Tribute to Matt Harker by on Mon, 09 Jun 2014 11:47:05 +0000:
A week ago, an acquaintance of mine from my highschool days, Matt Harker, was hit and killed while biking to work.  A day later, a friend contacted me and wondered if he could use the studio to produce a song in Matt's memory.  Although I didn't know Matt very well, I knew him well enough to know he was the type of person who did his best to spread as much goodwill as he could to whoever he could, as often as he could.  He left a wife and 3 young boys.

"Of course", I said.  "It would be an honor to help out with the production of anything in honor of Matt."

So, over the course of 3 days, Ryan Kirkpatrick, Scott Francis, and I went to work on producing a song that hopefully would be worthy of Matt's memory.

The song is called "The Choice", and can be listened to, or purchased, at this link.  As all proceeds from the creation of, and sale of this song is going into a trust-fund for Matt's 3 sons, I recommend purchasing the song, and sharing it, if you are so inclined.



In other news, SLUG magazine took some time to review Tiny Boats' debut album, which was released in February, and for some reason or another, decided to give it a "national" review, as opposed to a "local" review.  As the review had nothing but good words for the album, I'm guessing that's a good thing.

Thanks for reading, and hopefully I'll blog again before July. :)
Too Many Goings On... by on Mon, 05 May 2014 22:18:15 +0000:
 So, I noticed I haven't blogged about studio things lately, and I need to get with it.

With that, let me just say this:

[img]/media/177/api_3124.jpg[/img]Yeah...  See that picture there?   One of those babies are now in use at Art City Sound, and although it's a bit preliminary right now, as I've only had it 1 day, I can with certainty say, "The drums from this studio will never sound the same again."

While reading the rave reviews about this preamp (and simultaneously getting a heart-attack at its price), I had my doubts about its claimed magical abilities to make everything sound better, but after listening to only one drum recording with it, I cannot express how much more clarity and impact this preamp has given my snare and kick.  I put the other two channels on the overheads, but didn't immediately hear much benefit there.  In time, I'll find where to put the other two (probably on two of the toms), but ....  I just can't believe how much better my snare sounded going through the API 3124+, with the same mic.  When I first heard it, I had to double-check that the under-snare mic hadn't accidentally been turned on, because it was so much clearer, and snappier, and punchier. (is that a word?)  I even used the same almost-dead snare head, too.  Anyway...  I very much am looking forward to working with this new piece of glorious hardware.

Enough of the techno-babble.  Since I last wrote, I've worked with quite a few bands....  Might I mention a few..

First, I've gotta tell ya that after MUCH ado, Lucid 8 has finally released their first single off their brand-new album, "Idle Revolution".  We've been working on this album for almost a year now, and it's been worth the wait.  "The Truth" is a hard-hitting rocker almost anyone can relate to, and you can listen to this single for free under the "LatestProjects" portion of our website here.  Idle Revolution was proudly tracked, edited, mixed, and mastered here at Art City Sound.

A few others who have been coming in, with albums on the way, include Chelsey Joy, a new-age artist who is collaborating with Art City Sound to produce her first EP, and has got to be one of the most unique albums ever to grace the studio.  Chelsey seems to have an innate ability to combine unique sounds to create a musical blend of darkness infused with hope.  As the engineer and co-producer, I often find myself trying to keep up with Chelsey's creativity and ideas that end up simply magical.

Other newcomers to the studio with albums on the way are Black Tie Event, Her Last Words, and Pushing 30.

I'll try to keep more up-to-date with the blogging, but one way you can stay in the loop with the goings on around here is through our instagram account.  It's always being filled with new goodies.

Thanks for reading, and keep the music alive!
Tiny Boats / Bret Slack by on Tue, 18 Feb 2014 16:23:26 +0000:
Just in case you haven't heard the latest about Tiny Boats' debut album release, a good friend of the studio, Matt Mylroie, a music producer in Florida, had these good words to say about The Broken Vessels.

A portion is quoted below, where the full review can be found here.

"This album is hard to describe, but it is a fantastic blend of styles, ambitiously produced, with songs that have been crafted by lyrical and musical artisans – leaving them with a level of depth and artistry that is sorely lacking in so much of the cookie-cutter music that is popular today."

Thank you, Matt!

The second portion of this entry will have to do with a guy named Bret Slack.

Amidst the talent that comes through my doors, once in a while I get to work with people who don't know how good they really are.  A few of those names would include Jesse Crowley, Cody Kunz, Taylor Miller, and most recently, Bret Slack.

Bret first came to the studio to do a 3-song demo over a year ago, and those songs came out great, but I wasn't sure if I'd see him again.  Being employed as most people are, as well as being a family man, I wasn't sure where music fit into his priority list.

As luck would have it, I got call from him as he excitedly told me about his idea of creating another EP, but from a much different angle.  As his first EP was carefully thought through, and production polished at every opportunity, Bret told me he wanted this next album to have a more "raw" feeling to it.  He wanted it to have a 90's grunge feel, with a hint of ethereal electronica throughout.

