We were quite glad to have Rev. Frank James back in the studio yesterday to lay down some basic tracks for an upcoming release. This time, he brought along Elijah Williams for keys and Praylonn Prince for drums. Another good day in the Skys.

Recently, we've had the pleasure of recording some band sessions for the wonderful & talented Susan Bartley for an upcoming project. A lot of great music, a lot of great conversations, and for sure, a lot of great fun. We always look forward to the days we spend with Susan and her songs.

Roy 'C' Hammond - 1939-2020

It is with great sadness that Roy ‘C’ has passed.

Roy walked into my studio some 30 years ago with guitarist J. Hines and a small group of musicians to record a remake of Sam Cooke's ‘Change is Gonna Come’. They knew what they wanted and how they wanted it done. Roy made it perfectly clear that I was the one being tested. Could a white kid from suburbia record R&B? Fortunately, I passed the audition.

My last session with Roy was February of this year. He looked thinner but his mind was sharp and full of musical ideas. We found the time to have several private conversations reminiscing over the 100+ songs we worked on together. He said he had another album in him but needed a month to pull things together. Then Corona came and all production shut down. I wonder what might have been.

My nickname for Roy was 'Professor'. He taught me so much about arrangements - especially the use of stings and horn sections. On many sessions, he would show up with a trunk load of 2 inch masters from his time with major labels. We would just listen to the performances of A-list players recorded in amazing acoustical spaces. “That’s the sound I want,” he’d say to me.

I am forever grateful

RIP ‘Professor’ Roy

After 30 days of quarantine, we have officially re-opened our doors to the public. We would like to thank all of our friends and clients who called to check on us in the interim and wish us good health for the future. We started back up strong with a tracking session with JOEL AZIA, a world class drummer from Ivory Coast in West Africa. It was a great treat to record and spend time with this exceptionally gifted and truly kind individual.

From Steve Pilant...

Thanks to everyone that came out Saturday night for the INTERCEPTOR team appreciation / wrap party. It took a while for us to be able to get all our crazy schedules together. :-) Strawberry Skys Recording Studios had a really nice layout with Mark Poole's stunning paintings and imagery warmly enveloping and wrapping around us all - with food, drink and a good time and conversations to be had by all (panoramic images of the layout by Barry Shirley). I'm so proud of my team's hard work on this album! I love every person on my team and wish you all every beautiful thing this life and love have to offer...

Back in 1993, Strawberry Skys had the pleasure of working with R&B legend Dennis Edwards. Dennis, along with Producer Roy C, recorded the album "Talk To Me" here in our studios. Roy C assembled a group of great players and great songs, and Dennis demonstrated his superb talent and years of experience making hit records. He was a consummate artist and gentleman, and to work with him was an honor.

RIP Dennis Edwards
