It's A Wonderworld!

Most agree as more and more albums are mixed in Pro Tools from people's bedrooms and other untreated spaces, the accepted level of quality has decreased significantly. "I wanted to create an environment where I could turn out mixes of the quality I was accustomed and not be so governed by budgetary constraints," says Grammy and Emmy-nominated recording engineer/mixer/producer Clark Germain (U2, Herbie Hancock, Dave Koz, Counting Crows, David Benoit).

Ron Lindsey
Americelt Union

A chance meeting in 2000 brought singer songwriter Ron Lindsey and Los Angeles based producer John Wooler together and was the catalyst for Lindsey's decision to record his debut.

Paul Nicholas
Remember Me Forever

On June 1st, singer/songwriter Paul Nicholas’ newest CD, "Remember Me Forever," premiered on "The Montel Williams Show." The single from that album, "Please Remember Me," could become the anthem of the fight against MS.

The album’s Executive Producer is Bob Rosa, veteran multi-platinum and Grammy winning producer (Madonna , N*SYNC, Mariah Carey).

“Remember Me Forever” did not start out as a charity project. Nicholas had been waiting for an opportunity to work with Rosa for some time, and was on one of the first flights out of New York to South Florida right after September 11, where Rosa had recently relocated from New York. The sessions were going well, but after having several songs completed Nicholas fell ill and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. He was forced to return to New York for treatment, but never gave up the dream of completing his record.

After many months of recuperation and treatment, Nicholas returned to Florida to complete the album with Rosa, who never lost his faith in Nicholas’ talent and determination. He also collaborated with several other producers such as Jimmy Greco in New York and Rudy Haeusermann (Lisa Marie Presley, Rob Zombie, in Los Angeles. The album was mixed and mastered by Bob Rosa at his studio in Hollywood, Florida.

“Remember Me Forever” is available for sale on line at paulnicholasonline.com. 15% of the proceeds from the album will be donated to the Montel Williams Foundation for MS Research.

Rufus Thomas
Just Because I'm Leavin'
Segue Records

Just Because I'm Leavin'... was recorded in 1990 and 1991 at the Legendary Sun Recording Studio in Memphis where Rufus started out decades before. Sun Records is long gone, but the studio lives on as part of the Sun Records Museum during the day, at night it remains a popular working studio for up-and-coming Memphis musicians of today.

"These master tapes had had basically sat in a closet in Memphis for the past ten years until Marvell Thomas (Executor of Rufus' estate and Rufus' son) suggested we take them to New York to see what was on them and see if we were interested in doing something with them. At the Segue Recording Studio we found that the tapes had deteriorated with time and improper storage, so we brought them to Sony Music Studios archiving suite where Andreas Meyers (who the master at this) determined that the tapes had to be "baked," a highly technical process whereby old analog tapes are heated in a special oven for 24 hrs and then can be played only once or twice to transfer them to digital files," says label general manager, Steven Goff

Back at our studio Wayne Warnecke mixed them, and then we took them back to Sony for mastering by Three Time Grammy Award Winner, Joseph M. Palmaccio.

The final product is an amazing album on which Rufus shines through as an amazing performer and important part of American cultural history.Purchase it from Amazon

Segue Records is nationally distributed by Nile Rodgers' Sumthing Distribution. The label takes pride in having great PR support from vets like ELizabeth Freund (Beatles Apple label) and moves anywhere from 30 to 50,000 units depending on artist.

"We're a boutique blues and jazz label and had recently signed great jazz guitarist, Gil Parris, previously on RCA," adds Goff.


My Point of View
HeadsUp (HUCD3104 UPC: 0-53361-3104-2-4)

Pioneer of the 'rhythm and jazz' movement of the '80s that helped define the contemporary jazz scene, is set to release MY Point OF View on August 23. The saxophonist's Heads Up debut features guest vocalists Will Downing and newcomers Lomon Andrews and Sisaundra. Other session personnel include keyboardists James Lloyd from Pieces of a Dream, Rex Rideout and Chris 'Big Dog' Davis
"In my formative years, I would imitate people like Grover Washington, Charlie Parker or John Coltrane or Hubert Laws, but all of it gets filtered through my own sensibilities. At the end of he day, I still sound like Najee, and the music you hear is from My Point of View."


