Internationally renowned Producer,
Stuart Price, recently spent time in Studio
C here at Bristol Recording Studios. While on tour in
Massachusetts as pop superstar Madonna's Music
Director, Stuart needed a local place to work on some
new material. He came to Bristol Studios and spent an
afternoon in Studio C with engineering assistant Nick
De Tar-Koch. Stuart collaborated with Madonna on
the track "X-Static Process" featured
on her album 'American Life'. Madonna says "It's
my favourite song of the album because it's only me
with my guitar and I sing all the melodies and the chorus.
I don't know why, but this song reminds me of my childhood...
it's a very simple song." Stuart is pictured
here with the Nord Modular G2, the synth that he is
using on the Madonna tour in progress. At Bristol Studios,
we accommodate every kind of recording scenario from
independent projects to major label production.
Andrew Bernard, aka APB Unknown, came
to Bristol Recording Studios with lyrics to an original
song called "The Word". In Studio C,
Senior Producer Chris Billias worked with Andrew
on developing the music for this song giving it an old
school hip-hop flavor. Andrew wrote this song in the early
eighties, while he was still in high school, only a short
time before the harsh reality of the AIDS virus swept
through the nation. The chorus in this song, "Put
a capper on your zapper before you rap her",
illustrates good humor and advice in intimate situations,
and is also intended as an encouragement to commit to
your partner and see the relationship through. Chris recorded,
mixed and mastered the song, and Bristol videographer
Merlyn Caswell-Mackey recently spent time on location
at Crane's Beach and at the Hong Kong Club, shooting footage
for the upcoming music video.
and owner of 412 Records, Stanley
Porter, was working in Studio C this week with
Senior Producer Chris Billias recording tracks
for his second album titled, "A Spiritual High".
This album will feature 13 tracks, 9 of which will be
songs written by Stanley. The music on this album is a
blend of modern gospel, soul and R&B, which is a bit
different than the sound on Stanley's first album, "No
Turning Back" which featured aggressive rap and
hip-hop tunes and which was also recorded at Bristol Studios
with Engineer Roger Sherman. Stanley says "This
new project is much more musical. Since my last record,
I've improved as a vocalist, as a musician and I've worked
with many musicians and have done more live performances.
Now people are starting to realize that I can play music,
not just produce music." The plan for this album
is to bring in more voices for certain tracks and to give
dimension to the work as a whole. The challenge in this
second release is to not lose the hip-hop crowd.
album is not going to be as aggressive as the last one,
and I am not ashamed". When asked why Stanley
came back to Bristol Recording Studios, he had this to
love it here. That's why I'm here again. It really is
nice to come here where everybody knows your name. I feel
like I've been embraced. I'm working now with a different
engineer, but this is a much different album, and Chris
pushes me to do it right, which has been liberating. I
enjoy working with Chris because of his knowledge of music
and his eye to spot things technically questionable. I
think the project will be great because of that. Chris
is technical, but also creative, and he speaks my language!
Chris has style, flare, and some of his suggestions have
really opened up several of my arrangements. He is the
perfect blend between discipline and creativity, and he
has a great sense of humor."
Bristol recording client, Bryce
Aubry was recently in Studio B working with
Senior Producer Chris Billias finishing the final
mix on his new self titled three song demo featuring
original songs "Surrogate Friday",
"Seven Days", and "Take Things
as They Come". This project was recorded, mixed
and mastered by Chris in addition to producers Ric
Poulin and Viktor Kray. This recording features
Bryce on guitar and vocals, Perry Yeldham on
bass, Jim Masdea (formerly of rock band Boston)
on drums, and Bryce and Ric on piano and keyboards.
Bryce is a prolific singer/songwriter who has perfected
a craft for no-nonsense guitar driven American rock.
At 19 years of age, he writes with a youthful and energetic
perspective. His influences include Bruce Springsteen
and U2 and he believes that rock needs to be loud again.
Currently, Bryce is touring in Europe, and will return
to New York City in the fall for the debut of his album
"Happy Hour". Check out Bryce's website
Carol Young and Kerry
Bernard of Young/Hunter Management were recently
here at Bristol Recording Studios taking an engineering course
through the Cambridge Center for Adult Education. Carol has
been managing artists for over 15 years. Currently, she represents
several songwriters including Chris Smithers who has
played in Boston at the Orpheum Theatre and has toured in Australia,
Japan, Canada, much of Western Europe and New Zealand. Carol
says that this course helped her to get the basics of recording,
to get insight into how live sound works, as well as to firm
up her recording vocabulary.
