2018 was a vital year for us here at Silverthorn Studios! While seemingly quiet, there is a lot happening in the background!
- Studio co-founder Taylor Abrahamse worked intensely on his debut record, produced in partnership with the legendary Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Michelle Branch and many many more). After hearing Taylor perform an impromptu song on the conference floor of Canadian Music Week, Eddie contacted Taylor that evening with a desire to produce his debut studio record! It has been quite the journey, but the record is largely completed, and recorded largely at Silverthorn Studios with supervision from Eddie himself. Taylor, Eddie, and an assortment of guest musicians and engineers worked tirelessly on the record, eating up most of the studio's free hours. As of the writing of this post, the record of Taylor's original songs is being shared with labels and publishing companies. Fingers crossed for whats to come!
- Taylor also began production on a secondary ‘studio demo’ collection of songs he will release soon in conjunction with a Youtube page revamp.
- Victoria Christine & Becky Shrimpton graced us with their phenomenal coaching abilities. Victoria lead recording & singing sessions for a variety of clients, and Becky directed stellar commercial voiceover demos, sessions engineered by our own Kevin Lipsett.
- Taylor also had his hand at voice acting coaching, private and group sessions, while starring in various animated shows coming to the small screen in the year to come. He also directed animation voice demos for children's audiobook narrations.
- Studio co-founder Bryn Scott-Grimes released a single, 'Fly Off In A Tone', produced fully at Silverthorn Studios with assistance from James Atin-Godden, and expanded his already thriving Harmonica School into schools across Ontario! He has also been working diligently on an online harmonica school, with high quality instructional videos filmed inside Silverthorn.
- We also had a few special events, including a hoping’ 2 year anniversary party!
- A special thanks to the myriad of folks who recorded here, including those we can’t recall right away. It was quite the year...
But no more time to look back. Now its time to make 2019 the best year yet!
Till we type again,
