Nashville/NYC/Bainbridge Island, WA (September 17, 2004)–Collective Soul recently tracked and mixed for an upcoming record at Nashville’s Quad Studios, with producer Dexter Green and engineer Shawn Grove, using Pro Tools HD, an SSL 9000 J console, and Dynaudio M4s and Yamaha NS-10s for monitoring. A new release for George Canyon was mixed at Quad as well, with producer Steve Mandile and David Thoener working in Studio A. Also in Studio A, Young Buck tracked an upcoming Interscope/Sha Money release with engineer James Warner.
Working at NYC’s Shelter Island Sound recently was Velour Recording artist Sonya Kitchell, who was finishing her debut album with producer Steve Addabbo. Rebecca Martin mixed her new Maxx Jazz release People Behave Like Ballads at Shelter Island, with James Farber at the board and Andrew Solin assisting. Producer Dave Seitz was in finishing a new album for John Wesley Harding for Appleseed Records, and Ray Martin mixed “Live from Austin” for The Thrills for Virgin records.
And, Trillium Lane Studios has been block-booked by a new rock opera project Joe Bean planning to open in New York and London in 2006. Producer/composer Mark Nichols is creating the tracks and songs, which will become the show’s retail CD. Trillium Lane’s private, forested location allows Nichols and project engineer Tracy Michael Berninger space to spread their gear out and work without distraction or pressure. Nichols is pleased with progress so far, using Trillium Lane’s Digidesign Pro Tools HD3 and Pro Control system.