Six Feet Under
Everything Ends

Music is as integral a part of the show as the scripts or actors. Everything Ends is a stunning look at the richly crafted marriage of song and cinema that has become synonymous with Six Feet Under.
The soundtrack boasts a diverse and exciting selection of artists from Oscar Peterson to Black Toast Music in HBO series Six Feet Under's previous seasons. Look for exclusive tracks created just for the upcoming fifth and final season -- from some of music's hottest acts, including CAESARS, THE ARCADE FIRE and INTERPOL, as well as a new exclusive track from JEM.

Hail Heil Sound
Affordable, Natural-sounding, Dynamic Microphones
Now Available through TransAudio Group

l-r: Sarah and Bob Heil of Heil Sound with Brad Lunde, president of TransAudio Group, their distribution partner; Joe Walsh using GM Pro

What do Celine Dion, Janet Jackson and Erykah Badu have in common? They are all clients of TransAudio Group, the premier high-end audio product distributor and importer who recently added Heil Sound to its choice line.

Heil Sound's innovative Proline microphones are the brainchild of industry legend Bob Heil, who has developed a series of affordable, natural-sounding, dynamic microphones that outperform, not only the many cheap condensers flooding the U.S. market but also, industry standard models that cost many times more. The mics are in stock and ready to ship. Formal introduction will be at the 119th AES Convention in NYC, Booth #851.

Heil Sound's professional grade PR 20, PR 30 and PR 40 have been developed for broadcast, recording and live sound applications over the last couple of years by Heil, working in close collaboration with his longtime friend, fellow amateur radio enthusiast and musician, Joe Walsh. Heil has been manufacturing quality microphones for the communications and amateur radio markets for over two decades. And has brought that experience to bear on the new Proline models, which combine innovative microphone technology and high-quality components to produce a wide frequency response and excellent transient response with low intermodulation distortion.

Heil attributes the outstanding performance of his PR microphone line to his years of ear training as a protégé of renowned St. Louis-based theater organist Stan Kann, beginning in the 1950s. Heil, who still performs, subsequently put that training to use with Heil Sound, a pioneer in the development of quality, multi-kilowatt performance sound systems during the 1960s. During that period, Heil developed one of the first multi-channel live mixers with Tomlinson Holman, toured with the Grateful Dead and The Who, among many, many others, and, legend has it, supplied Showco with that company's first major PA system.

Bob Heil with Jeff Beck circa 60s

TransAudio Group, recently signed an agreement to distribute Heil Sound's professional line of microphones throughout the United States.

For more info on Heil Sound, please email Brad Lunde, president of Las Vegas ProAudio or Phone (702) 307-2700 or (702) 365-5155 or Fax (702) 314-2764

Las Vegas Pro Audio is the direct sales division of TransAudio Group. It was created to serve as a conduit between extremely busy pro audio professionals and boutique high-end equipment manufacturers. TransAudio Group, founded by industry veteran Brad Lunde, has quickly become the premier U.S. importer/distributor for high-end audio.

TransAudio Group's product lines include A-Designs (USA) AEA ribbon microphones (USA), ADT Toolkit, AEA, ATC Loudspeakers (UK), Brauner microphones(Germany), Drawmer (UK), Geoffrey Daking & Co.

The Master Imagician
Branding A Madonna

R: Madonna With Geldof at Live8 and a new photo taken for the July issue of LHJ

Madonna may have not made Hilburn's top 20 Pop Elite list (Sunday Times Calendar 7.24), dominated by Usher and Keys (top music execs interviewed put their bets on today's top entertainers), but she takes the lead when it comes to reinvention and longevity. Her latest magazine cover in the July issue of Ladies Home Journal is probably the least likely place one would expect to see the Queen of Pop. Sexy, Fun, Alluring, Shocking...demure wife and mother living in the countryside a la Martha Stewart?

