Singer Songwriter / Rock 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.”

Singer Songwriter 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.

 

Singer Songwriter 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.


Singer 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.

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 – mikedrewband.com


Singer Songwriter 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.


Singer Songwriter 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
