Getting close to the end of the year. Time for an update. However if you follow the facebook account and posts (www.facebook.com/soundfoundrystudios) you have an idea what has been going on.
BOBBY SPROAT has been hard at work this year on his debut album, approximately half way through at this point, it is coming together quite nicely. You will have not heard any local singer songwriter putting out this type of gem songwriting. DROWN THE NOISE pumped out three more great songs this year, but will be taking a short break, as a congrats is due to SHEEP SQUEEK and DAVE IKONOV on the upcoming birth of the next member of the DROWN THE NOISE family. FOXHART FISHMAN stopped in the studio, and killed it with a live off the floor 9 song set. The release from this fresh new Windsor band was greatly welcomed and is a fabulous listen if you have not taken the time to do so yet. FRESH BREATH BAND also returned to THE FOUNDRY , this time with a revamped lineup of backing players, and oh man the sound. A slight vibe departure from their previous efforts, but still with the focused songwriting, soothing harmonies, and belting soulful vocals. New act HARD WIRED has been hard at work on their first 4 song set of what should be an amazing album set for release in 2016. In the early stages, it is shaping up to be something special. HEARTxHARM spent time at the studio, and Killed... currently in the final mix stages, watch for these 3 songs to have independent releases as individual killer singles in the coming months... lots of passion, energy, and raw emotion here. A long time Essex County favorite, JUSTIN LATAM spent 6 weeks of his summer at the studio, we all hung out BAREFOOT and came up with his album BAREFOOT. Great folk, blues, spiritual, rock, & storytelling abound on this effort from JUSTIN and a stellar cast of guest musicians from the Essex County Music scene. Definately one to pay attention too as this album is fresh off the shelves and should start getting radio play soon ! K tda G or KEVIN GIESBRECHT finally wrapped production of his album after 2 years at the studio slowly putting together this 17 song, inspirational rap album. As a debut new artist, it was a pleasure watching him grow in studio over the past 2 years. NEFIDOVS, oh the NEFIDOVS... Hard at work with 4 solid tracks, Horns are needed, mix is needed, more solid recording session/cookouts are needed. But when it gets to the peoples earholes, oh yes, it will be worth the wait ! Mastered up the latest POUGHBOY album, have you heard it ? If not,,, get on it ! New act RELIEVER hit the studio, with a lineup of seasoned vets from the local scene, this new act will be scaring up some solid attention and shows once these songs hit the streets. 6 tracks of emotion,power,drive,and melody. TAREK JAFAR of the THE BLUE STONES wrapped a completed solo album. Unsure of the release, but man is it great. In the meantime, THE BLUE STONES new album released in OCTOBER has started off on a great path , being a top 3 seller on bandcamp opening week, having a great track BE MY FIRE played loud and proud on MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, and making waves internationally with positive press. TOQUE has almost completed 2 new tracks, that should break through the winter snow for a spring 2016 release . As well, THE LOCUSTS HAVE NO KINGS album , mixed at SOUND FOUNDRY STUDIOS is now in the mastering stage and should see a release date announcement soon. PHEW !!!
Added into all that is work with artists CELLOS (preproduction), BULLET TOOTH TONY (new lineup,new material in tracking stages), KYLER BOND (solo artists with 4 tracks on the go awaiting vox), LIFESTYLES MOVEMENT and MEDARDO IBARRA ( spiritual based hip hop that does not dissapoint), newcomer DYSE ( free form lyric poet hip hop done right) , RYAN MASOTTI (a little something to come), KIM SCHULTZ, OSCARLYN GARCIA, DEREK HEARNS...
MUSIC and ART is so integral to our society, get out and see a show, buy an album or a creation from an artist, support your community, and take a deep breath...

[August 4, 2009 ]
Hope Everyone is enjoying there summer. A POINT IN 7 finally wrapped recording of their 5 songs tracked earlier this year. BLURT has almost completed tracking of their farewell set of 3 songs, but along the way a new group has sprung from the ashes of that group. A great new group yet unnamed has been in tracking and has had some great results thus far, watch for this new group and great material to surface sometime in September. EXPLODE WHEN THEY BLOOM, well this band lives here… they continue work on the follow up cd, and it is very close to being tracked, two more songs need to be added, vocals need to be sung, and of course mixing, but I would expect a fall release. I AM THE VINE stopped by to say hello with some instruments so we hit record and got a stomping set of 5 tunes down. MONOLITH has finalized preproduction and will be stopping in this fall, very exciting indeed. THE ROWLEY ESTATE has been gaining steam since their release recorded here in the spring, these fellas played a great show opening for SwN, and head out on there first tour. THE AFTERPARTY mixed, and added, and tweaked, and packaged and the cd is currently in production, rumour has it hittin the streets mid-september. TRISH WALES had Al Hendry in to record some great guitar work and she herself adding a few vocal touches to her second cd entitled STILL LOOKING. This cd is awaiting mastering then should be available this fall. WHAT WE KNOW was in to record a four song set. One track had guest vocals from Josh Demers of THE AFTERPARTY. In non musical tracking news, MATRIX THERAPUTIC SYSTEMS began tracking a 20 chapter audio book on dealing with Addiction. This book goes deep into the history of addiction, the various forms of addiction, and overcoming addiction. This is sure to be a great resource for people having failed at all the traditional methods of addiction recovery. Here's a list of some equipment upgrades that were made in the studio in the past month. -Purple Audio Inc. MC77 Limiting Amplifier - The MC77 supercedes the MC76 re-engineered 1176 type FET Limiter. The MC77 recreates the audio circuitry of the revision E UREI 1176, using modern components matched to the original. Basically it’s a mono channel of compression, sounds great on vocals and bass guitar, and looks great in a rack in its bold purple color. -Chandler Limited LTD-1 - The Chandler Limited LTD-1 is a hand wired NEVE 1073 clone that has been remade using parts and build techniques from the original manufacture of the modules. Grounding, wiring techniques, original transformers and transistors, and much more attribute to the special sound of these units and have been painstakingly recreated in each LTD-1. In addition to the classic 1073 sound, Chandler LTD. expanded the EQ section by nine additional EQ points giving the user a much larger palate from which to choose your EQ frequency points. Basically an amazing mic pre with an amazing eq.

