Happy 2013 y’all! Hope you’ve all had a great start to the year. A blizzard is a perfect time to make an update because 37’ Productions has been very busy this past year.
Had a part in the on the Matchbox Twenty performance at the iTunes concert released late fall 2012. Did some vocal mixing for the incomparable Jimbo Barton. Jimbo and I have been working together for over 10 years now and he has had a large part in making the engineer that I am today. So it’s always an honor, when we get a chance to work together, to answer the call.
Mixing the Wednesdays debut “Red Letter Day” this is a great group of people with a wonderful collection of songs and beautiful harmonies; it was a joy to mix this. The CD release party is planned for February 23rd. You can get tickets here.
Old Jack was in to record their holiday single as well as a cover of Mariah Carey’s “All I want for Christmas is You”. This is a group I have wanted to work with for a long time. I had a lot of fun working on this project!
Just finished recording and mixing Sarah Blacker’s soon to be released EP “Precious Little Things”. This was her first recording with a full 5-piece band which includes new addition Erik White of the Brothers McCann. We took some new and daring approaches to recording this and the result is a beautiful and spacious recording that is a true step forward for Sarah both as a performer and a writer. I can’t wait for all of you to hear this! She has a pledge music donation site out which you can check out here.
Just finished mixing Vary Lumar’s new EP “Capture”, their first release after a 15 month hiatus. This project continues the band’s evolution into the electronic realm. Most of the music was done in a program called Ableton Live and brought to 37’ Productions to add guitars, vocals and horns to what was already a bumpin’ group of tracks. While this is more electronic based, the melodic songwriting continues to evolve and amaze. Keep an eye out for this very soon!
Also just finished a second single for Velah entitled “Knotted”. I love working with this band! They write great songs and are a great group of people, I look forward to doing more with them as they are one of my favorite bands in Boston.
Munk Duane has started recording his new EP. Over the years Munk has done a stellar job of producing, recording, and performing his music all on his own. This EP is a departure for him as it is the first time in a long time he has enlisted the help of a producer and session musicians. We all think the results speak for themselves, look for a Spring 2013 release.
Eric Calderone Group was in recording their debut CD as a live jazz quintet. This is the first time a jazz quintet has recorded live in the studio at 37’ Productions and we were all very excited with the results. It’s honestly very easy to make records like this when you have such outstanding musicians to record!
About to start mixing Victoria Smith’s debut album, which features Tony Savarino, Mike Levesque, Rusty Scott, and yours truly. Vicki is a great up-and-coming songwriter with a wide array of influences. I’m looking forward to this release and being a part of her growth as an artist.
Starting vocals for a new band called Singlecast; this is a collection of musicians from the bands Bone Dry System and Seventh Room. We’re all really excited about how this is sounding so far and can’t wait to get this music out there!
Eliot Bayless is holed up this blizzard weekend starting the new Composted release. Eliot and the band haven’t gone stir crazy yet, and anticipate melting some faces with this one.
Brad McCarthy has been in recently working on new material with the Barricades and the Wild Northern, as well as new songs from Rob Pagnano. Brad never fails to deliver great sounding music, and from what I’ve heard of each of these he’s only getting better.
