New album by Audio Stone! Available in two weeks time!

New Band- Audio Stone, Has just released an album that will be available on all online stores in two weeks!
This has been a labor of love between Producer/Guitarist Jesse Sou Pritchard, and Vocalist/Songwriter Al Arroyo for the past three to four years.

“We haven’t really been recording these songs seriously until now”.
-Jesse.

Why? Well there just hasn’t been enough need for it, in the secular realm, until now.
People want new music, people need to be entertained. And that is exactly what POP/Rock band Audio Stone, is all about.
We mastered a track from this album at Metropolis Studios. If that wasn’t enough, We have been tirelessly working on this album, and another one, from New Christian band, named- Sacred Stone. Which is an offshoot from Audio Stone.
We do hope you enjoy the titles, from this album, as much as we had fun making it!
This album is not released on Stillbliss Records.
It is an entire personal entity in itself.

Enjoy!

Pray Peace.

Christmas here from Stillbliss, Post!

So, with all the terror and hype around the pandemic, that people are forced to wear masks, is just a bit too much. But honestly?
We need a little Christmas. The magic from Stillbliss. And everything that music stands for, we are in it too!

This month we will have Skip Taylor over for a session. But honestly, This year has been great!
Of course the pandemic still keeps this year, and maybe next in the checking zone. But honestly? Let’s spend this years ending with those we love!

Of course I could post about all the bad. but this blog is not made for that. The news and TV already does that well enough.

So, honestly? we just want to send our Stillbliss love to you all!
Merry Christmas 2020!
It’s right around the corner. It’s the season to be jolly. As well as the season for giving.

Cause the more you give, you’ll get!

We hope and wish you the best for this Christmas.
Enjoy!
And,
stay Blissed out!

New song in the works!

So yeah, yesterday, we had Al Arroyo over for some tracking of a song called “Joanne”.
We first layed down a rough guiding track with guitars and vocals, at the right BPM. Then we added bass, then Acoustic guitar, then used the four channels of Cinemag transformers for micing the kick snare and two overheads. then we used the BlA 173 with Edcore Transformers on the room mic. All using the same AKG C214. Which has been working like a champ!

We had our bands drummer drum for this song.
We also added some bongos and shaker.

Overall it was a fun day!
Sorry! Again, I forgot to take pictures of the session happening.

But by golly G I will try to make sure next time, and times after that to take pics.

Ok Beautiful people! Stay Blissed out. I’m going to perform a wedding in Tokyo. See you laterz!

On Wednesday!

Notes From Skip:

On Wednesday November 18, 2020, I took a train from Chiba-ken to Hashimoto and Stillbliss Studios. I had a rather ambitious agenda-to make progress on three very different projects, in one recording session. I have worked with Stillbliss on assorted projects for a number of years. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted-but less so than usual. I needed to hunt down several keyboard sounds, that can be very time-consuming. The first part of the project was a voice narration. I had written a script, the goal was to advertise myself for voice acting work. I wanted a version with just my voice, and one with musical accompaniment, more for entertainment purposes. Next was a keyboard part on one of my songs, which I started in 2018 but had stalled for various reasons. It did take some time to find the right sound but, Jesse was very helpful. The last part of the session involved recording vocals for a song that will be on the soundtrack of an independent film, in which I am also acting. The song is one that my character recorded `back in the day`. Once again Jesse was very helpful with this part and had some great input.

One of the things I really like about Stillbliss is, that in the U.S. there is usually a very set division between recording engineer and producer. There are reasons for this, especially in a big-budget production. But Jesse is totally okay about giving advice, feedback and offering solutions that may not be immediately obvious. That really helps for getting things done on time-and on budget.

I`m looking forward to my next visit and the next phase of my recordings. Thanks Jesse!

Thanks Skip!

Skip Taylor and Chris Larke studio sessions!

The other day, Skip Taylor came out to the country side, here at Stillbliss.
He recorded some piano parts, as well as some voice over demo work for possible voice over opportunities.

He also added vocals for a song called “Breakfast Is The Sin”. Which is a dance pop number from a producer in Switzerland. We layed vocals over the backing track from the producer using the AKG C214. And Skip commented that, “The mic worked like a champ!”

Thank you Skip! We always like positive reviews from our dear clients.

Best of luck dear Skip! We wish you the best!
Also,

This morning I woke up to an email from Chris Larke in the UK for some mixing work.
He sent us the STEM’s for a new number we’re working on. And we boosted the levels using the Black Lion Audio BLA 173 and FMR Audio PBC 6a. Overall the past few days were a class A typa day’s.

Thanks dear Chris And Skip!
Thank you!

…You are what keep us alive and kicking!

The Dandy Lionz – Closer Album 2020 version, finally Available for purchase.

We were hesitant about uploading our album due to copyright issues with the singer, due to incorrect naming of the songwriter/singer.

But just today, I am amazed that our album made it to the digital formats.
I guess God is on our side, and prayer changes things!

So here we give you in all its glory ‘Closer’.
By our in house band- The Dandy Lionz.

We are actually working on remixing and adding better elements to the tracks, as well as taking out some tracks and adding better ones in their place.

But for all you hard core POP/Rock fans out there digging into your pockets, for a taste of pop sugar, then this just might be your ticket.
From the moment of release, we already sold quite a few copies.

We hope you like it!

Here you are!
A bit:
-CLOSER!
