Our client, Grace (from N. Zealand) scores huge success with her song “San Jose” produced at Nashville Trax. now the city’s theme song!Posted: June 13, 2019
Recording here at Nashville Trax was a great first step that may parlay into a record deal for this 16-year-old dynamo.
The third time recording here was the charm that landed Grace possible lifetime royalties from the use of her song by the San Jose Tourism Team, a show with Blake Shelton and has a major rap producer wanting the stems from her song for a rap remix!
The City of San Jose Tourism Bureau has officially replaced their song used for the last 43 years, Dionne Warwick’s “Do You Know The Way To San Jose” with Grace’s San Jose as the official song to promote the city. San Jose was produced, mixed and mastered here at Nashville Trax, and is the track used in the City of San Jose’s vids posted here.

The Danny Thompson Band single, Miles and Miles (distributed by Sony) which was recorded here, has given Nashville Trax unexpected exposure overseas.
Airplay in the U.K., Australia, Canada and other places has prompted potential clients who live in those countries to seek us out. The sessions have been low pressure, great fun and the clients left with great recordings. Some do cover tunes, some do originals.
It’s so much fun for us to meet people who live in other countries, trade stories and make some great music!
If you, or a member of your family sings or plays an instrument and you are about to vacation in the U.S., why not take advantage of the opportunity to do some music in Nashville?
This is your chance to record with world class musicians, the best on the planet!
Some of our overseas clients did only cover tunes, others only originals. Grace Kelly of New Zealand (pic #1) did both.
“Thanks Bill, I wants to say thanks for your patience, professionalism and support of Grace. Sunday was a big step for her. The guys were all outstanding AND were all great musos too. Loved your bass playing, your lines on her own song really made the track. We can start planning the next project. Best to you and the guys.” Brian (Kelly)
