Although involved in the recording business in one way or another for almost 30 years, it is only over the past sixteen years that we have actively sought to record other musicians. One of the reasons we made the “great remove” to rural Greencastle, PA was to create a space that would be comfortable, inviting and supportive in the making of self-produced CDs. We are extremely grateful to the many musicians who have entrusted their projects to us and who have given us many hours of pleasure in return. This Basement Music Sampler is a selection of one tune from the major projects we’ve recorded since moving to Greencastle. For some we have been responsible for all aspects of the product – recording, editing, mixing, mastering, graphics, serving as back-up musicians and even producers. For others, our roles were limited to engineering and playing backup as noted in the song descriptions. If you enjoy one or more of these cuts, be sure to contact the artist and order their CD. Tell them that we sent you!
