am currently going through a few organizations to sell my recordings (TV and movie companies to use as soundtracks). I’m trying to reach out to record producers who are in the market for “up and coming” artists. Hopefully, next step is to continue writing and producing to work my way up to the “big time”!
I still have a few more songs to get out there and who knows what the future may bring??? I will tell you this, all of my songs will go through Kati O’Toole, StudioPros and their team because they are without doubt, THE BEST .
