So, if you don't know already, I have been one of two people obnoxiously pushing a kickstarter campaign for the last 3 weeks.
The newly formed duo (Me, and Jesse Crowley) called "Tiny Boats" has been working on their debut album since early March of this year.
Tiny Boats' music could be classified as the energetic...

So, about 4 or 5 years ago, I met a guy named Jesse Crowley, and we played music together. At first we played music that other people wrote, but then Jesse got bored with that, and decided to write Christmas music instead. We recorded a few Christmas albums, and I think they turned out pretty good.
So, Jesse decided that wasn't enough...

So lately, I've been experiencing a lot of clients coming in, giving studio time as a gift, and to be honest, I think that is awesome. As always, ya never know what to expect when a new client comes in, but I've gotta say, anyone who gives the gift of music is probably someone I wouldn't mind hanging around in the studio.
As a way of saying...

Music Speaks For Itself
With everything going on that has to do with running Art City Sound, and making sure everything is taken care of, it's easy to forget what is really important. Of course, my family is, and always will be, #1 in my life, but aside from that, the most important thing in this studio is good music. Having a good time is a definite plus, but...

Well, it's actually very easy.
Within G+, search for #hangoutpost

Utah Valley = Talent!
So, I've had the opportunity for the past few months to work full time with clients from all over Utah Valley. From the sweet harmonies of By Request's soft country swing, to the relentless brutal drive of The Suffering's hardcore sound, the longer I'm in company with musicians of this area, the more I'm convinced that Utah Valley seems to be...

For those of you who ar...

So, I've been surfing around the net today, figuring out how I'm going to work in the new website with the old one and what-not, and while doing so, I found out that apparently, Art City Sound is nothing but a big piece of Volvo heavy machinery. Take a look at this link for proof. (link here, too). While you're at it, take a...

Pilot #1 / New Name
So... Yeah... Holy cow. I started writing this as a Facebook update, and quickly realized ther was too much to say, so, into the blog it goes!
The bottom line is - We are back in business, people!
As of right now, the new studio is close to being finished, but the good news is - we can record. I've got 3 channels wired up, a...

Book Of Mormon Lands
I've been reading a few books and websites lately on the "geography of the Book of Mormon", and see that it is quite a contentious point for many people! A desire to understand the BOM geography was the specific thing that got me into reading the Boook of Mormon for the first time on my own. That isn't to say that my testimony...

Two Motorcycles and The Moon
"What is a motorcycle doing in *this*?", I thought as I continued upward through the winding Spanish Fork canyon. It wasn't so much that a motorcycle was in this particular canyon, but rather in the canyon during one of the 3 most torrential downpours I've seen during my lifetime.
I was coming home from work today when about ...

Okay... This sucks. I just spent the last 10 minutes typing up a nice novel on how today was spent, and I then proceeded to accidentally delete it. How unfortunate. Let's see if I can do it again.
....nope. Sorry... I'm tired, and it's late (it's now 12:30am), and I've got to get up tomorrow morning.

A temple trip to remember
So the other night my ward had the first temple trip of the year. I was unable to hide the fact that I so badly wanted to go! I needed the peaceful easy feeling that only the temple can give, but I was also very worried at teh same time. Because the last temple trip my ward went on the youth did not behave themselves like they should've and they go...

Comcast Bit Torrent Filtering
I've been using Comcast for my personal Internet connection now for about 5 years. Personally, I think they do a great job. My connection goes down on average about once per year, and it just works really well with my lifestyle. I think the price is a bit much, but having a steady Internet connection means a lot to me, so I keep i...

The Sweetest Feeling
~I just feel so much in my heart right now. Words truly cannot express how full my heart is. I just finished watching the movie "A Far Off Place". It has always been one of my favorites since I was a little girl. The music in it has always stirred deep emotions within me. It is just gorgeous. It has a melody that tugs at my heart. I ...

Getting the Mix Right...
When I originally mixed a tune from Sugar Stone, I didn't have enough time to really nail it. I did a good enough job for the time allotted, but when the product was delivered, I thought there could be a lot of improvements made.
So, I decided to spend a few hours today seeing what I could do about it. Before I go any further, here's...

I just got done reading about and listening to a wonderful audio-bite from good ol' Steve Ballmer. Honestly, I don't understand why Microsoft keeps him employed.
Anyway... According to Mr. Ballmer, Linux is no longer free. So, with that in mind, please do not try to download Linux from here, or here, or here, or here, or here, o...

ATI fglrx vs radeonhd

For this computer, I opted to buy two acer 22-inch widescreen monitors. In doing so, I knew I would have to be up and functioning quickly with a dual-head setup running gentoo Linux. I knew this was ...

No, my cat didn't die.
No, my computer didn't fry.

Two weeks later, I add some vocals and effects, and this is what you've got.
I hope you like it. (press the ...

This microphone didn't mean much to me at the time, but something intrigued me about it. After 20 minutes or so with google, I kne...

When I was 26, 1 day after I had broken up with my...

I've only got a bit to write about it, so I'll write as much as I can.
I took off around 10:20 tonight to see what kind of damage I could do out on the streets.
I was cruising on state street in Orem when I found a Dodge Charger R/T who wanted to play. The...
