World class talent!

Wednesday, 23 August 2017 by

We’ve had some amazing world class musicians in the studio last month! Ken Springfellow (Posies, REM, BigStar) was recently in to produce tracks for Joanne Hodges new release. World renowned guitarist Paul Gilbert recording some tracks for Mr. Big and Kelly LeMeiux (Buckcherry) laying down some bass tracks for Jennifer Del Villars. What a pleasure

We did it again! Second album in a row. Best northwest blues recording award! Congratulations Lisa Mann and a big thanks to the CBA. We are humbled and honored with this recognition.

    This session was awesome! We had world renowned shred master Paul Gilbert in the studio. Along with Damien Erskine on bass and Bill Ray on drums, they threw down some mind blowing tracks for Paul’s upcoming Japanese release!    

Kelly Lemieux was in recently to lay down bass lines for Mike Collin’s new project Rooftop Screamers. As expected, he rocked the house!

We’ve begun production on the Poison Idea EP! Jerry A and the guys were in yesterday and laid down some slammin’ rhythm tracks. Look for the new release in early 2016!

Big Congratulations to Lisa Mann and her great band on winning 3 Muddy Awards last night including NW Recording of the year for “Move On”! Thanks for choosing Opal Studio. You guys are truly deserving and great see you getting the recognition.

Had the good fortune of recording Mark White from the Spin Doctors today. Dude killed it on a track for Eight53! Check out the link below. He’s amazing!