A POINT IN 7 have almost wrapped recording of 5 songs. The mixes are finished and we are letting them breathe for a week before making our final adjustments. This project has been a lot of fun with a group of really great guys and talented musicians as well, be sure to watch their myspace site for some sneek peeks of the tracks, and get out to a show to hear this great material. ANDREW BATEMAN guitarist/vocalist of THE ECLECTIC CHAIR has been visiting with his new side project band JUST PRESS PLAY. This band is in the early raw stages but have been able to get into the studio to cut two tracks. Yet to play a live show, they should be hitting the stage sometime in April. Once the cast comes off I assume. BLURT. On a sad note this band has called it quits. On a great note, they have been working hard here at SFS on a 3 song farewell disc. It has been amazing working with these guys over the years in studio and this band will be missed. The new recordings are turning out great, in mostly BLURT style, but there will be a few surprises and twists. This material should be released early summer. BOMBS brought there britpop stylings to SFS over the cold winter months and turned out 4 tracks of genuine rock energy. Hailing from Toronto, this band has already been the featured act at many of that cities top clubs. The material is being shopped around to labels, and so far positive things are being said. These guys should be touring late spring early summer and a Windsor stop is planned. So be sure to get out and say to these lads. EXPLODE WHEN THEY BLOOM is holed up in SFS and doing their thing. They got a blogspot where you can follow their every move, check it out at http://explodewhentheybloom.blogspot.com KATIE KERR paid us a short visit and sang four of her original compositions. Great work from a new talent. You may have seen her on the CBC show HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE MARIA ? If you missed her on that, she is performing in many local stage productions so watch out for her name. OAKWOOD COMMUNITY CENTRE will be paying us a visit again this March Break bringing in the many talented and future rockers of Windsor. Last summers visit brought 30 talented kids age 7-13. No word on how many we will be invaded by this time. But a great new song has been provided by SCOTT McMULLEN formerly of THIEVES, MAJORITY D, and now with the new band DEATH OR COMBER. DEATH OR COMBER will be performing with EXPLODE WHEN THEY BLOOM this Friday March 13th at THE COACH. This show is JAMIE GREERï¿½s pick of the week, and a great pick at that. OH YA, JAMIE GREER has an amazing musicians resource for Windsor music scene that can be found at http://jamiesgreer.blogspot.com . It is a must visit. Bands should be sure and pass along all show information and copies of your latest recordings for reviews. This man is truly one of the most supportive artists and backers of the Windsor Scene. So give this guy a round of applause and help the man out by keeping him up to date on Windsorï¿½ s music scene. THE ROWLEY ESTATE, has been hard at work on there first EP. A collection of three songs about .. hmm.. not sure .. but these guys have drive and ambition and a drummer with a hand in a castï¿½ so the recordings will be all you have for a while. Watch their myspace for tracks by April. No word on TYBURN TREE cd release date yet, but rumours have it happening soon. Once again, you will want this disc, the packaging, the content, the passion these guys put into this thing is unmatched. Lastly , just want to note for any artists or groups planning on stopping by SOUND FOUNDRY STUDIOS, we are now carrying music instrument accessories from a few companies. You can now get your strings, picks, sticks, skins, capos, cables, and guitar maintenance supplies, right here in house. So take adavantage of products at fair prices from Dï¿½addario, Planet Waves, Vater, Evans, Dunlop, Ernie Ball, and more. THANKS ALL FOR SUPPORTING THE LOCAL MUSIC SCENE.

Time to update anyone who reads THE SOUND FOUNDRY news page about what we have been doing the last 6 months. It has been a very busy summer for the studio. HOLLOWAY ROBERTS was in to record there first EP. It was self pressed and is selling well. They just recently won a battle of the bands at THE CHUBBY PICKLE playing against alot of great talent, including SOUND FOUNDRY bands, BLURT and THE RUN ATLANTIC. The THE RUN ATLANTIC was selling there first EP so quickly that a follow up was neccesary. Signing a production deal with OAK & LINEN PRODUCTIONS, THE RUN ATLANTIC re-entered the SOUND FOUNDRY and has just released there follow up EP entitled "FRAMED AND ENGRAVED". ACULEUS was in the studio in July and recording there massive guitar and vocal assult that was also self released. The long awaited release of the LUNACY album is also approaching. Cd's are expected in within the week, do not miss getting your hands on this album if you love driving guitar, melodic vocals, and superb modern metal. Also in this past 6 months was BOB DESMARIAS with his power trio, the young but extremely talented SEBASTIAN MEHENKA, GARY STITT from LAST IN LINE visited to do a two song set, DEVIN CHEDOUR to complete 3 more songs, MIKEY JAY to track more material for a highly anticipated debut EP, MARIA CONNEL, NATHALIE OLIVERA, RYAN MEDEL ,DARCYS SCHOOL OF DANCE, and others. Rock outfit THE DROWNING paid the studio a visit in August and recorded there first 4 song EP which was professionally released just last month. New band EXPLODE WHEN THEY BLOOM also hit the studio to demo 4 songs which was released to give fans a taste of what is to come from this new power trio. The current project is BLURT, and all we can say about this album is WOW !!! So until the next update, check www.myspace.com/thesoundfoundry , it will probably be updated often.