Yup, Madonna is at it again. She may have come full circle with her images but as soon as she settles her fans into believing the perfect image for a Madonna, voila comes the surprise!
Hands down, this master magician is the Pop Diva who has no rival. And she invented the Golden Rule: REINVENT. The quality often lacking from most of the artists on Hilburn's list (the hope is that these top contenders will manage to stay in the game for 10 years or more), that is if their label bosses care for longevity or they themselves can hold jobs for that long.
Meantime, Madonna is always in charge of her calculated branding that somehow stays true to who she is in the many phases of her colorful life and career. Perhaps good artists know that it's not about lists, awards or even sales...it's about how long you can keep your fans wanting more and still manage to have FUN. Lady M, Strike A Pose!

Back to School With Train's Drummer
Going Online at Berkleemusic.com

Interview by Susan Gedutis Lindsay
Intro and photo by Mr. Bonzai

Scott Underwood in the studio

Since their 1994 formation in San Francisco, the group Train has grown steadily as a locomotive force in music. By 2000, their debut, self-titled album had gone Platinum. The band's second album, Drops of Jupiter, appeared in 2001, also going Platinum, with the single "Drops Of Jupiter (Tell Me)" spending 53 weeks on the Hot 100 and earning a Grammy as the Best Rock Song of the year. My Private Nation was released in 2003, firmly establishing Train as one of the premiere rock bands of the new millennium. The song "Ordinary" from Spiderman II further burnished the band's impact in the music world.

Train is currently in the writing and pre-production mode for their much anticipated fourth album. The band's talented drummer/composer Scott Underwood has been studying online at Berkleemusic.com and has incorporated his new skills into the interactive Internet mode of Train's collaborative composition style. In addition, Underwood has teamed up with Train's bass player Charles Colin (a Berklee grad) to form the experimental two-man group called Foodpill.

Scott Underwood Interview:

"When Train is in the midst of promoting a record, I'm on tour most of the time. It's relentless. I'm a self-taught musician, but I always wanted to learn music properly. I want to be better, every day. Unfortunately, I can't take time off from Train to go to Berklee. Therefore the online courses were perfect. I could just take the school with me all over the country. With just a MIDI keyboard and a laptop, I took three courses-Music Theory, Pro Tools, and Berklee Keyboard Method-in one semester. It was so fulfilling. Sometimes when you're on tour, the days are just really slow. Berkleemusic courses helped me to fill them with meaning.

I have absolutely been able to apply the things I've learned online to Train records. The Berklee Keyboard Method was extremely stimulating. I would start out working on simple concepts like chord inversions, and I would skirt away from the assignment, and end up working on a song for a few hours. In the Pro Tools class, we'd have to compose something for every assignment. I'd be working on an assignment and end up writing a piece of music. A lot of the music I've written in the Berkleemusic courses has contributed to the songs on the next Train record.

At first, I was skeptical about whether I was going to learn something online. I wondered how you would deal with your professors, and how you would learn. It seemed like it would be very isolated and weird, but once I started, I discovered it was a great thing. It's almost like school's open 24 hours a day. It was surprising how well it worked out-how convenient it was and applicable to what I'm doing professionally.

My professors were very responsive and the relationship felt personal. Paul Schmeling was really great, and knew my strengths and would encourage me in areas I needed to work on. We correspond by e-mail and it feels like normal dialog. With my Pro Tools professor Dave Franz, after the classes were over, I asked him if he would check out my newest CD with my side project, Foodpill. That recording is really an extension of the work I did on keyboard and synthesizers in the Berkleemusic classes. Foodpill (www.foodpill.net) also came out of learning how to manipulate music using Pro Tools, and all of the great tricks and tools that make music really innovative.

Next, I'm taking the Future of Music and the Producing Music with Reason courses. With the climate of the music industry right now, Train is looking for new, interesting ways to get ourselves out there. Even our record company, Columbia, who's one of the biggest in the world, is struggling with the same idea. A lot of musicians are finding the rewards of independent self-promotion. I think Berkleemusic is going to really help me in that area. I'm really looking forward to that."

