Client: Chris Jercha  Song: Anesthesia
Studio Notes: A bit more hard hitting, we can go far beyond singer songwriter stylings here at B3P. Chris originally sent along some clean rhythm guitars, a drum loop, and a scratch vocal to get us started. He often records some initial parts at home, which we re-amp here so we can take our time dialing in the guitar sounds we want. Once it takes shape, we send it off to have drums add, then cut lead vocs, lead guitars, bass, etc. Chris and I provide guitars on this one and bass. Produced, Recorded, Mixed, and Mastered by Kenny Schick 2016 chrisjercha.com
“… a lifesaver in getting my project completed in a way that exceeded all my expectations from the partnership to the pro results.”

Client: Erin Bentley & Keith Jones  Song: Vacant Spaces
Studio Notes: The song was written and sung by Keith Jones UK and Erin Bentley USA. Keith recorded the vocals and acoustic guitar in the UK to a rhythm sketch I provided, then Erin did her vocals here. Kenny finished the arrangement here and played bass, programmed drums, arranged and programmed strings. Produced, recorded, mixed by Kenny Schick. Unmastered 2016 –  SEE VIDEO HERE

 

CLIENT: Kara Goslin. Song: Sepia Tone. Studio Notes: This song is one of the more produced ones on Kara’s album – as with the others, we recorded her lead vocal and guitar to a a percussion loop (click track) and then I added electric guitar, hired an upright bass player, and used the fabulous drummer David Nelson to do the drums – David works directly with B3P providing drum parts as needed all via dropbox, which allows us to provide quality drum parts at very reasonable prices.

 

Client: Chris Jercha. Song: Tied Back Down. Studio Notes: Chris’ project is a little more elaborate, demonstrating a full band approach to production. Like many clients, his songs begin with a rough demo that we discuss, then will generally track a rhythm instrument like guitar or piano along with a percussion loop to get a feel, then add a lead vocal, either final or scratch, and proceed to add other layers of guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, etc until we end up with a final product. These are more elaborate full productions, which require a bit more time and experimentation in some cases. Drums are again provided by the fabulous David Nelson, guitars are Chris and I, keyboards are Chris, and bass is me.

 

Client: Barbara MacRae. Song: Poor Unfortunate Souls. Studio Notes: This song was re-orchestrated by Kenny Schick and all instruments were played by Kenny Schick. Vocals Barbara MacRae, other vocals Sabine Heusler-Schick, Kenny Schick & Karl MacRae from the broadway musical: The Little Mermaid, written by: Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. Produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Kenny Schick 2016

 

Client: Michael Drew. Song: Daddy Taught Me. Studio Notes: Main vocal track by Michael Drew. Initial track was Kenny on guitar and Michael doing vocals cut live in one take. All other instrumentation and orchestration by Kenny Schick (inhouse) guitars, electric and acoustic, to flesh out the song. Backing vocals were also added later. Produced, Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Kenny Schick 2011 – mikedrew.co

 

 

Client: Kara Goslin. Song: Missing. Studio Notes: A more stripped down type of production. Kara tracked the guitar and lead vocal, then I added minimal electric guitar, banjouke, backing vocals and the horn section toward the end. Kara came back and added one more harmony on the backup vocals. Kara loved the forest outside the studio, so she requested we record with the door open – you can hear a plane flying overhead at the beginning – we liked it, so we kept it in.

 

Client: Raffy Espiritu. Song: Blowfish. Studio Notes: Lead vocals were performed by Raffy. All other instruments and effects were done by me, except for some of the backup vocals done by Patrick McCauley. With Raffy, we laid down scratch vocals and guitar to outline the song, then I created the tracks for the songs to which he came back and sang lead vocals and/or redid guitar in some cases where I had not already done so. Produced, Recorded, Mixed & Mastered by Kenny Schick 2011

 

Client: The Brownies. Song: Old Things New Things. Studio Notes: written by Tim K, performed by The Brownies. Recorded in Studio. Well known local ska band.

QUOTES FROM CLIENTS / ARTISTS:

 

“Kenny is exactly what I needed. I am a lyricist with a good ear for melody and a decent grasp of chording, but I do not yet have a producer’s ear that can hear what else the song needs. Kenny has a startling ability to reach into a simple demo and draw out what the song was always doing, but had not yet come to be. It’s as if he uncorks each song, and pours it out so I can finally see and taste it fully. Kenny’s sketches remind me of the soul of the song, which I often forget when I’ve practiced it a hundred times. When recording time comes, he is a pro. He has all the gear, all of the technical know-how, a strong knowledge of many genres, an excellent ear, and very good taste. He knows his stuff cold. He’s also an incredible musician, and plays many instruments extremely well, so he ends up being a one-stop shop for studio work. On top of all that, he’s as easy-going as they come, and does everything he can to make me feel at home and comfortable. At the same time, he is a stickler for detail, and strives for excellence. I sing and play my best when I’m working with him, and he helps to bring my work to a level that matches the standard he seeks. Working with Kenny has made me a better musician, and has made me fall in love again with my music, my vision, and my voice. I can’t ask for more than that.” Martha Groves Perry