Congratulations and applause to Senior Producer
Chris Billias for his extraordinary performance skills
which earned him the title of "Lord of the Keyboards".
John Edwards, an old friend of Chris', recently opened a
music store in Wells, Maine. Chris tells the story. "[John]
called me and said that Korg was sponsoring a contest, "The
Lord of the Keyboards", and said I should come down and
check it out. I went there and along with 100 or so other people,
we first listened to a presentation on the Korg family of products
delivered by Bob Nelson." Then the contest began. Much
like American Idol, there were three judges (two from Korg and
one local producer) who voiced their opinions after each performance.
Chris had only three minutes to play and wow the judges.
"Judging was based on technical ability, stage presence,
originality of the performance and familiarity with the keyboard.
I played a bit of classical, rock, funk, R&B and swing in
my three minutes and won the competition. I am now the proud
owner of a Korg Triton LE!". It's no wonder that Bristol
recording clients rave about Chris' production work, he is truly
the Lord of the Keyboards.
Bristol Recording Client, Michelle
McGruder is currently making a difference in the
Boston area voting community as the site coordinator for this
year's Hip-Hop Summit, presented by Russell Simmons
and the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (www.hsan.org).
On Monday, January 26th at the Reggie Lewis Track & Athletic
Center in Roxbury, artists such as P. Diddy, Wyclef,
Twista, Mase, Reverend Run and Jada-Kiss along with
others, met with members of the community to stress the vital
importance of voting and being an active, vocal member of society.
BET, MTV and CNN covered this monumental event.
Admission to this event could only be obtained either with a
voter registration card or by volunteering to educate and register
community members. Through Black Ice Promotions, a company
Michelle started, which promotes Boston acts around the country,
Michelle met Cindy Diggs of UMMF (Us Making Moves
Forever), a company bringing Hip-Hop acts to the Bayside
Expo Center. Through Cindy, Michelle got involved in the Hip-Hop
Summit Action Network, and from an office at the First Church
of Roxbury, she was able to coordinate the voting registration
and education of over 3,000 people. When she was last in the
studio, Michelle worked with Producer Ric Poulin, on
recording a demo of her original song "Hold Up Hold
||Bristol Engineer Victor
Kray has been working with folk rock soloist Emmy
Cerra on recording, mixing and mastering her
latest CD, Metamorphic, which will prove that good
music doesn't have to mean big record companies. Emmy
wrote all the lyrics and music, and plays all instruments
on this album. Her style is a powerhouse of feeling, creativity
and emotion. Emmy started writing music on her grandmother's
Casio at age 7. Over the years, that love of music continued
to deepen as she picked up numerous talents including
such instruments as the guitar, the bass, the harmonica,
percussion and vocals.
Emmy has set out to prove that an artist can be in charge
of all aspects of their own music and be successful at
doing so. Her songs "Be Silent" and "You
Had Me" have received net-play on Nette Radio,
and as 'Nette says "Emmy's knack for lyric, catchy
melodies, and soulful voice make a package that is hard
to resist. She is fantastic." Be sure to watch
the shelves for the release of her new album, Metamorphic,

|Rising vocalist, Amy
Famiglietti has been extremely busy here at
Bristol Recording & Voice Studios! Amy is currently
studying the pop/gospel/R&B vocal method with sought
after vocal coach Ric Poulin, as well as spending
time in the studio working with producer Chris Billias
recording the second song on her four song demo. Amy wrote
the lyrics to this new song, called "Too Late",
and Chris produced the music. "Too Late" is
an up-tempo, pop/R&B tune, and is developing into
a dynamic contrast to her first song, "Sometimes",
a slow, dark song about times when you can be surrounded
by people but still feel lonely, and about how during
those times it's important to find happiness within. "Sometimes",
which Amy recently performed at the Bristol Voice Student
Showcase, is up on Amy's new website,
www.amyfam.com, which was created by Bristol designer
Merlyn Caswell-Mackey. "Too Late" will
be up on her site next month. Amy came to Bristol Studios
through the John Robert Powers Modeling Academy
back in the summer of '03, and has been studying with
Ric since then. "Ric
is the wisest man I've ever met. He's drastically changed
my voice in the short time that I've been studying here.
Before I came to study with him, I couldn't sing in full
voice. I was classically trained and sang all of my high
notes in a head voice. Now I have a pretty high range
in full voice, and I have learned how to use whisper.
