Australian Issy Burnup Finds Her Sound At Nashville Trax, Bill Watson Producing

Hailing from Australia, pics of  highly talented singer/songwriter Issy Burnup’s recording session yesterday.

Producer Bill Watson, pictured below holding the gifts the Burnup family brought  from “the land down under” (Vegemite and a bag made from a kangaroo’s scrotum) says, “We did more than simply cut tracks, I believe we gave Issy a sound that will help her discover her direction as an artist.”

Awesome session!

The Jailbirds from Germany in to record yesterday!

Father and son duo, The Jailbirds, flew in from Germany to record 5 songs yesterday for their upcoming album.

Dirk played guitars, bass and percussion while his father, Walther, sang and occasionally added rhythm guitar. Great guys, good players, Walther sings great and somewhat surprisingly, they speak English very well.

What a fun session!. Tracking is complete, the project is ready to mix.

Other upcoming recording sessions with clients coming from overseas include clients from New Zealand (May 1st) and Australia (June 8th).



Hi Bill,

  Feel free to post the mixes on the website.  They really sound great, thanks again to both Shawn and you.

  Best regards from Berlin,

  Walther & Dirk
