I’m sure I am not the only one that was excited to kiss 2020 goodbye. To quote my client Jan Best on one of her latest songs “What a year, what a year it’s been!” Despite all of the challenges that this year has brought, it has also brought a lot of blessings. I have been fortunate to work with the best of the best for the past 13 + years and for that I’m grateful. StudioPros has continued to work remotely through the shut downs and the pandemic. In fact, working remote has been our business model since day one, so I also am happy to see StudioPros sustaining through the unexpected times.
I am an optimist, so I want to focus on the positives. In 2020 we have continued to bring work to our musicians to support their families and keep them actively working. It is no secret that the music industry, particularly the live show industry has been hit drastically in 2020. We are proud of being able to provide a steady stream of income to our musicians, engineers and producers through this time. This is an important time to continue supporting musicians. StudioPros is a direct channel to continue that support and access these talented session players.
StudioPros Producer Team Update
I wanted to also fill all of our loyal clients on some updates for 2021. I have decided to step down as Head of Production here at StudioPros. It has been a true honor to be working here and connecting with clients from ALL OVER THE WORLD! I sit at my desk as I type this. I have a huge map where I put a pin of all the clients that I have collaborated with. I have worked with clients internationally from just about every continent for the past 13 + years. The fact that we can continue to safely do this remotely is AMAZING!
StudioPros started with a dream and a vision from our owner Elad Fish and we have grown this company from just a few musicians to over 70 musicians that we have on our team. I am so proud of what this company has grown to become. With that said, I have other passions to fulfill and it’s time to move to the next chapter. I leave StudioPros with some of THE BEST musicians, engineers and producers available.
Seriously THANK YOU to all of my clients and team. I enjoyed working on all of your projects and I leave you in good hands! Please don’t hesitate to contact the producers for new projects. They are just waiting to hear from you, so let’s go!
With that said, I’d like to introduce you to our new producer Nicole Garza who will be joining our existing production team of Courtney Jones and Craig Durrance.
