I haven’t been able to travel much of late, but not so long ago I found a little slice of paradise on St. Maarten.  A bit closer to home, I love getting down to Sarasota and Ft. Myers FL.

Recording Session in Nashville

Music is a central influence when we’re talking new possbilities with digital media. Publishing and marketing are literally transformed.

I’ve always found local, indie music to be downright inspirational, fueling accessible studio sessions, and eye-catching photographic images that are key to establishing awareness, defining the a brand and promoting the faces behind the sounds.

Case in point?

There was a recording session in Nashville a little ways back. Pines of Porter is Courtney Kruckeberg, Corey Jones, Taylor Berryhill, and Derek Cohen.  They’ve been making music in Nashville, and their sound is nothing short of awesome. Stay tuned. Literally.
