RECW grads Grammy Recap!

The Grammys are this Sunday night and we are excited for those involved.

RECW grad Don Laka produced, arranged, mixed and mastered (wow.. that's a lot!) the album "Jabulani" for jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela. This project is nominated for "Best World Music Album".

Fellow RECW grad Ian Osrin did the tracking for this project at his studio "The Digital Cupboard" in Johannesburg, South Africa.

RECW grad Jon Smeltz has had projects nominated for Grammys for the past several years. This year, his mixing skills helped earn a Grammy nomination as "Best Rap Album" for The Roots project "undun".

And RECW grad Stacey Hempel will be working this Sunday night for the Grammy Awards show itself, handling the huge Pro Tools system that brings the music to a huge world-wide audience.

Congrats all & good luck!

RECW grad gets Academy of Country Music nomination, "Audio Engineer of the Year"

The Academy of Country Music has announced the nominees for the 2013 ACM awards, and RECW grad Mills Logan is up for "Audio Engineer of the Year".

Mills has been the engineer/mixer for Toby Keith for several years now, and his studio work with Luke Bryan certainly has helped shine a bright light on his talent. Bryan's "Tailgates and Tanlines" is up for "Album of the Year".

CBS will air the ACM Awards on April 7th. No doubt Mills will be having a pretty exciting day.

Congrats!

RECW grad mixing Kanye West in London, Paris, Brussels

Kanye West hit London, Paris and Brussels a few weeks ago. RECW grad Jon Smeltz was the the mixer extraordinaire for this surprise mini-tour.

Certainly is an interesting piece of news to share right after the tidbit about RECW grad Jordan Kolenc being the monitor mixer for Taylor Swift on her RED tour. Having a RECW grad handle mixing duties is something Kanye can agree with her about.

Punch Brothers are brilliant!

Punch Brothers are another fantastic feather in the cap of RECW grad Jacquire King.

He engineered, mixed and produced their last two studio projects.."Ahoy" and "Who's Feeling Young Now?". Absolutely brilliant progressive bluegrass.

They were on Austin City Limits last weekend with The Civil Wars.

Here's a link to that show:

RECW grad's band cracks Torrent Top 10.. good news?

Cracking the "Torrent Top 10" is "Time Stamp", the new release by the Raleigh, NC, band Annuals.

RECW grad & bassist Mike Robinson shares this "good" news... fantastic to have your band get this kind of love, but selling it legit is even better.

Annuals has been making great music for 10 years now. They've been on Conan, and had a song placed on Veronica Mars.

Congrats on the new release Mike!

Here's a link to a legit acquisition:

RECW grad releases new book on Mastering

RECW grad & staff alumnus Jonathan Wyner had his new book on mastering released a few days ago. It's called "Audio Mastering" - a very clear title for a book that is very clear in its well-crafted content.

Jonathan is chief mastering engineer and president of M-Works Studios in Boston. His numerous credits include David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Nirvana and one my favorites Aimee Mann.

This book really stands apart from many others on this topic. Jonathan provides incredibly clear explanations and offers very practical examples in what is often perceived as the mystical art of mastering.

Congrats Jonathan!

Another RECW grad authors an audio book

Jonathan Wyner's book on mastering is only a few weeks old...

However another RECW grad has had an audio book "hit" in Korea for years now.. over 90,000 copies sold..

He recently sent us this note:

***********************
Hojoon Chang
I was 24 when I was in chiilicothe for hot summer of 91. I wrote this book in 1993 where there were only 2 books available in the country, but those were just translated or edited from many books which i really thought no one would understand, thicker than The Bible. My wife encourage me to write a book which people like her to understand how sound system works, even thought I was only 26 and not that much experienced one. After 2 decades, it sold over 90,000 copies, revised several times. Almost all Korean sound guy and schools uses as a basic textbook. I trully can speak that my expierence and studies from the recording workshop builds a strong foundation for Korean sound industry and a part of KPOP you guys listening these day.

Thanks all of you in the workshop.

Cheers,

Hojoon Chang

This made us happy around the staff table... almost broke into a horse dance...

RECW grad mixing Costello & The Roots at Brooklyn Bowl

Mixing Elvis Costello & The Roots for their Brooklyn show tonight is RECW grad extraordinaire Jon Smeltz.

Their new album "Wise Up Ghost" gets released tomorrow, and the show tonight at the unique Brooklyn Bowl is a great lead-in.

Much of this new album was recorded in The Roots' rehearsal room for their "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" gig. Jon Smeltz had a big hand in designing this creative space that the band has used in ways far beyond the norm.
