WHOS in the RECORDING STUDIO
Mike Nutt and his bandmates have tracked a few songs here for an EP. The three have played together in previous incarnations of the band, the most recent being SennNutt from Eastern Illinois University. The band is an acoustic based rock band using acoustic guitar as the basis for all their songs, though their songs do range from bluegrass, singer/songwriter, rock and back around to blues. The songs are extremely catchy and sound absolutely fantastic! Originating out of Naperville are members Mike Nutt (vocals, guitar), Peter Nyberg (bass, guitar, mandolin, drums) and Senn Soldwedel (drums, guitar, bass, vocals). Check out some of their previous work at www.myspace.com/sennnutt.
Starway is finishing up the tracking on their songs recorded at The Cow. This christian band with crossover appeal is in the midst of completing their first full length album combining songs recorded here and from another studio. The full version of the band is still newly formed though several of the members have been playing together on and off for years. It's a great combination of players and songwriters working together with a great message and great songs. Visit www.myspace.com/starwayrockband for more info.
T-Naz de la Sierra has started the mixing phase of their album. After recording 13 songs they're compiling them together for mixing. Once the mixing is finalized the band is ready to start tracking new songs for their next album, so I'm sure you'll be hearing more about them throughout the year. Go to www.myspace.com/tnazdelasierra
Russi Gore has come to us to start working on some of her songs. She is starting a business to send out songs as personalized birth announcements. The songs will feature the baby's name in it a couple of times and the parents can keep it for themselves and their children as they grow older, but also send them out to family and friends to commemorate the occasion of the birth of their child. I'm sure you'll hear more about Russi in the future as well.
Johnny Badlaw is putting the final touches on his mixes so his album will be done very soon. You can already hear a couple of his tunes on his website at www.myspace.com/johnnybadlaw.
And last, but certainly not
least, Chris Pluska made an appearance early in the month to put down
some vocals for the Chris and Tommy Experience, though now the duo
has an official name of Solanum. There's still a tiny bit more tracking
to do on this project before the two move on to recording something
completely different. We'll let you know what the music will become.
