New Open-studio Recording Project

Ovation studio

I am fortunate to be a part of a new video series that will begin to be released soon. Some friends of mine, who happen to be amazing musicians, and I got together on a random Saturday night that we all didn’t have another gig, and put on an open studio session where we recorded two hours of material with an audience of about 25 people in the studio. Bill Stevens, the co-owner of the studio, masterminded the project and made it happen after a conversation we had with Daniel Seriff in the car on the way to a gig the previous week.

Are you familiar with Snarky Puppy? You should be. They made a name for themselves playing incredible music and making Youtube videos of their open studio sessions, which is where we got the idea. But Bill Stevens is the kind of guy who takes a good idea and runs with it, and he put on two great sessions at his studio, Ovation Sound in Winston-Salem, NC.

We recorded with multiple camera angles, and Daniel Seriff has been tasked with producing the video with the audio Bill recorded during the performance. Dan is a busy guy already, so it has taken two months to work up the first video, but I’m really happy with the product. And I’m really looking forward to seeing the rest of these videos!
