Our Recording Sessions
RAD conducts a series of eight-week intensive sessions a year, in which several singer-songwriters, selected by audition, work with our producer Phil Carroll in our recording studio. Participants meet in four three-hour group sessions with other participants and industry professionals, where in-progress songs are played and critiqued by all group members. Our producer works with each singer/songwriter to write, arrange and produce the artist’s music into a final CD recording. Participants have the experience of working closely with our producer and other musicians in the recording studio. Each artist has the experience of writing, arranging, and producing his or her piece of music in a supportive and creative environment. The focus is on artistic development, songwriting technique, and style as well as hands-on recording studio techniques. RAD provides each artist with a fully mixed-and-mastered CD recording of their work he or she can then use to pursue their artistic and career goals. At the end of each recording sessions, RAD premieres the newly recorded music at a Showcase Listening Party.
