Nashville (September 13, 2004)–For the past month, Masterfonics’ calendar has been booked solid, filled with projects that span the musical spectrum. The Masterfonics mastering engineers have been putting finishing touches on projects from their hometown, collaborating with the record labels and country stars of Nashville’s Music Row. Benny Quinn has been working closely with producer Billy Joe Walker, finishing Travis Tritt’s new single, “What Say You,” for Sony Records. Quinn and Walker are also working on Tracy Byrd’s upcoming releases.
Watch for future hits churning out of the Quinn factory such as the new Walmart sampler for Rascal Flatts (produced by Mark Bright and Marty Williams), the upcoming album Twang Thang by Capitol Records’ Tim Wilson, and the new single for The Grascals on Rounder Records.
Masterfonics engineer Tommy Dorsey recently put a new spin on a country hit as he produced and mastered the UK pop/dance remix single of Wynonna Judd’s “I Want to Know What Love Is.” Dorsey also just mastered 12-year old Grand Ole Opry prodigy Ryan Holladay’s new album, New Kid in Town, produced by Doc Holladay.
While Masterfonics maintains a high profile in country music, its engineers often work beyond the Nashville city limits. Quinn has finished the new, live CD entitled Live From The Full Throttle for the band Jackyl, featuring Jesse James Dupree, on Sanctuary Records out of Studio City, CA. He also just completed two upcoming singles on Wood ‘N Pine for JB of 2 SMUV Entertainment out of Atlanta. Dorsey finished a project out of Atlanta as well, putting finishing touches on singles for Def Jam South artist Haystak and artist KT with Mo Muzyk. Masterfonics engineer Jonathan Russell has also worked with out-of-towners as he completed St. Louis rap group Ghetto Prophet’s album, as well as St. Louis rapper Johnny Caine.
