It's been how long since I've updated my website??

Category: Studio Updates Written by

It's been a while since the website has gotten some updates. Not because of the lack of material to write about, or the cool things that have been going on in the industry. On the contrary, this is the age old case of too busy to stop and smell the roses. I have been given the opportunity to work with some pretty amazing people on projects ranging from studio recordings, videos, and live performances here at Waysound. I've scooped up some really amazing gear that has helped bring the quality of my end product up to a level never thought possible. I've also been closely following new and game changing technology that is sure to disrupt many industries for the greater good. Overall, it's a great time to be a creative individual and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Over the next few weeks, I will be hitting the keyboard and playing catch-up on all the amazing stuff that there is to share at Waysound. We'll start with my newest addition, Jake Fontana. Jake Fontana - Studio InternJake has been interning with me for several months now and is an exceptional individual on so many levels. In addition to being a great person, he knows his stuff. From recording, video production, to graphic design, he does it all. Jake also plays guitar, bass, drums, sings, and dabbles in piano. Glad to have him on board!

Tip From A Song Writer - "create simple, and catchy hooks"

Category: Recording Techniques Written by

For me, one of the biggest things with my songs is always trying to be open and honest, lyrically. It’s sort of therapeutic to say things in lyrics that I otherwise wouldn’t say out loud, and I feel like that always makes for a more compelling listen too because it gives people something to connect with. We play pop music, so musically we’re trying to make stuff that's catchy and danceable, so it’s always a challenge to make compelling lyrics but still create simple, catchy hooks and choruses, but I also think that’s part of the fun of it. If you can get an emotional reaction from people while still getting them to dance and sing along, you’re golden.

Tip From A Song Writer - "the truth will always set things in motion"

Category: Recording Techniques Written by

Write a song? Life is a song. Someone loves you, it’s a song. Someone hates you, it’s a song. First write down what happened. Prose. Then, get angry and recognize and allow your feelings to live. When you even out, it will rhyme. Does the song always have to rhyme, no. Do listeners want it to rhyme, most often, yes.
