Nashville, TN (March 31, 2008)–The year is shaping up to be a good one for Nashville-based recording studio the Love Shack. Owner Christopher Rowe recently completed mixes for Jewel’s upcoming album on Valory Music Co. Rowe has also been busy mixing singles for Taylor Swift, who’s Big Machine debut is nearing triple-platinum status. In addition, he has recently worked with artists Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts and Kellie Pickler.
Jeff Sochor has joined the Love Shack as studio manager, carrying momentum from eight years with the studio’s previous ownership, Masterfonics/Emerald Entertainment. Sochor has made engineering contributions to artists such as Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood.
The Love Shack, says Sochor, has embraced the new music business model of offering expertise in numerous facets of production under one roof. Rowe had previously led the mastering division of Masterfonics, and Sochor was chief engineer of the Emerald Broadcast Division. At the Love Shack, these services are provided in addition to traditional music production. Radio tours to promote artists such as Trace Adkins (joined by several co-stars of The Apprentice), Lady Antebellum, and Jack Ingram were successful.
The Love Shack has also produced Big Machine Records’ Road Diaries, web promotions, and Phil Vassar’s Valentine’s Day radio special.
