"There is an incredible amount of talent in Northeast Louisiana and we want to be a part of showcasing this talent and providing a launching point for their art," says Music City Studios' Scott Frick.
Monroe, LA (PRWEB) October 13, 2011
Music City Studios, a state-of-the-art recording studio built by artists for artists, kicks off its grand opening on Oct. 28, 2011, with a four-hour live extravaganza overflowing with live music and special guests. The event will run from 3 to 7 p.m.
Music City Studios is the brainchild of husband and wife Scott Frick, of Nashville, TN, and Gayle Hoover Frick, of West Monroe. Their desire is to offer fellow artists within Louisiana and beyond a first-rate facility that provides an inspiring, comfortable, affordable, and creative environment. Scott, Music City Studio's manager, engineer and producer, has been a recording artist, songwriter and performer for over 30 years. He is also the owner of Frick Music Publishing and independent record label R.E.F. Records based in Nashville. Gayle, meanwhile, is a multi-skilled artist whose more than three decades of work experience has taken her from working full-time in ministry, film and video production, voice-over work, theater directing, and choreography to book and music publishing. She is Music City Studios' manager and creative consultant.
"We named it Music City Studios because of our roots in Nashville but also because we see this studio offering the best of Nashville on a smaller scale," says Scott. "There is an incredible amount of talent in Northeast Louisiana and we want to be a part of showcasing this talent and providing a launching point for their art." Music City Studios has already had musicians from a variety of musical genres to record in their studio, including country, hip hop, and gospel. Contemporary Christian artist Naomi Carroll, who has appeared with Bill Gaither, The Martins, By The Tree, and Phillips, Craig, & Dean said “I have recorded all over, from the Gaither Studios in Indiana to Suite 16 in Nashville and found this studio to be state of the art and professional. It’s the kind of beautiful facility and environment an artist needs to inspire the vibe they’re going for.”
” Music City Studios has also recorded audio books, including one by author/speaker/comedian Burt Teplitsky, featured on CBS and The Wall Street Journal.
Music City Studios offers local artists, including new and upcoming musicians, the choice to avoid traveling to the 'big city' and spending 'big city' prices. The recording studio offers high quality recording facilities including ProTools 9HD3, a Yamaha acoustic grand piano, as well as special packages and services that will suit individual musicians in the recording process.
Located in the state that has become known as “Hollywood South,” and the No. 3 film destination in the U.S., Music City Studios is an ideal choice for audio post production and ADR for film and television and is fully equipped with the latest ProTools 9HD3 with 5.1 surround sound. As the only full recording studio in Northeast Louisiana equipped for film, television and digital interactive, Music City Studios is hopeful of attracting filmmakers wishing to take advantage of the aggressive Louisiana tax incentives for these media expenditures. This burgeoning recording studio is already branching out into cinema with their recording of “A New Hope is Rising” by Naomi Carroll and Mason Granade. This is the title song for the movie “New Hope” by R-Squared Productions, the Louisiana-based film production company that produced “Flag of My Father” with John Schneider, GiGi Erneta and William Devane.
