SPRING/SUMMER 2014

Hi All:

As I write this, June is winding down and July is almost upon us. It's sunny but just cool enough to be really pleasant. It's been a busy Spring. Time to get the newsletter out!

Jon Gordon Music Production is a prime provider of audio and music recording and production services. We can tailor our approach to your needs. Studio tours, consultations, budget estimates, etc. are available free, on request. Here is our current news:

Killer Tracks - ESPN - FIFA World Cup

We recently completed production of 12 Brazilian sports trailers for Killer Tracks/Universal, which are currently under exclusive license to ESPN for their World Cup coverage.  I got to collaborate with the fabulous Davi Vieira.  Joining us on vocals were Fabiana MasiliMarta Luizza and Liliana Araujo-Griffith, plus Clark Gayton on trombone, the renowned Larry Etkin on trumpet, and Jorge Continentino on pifano (bamboo flute).

ALAN MERRILL - ARROWS 40th

Singer/Songwriter Alan Merrill is best known for penning the song "I Love Rock'n'Roll". Produced by the legendary Mickie Most on RAK records, the song was first a hit in the UK for The Arrows, the band that Alan fronted in the early to mid 1970's.

Alan has just issued a limited collector's edition of the Arrows 40th Anniversary compilation CD, assembled at JGMP.  Now that it's in circulation, I can announce that Alan and I did a partial remix/reworking of the Arrows cut of "I Love Rock'n'Roll".  It was definitely a thrill to put a little of  my own spin on this classic track!

ALTO THE MOVIE - DIANE DeGARMO - SHAKE THE TREE PRODUCTIONS:

It was our great privilege to record singer Diane DeGarmo (American Idol, Ice Princess soundtrack, etc.) for the upcoming "Alto The Movie".  Diane was aided and assisted by her husband, singer Ace Young, songwriters Nini Camps and Marilyn D'Amato, producer Toni D'Antonio and director Mikki Del Monico of Shake The Tree Productions.

We recently arranged and produced singer/songwriter John Presnell's EP length CD "The Bad Guy", slated for release in the near future. In addition to myself and John, the recordings feature drummer Robbie Sinclair, violinist Carolin Pook and cellist Brian Sanders.

MORE KILLER TRACKS:

We just inked the deal to do a new album for Killer Tracks, a follow-up to 2012's "Nice Pop", on their "NYB" imprint. We are busy writing and planning this one, which will be pop music based on current American top 40.
