A Day in the Life of Our StudentsCongrats to Recording Connection for Audio Engineering & Music Production graduate Jones Nelson on his band Million Whispers’ latest rock release—Call to Me. We asked the Nashville-based artist to tell us what inspired the new album. What he said is best conveyed in his own words: “Call to Me takes an introspective look at where we are in society today. We’re all under so much pressure to perform at the top of our game professionally, spiritually, and emotionally without question. This E.P. was written to question some of these conventional norms, and to reassess what really matters in life. Where are we going? What are we truly passionate about? I made the decision to follow my passion four years ago, when I first signed up for RRFC. This education gave me the skills and permission to dig deeper into making music and recording audio in a way I’d never done before. It allowed me to work with engineers and producers that I otherwise never would have had the opportunity to work with. I’m really proud of how far I’ve come.” The six-song E.P. was written/tracked/performed/mixed/mastered by RRFC grad Jones Nelson at Alien Sasquatch Studios in Nashville. Listen on Spotify. Sometimes our students are downright surprised by just how enlivening they find our programs. It’s true! Learning can be fun and even life-changing. Recording Connection for Audio Engineering & Music Production student Kay Witcher is enjoying the time she’s spending externing at Chaka Harley’s Playground Studios (Durham, NC). So much so, that she’s even getting into the homework! “I’m now getting a better understanding of the curriculum and am beginning to enjoy all the reading that I normally hate.” *Attention RRFC students: Would you like to be in our newsletter?
