In recent weeks several of our artists have released some awesome records. We’d like to congradulate Turtle Folk on their first full length release of Higher Plan, The Trainwrecks on their second kicking album Saddle Up, Niche on birthing the rocking So Be It and the soon to be released full length by Soap.
Already several of our remote recordings of the 2011 Savannah Music Festival have been showing up on NPR which can be streamed here: SMF Radio The Punch Brothers and Ballake Sissoko shows were highlights for us and they are ready to stream now. ... Read more.
Last year a camera crew and Gregg Allman’s crew came into EBS to shoot and track some of the tunes off his upcoming record, the studio and our audio work are featured in this one:

Another cool Savannah Music Festival show was aired on NPR last year and here’s the link to the most amazing show put on by The Renaud Garcia Fons trio in 2010:

After sending the Julie Wilde and Eric Culberson mixes off to mastering we took a couple hours off then wrapped the Soap and Byron Hatcher Band album mixes as well.
Brokn Tyme and Turtle Folk have been tracking like crazy with Brokn Tyme sitting in the mix cue and ready to roll out. We’ve been hard at work on Masi’s mix tape and the final touches are going on in the other room as I type this.
We’d like to send kudos out to the Trainwrecks on the fine job they did warming up the capacity Johnny Mercer Theater crowd for BB King. It was great to see them on the big stage and handling it with ease.
Shane’s been mixing up the Benjamin Fontenot and Canebreaks tracks and we’re getting close to installing all the cool stuff he’s got.
We’ve been doing some remote recording for the Savannah Children’s Choir, various churches and Scary is tracking the free Baroness show tomorrow night.
Gotta run, time to mix.
The studio has been buzzing all spring and summer and we’re excited about all the stuff we’ve recently wrapped up and what we’re working on now. The Eric Culberson record is in final mix tweaks this week, The Trainwrecks are one session from wrapping tracking, The Byron Hatcher Band is in the mix phase and we’ve wrapped up some more mixes for the Savannah Music Festival radio show Henry Butler, Sarah Jarosz and Kathy Mattea.
Kevin and Shane have started tracking the new Turtle Folk album and wrapped up the basic tracks last weekend. Wormsleow is back in tracking a single with their new line up and we’re working on mixing tunes for Julie Wilde for her upcoming release. At the end of July Soap comes in to start track an LP with talk of new Unnamed and Niche records gearing up in August and September with Scary at the helm.
The summer hasn’t been all good news at EBS, we would like to say goodbye and godspeed to our good friend (and neighbor) Dan Sprecher who lost his battle with cancer this month. Dan was an amazing man, his taste in music was second only to his sense of humor and we’ll miss him greatly. Only a rock drummer and amazing man like Dan could turn 3 months into 7 years of living. We’ll miss you buddy.
It’s been a busy spring, we’ve been churning out mixes of live concert recordings for the Savannah Music Festival and making some fine LPs and Eps in the process. We’re happy to be a part of the Save Nashville Series and hope to see all of you at one or all of the concerts benefitting the hard hit musicians of Music City.
In May Miles tracked and mixed the new Magazine Avenue record which is as infectous as it is fun. Scary and Kevin have been working on the Convict Fiction EP and the finishing touches are being put on the much anticipated Eric Culberson Album. the Byron Hatcher Band are in the midst of wrapping up tracking and a new Wormsleow single is in the works.
Always great to see our artists in the press, even cooler when we are too!
ERIC CULBERSON BLUES BAND
I recently heard a track from Culberson’s forthcoming studio CD, and the combination of his blistering, bluesy electric guitar and a new, more rock ‘n’ roll approach to song structure, well, it was just phenomenal…
We are digging the way Eric’s record is coming out too!
For 17 days the Savannah Music Festival offers 100 plus shows of amazing and eclectic music in our fair city. As lead audio engineer and recordist for the festival I am fortunate to witness most all of the artists in one form or another and this year, like previous years had my eyes and ears opened to all manner of new sounds.
Recording the likes of: The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Roby Lakatos, Mike Marshall, Chris Thile, Patty Loveless, Kathy Mattea, The Assad Brothers, Ruthie Foster, Sarah Jaroz, Sierra Noble, Cherryholmes, Shannon Whitworth, Renaud Garcia Fons, Mark O’Connor, Henry Butler, Bill Frisell, Bassekou Kouyate, The Clayton Brothers, Marcus Roberts, Jason Marsalis, Del McCoury and hometown hero Kristina Train was as inspirational as it was exhausting. ...

It’s been a busy spring here at EBS we’ve completed EPs for Cusses, Julie Wilde and the Bohemian Band, Mass Plastic, Shoestrings and are currently in the final stages of tracking of the Trainwrecks second album. At the mix stage April will be all about Eric Culberson’s new disc, an acoustic platter from Jefferson Fox and a slew of amazing shows from the Savannah Music Festival.
The fall has been busy at EBS, we’ve had some amazing sessions and many great times with some amazing artists. Rocktober saw the tracking of Unnamed, Black Tusk and Dead Yet? with Scary at the console. Tracking continued on the Eric Culberson and Trainwrecks albums, they’ve been busy playing gigs and we’ve been squeezing sessions in when we can, the one thing we can guarantee is that it’s gonna be well worth the wait.
During the middle of rocktober we finished up Jeff Shroeders first cd and started pre-production on Eric Britt’s new project. Rod Gonsalez laid down an EP worth of rhythm tracks in record time and we loaded up April Kelly’s tracks so we can finish overdubs and mixing on her solo debut. ... Read more.
Plenty of stuff happening at EBS these days, we’re excited to have Chris “Scary” Adams join us as the newest EBS engineer. He’s already been working on Damon and the Sh*tkickers demo and assisting on several other projects. Welcome Chris, awesome to have you aboard.
This summer some great stuff kicked off: Eric Culberson started his new record, the tunes and performances are surpassing the high bar Eric set on his last two records. Matt Wesley from Wormsloew has been working on a solo record and we’ve both been bringing in a great cast of characters to augment his songs and multi-instrumental abilities. September also saw the kick off of the Trainwrecks second record and as usual they tested our abilities to track a well heeled hard working band live off the floor like the Stones used to. 16 basic tracks in under two days! ...
