Acoustic Artist Adler's Debut Album Recorded in a Trailer Park?

San Antonio-based indie acoustic act, "Adler," recorded their debut CD in the bedroom of a 1200 sq. ft. mobile home.

San Antonio, TX -- Matt and Sarah Adler, a young married couple of two and a half years, have always had a passion for music. They had written and played music together for several years when they decided they needed an album to promote - something to sell when they played live; something to get people listening to their music. However, they were not about to fit the "hundreds of dollars per hour" bill that normally accompanies professional recording studio time.

Matt had been accumulating studio gear, little by little, for years. When all the album talk rolled around, he figured "why couldn't I take a shot at it?" And here we are, 5 months later, with a finished product - a box of 100 copies of Adler's debut album, "No One Else But You," arrived at Matt and Sarah's doorstep just this month. The results are nothing short of astonishing.

The audio quality of the album is crisp and clear, rivaling commercial releases of the same genre. "I wanted this album to be a cut above the standard independent release," Matt said, "My hope was that when someone listened to the record, they would not be able to tell that it was not released by some huge record label and backed by thousands of dollars!"

Matt and Sarah Adler handled all of the recorded parts of the album, performing all of the singing as well as playing guitar, dulcimer, djembe, tom-tom drum and mellotron. Percussive elements of the recording were sometimes creatively ad-libbed, with the shaking of a guitar pick case or the scraping of various objects utilized to create the appropriate rhythmic backdrop for a song. Matt even designed the artwork used for the packaging of the album.

"Anyone can do this if they have the right mindset," Matt said, "and it's a heck of a lot cheaper than paying for studio time!"

Adler hails from San Antonio, TX and currently plays several live shows a month in their hometown as well as other south TX venues.
