Yesterday I got to record a new song at White Water Studios in Surrey, B.C. This recording session was a part of one of the courses I’ve been taking at school. The course was a song writing lab. Each of us in the class wrote 2 songs and these songs were workshopped by the class and instructor. I got some great feedback and input into my songs. I picked the song “Words Can’t Express” to get recorded in the studio yesterday. It was so great to be back in the studio after a couple of years. I got to work with Roy Salmond, the studio owner, producer and musician and Carolyn Arends. Caroline Arends is a seasoned performer and songwriter. She has released several albums and gone on tours all over North America. She lived in Nashville for a while. She is well known in the Christian Contemporary music world. I would classify her music as folk rock though.
It was such a treat to work with Carolyn and Roy. They did a good job working with me and making my song sound great. I put a good 8 1/2 hours in at the studio. One of my classmates Tyler, was recording his song “Nightmare.” I got to watch Carolyn and Roy work on his song. It was such a great experience.
I loved the experience so much that I asked Roy if he’d be willing to work with me further and help me record and produce a full length album. I have my EP “Free Child” but feel I’m due for a full length album soon. I just e-mailed Roy my vision for my album. He said he’d love to work with me when I’m ready. I would have to have a plan for funding the album. Recording and production can be an expensive process. I plan to have my song posted up soon on this website for you guys to listen to. For now here are some pictures from yesterday. Enjoy.
