2013 has started with a bang! Some new gear and plenty of new acts that we’re excited about. The studio has added a few more great pieces of hardware to the arsenal and have acquired a bunch more gear from SSL.
This year, we plan to continue to provide the finest music production and recording services available.
Late last year we knocked over some classic rock with the guys from Crashing Tomorrow, prog-rock with Liquid Gravity, finger-picking folk with Daniel Poloni and hip-hop with talented NZ MC Deadstar. I wrote the music to his tune “It’s Deadstar” which is featured below.
In February we began work with the very talented Sarah Rae on her 13 track album. Sarah’s style ranges from jazz to punk and we have had a ball working with her. Some usual suspects were involved – Steve Pope drummed like the talented man that he is and I played some bass, guitar and piano. For this project we also hooked up with one of the industry’s finest horn arrangers from the USA Danny T. Levin. Danny has provided horns for Snoop Dogg, Regina Spektor, Vampire Weekend and a bunch of other great acts. We’ve worked with him a few times and are stoked to have the opportunity to do it again. He’s come with some really fantastic lines. There will be samples of Sarah’s album on the website in the coming months.
Great friend of JNP TJ Quinton has had plenty of radioplay and glowing reviews of his album Sorry Business. He will also be touring Australia in the coming months after spending the summer (winter) in the UK.
Get In Touch!
As usual we’ve got plenty happening over the next 6 months at the studio, so if you are interested in working together please get in touch very soon!
