This Success Story comes from vocalists who took part in the PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP PART I offered by Bristol Voice Studios.

"I feel that as a performer I have now found the tools that I need to become successful in my field. I am now able to be more comfortable and more daring." - AB

"This workshop gave me confidence which allowed me to concentrate on the song, to feel it and to be able to express it. I felt very comfortable performing in front of people I'd never met before. I never thought I could feel that comfortable! Thanks!!" - DD

I feel that I gained more vocal confidence through the exercises we did, and especially confidence in my stage presentation! I feel more comfortable in front of the crowd expressing myself." - MG



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.

Local Producer 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.
"This 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 say: "I 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 at www.bryceaubrey.com

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 On."

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, and for more info about Emmy's gigs and to vote for her music on Nette radio, go to www.emmycerra.com

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 Chris."

"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 the‘Counts perform is arranged by their members. For more information about the Pointercounts, visit their website at http://www.pointercounts.org

ProTools Expert and Educator Viktor Kray was recently working in Studio V with two members from MIT Resonance, MIT's newest a cappella group.

More information can be found on their web site http://web.mit.edu/resonance/www/home.html.

Everyone here at Bristol Studios wants to wish all the best to vocalist Christina McGhie as she heads to Nashville, Tennessee to begin her studies at Belmont University, where she will work toward a performance degree in Commercial Music. For Christina, music has been intrinsic to her nature ever since she was a little girl. Writing her first song at the tender age of two, her career has since skyrocketed. Christina has appeared on the Beantown Block, a television variety show highlighting Boston area artists, where they featured Christina singing "In or Out" an original song that was produced here at Bristol Studios. Christina has performed for the New England Revolution, at Coyote Ugly, at the Bristol Voice Student Showcase, and at many other events and festivals around New England. Already generating major label interest, this rising star will now make her mark in Music City, USA.

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 out his website at www.bristolstudios.com/keith.html.

Carl Thomas of Bad Boy Entertainment recently headlined Organized Gear’s 3rd Annual Fashion Showcase at the John Hancock Hall in Boston. Other performers included Bad Boy Entertainment NESS from MTV's Making the Band, Boston’s own diva extravaganza Jada featuring an awesome performance by hip-hop dance troupe Off The Curb, and Bristol recording clients, r&b phoenonema, One Luv. The fashion showcase began three years ago after CEO Frank B. sought to provide a high-profile venue for Boston’s 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. “I’m thrilled at the success we’ve had and at where we’ll be in the future. It’s also nice to be able be operating at a high-enough level to be able to give something back to the community, as we’re doing this year by donating part of the proceeds to Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade.” The fashion showcase has become one of Boston’s 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 and community-oriented organization. For more information check out www.organizedgear.com.

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?

Andrea: Amazing! 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".

Bristol: 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 on,
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 year’s 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. What’s 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 Music Company"
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 ago.

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 to sign.

"I came to Bristol Recording Studios after one semester at Berklee College of Music. It seemed that it was going to be semesters before I could get into any music production classes at Berklee. I found out about Bristol and I enrolled in an audio engineering class to get 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 story short, I left Berklee & Bristol after one year and quickly found employment in studios out in Los Angeles
thanks to my experiences in Boston." - CF

Musi-Cal at http://www.musi-cal.com/ is a cool site that lists lots of music concert and festival listings.

The site is part of the Folk Music Webring, and many of the featured artists fall into folk, country and roots rock categories. Take a look around. If your act fits with the format, start listing your gigs.

Musi-Cal appears to be associated with another music event site called Mojam at http://www.mojam.com/ -- only Mojam covers a wide range of genres.