Ric has also helped me with my performance. Now when I
go on stage, I feel natural and my legs don't shake any
more. The open mic nights and the Student Showcases that
Bristol has put on have also been a great help."
Between her vocal coaching and studio work, Amy has found
time to take the Recording Workshop for Vocalists,
taught by Ric Poulin, and to come on board with Bristol
Entertainment as the newest promotional intern. "I
want to take my career to the next level, and I have seen
how far Jada has
come, so I want to learn first hand how it's done."
||A Capella Mania!!
BU's only Jewish a cappella group, Kol
Echad (which in Hebrew means "One Voice"),
has recently spent time in the studio with engineer Stuart
Grove recording new material due for release in 2005.
Previously, Kol Echad recorded a compilation of Israeli
pop music and traditional Jewish and Yiddish songs, including
a medley of the songs "Close Every Door,"
and "Go Go Joseph" from the hit play
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Kol
Echad has toured around Boston, Houston, Canada, and Upstate
NY, performing at various synagogues, elementary schools,
high schools, and other such venues. When asked about
their experience at Bristol they said: "The people
are unbelievable to work with and have helped make this
a great experience. They've been very professional and
accommodating. I would definitely recommend the studio
to others." For anyone interested in purchasing
the latest Kol Echad album or learning more about the
group, visit their web site at www.kol-echad.com.
Members of Brandies Company B,
recently stopped into Bristol Recording Studios to pick
up the finished product of their latest CD entitled
"Company B: Almost Legal". This 20th Anniversary
recording, features such songs as "Killing Me
Softly", "Happy Together" and
"Don't Go Breaking My Heart". Company B
is a coed a capella performing group, founded in 1984
and is the oldest performing group at Brandies University.
The style of the music on this album focuses mainly on
pre-80's, old school rock. Company B will be selling this
recording at future shows and through their website, http://people.brandeis.edu/~cob/.
"We really did love working as a group in your
studio. We loved your studios and we loved working with
"Will Sing for Food" is the working title
of the latest Pointercounts
CD which was recorded, mixed and mastered here at Bristol
Studios by producer Chris Billias. The
Potsdam Pointercounts, an all male a cappella
group from The Crane School of Music at the State
University of New York in Potsdam, traveled to Boston
to make this new recording featuring 14 tracks which include
"Here Without You" by 3 Doors Down, "Come
on Eileen" by Save Ferris, as well as some originals
and new creations like "Canon in a Basket"
a mix of Pachebel's Canon and Green Day's "Basketcase".
The current president of the Pointercounts,
Justin Glodich, had this to say, "The
Pointercounts decided to work with Bristol Studios for three
reasons. First, The Pointercounts recorded at Bristol Studios
back in 99-00, and the quality of that recording was amazing.
Since then, the group has raised enough money through performances
and CD sales to come back to Bristol. Second, two former members
of the Pointercounts, Brian Orvek and Craig Burger, currently
work at Bristol Studios, and lastly, one of our members raved
about Chris Billias and the work he had done on the 99-00 recording,
and we thought it would be great to work with him again. For
most of us, this was our first experience recording in a studio,
and I thought it was an amazing experience. Chris Billias is
an amazing producer and just a great guy in general. As president,
I was one of the few who was able to sit in the control room
with him and get an idea of what was going on. We explained
to him what we were looking for in our sound, and he brought
that to us. His approach on how he recorded everything was effective,
and for my first recording experience, it was nice to have someone
like that being there to help you out."
The Pointercounts had only three days to record. In 24 hours,
they were able to accomplish recording all 14 songs, most of
which contained vocal percussion, 4 part harmony, soloists,
and occasional layered fills by backup vocalists. Right now,
Chris is busy mixing their CD, and they are looking forward
to having it duplicated and ready for sale by fall. Upcoming
performances include the Annual A# Invitational (the
A#'s are the female a capella group at Potsdam) and a winter
tour on Long Island. The Pointercounts have dedicated themselves
to putting on a high energy, creative show that engages its
audience in many ways. In their live shows, they demonstrate
musical ability, natural stage presence, and a commitment to
hard work. Their repertoire varies greatly, covering many styles
from barbershop to modern rock. They cover well known rock tunes
from bands such as The Beatles, Ben Folds, 3 Doors Down, U2,
the Barenaked Ladies, Boyz II Men, Foo Fighters, and many others.