Berkleemusic's fall semester enrollment ends on September 15th. For more information visit www.berkleemusic.com, or call 1.866.BERKLEE to speak with an admissions advisor.

Designing For Composers
Zimmer, Newton Howard, Walden and Morgan Enlist studio bau:ton & nonzero\architecture

Walden Studio Plans

studio bau:ton
and its design entity nonzero\architecture, are currently working on several facilities for well known film and TV composers.

In Santa Monica, another room is being added to renowned film composer James Newton Howard's facility, which was originally designed by studio bau:ton in 1996.

A few blocks down the street, 'Batman'-collaborator with Mr. Howard, Hans Zimmer, a highly esteemed composer, is also expanding and renovating his multi-room studio complex, Media Venture, with the help of nonzero\architecture.

Meanwhile, high in the Santa Monica Mountains, a residential studio building is being planned for Big Band leader and film/TV composer Chris Walden, whose work is known in the US as well as in his native Germany.

Mark Morgan, currently composing music for TV's 'One Tree Hill', has also engaged the bau:ton/nonzero team for the build-out of his personal studio in Malibu, to be completed later this year.

And in the East, Dave Matthews Band drummer Carter Beauford is putting the finishing touches to his personal studio, also designed by studio bau:ton. The facility is intended for film and TV scores as well as for music rehearsals and recording.

nonzero\architecture and studio bau:ton's expertise with audiovisual facilities and its fresh approach to architectural challenges are key factors in the successful designs for these complex and multifaceted projects. Previous projects for the film music community include the Fox Newman Stage, studios for Patrick Williams, Dieter Meier, David Newman, and screening rooms for Disney and David Lynch among many others.

Hugh Masekela Records Live at Bernie Grundman's

New Album is Debut for Straight Ahead Records

l-r: Bernie Grundman, Hugh Masekela, and Stewart Levine.
Photo by David Goggin

Hugh Masekela recorded his new album, Almost Like Being in Jazz, in the spacious lounges of Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios. The live album, produced by Stewart Levine, was simultaneously recorded to two-track analog tape and high-resolution 24-bit 96K digital, in much the same way as the great direct-to-disk recordings of the past.

The new album is the debut release from Straight Ahead Records, formed by renowned producer Stewart Levine and mastering engineer Bernie Grundman. Levine first worked with Masekela on "Grazing In The Grass", which topped the charts in 1968 and eventually sold four million copies worldwide. Levine and Grundman have been mastering albums and working together since 1975.

"We started this record label," explains Levine, "because we share a passion for the great sounding records of that Golden Age of Recording, the late 1950's." Bernie Grundman adds, "Our signal path uses a unique shared electronic circuitry that enables us to use multiple microphones, but with less overall electronics than with two. The signal goes direct to separate computers for high resolution and standard CD formats and to our analog tape machines for making vinyl. The recordings are truly for the discriminating audiophile."

The album is available both as a 2 LP set mastered by Bernie Grundman on an all-tube cutting system and pressed on Classic Records 200g Super Vinyl Profile and as a Dual Disc containing CD quality audio on one side and high resolution 24/96 quality audio on the flip side Bernie Grundman Mastering 323.465.6263

ATC Atop Miles' Penthouse Studio

Italian eclectic producer/DJ Robert Miles put together one of the biggest hits of the nineties with his monster single "Children," and was rewarded with a Brit Award in 1997. Several albums and identities later, he is now permanently residing in London, and has put the finishing touches on a new private recording studio, where he is starting work on his new solo album. Describing himself as a '360-degree composer/producer,' Miles is also DJ-ing regularly, producing for his own label S:alt Records, (www.saltrecords.com) and composing music for advertising and film projects.

From its penthouse location, the studio has spectacular views over the city. Alongside the signature wood panel finishes from designers, Recording Architecture, the room is dominated by stand-mounted ATC SCM100 three-way studio monitors, continuing a theme from Miles' previous studio in west London, which featured the larger ATC SCM300s.

