The Nashville Trax A Team

Welcome to Nashville Trax with an X, not to be confused with the other studio, same name, spelled differently. We are actually located in Nashville! Home of the incrdible Nashville Trax A Team, we are a Christian recording studio focusing on Christian, Country, Rock, Blues and Pop music! Most of our clients, and all of our employees are Christian.

“These tracks are smokin’ hot, Bill!!! This album is going to ROCK country style!!! Thanks man!!!! Wow!!!!!!” -Joe Finley, front man for The Swansons, regarding the tracks posted below.

And from client Mike Martin of the Sacramento, California area:

“Hi Bill, I have been playing my CD with the four songs you recorded for me and everyone is amazed at the quality of recording as well as the musicianship. You make records that are radio ready in my opinion and I just wanted to say thank you for all your work.”

Whether you need a demo of your song, a master, a performance track, a session quality instrument track added to a project you are producing, or even an entire album produced, the Nashville Trax A team, featuring our best players, is available at a price lower than you might think.

These are session veterans such as Jenee Fleenor, who plays fiddle and mandolin for major label country artist, Blake Shelton.

She was also the fiddle player on John Pardi’s 2016 Billboard #1 country hit “Head Over Boots” as well as the fiddle player on the #1 followup song by Jon Pardi that was certified gold for sales and streaming of 500,000 copies “”Dirt On My Boots” which features Jenee’s playing throughout.

She is the 2016 CMA Touring Musician of the Year as well as the fiddle player for the popular television show, The Voice.

In fact, Jenee turned down Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler’s offer to tour with him recently, but she is doing selected Steven Tyler dates…and guess what? Hire us and she’ll definitely play on your project!

Here’s our A team- we call them The Hitmakers- on a music-only track intended for an album we’re currently producing for the Producer’s Choice Awards winner of “The Best Live Band in Los Angeles” award, The Swansons. Their vocals will be added later. But it could just as easily be a demo or a track to use for live performance:

Male or Female Singers Available For Your Recording Project!

If you wrote a song recently and are in the process of recording or already have, one thing is probably crystal clear at this point:

The singer IS the song!

If you:

  • Don’t have a quality singer available for your song
  • Are in the recording process and the singer you chose isn’t working out
  • Attempted to sing your song yourself but know you aren’t the best choice
  • Have already finished your mix a while ago and now fresh ears are screaming, “This song deserves a better singer!”

We can help!

While it’s best to approach us at nashtrax@bellsouth.net BEFORE you cut the first rhythm track so you can select the singer you want and let them select the key they prefer to sing your song in, all may not be lost if you didn’t.

Several of our singers have a range so wide they can fit into just about any key. The price range is very reasonable as well. Demo rate is anywhere from $100 to $375 per song, depending on which singer you choose and that INCLUDES studio time, the singer and the producer/engineer!

You get a .wav file in any format you need (default is 24/48) that will drop right into Pro Tools, Cubase or any other popular recording format and lock up to your project automatically.

So let’s get to work solving your problem:

What do you need?

A male singer for my song

Brandon

Maybe Brandon would be a good choice?

A female singer for my song

Nashville Tracks singer Jenifer

Why not have our Nashville session singer Jennifer sing your song?

A quick search of Gigmasters proves that many singles and duos earn $400 to over $2,000 per performance! Why not you? Sound like a full band without the hassle or expense!

Perhaps you perform now? Have you ever tried making your sound bigger and richer by performing with pre-recorded tracks?

It’s EASY! you’ll hear four count off clicks and the song begins. You play along on whatever instrument(s) you wish. That instrument will be removed from the mix but the rest of the instruments will be there!

If you already use karaoke tracks you know most of the parts sound cheesy.

How to Earn Income from your Songs on YouTube!

Gary Nowak operates a business on YouTube using our productions of his original songs. His latest A Miracle At Work is just getting started.

The first, titled Gasoline featuring actor Christopher Rigali is closing in on a half million views! Chris is an awesome actor and has superb lip syncing skills. It really looks like he sang it!

YouTube compensates songwriters several ways and you don’t have to be on a major label, any independent songwriter can create a song video and post their song on You Tube.

1) Independent songwriters are paid for advertising revenue clicks on their video post.

2) Your music is made available for licensing to professional and consumer content uploaders. You get paid each time your music is played as featured or background music in someone else’s video.

3) You get royalties for original song material video plays.

Besides continually pitching the majority of our catalog (of client song demos and masters) to our major label and top independent label contacts, if you’re not computer savvy, we can create a video of your song for you, then post it on YouTube.

We can also place your songs on Amazon.com through Amazon.com’s Advantage program; on CD Baby and their associated AllMedia and MicroSync programs, on TuneCore etc. to make your music available not only on YouTube, but also through licensing channels for TV, film, video games, and more.

We can place your single demo on Kickstarter and request funding for a master recording or a full blown CD, video and promotion.

Of course there are more traditional ways to profit. Your songs could be picked up by a producer looking for songs for an artist, they could be featured in an indie film or placed on a network TV show.

Like the idea of making a pro version of your tune and posting on You Tube to see if you can pull in some bucks? Want us to produce a song for you? Send your rough MP3 to nashtrax@bellsouth.net and request a quote today!