Almost all material that theCounts perform is arranged
by their members. For more information about the Pointercounts,

ProTools Expert and Educator Viktor Kray
was recently working in Studio V with two members from MIT

Bristol voice student & recording client
Keith Capozzi has a sound which is soulful, passionate
and edgy. He has been playing and writing music since his early
teens, and is known for his catchy melodies, passionate lyrics,
and songs which are very emotional and energetic. His songwriting
skills have earned him involvement with the Global Partnership
on AIDS & Orphans, in association with the Pan African
AIDS Intervention Foundation, on a movement entitled Slow
The Wave which should prove to be a monumental global AIDS
relief project. Keith has written a song called "Slow
the Wave", which is essentially the anthem for this
movement. All together, this is an initiative to bring knowledge
and awareness to African communities, a cultural intervention
where communication is achieved through music. Before Keith
wrote "Slow the Wave", he researched the plight of
many African communities, hundreds of orphaned children and
countless families with no means, no medicine and no hope. The
movement, Slow The Wave, intends to do just that, slow the spread
of the AIDS virus by encouraging a positive change in attitudes
and actions of members of African communities. Keith states
his musical influences as Tom Waits, Bruce Springsteen
and U2 and it so happens that U2 front man, Bono,
is heavily involved in AIDS relief and will receive a copy of
Keith's song. Keith is studying the Pop/Rock/R&B Vocal Method
with Senior Vocal Coach Brent Barlow. Keith says "Bristol
Studios has given me a lot of confidence. Ric told me "You
have it, you will go somewhere with music, you have the chance."
That boosted my self confidence immensely. Brent, my voice teacher,
improved my vocals 100%. A few months ago I was not even close
to where I am now." For more info about Keith check

Hancock Hall in Boston. Other performers included Bad
Boy Entertainment NESS
from MTV's Making the Band, Bostons own diva
featuring an awesome performance by hip-hop dance troupe Off
The Curb, and Bristol recording clients, r&b phoenonema,

fashion showcase began three years ago after CEO Frank
B. sought to provide a high-profile venue for Bostons
many talented up and coming designers and entertainers.
I knew so many talented people in the area and felt
there was a real void in terms of opportunities for them to
show what they can do, said Alex Clarke,
President. Im thrilled at the success weve
had and at where well be in the future. Its also
nice to be able be operating at a high-enough level to be
able to give something back to the community, as were
doing this year by donating part of the proceeds to Avons
Breast Cancer Crusade. The fashion showcase has
become one of Bostons most talked about annual urban
fashion events and is quickly establishing Organized Gear
as a national trendsetter in high quality apparel, amusement,
social events and entertainment options for urban audiences
and beyond. This year's fashion was provided by EVERISSE,
Mohini by Krystal, Urban Gurl, and Andy
Jacques. Organized Gear Entertainment has also provided
fashion and entertainment services in Atlanta, New York, Florida
as well as California. Organized Gear is a community-based

OF THE MONTH:
|This month's interview is
with Andrea Gerák,
a successful professional vocalist from Hungary. She attended
a weekend Vocal Seminar in Hungary delivered by
Ric Poulin, creator the Pop/Gospel vocal method
taught at Bristol Voice Studios. Andrea had her first
stage performance at the age of 5. Since her youth, she
has been dancing and singing with several folklore groups
in Hungary, including the Borsod, Avas Csepel
and Bartók dance ensembles. Often she was
the featured solo singer and/or dancer. Today Andrea is
heavily involved in singing. She is known for singing
Hungarian folk songs, performing without accompaniment
or with electronic instruments. Her repertoire also includes
a variety of styles like pop, rock, jazz and musical tunes.
Bristol: What did
you think about the weekend vocal seminar you attended
with vocal coach Ric Poulin?
There were a few pro singers there, as well as people
who simply liked to sing and also some beginners who were
dreaming of the day they will dare to sing and others
wouldn't escape from hearing them. A big part of the seminar
was about rehabilitating the ability and the willingness
in a person to sing. It gave us a clear view on this:
why is it so, that a little kid loves to sing and he CAN,
with no restraint whatsoever, but by the time they grow
up, they just can't any more. I could see people going
through all kinds of emotions when Mr. Poulin coached
them with the different vocal exercises. Finally, all
of us (more than 30 people) could do ALL the exercises,
including standing in front of the audience like a star
and performing with great stage manners! Me, who was making
a living on my singing, personally gained a lot just from
seeing others succeed. This made an unforgettable impact
on me, and from that day on, I am able to say to people
who ask me about being a vocalist: "Anyone can learn
how to sing".
