Recording a song, or an album, should be a fun process. So make it easier on yourself and plan out your schedule for recording well in advance. That sounds like obvious advice, but there are too many artists who under-budget for time and wind up either having to cut songs, reduce quality, or delay on promised recordings. Not to mention that you may be under deadlines for grants, contests, or festival applications.

Part of this responsibility is also on the studio you choose, which is the main point of this post: because my schedule can be crazy too! If you’d like to come into Typewriter Studio before the end of the year, you should know that I’ll be on tour with my band (The Young Novelists) from September 10th to 29th in the States, and October 2nd to 15th in Europe. Let’s talk soon about getting your new album scheduled, otherwise you might be releasing the greatest holiday album of all time in the middle of May!

There is another part to this post: touring! The bulk of my band’s touring is booked by me, so if you are an artist who hasn’t done much touring, or hasn’t yet toured outside of Canada, feel free to get in touch and we can sit down and talk about the details and what you need to know before you begin.

Summertime Singles Season

3_vinyl_singles

Vinyl has been making a comeback for about a decade now, slowly regaining ground as a beautiful medium for music, both visually and aurally.  If you’ve ever wanted to hear your music on vinyl it is getting easier and easier to find affordable duplication services to make full-length vinyl and even 7-inch singles.  With that in mind, summer here at Typewriter Studios is singles season!  Record an A-side and a B-side at our studio space for $350 if you’re a full band, or $300 if you’re a singer-songwriter.  Only want to record one song?  That’s just $200 for a full band or $160 for a singer-songwriter!  This deal will last through July and August, and you get as much time as you need to record your songs and receive a final mix.  You also get an engineer/producer and access to all our gear and instruments, from our stately grand piano down to our lowly, hardworking SM58s!

Get in touch today about making an old-school vinyl single for your fans!  Contact graydon@typewriterstudio.com for more info.
