Houston, TX (December 2, 2005)–Houston artists, Vibe Committee, just completed recording and mixing their album Flavor with SugarHill’s senior staff engineer Steve Christensen. Flavor was tracked in SugarHill’s Studio B and mixed in Studio C.
Lead Vibe Committee guitarist and vocalist Mike Whitebread commented on the sound they were going for: “We stuck loyally to our live sound, which offers a pretty full kaleidoscope of sounds. However, we were able to completely capture the essence of the band in a way that has a different feel than the live shows and can be relived again and again.”
Pictured at SugarHill are (l-r): senior engineer Steve Christensen, Vibe Committee’s Mike Whitebread (lead Guitar, vocals), Erin Crowe (lead vocals), Josh Matranga (bass), Jennifer O’Bryant (flute) and Lantz Stevens (drums, vocals). The album was self-produced, where each band member was involved in all decisions about the project. Whitebread continued to comment how easily the recording process came along, aided by Steve Christensen’s chemistry with the band; “He fit in well with the band, and made the whole process straight-up fun.”
The 12-song album will be released December 16 at the popular Houston venue, Rudyards. The release party also includes SugarHill recording artists The Medicine Show and SkyBlue 72. SkyBlue 72 are releasing their new self-titled album that was engineered and mixed by Christensen as well.
