Eclectic Is The Name Of The Game With The Sonic Chameleon

True diversity is hard to find in todays music business let alone in a single artist. That’s why it’s always a pleasure when The Sonic Chameleon is in the studio because you truly never know what you’ll get. From the Jazz vocal stylings of the amazing Katie Campbell, the fusion drumscapes of Nathan Carter to the metal madness of Ray Rojo!

“Skinwalker”, a great 90’s esque rock song, is being mixed by Charlie at Ultimate Rhythm Studio. We’ll have some sound samples up as soon as mastering is done.

For more information visit The Sonic Chameleon’s Facebook Page.

These sessions have been an absolute blast! Here’s a few photos from the various sessions.

Right Hand Rule, featuring the uber talented Leslie “Mister” Jones, have been working on their new EP over the last couple of months with the most recent session featuring a fantastic horn section. David Urquidi, Sam Williams, Carlos Centeno and Leslie Jones. Right Hand Rule’s arrangements are a wide open canvas of anything goes which makes for some very interesting music and some very interesting recording sessions.

“This was such a fun session! We’ve been recording most of Leslie’s horn parts one at a time so it was great to be able to capture these guys as a group.” says engineer Charlie Waymire.

Heres an excerpt from the “Skool Me” horn section session session. Enjoy!

An Afternoon In The Studio Turns Heavy!

An Afternoon In The Studio Turns Heavy!

One day it’s a ballad, the next day it’s a funk tune. You just never know but on one particularly sunny day in Hollywood Charlie, Ernesto and Menno went a little insane and this is the result. A little hint…it’s not a ballad and it’s not a funk tune. Enjoy!
