Beachweek in the studio KILLING IT straight to analog tape. I’m excited about this project. In a world filled with so much stress and negativity, it feels great to be working on a project that just makes you want to smile and dance!
Had an amazing session recording percussion overdubs for Beachweek’s forthcoming single and EP with my friend Jamey Haddad (Paul Simon, Yo-Yo Ma) and Weedie Braimah (Oteil Burbridge, Christian Scott, Trombone Shorty) last Friday at Somewhere Recording. It’s always a pleasure working with Jamey and Weedie’s positive energy and vibe STILL has me smiling 4 days later! ? These guys are true masters and it’s an honor to be a witness. – Michael Seifert
For anyone looking to record in the near future, this might be of interest!
As some of you may know, I made arrangements to purchase a building in Euclid (15 minutes east of Cleveland for my non-local friends) a few years back. This has essentially served as my private recording studio/production space ever since.
Over the next few months, I will be focusing on a few special projects and these projects won’t always require the use of my studio. With this in mind, I’m happy to announce that we’ve decided to open the studio up for outside bookings. Sessions will include access to the space (including a massive 2,500 square foot tracking room with 24’ ceilings), use of our collection of vintage microphones, outboard gear, analog tape machines, amps and instruments, and an engineer.
Please check out our new website if you get a chance and feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
Prior to forming Damnation of Adam Blessing, Bill Constable and Jim Quinn made music together as The Society.
Recorded by legendary engineer Ken Hamann at Cleveland Recording back in 1967, the original 1″ 8 track analog master tapes for two previously unreleased songs, “You Girl” and “Lonely”, were recently discovered in the archives at Suma Recording Studios in Painesville, Ohio. Michael Seifert and Dave Shaw restored the original tapes and completed new analog mixes of both songs in Somewhere Recording’s Studio A earlier this year. The new mixes will be released on a limited edition 45!
