As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been supporting The Key-Lites during their Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for their next album. Last Tuesday the campaign ended and I’m very happy to announce that they exceeded their $7000 goal by almost $1500! Hooray! I felt like I proud parent, haha.

Not being ones to waste any time the band started recording right away. They were in studio all last week. They invited to come check out a session as a way of thanking me for my help.

I was blown away when I first stepped foot into Mixart Studios. The space is so warm and inviting, full of plants and beautiful lighting, tons of musical equipment (obviously), and an ENORMOUS Christmas tree. It’s difficult to get an idea of scale from that photo but you can sort of see the little chair to the left of the tree. The staff was really friendly too – I hope I get a chance to record there one day!

The picture below isn’t necessarily my best work but I wanted but it cracks me up. The band brought a box full of food to the sessions so they could save time by eating in. I love how they had all the major food groups – fruits, veggies, OJ… and a bottle of Jack 😉
