Studio re-imagined: Artists are entrepreneurs, finding power, creating sound, image and strategies for fan engagement. The classic recording studio must enable accelerated production goals, media opportunities, and new distribution models. Always, the fundamentals apply: dedication, quality, great tools, inspiring spaces, and clear communication. You have something to say. We’re listening. We can help.
Celebrating the Blue Rock
story and Vintage King's 30th Birthday!
After spending years as a singer, songwriter, touring artist, and recording engineer, Billy Crockett settled down in Wimberley, Texas, with his wife Dodee, and together they set up Blue Rock Artist Ranch and Studio.
Over the past 18 years, Blue Rock has hosted artists Lyle Lovett, Christopher Cross, Jesse Winchester, Ruthie Foster, Sarah Jarosz, the popular podcast Song Exploder, and many other influential artists. Billy sat down with us recently to tell us how Vintage King helped outfit the space with calibrated sonic tools, how he ended up becoming good friends with legendary audio pioneer Rupert Neve, and what he thinks stands the test of time.
BLUE ROCK STORY is the album-making experience reborn. To create The Heart, Donavon and the band lived onsite for 10 days, tracked, mixed, filmed and streamed it LIVE to his fans. This approach to creating, promoting, funding albums was not only visionary, it was also a blast!. The song, "Big Wave," now has over 27 million Spotify plays and this video, sponsored by Sanuk, is approaching a million views.
About Donavon: For nearly four decades Donavon Frankenreiter has been travelling the globe, first as a professional surfer and now as a musician. Born in Southern California, Donavon spent most of his youth chasing waves, turning pro at the age of 16. These days instead of surf competitions, it’s concert halls that brings Frankenreiter to town, where he entertains audiences with his unique blend of laid-back grooves, philosophical lyrics and soulful delivery. www.donavonf.com/
