Though it is holiday time, production has begun on the second Specialized Innovative Therapies album.
We just wrapped up drum recordings for the album in Duluth, GA. Other elements will soon follow and finish up in Houston (look for an early summer release). The album is shaping up to incorporate much more of a rock feel compared to the first album. Still, there are songs on the album that will show a much more eclectic side. All of the songs will again involve educational themes as well as positive messages for children (and parents) to listen to and enjoy.
I did a recent session and mix with Coozablack and Sin City for their original Houston Texans song. The band (and I) hope the song is picked up by the team and plays regularly at Reliant! The guys in Coozablack are always great to have in the studio and I look forward to working with them more in the near future.
In addition, I engineered on Coozablack and Sin City's latest EP entitled "The Takeover," which is now available through the band at www.coozablack.com.
The Specialized Innovative Therapies "Music In You" album is now available for purchase. The eleven song album is a great educational tool as it spans topics such as counting, ABC's, colors, and animals (just to name a few). Even though the primary audience for the project are the children Specialized Innovative Therapies work with everyday, we worked hard to craft the songs, arrangements, and mixes to also cater to the "older crowd."
The mixes were wonderfully mastered by Chis Longwood at Essential Sound Mastering/SugarHill Studios and the album can be purchased directly from Specialized Innovative Therapies. More information can be found at:
It was a pleasure working with Torey on this project and I look forward to the next album (which is already in the works)!
We are in the last stages of recording and mixing the Specialized Innovative Therapies album. The album is shaping up to include children songs in many different genres and styles. Catchy melodies/tunes, great singing, and education --- What more could you ask for? You can read more about the project here:
This is a write-up and video of a trip I took while a graduate student at MTSU.
I was part of a class that went to Kennedy Space Center in Florida to gather footage for a NASA documentary for Nashville Public Television. I served as A2 for the trip and also composed, recorded, and mixed music for the documentary.
It was great working with Dusty and Aurelia and recording the tracks for their duo, Urban Dreamz. These two can really sing and their song has a super hook. Thanks to Dusty for the kind words and great picture!
In addition to recording and mixing "Make It Up As We Go," I put together the drum tracks and played bass.
