Hollywood, CA (May 13, 2010)—Stephen Marsh Mastering has been busy of late with both Marsh and Stephanie Villa handling a variety of projects at the Hollywood facility.
Grammy Award-winning blues artist Keb' Mo' (aka Kevin Moore) has also been busy. Between starting his own label, Yolabelle Records, and near constant touring, Moore not only found time to finish an album for himself, the aptly titled Live and Mo, but he also managed to find the time to co-produce an album with Jeff Paris for acclaimed blues guitarist Coco Montoya. Montoya's new release, I Want It All Back, on Ruf Records, features an all-star backing group, including Reggie McBride and Steve Ferrone, along with Moore and Paris. Marsh mastered both releases.
Marsh also recently mastered a number of soundtrack and score albums at his facility, including The Hangover (soundtrack and Christophe Beck-composed score album), Valentine's Day (soundtrack and John Debney score album) and an album for the Harold Faltermeyer-scored film Cop Out, produced by Carter Burwell.
Villa handled mastering on the debut single release by indie dance rock trio Pop Noir, "DIY," for Fantastic Heat Records. The band has garnered cross-country radio airplay and their "DIY" music video is in regular rotation on mtvU and in Footlocker stores.
Following a six-year hiatus, analog synth composer Jason Amm returned to see Villa for work on his much-anticipated new album, Solvent, Subject to Shift, released May 25 on Ghostly International. Also scheduled to visit Villa in May is young indie band The Morning Of, whose sophomore album was produced by Jim Wirt for Tragic Hero Records.