As the drums, synths, backup vox, and production was done by yours truly, I don't feel it would be my place to provide a full review (it rocks!), I will say that it was an absolute pleasure working with Bret again, and he has given me permission to provide you with a link to a song of my choosing.

With that, I give you "Here's To The End" by Bret Slack's band, "Rise In Style" (click here for song)

Lucid 8 / Jhonny K by on Tue, 12 Nov 2013 14:25:35 +0000:
Being an audio engineer full-time gives me the opportunity to meet a lot of musicians, and go through a lot of music.  Most of the music being recorded here is done by people who want to get a recording of a song or two that they want to post for their friends on social media sites, and that is great by me.  The more good music out for people to listen to, the better, says I!

While a good share of the music fits into that category, every once in a while I meet musicians who inspire me, who push me, who challenge me to go out of my comfort zone to see what can really be done with their music.  Music that is creatively inspirational, and has been honed and molded into the best it can possibly be.  When musicians of this sort knock on the studio doors, it's an honor to work with them, and I push myself to match the music.

Lately I've had more bands of this caliber come to me to help produce and engineer their masterpieces, and it's been very rewarding.

One such band is Lucid 8

I had the privilege of working with them on their self-titled debut EP about 2 years ago.  They since had one other release, called American Eyesore, and after that, they came back to Art City Sound to produce their next album, and although it's not released yet, the tracks I've heard tell tales of something amazing happening with this music.  I'll definitely be looking forward to see how this next project of theirs comes about.  As soon as I have a release date, I'll let ya know.  If you like alternative rock, you'll definitely want to hear this one.

Another person with whom I've had the pleasure of working calls himself Jhonny K, and could be the most self-less artist I've known.  Aside from being an all-around great guy, this dude can rock, and he proves it.  He gigs all over Utah, and is currently spear-heading a project called ARISE, which includes a series of concerts which will be played all over the country in high-schools and junior high's promoting suicide prevention through music.  I recommend you click this link and listen to What Are You Waiting For or Blue Skies.  You will rock out.  I promise.

Then there's this band that calls itself Tiny Boats.  I've been working with them for the past year on their debut album, and it's set to be released later this month.  Jesse Crowley is an amzing songwriter, and I've had the pleasure of working with him for the past 5 years on several bands and albums.  This album is sure to turn some heads...

Although there are quite a few more bands which fall in this category the last one I'll mention today is a band called "Johanna Johanna" (c'mon, guys!  Where's your website??).  This band came to me from Salt Lake City with 4 songs to be recorded, and the process has been awesome.  I'm not entirely sure when they plan on releasing their songs into the wild, but once they do, I'd recommend giving them a listen.  I suspect the songs will be released before the year's end.  I also hear they're rustling up as many gigs in the Salt Lake area as they can, so keep an eye out for Johanna Johanna.

Anyway... That's about it for the blog now, but thank you for reading, and if you need help with any of your songs, give me a call and I'll see how Art City Sound can make your songs come to life.
So Grateful! by on Wed, 02 Oct 2013 23:45:08 +0000:
 So, if you don't know already, I have been one of two people obnoxiously pushing a kickstarter campaign for the last 3 weeks.

The newly formed duo (Me, and Jesse Crowley) called "Tiny Boats" has been working on their debut album since early March of this year.

Tiny Boats' music could be classified as the energetic and pensive fusion of gospel and punk, and I first saw Jesse's lyrics for a Tiny Boats song, I believe, in October of last year.

At that time, my previously existing studio was being otherwise occupied, as my new studio was being built...   As such, I had no studio to work in.

The new studio, Art City Sound, was in business the last week of February, and has continually had clients coming in ever since.  During that time, Jesse and I have been working on Tiny Boats when time would permit.

Well, things got so busy here, that there was little, to no time to work on Tiny Boats, and funding was getting scarce, so we decided to see if we could gather up enough funds to finish up the remaining 3 songs (7 being done, or very close to done)

After about a week or two of brainstorming, Jesse started the kickstarter campaign, and within 2 days, we were 40% there.  After that, it kept creeping up, and getting closer.

Well, today, I woke up to Jesse's excited message "WE MADE IT!!!!" - so I looked, and sure enough, we had passed the $2,500.00 mark.

Yeah...  That's two thousand, five hundred dollars...   unbelievable.

So... I sit here typing, hoping to somehow show, through words, the extreme gratitude, and humility I feel at such an amazing outpouring of support for music.   ...and this is really, really good music.

I can't thank you all enough for your support, and I can't wait to spend this month honing and polishing what is sure to be a fantastic album to all who take the time to listen.

From the very first time Jesse approached me, I somehow knew this album would be something special.  I just didn't know so many of you would think so, too.

From a very humbled and grateful place in my heart - Thank You.