Robert was introduced initially to ATC monitors by Roger D'Arcy of Recording Architecture, who also created the design for the earlier studio. "So many systems sound good when you play the music loud, but not as good when you work at low volume. ATC monitors maintain the quality sound at low levels and don't have any coloration. What you hear is the truth."

Although his priority is his solo project, Robert Miles welcomes many collaborators to his studio, including Bill Laswell, Nitin Sawhney, Trilok Gurtu, Jon Thorne and Robert Fripp, with whom he is planning an album, and producing new material for up and coming artists.

A 'digital domain' user for eight years, his minimalist studio is designed around a MAC G5 double processor, Digidesign HD192kHz audio interface + Pro Logic Pro 7 system, with copious quantities of plug-ins, "all to simulate the analogue sound. I love the digital domain for its limitless options, and try to get what I want through a combination of digital mixing and processing/mastering with analogue machines to warm up the sound. Today all you need to mix is a powerful computer, an audio/midi interface like Pro Tools/Logic and as many plug-ins as you can get."

For more info on ATC monitors, please email Brad Lunde, at Las Vegas Pro Audio or Phone (702) 307-2700 or (702) 365-5155 or Fax (702) 314-2764

The readers of CCM magazine have also voted Sanctus Real “Best New Artist.” More information on the band can be found at www.SanctusReal.com.

The energetic, pop-punk band Superchic[k] continues its genre-busting journey with recent release, Beauty From Pain. The album, featuring the No. 1 radio hit, “Pure,” showcases Superchic[k]’s unique, new wave/rock sound coupled with positive, uplifting lyrics. The band has gained further critical acclaim through exposure in various movie, commercial and TV soundtracks, most recently with Disney’s Ice Princes and Stuart Little 3. Superchic[k] is currently traveling the summer festival circuit. New singles, “Anthem” and “We Live,” are at radio now. More information can be found at www.superchickonline.com.

For additional information on Pillar, the limited edition CD/DVD, and a complete itinerary of upcoming events, visit www.pillarmusic.com or www.flickerrecords.com.

GRAMMY Award-winning Audio Adrenaline kicks into fall, headlining its “Until My Heart Caves In” 20-plus-city major market tour. The band is touring in support of their highly anticipated, ninth studio album, Until My Heart Caves In, releasing on ForeFront Records August 30. Take a full throttled blast of musical passion, meld it with a compassionate desire to impact the world at large and add members’ rock-solid grounding in reality with their vulnerable, no holds barred songwriting and the results comprise what fans can expect from Audio Adrenaline’s nucleus. Thanks to earnest performances and undying appreciation for its fans, the group has sold over three million records and racked up 18 No. 1 singles. Add in an RIAA Certified Gold sales award and the prestigious “CCM Song of the Decade” crowning in the 90s (“Big House”), and Audio Adrenaline has consistently proved its relevance, artistry and heart. The band is also well known for its humanitarian aid, launching the Hands and Feet Project that is dedicated to helping orphans in Haiti. More information on the band can be found at www.AudioA.com.

The most anticipated album of the year is on the way! Gospel Music Association's 2005 Artist of the Year, Switchfoot, is poised to release Nothing is Sound on September 13. “Stars”, the first single from the album, will hit radio in late June. Nothing is Sound, is the San Diego band’s follow up to the breakthrough album The Beautiful Letdown, which has sold over 2.5 million records. Catch Switchfoot this summer as they perform at four of the season’s biggest festivals (Creation, Cornerstone, Alive and Sonshine). The DualDisc featuring the entire album in 5.1 Surround Sound offers exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the band on-the road and in the studio. The band wound up recording parts of the album in unfamiliar locales as far away as South Africa, and other parts as close to home as one can get--Foreman's San Diego bedroom. Steven Miller (Andy Narell to Backstreet Boys) engineered for John Fields, who produced The Beautiful Letdown, oversaw the sessions and put them all together for Nothing Is Sound. "If you can combine the more-professional-sounding elements with the honesty of doing it yourself, those are the best records," Foreman asserts. "They're honest and pure but listenable."

Le Mobile GML

Guy Charbonneau's Le Mobile GML-dominated rack from a recent Josh Groban show.

