Featured Artist: James Dean Claitor

In these precarious times, many of us are turning to music to cope with uncertainty and loss. James Dean Claitor is no stranger to the healing power of music. When I began working with James in the fall of 2019, he mentioned that he was undergoing painful cancer treatment, but when he created music he feels no pain. Since then we’ve worked on 17 songs together and counting! When James sent me the demo for Mercedes Man, I knew the song… [Read More]

I Miss Everything.

How are you doing? Things are strange, unexpected and surreal. One thing that is keeping me going right now is the fact that I am still able to collaborate with my wonderful clients from across the globe. Collaborating online allows us to remotely and safely get projects done from the comfort of our studios. This latest project “How We Get Through” is for one of my long time favorites, The Cautious Arc. This production features the collaboration between the artist… [Read More]

The Earth In Unity

Angie Zawada is a Montreal based songwriter that I have had the pleasure of collaborating with since 2012. Together, we have completed 5 projects that range from full production to mixing and mastering. This particular project “To Gaia’s Freedom” was a project we helped finalize by taking her raw stems and completing the final touch of mixing and mastering with our StudioPros engineer. When Angie contacted me a few weeks ago, I knew that the material she would be sending… [Read More]

Remembering Stephen Budd

Today marks the one year anniversary of the passing of one of my favorite clients, Stephen Budd. Stephen was a Utah based singer/songwriter who specialized in Contemporary Christian music. Stephen and I co-produced an album of 10 songs with StudioPros production team over the course of 5 years. The common theme of Stephen’s music is an acoustic based guitar foundation with additional live instrumentation including live drums, electric bass, additional auxiliary keyboard instruments (we had fun choosing between melotron, wurlitzer… [Read More]

Featured Artist: John Lindsell

Anthemic Earth-themed power ballad bursts forth to deliver an incredible message of unity. “From the sub-tropical coast of Queensland, Australia, it’s a tiring fourteen-hour haul to L.A. by Dreamliner, so when music producer Dom Williams assured me StudioPros could electronically reach every corner of the planet, I was hooked.” Meet John Lindsell, a budding songwriter making his way into the music industry one amazing song at a time. His doorway to songwriting opened up following a tragic event in his… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Phil Kershaw

This week’s featured artist/songwriter, Phil Kershaw is from beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Together Phil and I have produced 3 songs. I always enjoy Phil’s positivity and trust in our team to take his songs from a very basic guitar/vocal demo stage and transform them into soulful soundscapes with our talented session musicians and vocalists. For this song, “The Bells”, we wanted to have a more Contemporary Christian approach with some undertones of soulful gospel elements. We chose to go with… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Danila Sigal

Being the daughter of a classically-trained prodigy concert violinist, longtime StudioPros client Danila Sigal was brought up around music her entire life. As a kid, she wrote songs and studied piano, but it wasn’t until her metastatic cancer diagnosis that music took on a whole new meaning. She says, “ [Music] became my main source of reflective self-expression.” After a long corporate career, she is “currently fully dedicated to motivational work through music, as an ambassador and health advocate for… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Simon Strauss

“Four Winters” is a recent production that StudioPros has produced for Australian songwriter Simon Strauss. His music falls into the folk, acoustic, rock genre. I have had the pleasure of working on Simon’s music for several years now. Catchy melodies and meaningful story-telling lyrics are at the core of what Simon’s music is about. So if you have a moment please take a listen and hope you enjoy. My favorite element of this production is the throwback sounds of the… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Artist D’Elle

When Artist D’Elle contacted me about producing a roots-blues Americana track “Truth Be Told”, I was so excited. As a folk artist myself, the picture she had painted about her song and vision really resonated with me. We had talks about finding a way to produce the music that took you back to a Mississippi front porch. Picture sitting on the front porch picking on an old beat up acoustic guitar as musicians join in. The first goal, find the… [Read More]

We Could All Use Some Holiday Humor

Tim Tim Tye is a client that I have worked with for the past 5 years, producing over an album’s worth of material. I just had to share one of our latest collaborations, “Retail at Christmas.” When Tim approached me with this song, I was excited to work on a more comical song for the holidays. A lot of us get overwhelmed this time of year and, let’s be honest, not everything is always fairy dust and smiles. “Retail at Christmas”… [Read More]
