Rad weekend with @hutlett recording an album, @brenken producing and drumming, and @joshrobgwilliam engineering.
Different set up for @mitchbelotmusic yesterday. All strings on the floor, and drums in the isolation room. With some room mics out on the main floor, we can close the doors for a tighter sound or leave them open and have the room mics to pick up a bigger sound. #liveoffthefloor
Today is a GREAT day! First, we receive a second ballot nomination for @ccmaofficial Recording Studio of the Year. Then, we find out that @spencer_cheyne (along with @brettkissel, @kuddstagram, Bart McKay, @mattymckayguitar, and @lukewooten) is nominated for Producer of the Year for his work on WE WERE THAT SONG! Congratulations to everyone who made the second ballot and thank you to everyone who voted for us. What a day for Canadian County Music. 🔥🙌 • #ccmaawards #ccma2018 #ccmanomday
Piano day mic selection. Thanks to @chrisandrewpianoguy for coming down to play, and #MusselwhitePianoServices for keeping our @yamahacanmusic C7 in top shape.
@thewashboardunion spent the weekend rehearsing in the hall before their busy festival season, and took a quick break to record some vocals in Studio A.
@reedshimo in the producer chair this weekend with @openairrockrevival on the floor.
@ilovembf has a very special show happening tonight. A look back on a decade’s worth of music with almost 20 different musicians who were part of the journey. More tickets just released. ilovembf.com for details. • • Song: I Wanna Make It With You Video: @ddg_yyc Series: OCL Studios Take Five
We take pride in being a place where emerging artists can work with some of the best players in the business. Killer session with @cr_sings_ today.
No shortage of groove on this one. Engineer: @joshrobgwilliam Assistant: @brenken Bass: @kuddstagram Drums: @flaviocirillo7 Keys: @crunkadile Artist: @gerrintology
Heavy players + great tunes + tracking live off the floor = 🙏🙌👌
Thanks to the @hhhsrdpsd Rock Band group for stopping by the studio on their Alberta tour! They recorded three songs and spent the day by the pool. ☀️ AND a huge thanks to @leavingthomas who did a private show/q&a for the students. They performed a few LT songs in their show this year, so getting to ask the original performers some questions was an AMAZING experience for them!
Tracked four great tunes with producer @mattymckayguitar today for @brad.sims and @thebenchase.
Happy release day to @georgecanyon! Southside of Heaven went right up to no. 1 on the iTunes Country Chart (next to fellow Canadian @lindsayell)! This album still holds the record for most players we’ve ever had live off the floor!
Congratulations to the 2018 @theprophetsofmusic recipient, @joshsahunta! Josh will go through the program this year, and then record a project at OCL with producer @russellbroom.
🚨 Did you hear that @spencer_cheyne was nominated for the 2018 @breakoutwest Audio Engineering Award? 🙌 #breakoutwest
@spencer_cheyne is back in the studio making beats with @jadamckenziemoore. Jada is the 2017 @stampedetalentsearch winner!
Last week’s vid made it seem like we know what we’re doing... here’s a behind the scenes clip that says otherwise. Click the link in our bio to check out our video on Recording Live Off The Floor. ☝️
Our facility was designed and built for recording Live Off The Floor. @joshrobgwilliam and @brenken chat about what that means, how it affects your session, and why it’s a great way to record your music. Full vid on our Facebook.
Wrapped up recording with @thenortherncoast for album no. 2 this week! Thanks to these guys for some really fun sessions.
Guitar days. #marshallamps #traynoramps #ampegamps
Huge congratulations to our mixing engineer, @spencer_cheyne, who married the love of his life yesterday! We wish him and @annikaliv a lifetime of happiness.
It’s another great #NewMusicFriday! Congratulations to @reubenandthedark on their new album “Arms of a Dream”, and @krissyfeniak on her brand new single, “Mess With Me”. Big congratulations to @georgecanyon who released his new single “Better Off in Love” and shared that his upcoming album, Southside of Heaven, is now available for preorder.
#throwbackthursday to December 2015 when we invited a few friends over, pulled out every mic, and recorded every single drum in the building.
Congratulations to all the 2018 #BreakoutWest nominees, including our very own @spencer_cheyne for Engineer of the Year! We are so excited to see so many of the artists and producers we’ve worked with nominated in categories spanning across the genres. There is so much GREAT MUSIC being made! 🙌
Congratulations to our assistant engineer, @brenken, who married the love of his life yesterday! Brennan surprised his new wife Leah with “All I See Is You”, a song he wrote for her for their first dance. Thank you to everyone who made this song happen! Writers: Brennan, @aaronpollockmusic, @annikaliv, @spencer_cheyne. Players: @russellbroom, @chrisbyrneonbass, @brendanwaterskeys. Engineers: @joshrobgwilliam, @spencer_cheyne.
It’s #newmusicfriday with releases from @devincoopermusic (Nothin’ On You - produced by @spencer_cheyne and @kuddstagram), and @jeremylamontmusic (Mess Me Up - produced by @mattymckayguitar). Available wherever you get your music. Congratulations, guys!
Drum overdubs to end the day off right. Great session with @kuddstagram, @brendanwaterskeys, #benbradley, and a quick visit from @russellbroom. 👌
Form + Function - what we needed was a place to store gear. What we built was a multi-purpose room used for writes, rehearsals, meetings, photoshoots, interviews, demo recordings, and pretty much anything else you can dream up. This is the Egg Room.
Thanks to @sarahonairhighriver and Kevin from @suncountry997 for swinging by today! We love chatting music and community with people who serve theirs as much as these guys do! 🙌 #Repost @sarahonairhighriver (@get_repost) ・・・ @oclstudios are incredible! Thanks to @joshrobgwilliam and Megan for having Kevin and I in today! We can't wait to see what happens this summer! We were brainstorming all the way home!!
