What do you get when you combine the hottest rock band in Scotland with a famous producer/engineer and a legendary studio? The answer: 3 months of epic happenings. Scotsman invaded the Village this month with the presence of Biffy Clyro, and we fell in love. These talented, yet down to earth guys were hard at work on their new album in Studio A with Garth Richardson, best known for his work with Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nickelback and his successful recording school “Nimbus School of Recording” in Canada. The album titled “ Opposites” is expected to be released in January, but in the meantime, check out this video to see some cool footage of their time in Studio and in LA!

Rock & Roll, dudes…

With themes as old as time itself, ABC’s newest smash hit, “Nashville” has all the elements of great television: Deep rooted rivalries, love, sex, heartbreak and of course, amazing music. Since the shows inception on October 10th, the ratings have continued to soar and many believe it’s due to the combination of an all-star cast and well written songs.
Rascal Flatts has been going strong since they signed their record deal with Lyric Street in 1999. Not only has the band released eight studio albums (seven of which were certified platinum or higher) but they have toured the globe to sold out crowds, risen to number one status on the Billboard Hot 100 in more than one category and raised/donated millions of dollars for the American Red Cross and Children’s Hospitals. Needless to say, Rascal Flatts has been busy. So busy in fact that they needed to occupy three of our four main studios for a media day. The guys spent the morning holding interviews, speaking at press conferences and sitting in on radio shows from the comfort of The Village via ISDN as they gear up for their Christmas album and upcoming “Changed 2013” tour. Jared Nugent, Jeff Gartenbaum and Alex Williams were there to help in their respective studios.
The Hunger Games – Songs from District 12 and Beyond Cover
From Nickelodeon screenwriter to International Bestselling author, Suzanne Collins has proved herself to be a force in the writing world. With a slew of awards including the California Young Reader medal and The Hunger Games movie set to premiere this March, she has much to be proud of. Suzanne began her writing career in Children’s television with shows like Clarissa Explains It All and Little Bear, but when she published The Hunger Games trilogy in 2008, she changed the face of the young adult novel. Elegantly written yet painfully real, The Hunger Games were aimed at a younger demographic intentionally to raise awareness about war and spark conversation amongst America’s youth. T Bone Burnett was at the helm for the film’s soundtrack, writing original music, collaborating with Grammy winning artists and musically producing for the much‐anticipated March premiere. Studio’s B and D acted as home base for the project with Jason Wormer and Mike Piersante engineering and Vanessa Parr assisting.
