A few days before hitting the road with Emblem3 for their fall tour, drummer Mike Avenaim stopped by the studio for a quick interview. He talks about why he likes recording his drum tracks at Ultimate Rhythm Studios, how he prepares for sessions, how he developed his sound, and tips for drummers new to the studio. Mike has some good advice about working in the studio!

Mike has done several records with engineer Charlie Waymire at Ultimate Rhythm Studios including: Jordan Millar’s “Cold Lights On Curious Minds”, heart.beats.mind debut self-titled EP, and Reese Mastin’s “Beautiful Nightmare”, to name a few.

“Mike is a fantastic drummer and is very easy to work with. He comes in the studio very prepared and has all of his sounds pretty much dialed in. All I have to do is capture his sound without missing anything. It makes for some fun sessions!” says Charlie.

The Sonic Chameleon Records New EP! w/video

Sandesh Nagaraj, known as The Sonic Chameleon, has been working on a brand new EP due out this fall. His writing is anything but predictable and he has enlisted some amazing musicians to add to his already deep musical landscape.

“I love working with Sandesh because I never know what to expect. There are no rules, no restrictions to his writing and he lets me have that approach during tracking as well. We did some experimenting and really created a unique vibe for these songs. He always has great musicians playing with him and I’m honored to be a part of it.” says engineer Charlie Waymire.

The first single off the EP is called “Gini” and we were lucky to get a live performance from Sandesh and the fantastic Katie Campbell on vocals. Enjoy!
