Where Would We Be Without Rod Stewart?

He was even inducted into the exclusive club of Commander of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or CBE for short, along with fellow musicians Trevor Horn and Elton John. Stewart, Nathaniel Kunkel and producer David Foster were in Studio F this month working towards perfecting a 5.1 mix of his upcoming Christmas album. Look for it at the end of the month!

If you’re having a bad day and you think you’ll never make it in the music industry, listen to George Benson’s version of, “On Broadway” and I bet you’ll feel re-inspired.  Since the 1960’s, a then 21-year-old Benson was already working as a jazz musician for the likes of Jack McDuff, and even topped Billboard music charts with his album “Breezin” in 1976. “Little Georgie” (as he was then called) has gone on to win ten Grammys, play countless tours and festivals all over the world and will be releasing a new album very soon. We were honored to have him in Studio D with famed engineer Al Schmitt (who actually worked on “Breezin” with Benson, along with countless greats like Steely Dan, Ray Charles, Quincy Jones etc.) and assistants Shin Miyazawa and Chris Owens.