Le Mobile is one of the most in-demand remote recording trucks in the country thanks to its long established reputation for offering only the highest quality sound for the past . But while owner Guy Charbonneau has invariably relied on his highly customized classic Neve analog console to provide EQ when necessary, he recently broke with tradition and installed a GML 8200 dual-channel, five-band parametric equalizer alongside his dynamics processors and effects gear.

Charbonneau was familiar with the George Massenburg Labs GML 8200, of course, as the equalizer has become an industry standard since its release twenty years ago. "Over the years we would rent it," recollects Charbonneau, who went into business with the award-winning Le Mobile more than thirty years ago. "But I think my appreciation for the GML 8200 came on the first Josh Groban project that we did, maybe four years ago." The experiences recording with Groban prompted Charbonneau to try the EQ unit again on another project. "I did a show with Shelby Lynn, using the Design FX truck. I said to Scott [Peets, Design FX recording director], bring me a GML. I'm going to use it on the overheads. I used it with GML preamps and a pair of [Neumann] TLM 170 microphones. I liked what it did." "We ended up buying one," he continues. "It's in the rack and I'm proud to have it.

According to Charbonneau, Gattica is a regular user of the GML 8200, using the equalizer on the key main vocal and overhead input channels. "With Humberto, I normally do the setup and the soundcheck and EQ everything. When I do a show with him I call Westlake and order a GML EQ and a Boulder preamp for the vocal chain. Same with the overheads; it's a pair of GMLs and TLM 170s and a good set of preamps. Humberto will sit at the console and just tweak the GML. He'll rarely change anything else.

Charbonneau is constantly busy producing music for CD, DVD 5.1 surround, motion picture soundtracks, internet and television music specials with Le Mobile, and is currently mixing a DVD of the Austin City Limits Festival.
Over the years, Le Mobile has built up an enviable client list, including solo artists such as Eric Clapton, Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Rod Stewart, Roger Waters and Sting, plus bands such as The Rolling Stones, U2, Aerosmith, The Grateful Dead, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and many, many others.

From Russia With Love

Most of us are familiar with the image of Russian spies in 007 movies or Baryshnikov on the dance floor, but when it comes to the next female alt/pop singer/songwriter...say DA (yes) to MarinaV!
Her well received acoustic shows in and around LA and Orange County club circles are making noise. One of her songs, “Simple Magic” (co-written with guitarist Nick Baker) has been recently added to EuroHits channel of DMX, satellite & cable broadcaster with worldwide daily listening audience of 80 million. She was recently featured in the Keyboard Magazine, which called her "one of the most promising singer/songwriters of the year". She has also been named as one of the HOT 100 Unsigned Artists by Music Connection and is a proud recipient of the ASCAP popular award for 2003-2004. Marina's songs can be heard on MTV (the Real World), films and radio stations such as XM Satellite Radio. The twenty-four year-old chanteuse is officially endorsed by AUDIX microphones, Peavey products and YAMAHA digital pianos.

Marina grew up in Moscow singing and making up her own melodies before she could talk. Influenced by the Beatles and Tchaikovsky, Marina's style is a mix of Tori Amos and Liz Phair with compelling vocals and writing that could be developed into something very unique.
After sending hundreds of demos to the music industry, Marina caught attention of manager David Krebs who's been involved in careers of Don McLean, Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Aerosmith, among others. Earlier in April, Marina released “Simple Magic”, with two songs on the CD produced by Jack Douglas (John Lennon, George Harrison, Aerosmith). The new cd is comrpised of songs written and arranged by Marina who plays keyboards and guitar. Another thing this girl has going for her is her drive...she even offers fans Russian Chocolates at each show! Looking forward to the next release, Marina!

Of Piracy and Plundering
Hosted by EIBC and Century City Chamber of Commerce

Entertainment Industry Business Council (a collaborative partnership between the Century City, Los Angeles, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills Chambers of Commerce) & Century City Chamber of Commerce hosted a luncheon on June 30th at the House of Blues. The main dish: Piracy and the plundering of the entertainment industry.

