Nashville demo studio recommendations

Hi

I'm thinking about trying a Nashville demo studio to record some country songs.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

Stew

I can recommend Gary Earl. He understand both the pitching market and sync market well, so you can have something done that fits your target(s).

Nashville Demo Factory http://www.nashvilledemofactory.com/

They do great work and give full WFH for Film/TV. The first 2 songs I did with them were accepted into an important Taxi-friendly library. I'm working on #3 right now.

Good luck!

Ditto, what Casey said! They do a great job at a very reasonable price.

I use "A Writer's Paradise" (Stacy Hogan) in Nashville. He does fantastic work. Highly recommend.

I forgot to ask. What is your goal with these demos? Pitching for artists or Film/TV? Or both? If Film/TV is a consideration (and I think it might be shortsighted to rule it out), you have to be careful with studios, especially in Nashville.

For Film/TV, you want know up front that they can provide a work for hire release. It's essential or you can't pitch it for Film/TV. You should review the document before proceeding. And be sure that the signatory to the WFH will be the musicians, not the studio itself. Also, make sure there are no union musicians playing "off the card" on the track as that can also cause problems.

The studio I suggested meets the requirements. I'm sure others do as well. But be careful. A demo that can be pitched for artists, who would re-record the song (e.g. a "song" demo), is not the same as a master RECORDING for Film/TV, where is would be used "as is".

Many have got burned, spending $500-$1000 on a demo, only to find out they can't pitch it for Film/TV.

Good luck!
:D Casey