What did you get out of this seminar?
Andrea: Most important
is the confidence that I can sing anything I want, any genres
and styles, and the skills to be able to do so. It was very
needed for me, indeed. I had been singing for many years,
but I didn't know too much about vocal tools. I'd spent a
few years at music school when I was a child, sung in the
school choir and I was a dancer with various folk groups,
through the years, where we were singing very intensely. Later
when I decided to build up a career as a singer, I started
out as a folk singer, changed my mind and simply learned a
couple of pop, rock and musical songs plus a few jazz standards
and just started to perform them. My audience loved it but
I was just singing these songs with no real technical knowledge
about how to sing them. Mr. Poulin's seminar came to town
at exactly the right time for me.
Bristol: How has what
you've learned affected your singing?
Andrea: It happened several
times that when I was learning a song, let's say a rock tune.
I was practicing and practicing, but it just didn't sound
the way I wanted it to or it was difficult for me to reach
the higher notes. Then I thought: okay, what did Ric say about
this? Then I kept his instructions in my mind and voilá!
The information that you learn at this seminar is really applicable.
Once one learns it, then drills himself in the technique,
he can do it -- of course, if you want to perform a song to
an audience, it will take some more work but with these vocal
exercises, no song should be a problem to sing. Also, after
this seminar, I didn't have any real problems with singing
different styles of music. Before, it was a big issue for
me, am I a folk singer or a pop singer or some other type
of singer? Since then, I have performed with various kind
of musicians: jive, pop, rock, even some metal, blues, soul,
latin, jazz, folk, contemporary and now I can sing all the
styles much more freely.
Bristol: What are you
doing now with your music career?
Andrea: Today I am mostly
involved in world music. I've returned to the good old Hungarian
folk songs. These I perform most of the time a cappella. People
like this very much from me because it's different than what
they hear every day. I'm also working with two composers who
make completely modern music with synths and other electronic
instruments. It's a very exciting mixture. Some songs can
be classified as new age, pop, ambient or whatever you call
it. One composer is Sandor Fekete Kiss from Hungary, the other
is Effi Shoshani from Israel. One album I've worked with them
on will come out in the fall, and I have also made a new CD
featuring a cappella songs. Every once in a while, for one
or two gigs or just for fun, I sing original songs and cover
songs with fellow musicians, let it be rock or whatever.
Bristol: What success
have you had from your recordings and performances?
Andrea: I recorded an
album featuring Hungarian folk songs in 1998. It is only my
voice singing songs in different moods from various parts
of historical Hungary. Today, after 6 years, this CD still
sells well, people love this recording and I get very good
feedback from them. Also, Effi listened to this CD and composed
music for a song on it -- this is how our collaboration started.
This song, "Lonely Is The Bird", received excellent
chart positions at several places, as well as great reviews
from listeners and critics. One person wrote me to say that
this was one of the most beautiful songs he has ever heard.
As a singer, I've performed at clubs, restaurants, exhibition
openings, private, corporate or church events, benefits, street
shows, promo concerts, and in countless towns in Europe. I
had a very successful performance in August, last year at
the Symmetry Festival in Budapest where I did one improvised
piece with Sandor and a new kind of music was born.
Bristol: Thank you Andrea!

"Jazz to Jam In Chatham"
Starting in July and continuing through August, Brian Walkley
and the crew at Willow Entertainment will be bringing some
of the biggest local and national jazz acts to the renowned
Wequassett Inn in Chatham, MA. Hot jazz and cool vibes will
take over the Inn every Tuesday, Wednesday and some Thursday
evenings as Walkley brings his Cape Cod Jazz Festival to Pleasant
Bay. Featured performers will include James Williams, Rachel
Z, Kenny Werner, Harvie S., Bombay Jim, Michael Kelley and
the Hot Blue Q, Harry Fix, John Licata, Mark Greel, Dick Johnson,
Daniela Schaechter, and the White Heat Swing Orchestra.