Moderated by Hollywood Reporter's Robert Dowling who believes that we haven't personalized piracy, the Panelists included: Glen Ballard, Grammy winning producer/songwriter (best known for his triumphs producing Alanis Morissette's multi-Platinum Jagged Little Pill --more than 28 million sold), Dean C. Garland, VP and Director, Legal Affairs, Worldwide Anti-Piracy, Motion Picture Association of America, Chief George Gascon, Los Angeles Police Department Henry Kupperman, J.D., C.F.E. Senior Managing Director, Kroll and Representative, Recording Industry Association of America

Motion Picture Association of America and its international counterpart, the Motion Picture Association, estimate that the U.S. motion picture industry loses in excess of $3 billion annually in potential worldwide revenue due to off-line piracy activities and Internet losses (China mentioned as one of the bigger culprits) are further causing untold additional damages to the industry. Billion dollar losses from other entertainment product piracy are severely impacting creators, producers, investors and distributors of digital music, electronic gaming, entertainment related merchandise and other online entertainment media.

Most on the panel agreed: Piracy is driving up the investment and profitability risk for entertainment creation and threatening industry job growth. They discussed the latest anti-piracy policies and technologies needed to safeguard the entertainment industry from the plundering of its gold.

Katy Perry
studioexpresso caught up with Glen Ballard who has been developing Katy Perry under her Java label. At the Chamber luncheon Ballard remembered many of his friends who have lost jobs and remained hopeful. The only producer/songwriter on the panel, Glen managed to maintain his sense of humor. "Three things you should never see how they're made: Laws, sausages and albums. All go through a bloody process," says Ballard.

Drums from the Big Room

What do you get when you combine a prolific powerhouse percussionist, a legendary producer/engineer, and a world-class recording studio?
In the case of Sony Media Software's "Drums from the Big Room" - a five-disc loop collection performed by Steve Ferrone and recorded by Greg Ladanyi at O'Henry Sound Studios - you get more killer, original, and royalty-free drum tracks than you can shake a drumstick at.

Bratz Rock!

Starbucks' Music Blend

Chain boosts sales for established and new acts

Starbucks, already the world's largest chain of coffee shops, has emerged as an improbably potent force in the music business, able to resurrect careers, enrage music retailers, and now the company hopes to create new stars. When Concord Records Inc President Glen Barros was considering to sign an Italian pop singer Zucchero, the licensing commitment from starbucks help seal the deal. This was not the first time Borros had worked with the java giant. Last summer, his independent jazz label joined with Starbucks to produce and distribute "Genius Loves Company," a collection of duets between the late Ray Charles and performers such as Norah Jones. Helped by the biographical film, "Ray," and attention about Charles' death, the record sold nearly three million copies - about a quarter at Starbucks stores - and in February won eight Grammys. That performance grabbed the attention of a music industry that has seen sales sink by 13% since 2000. The latest albums by Coldplay and Carole King are now in Starbucks. Two disc by Bob Dylan are due in stores next month.

The chain also offers some exclusives, such as an album by New York rock band Antigone Rising. The CD, which Starbucks co-produced with Warner Music Group Corp.'s Lava Records, has sold more than 70,000 copies - a remarkable start for an unknown group with little radio support and a limited touring schedule. One record exec calls Starbuck "the new cute girl that everyone wants to take to the dance."

In music, the company has been careful to cultivate what its execs call "the Starbucks Sound" - an aesthetic that's recognizable and appeals to mostly adult customers: moderately eclectic, often jazzy, and never noisy enough to disrupt a quiet cup of coffee!

It isn't clear how much money, if any, Starbucks makes from music. Estimates are that music will account for less than 2% of Starbuck's US retail sales of $4.5 billion during fiscal year 2005.

