March 26, 2014 update: 3 new Mp3s below!
Derrick Patterson is an area musician/music scene veteran who came to Euphonic Studio after a Facebook chat joke turned into a project. The suggestion was jokingly made that his song “Girl By the Fire” should be made into a video, and before long a plan was in place to get a project in motion.
With Kelly Gravel, video producer and owner of Darkest Before Dawn Productions (Lisbon, Iowa, 319-693-9232), at the helm, the first part of the video was to create the audio track for it. So Derrick shopped around and chose Euphonic Studio for his recording (good choice, IMO). He came in for the session with Kelly and photographer Dave Carpenter (DC Photography, Lisbon, IA, 319-693-9464), who shot stills of the recording session for promotional use. The session went very well, and the song is available just below the text.
I should also mention that the videographer, Jonathan Guerrero, wasn’t able to make the recording session but was very busy during the video shoot. The video is now in editing (they have 3 hours to sort through for a 3 minute song).
When Derrick came back for his second recording, I was pleased to meet his wife Kellie, who was the inspiration for the song “Not in My Wildest Dreams.”
We are looking forward to having Derrick back into the studio, and I will try to get a copy or at least a link to the video so you can enjoy the work of Kelly Gravel’s video production studio, too!