When asked about the reasoning behind this years festival
programming, Walkley said, The basic idea is to bring
great jazz music to the hearts and ears of the summer Cape
vacationers and present a wide variety of styles to appeal
to listeners young and old. This is evident with the
variety and depth of the artists as Cape Codders will be grooving
to the Latin vibes of Harvie S (8/19), bopping with Dick Johnson
(8/18) and Daniela Schacter (8/3), and chilling out with Rachel
Z (8/10) (who is fresh off a tour with Peter Gabriel). Piano
jazz fanatics will be in for a special treat when world class
pianists Kenny Werner and James Williams pilot their trios
into the Wequassett Inn for two very special nights. In over
a quarter century of performing Kenny Werner (8/11) has played
with such musical luminaries as Bob Brookmeyer, Ron Carter,
Joe Williams, John Abercrombie, Bobby McFerrin, Lee Konitz,
Marian McPartland, Joe Henderson, Tom Harrell, Gunther Schuller,
Ed Blackwell, Paul Motian, John Scofield, Jack eJohnette,
and Eddie Gomez. Whats made international recording
artist jazz pianist James Williams (8/31) compelling for more
than 20 years is his signature jazz style. His solos are stately
creations and have warmed the hearts of jazz fans worldwide.
Williams hits the Wequassett for one night to let loose some
Memphis grooves. Downbeat Magazine has said that Williams
expresses himself with direct concise power, plenty
of emotional warmth and an early material eloquence.
Brian will also be bringing in his band, The Brian Walkley
Band featuring the Real Deal Horns, on August 26 for a fabulous
night of funk, soul, and dancing. The all-star cast of musicians
in this band have performed with and currently record with
the likes of David Bowie, Steve Smith (Journey), Chaka Kahn,
Tiger Okashi, Jean Luc Ponty, and Kevin Eubanks (The Tonight
Show). And on August 1, Ricardo Monzon performs a special
program of Jazz for Kids. I fervently believe that it
is of the utmost importance to bring the joys and messages
of jazz to as many young people as possible. says Walkley,
It is the only way that jazz will thrive in the ears
of the younger generations.
"French Strike Deal on Music Piracy"
French Internet providers and recording industry executives
have pledged to cooperate in the fight against music piracy,
Daily Variety said Wednesday. The Internet companies and the
music industry officials signed a charter in Paris that calls
for a number of initiatives to fight piracy, including the
establishment of online sites where consumers can pay to download
tunes. The charter calls for concrete and efficient measures
in favor of the respect of intellectual property, Finance
Minister Nicolas Sarkozy said. He said the agreement provides
that Internet users who illegally download music will receive
warning notices, and Internet providers will not condone advertising
campaigns that associate high-speed connections with illegal
downloads. Details of a similar charter covering illegal film
downloading are expected to be announced in September. Variety
said about 16 million songs and 1 million films are illegally
downloaded from the Internet each day in France -- four times
the number legally acquired.
"Sony & BMG Merge to Form World's Second Largest
By Nick Patch
Yesterday, Sony Music and Bertelsmann Music Group (aka BMG)
announced that they have merged to form the world's second
largest recorded music company, coming in a close second to
everyone's favorite media conglomerate, Universal Music Group.
Sony BMG now controls more than 22% of the global music market,
with sales totaling around $8 billion annually. The merger
now leaves the music industry with just four major labels:
Sony BMG, Universal Music Group, WEA, and EMI. The European
Union approved the deal yesterday, despite opposing a similar
merger between Warner Music Group (WEA) and EMI four years
Apparently, the EU's main concerns with the merger this time
around had to do with fixed pricing on CDs and market collusion
(roughly translated: more expensive CDs and fewer music choices),
but they ultimately decided they couldn't prove the likelihood
of either. Which is sort of amusing when you consider how
many bands were dropped from their contracts (nearly 300)
when Universal merged with Polygram back in 1998.
Around 2000 of the two companies' staffers are expected to
lose their jobs (25% of their total workforce), according
to the Hollywood Reporter. However, the companies are insisting
that "core Artists and Repertoire business" will
not be affected. The 50/50 merger was lauded by both companies,
as Andy Lack, chairman and chief executive of Sony Music said:
"We have recognized that the creation of Sony BMG is
an appropriate and necessary response to current market conditions."
There's no indication as to whether any of the bands on Sony
BMG's staggering roster will be threatened, but a quick gander
at the artist pages on the companies' respective websites
should be enough to get the paranoid juices flowing. Then
again, maybe it'll just give Merge Records a few new bands

a head start. I liked the teacher Chris Billias and I liked
the studio. Viktor Kray had a studio upstairs like I had never
seen before. I completed the course and signed on for the
internship, which was awesome. It was my first real experience
in a recording studio environment. I loved it. To make a long
