Public Domain Christmas Songs

Christmas Time Is Here! Those words are as common knowledge as Charlie Brown himself. It’s not yet the time to open gifts, but it is time to make the gift of music. Although the music from Charlie Brown isn’t part of public domain, there are quite a few popular songs that are. This means that these older songs in are waiting for a new and refreshing comeback. With less than 2 months away from Christmas, this is the opportune moment to… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Riley Grubbs

Happy Halloween! Today I wanted to send a quick shout out to Riley Grubbs. Riley hails from Billings, Montana and has collaborated with StudioPros for years. This is our first full production we have done from scratch and I love how this rock production turned out. Though Riley didn’t write this song with the intention of it being a Halloween song, I thought it was fitting to share today with a title “The Day I Became The Ghost”. Riley came up with… [Read More]

Live vs. Sampled Instruments On Your Recording

Hi, I’m Ethan Rose. As some of you may already know, I am one of the producers here at the studio. When I’m not collaborating with clients through StudioPros, I spend a lot of my time focusing on my own personal music projects. I am currently a member of a duo called We The Dreamers, signed to Spectra Records, but I also like to write and record songs independently, using StudioPros to rid the limitations I face as a self-sufficient artist. To give… [Read More]

This weeks featured artist, Mark Timmerman, isn’t your every day songwriter. He leads a very busy day to day life working with the California Legislature.

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]

Featured Songwriter: Irben Jeter

This month’s featured songwriter, Irben Jeter, spends the majority of his time on the road as a coach operator. Along with that comes a lot of time to reflect and write melodies and songs. Jeter first started collaborating with the StudioPros team in 2013 and since then we have produced 8 full songs together. His strength is writing infectious melodies and lyrics. He records his melodic ideas into his phone and sends them over to me via email. From there,… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Crystal Mia Hinds

I’ve just had the pleasure of completing a project with the talented Crystal Hinds. Crystal is a young singer/songwriter based out of rural Lytle, Texas that has been frustrated by a similar problem that a lot of us singer-songwriters encounter. We have the material, we have the vocal chops, we’re missing the band and local resources to get a quality recording. After having a few conversations with Crystal, she decided to give Studio Pros’ production team a shot on her… [Read More]

Featured Artist: Steve Jiske

This month’s Featured Artist, Steve Jiske, has a knack for writing catchy modern country melodies and lyrics. His latest production, Carolina Girls is an upbeat country track with an ode to his local ladies. I find myself singing along to the chorus everytime I play the final version of this song. I’ve had the pleasure of producing 2 songs with Steve over the course of the last 4 months and am really proud of the way his songs have turned… [Read More]