“I have known Kenny for around 5 years and during that time we have completed 3 Albums (1 Pop and 2 Country). Music  has always been a passion of mine spending countless hours playing the piano, singing to songs on the radio and creating melodies to my own songs. I spent many years searching for the sound that I wanted the world to hear and thankfully with Kenny’s experience with countless genres of music and patient demeanor I was able to find my sound. Kenny’s recording studio compiled of elite recording equipment and comfortable atmosphere certainly added to our ability to create the high level quality sound I was looking for.” 
Mike Drew


“I’m very much an amateur, a guy with a full time job who just happens to love making music in the folk singer/songwriter vein. I bring in my fairly simple songs, mediocre guitar work and a voice that is, well, er, sometimes challenged. Kenny has been a great mentor for me, coaching me in his easy, friendly way with professional-level tips and techniques for guitar, voice, recording and more.
 
It can get pretty personal trying to get a clean take of a song you have an emotional attachment to. Kenny’s great sense of humor and  empathy has helped smooth over a lot of rocky moments.
 
When it comes to the final product, I am always pleased and frequently amazed. What Kenny does to smooth out the many quirks of my singing is the equivalent of audio Photoshop-ing by someone with a fine ear and skills for knowing how to shape a sound wave. He routinely brings fresh ideas for how to add rhythm and instrumentation to my songs, creating a virtual band that typically is Kenny on bass, electric guitar and sax.
 
His solos are the icing on the cake. Typically I just say, “I’d like a sax or electric guitar solo here” and he comes back with riffs that knock my socks off. His solos often become the favorite parts of the recordings.
 
One more thing. Even though I am an amateur, I have my opinions from time to time about a cello here, an oboe there, a line that should be a little softer or rougher. Kenny consistently listens and routinely gives me space to provide frank feedback. As he told me early on, his goal is to make sure I am happy with the final product. I am. And difficult as it is sometimes, I like the process, too. I feel I am growing. Thanks, Kenny!”
 Rick Merritt



“Basement3Productions has been a lifesaver in getting my project completed in a way that exceeded all my expectations from the partnership to the pro results.  It’s served as an education for me on how to run a business, tailor the customer experience and deliver just the right assistance. I found Basement3 to be intuitive and quickly gain an understanding of what I was looking for on all aspects of my project. This set ran the gamut from nearly completed songs that just needed a proper engineer to record and get the right performance all the way through producing and collaborating. They delivered many truly memorable contributions while making the experience both relaxed and energizing. With B3P stellar multi-instrumental capabilities and access to a stable of additional musicians for hire you really are able to get an amazing result. Also within their portfolio they had the ability to help me with my concept, advice about self promotion, develop the artwork and delivered an outstanding website.” 
Chris Jercha


“It was my first recording and I wanted to work with someone who not only had skill and talent, but also the sensitivity to both understand what I wanted and offer a perspective I didn’t know I wanted. As a multi instrumentalist, programming wiz and seasoned engineer Kenny provided all that. I also deeply appreciate his sincere love of music coupled with the professionalism and creativity to bring any project to another level.”
Yvonne Kerno


“It was an absolute pleasure working with Kenny Schick at Basement3Productions to record my CD, See Myself Again. B3 is the perfect place for recording musicians because it’s one-stop shopping. Kenny is a very talented background/accompanying musician/singer songwriter, a detail-oriented and knowledgeable recording engineer and a fabulous professional photographer. His wife Sabine is an equally talented musician/singer/songwriter and a professional graphic designer. Together, they really are the entire package—and can successfully manage any recording project from start to finish. They’re also really nice—and humility doesn’t always go hand-in-hand with that much talent. I could not have asked for a better experience and I’m really proud of what Kenny and Sabine helped me create …. I can’t recommend Basement3Productions highly enough!”
 Gail Weisman


“Kenny and B3P keep the genuine love of music alive in their treetop studio. Recording there is magical, and the professional end product is everything I hoped for. Listening to my songs after production is a dream come true.” 
Nell Maynard


“Basement3Productions helped guide me as a young artist by working faithfully to my vision of my album while also providing inspired, creative input. The work they did for both my album artwork and music was affordable and high-quality enough to be featured on multiple tv shows. I doubt I could have found a more professional and friendly team.”