EMI's Mr Quartararo says every time one of his company's releases has been sold at Starbucks, the coffee chain has been among the top four retailers selling it. In some weeks, the chain was responsible for almost 50% of newcomer Amos Lee's total sales, but only 6% of the 1.5 million US sales of Coldplay's new "X&Y." Why do record companies like doing business with the coffee company? For one thing, Starbucks says it shifts unsold CDs to other stores or keeps them in a warehouse if it thinks they can be sold at a later date. For that reason, a well as the scale of its operation, Starbucks often receives favorable wholesale pricing terms. In some cases, Starbucks pays the record company half the suggested retail price, which can mean the equivalent of $3 less than the wholesale price. In a sales environment in which retailers from Amazon to Target routinely discount CD's Starbucks often charges customers close to and in some instances more than the full retail price. Beck's "Guero" album carried a list price of $13.98, while Starbucks sold it for $15.95. But, Starbucks customers who spend an average of $4 per visit to the store on drinks and food, have proved themselves willing to pay full freight for a CD.

Starbucks bought Hear Music for $8million from Don MacKinnon, a young music wonk who had spent hours in his Williams College dorm room mixing tapes of his favorite songs. He later opened stores in San Francisco, Chicago and other cities to sell compilation CDs.

Earlier this year, some music retailers were incensed that Starbucks was given a six-week window beginning last month to exclusively sell the new acoustic version of Alnis Morissette's best selling record, "Jagged Little Pill." In Ms Morissette's native Canada, the country's largest music retailer, HMV Group PLC, pulled her other discs from store shelves in protest. Ms Morissette says she looks forward to continuing a "mutually gratifying relationship with traditional retail outlets" and she'll "also continue to come up with other new and creative ways to share my music."

True For Golffinger

John Feldmann, frontman for the L.A.-based pop-punk-ska band Goldfinger is also a producer, engineer, songwriter, A&R man, guitarist and vocalist who recently outfitted his home-based production facility with TRUE Systems Precision 8 mic preamps.

Originally purchased to help him obtain the guitar sound that he was seeking, the versatile eight-channel TRUE has since proved to be effective in many other applications, including on drum and room mics, according to Feldmann.

A longtime vegan, who somehow also finds the time in his busy schedule to be an ardent animal rights activist, Feldmann admits that he had no idea that Sennheiser distributed microphone preamplifiers. "I was looking to add some color to the guitar and not have it sound too spongy and warm, but still have that good upper mid-range grit to it. TRUE was perfect and exactly what I needed," says Feldmann.

The need to add another mic preamp to his collection came about when he changed his work methods last year, explains Feldmann, who has recorded and produced four albums in his private studio and is about to begin a fifth. "I ditched my Digidesign Control 24, because I don't mix with faders any more. I mix with the mouse in my computer. So I needed something to replace the Control 24's low-end Focusrite mic pres, which were fine for when I was doing demos, and being able to set everyone up and rehearse."

The Precision 8 certainly fit the bill for guitars, but its qualities have also made it perfect for room mics and drum overheads, he says. "I have a couple of Royer mics that I use for room sound and I use the TRUE mic pres for that, and for all the high-end, like the hi-hats and the ride cymbal. I'm using it a little bit on the toms, as well, and I really like it."

Goldfinger's fifth album, "Disconnection Notice," was released on Maverick in February 2005. Playing to an enormous fan base worldwide, Goldfinger racked up 385 shows and a Guinness Book world record in 1996, performing on the Vans Warped Tour and with bands such as the Sex Pistols, No Doubt and Reel Big Fish.

Working with Maverick Records, Feldmann has signed and produced The Used, Goldfinger, Showoff, Unloco, Story of the Year and Mest, also producing Good Charlotte and No Motiv. He has additionally written songs with many of those acts, as well as Ashlee Simpson, and co-wrote Good Charlotte's chart hit, "Anthem."

Luther Vandross

Legendary R&B artist Luther Vandross, whose smooth, silky voice gave soul to songs about life, love and relationships, died at 54. Speaking of the song "Dance With My Father," he once said "It's not just about losing one's father, but about missing someone who is gone -- for whatever reason -- and the longing you feel for that moment in the past when you were together." He'll be missed.


Beyond the Sound Barrier
"There is no such thing as a beginning and no such thing as an end."
-- Wayne Shorter (new Verve release Beyond the Sound Barrier)
