V. Shayne Frederick soars on the exquisitely eclectic Blacklight - The Key

It was such a pleasure working with V.Shayne Frederick. One of the very best things I've heard in Philly. Please give this album a spin.

From the opening seconds of V. Shayne Frederick‘s latest EP, Blacklight, it’s immediately evident that this isn’t an ordinary Philly jazz project. The vocalist, pianist, and bandleader cackles and asks us, directly: “What y’all thinking?” before launching the devilishly soulful … Conti...

TVD Premiere: Kris Gruen, "You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory" - The Vinyl District

We were lucky enough to have the great Kris Gruen here recording this Johnny Thunders classic. And honor to have him here. Excited about this premier.

The alt-folk artist Kris Gruen has an intergenerational connection with the 1970s rock and punk scene in New York, so it’s more than appropriate that one of the first singles off his new album is a wistful cover of the legendary scene maker Johnny Thunders’ tune “You Can’t Put Your Arms Arou...

It turns out Laura Ballance (Superchunk + Merge Records) and I share something in common - the first album we both bought as kids was Music Box Dancer. Anyone remember that bizarre pop hit? 😂 This was a great conversation led by Joe Steinhardt. We’re loving this Drexel Music Industry Program series. #recordmaking #studiolife #drexelmip #indiemusic

Share the Spotlight

Did you know that we also operate a nonprofit? Share the Spotlight provides tuition-free music education to youth in NYC and Philly. Please donate and help us reach our annual fundraising goal (we’re so close)! #GivingTuesday

This #GivingTuesday, you can help us give the gift of music education! Share the Spotlight offers a tuition-free summer music program to middle- and high-school students in Philadelphia and New York City, and free workshops for Philadelphia students auditioning for the city's public performing arts high schools.

By offering musical education and mentorship, students are better prepared to pursue artistic and musical endeavors in school and in their communities. They also develop the self-confidence and interpersonal skills that will aid them academically and professionally in the future.

Right now, we’re just under $2,000 shy of our fundraising goal. Your generous donation will help us expand our programming to more students with new workshops and events that will reach more teens than ever before!

So excited for the release of this awesome @1032music tune, recorded here last summer.
#repost from 10:32 The magic of @theloniousfab arranging a Tom Riddle b-side last summer in Philly @keystonesoundworks. We’ve been sitting on this track a while, waiting for the right time to release it. And that time is just around corner! We’ve also got a show @91livingroom AND we are heading to @totalrefreshmentcentre to record some new music, as soon as @digbylovatt gets back from tour 💕💕💕 #makingrecords #recordingstudio #newmusic

Our studio is named after the historic Keystone Sawworks. Yesterday we got to take an amazing Hidden City Philadelphia tour of the Disston factory complex (where Keystone saws were made). We even met several members of the Disston family.
