When Angie contacted me a few weeks ago, I knew that the material she would be sending… [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: 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]

Communicating With Session Musicians

Communication. The root of a lot of sessions that go wrong as well as relationships in general not working out comes down to this word COMMUNICATION. After years of working on productions in all styles, languages with different personalities, I thought I’d throw together a quick blog on what I have seen WORKS. Keep it short. Musicians in general don’t like to read. I have seen clients write paragraphs upon paragraphs of changes that they’d like to have made. What… [Read More]
