Busy Busy Busy Busy….
I haven’t been around much, and probably won’t be for most of this week I have a festival coming up in just two more days and I’ve started my own company in the meantime. It’s J William Sound. I’ve got a tumblr blog/site in the works with some of my ouvre. I also have a bandcamp distribution site set up. And I’m getting business cards.
It actually started because I didn’t want to pay to get into a place and instead said I was recording the show. Which I did, and that’s what’s up on the site right now. But it occurred to me that for a small fee, $5-$10, I could really provide a service to bands like the ones that played. Only one of them has a record and recordings cost a lot of money. Live recordings will never sound like a studio, but I’m not aiming to supplant studios. I’m looking to provide some sort of raw experience that bands can use promotionally and I in turn can get some home studio experience with mastering. It’s a win-win and I make great connections if I ever do booking. It’s good for local music since they get recordings, and it’s great for touring bands since the venues I work in often have very unique sound that won’t be captured elsewhere.
Anyways, check out the business and see what you like. The recordings were done while I was slightly intoxicated and I can hear some of the faults, but one of the band members really like listening to it. So I’m going to chalk this up as a win. So here are the sites:
I hope you enjoy. And seriously, support local music. To see all these bands it would have cost you $5. That’s a beer. Local music is better than beer.
