We have an exciting announcement to make! We've made another addition to the Living Oaks Studio team! Ladies and gentleman, meet Brandon Rinaldis!

BRANDON: "I was born in New Jersey but grew up here in Acworth, GA. My love for music began early on when my dad gave me one of his guitars. That was back in 5th grade and from that point on, I knew I wanted to be around music for the rest of my life. The more I learned guitar and discovered my favorite albums, I became more and more interested in the process behind creating a great record. This led me to attending Full Sail University in Orlando, FL, where I graduated with a Bachelors in Recording Arts. I then moved back home to build a home studio where I've sharpened my skills as a producer. There's nothing I love more than working on a powerful song with a great hook!

Fun fact: When I need time to relax and get away from music for a bit, I love spending my time doing small carpentry and wood working projects."

Welcome to the LOS family, Brandon!

STAFF SPOTLIGHT: Jacob Adkins
Intern

“Hey, I’m Jacob! I’m from Wichita, Kansas, but I’ve lived all over! Colorado and Texas are second homes, and now too is Georgia! I started playing tuba in the 5th grade, and I’ve been involved in music ever since! I was heavily involved as a drum major in my high school marching band, and I led the Tenor section in my high school jazz choir. I was also involved with the the men’s choir as a Tenor I at my previous school, Baylor University. I don’t play the tuba anymore, but I still supply the low end as a bassist for 3 Taverns Church in Acworth, GA. I’m also a student at Kennesaw State University studying Media & Entertainment and Music Entertainment Business.”

“Fun fact! I can dislocate both of my shoulders! Yes, it’s gross, and no, it doesn’t hurt.”

Hey, y'all! We have another fun announcement!

Give a warm welcome to the newest group to join Living Oaks Studio in partnership with Java Records, The Maddox Band!

The Maddox Band is an Americana band from Cartersville GA that was formed in April 2017 by guitarist and lead vocalist, Brandon Maddox, and violinist and vocalist, Kate Lovely. Brandon and Kate write songs that seek to take the listener to another place, whether it be through lyrics or the music! In a sense, their songs feel like a journey that you (and us too! :) ) get to experience and be a part of!

We're so happy to be working with The Maddox Band! Stay tuned for updates. Brandon and Kate, welcome to the LOS family!

STAFF SPOTLIGHT: John MacCullen
Owner / Operator at Living Oaks Studio

“Born in Atlanta, raised in Marietta, and currently living in Kennesaw, I am somewhat of an oddity these days: a native Georgian who still lives here! I have been involved with music for the better part of forty-five years. From a rock band front man back in the late 70s, to singer/songwriter and acoustic guitarist in the 80s and 90s, acoustic and electric guitarist with a Christian rock band in the 2000s, to acoustic, electric (lead and rhythm), and sometimes bass guitarist in church, all the way to current workings here at LOS and Java Records, that pretty much sums up my background! Working to bring my seasoned experience to up and coming artists is perhaps what I find most rewarding.

Fun fact: Back in the 70s, through a chance meeting, I had the opportunity to meet and get to know one of the original members of the band Kansas who lived in Atlanta at the time. While it was being recorded, I would get a weekly update on all the songs that would make up their album, ‘Point of Know Return.’”
