Dear Diary: Thanks, Swamp Sistas!

Dear Diary,

The Live Recording Session: Melrose in the Mix was awesome! We had a full audience, as seating was limited, but by all accounts, it was a blast. The whole group can be seen in the photo below, and it includes Swamp Sistas Beth McKeeHannah Harber, Renee Arozqueta and Ka Malinalli, along with the studio audience, the assistants and our staff.

Here’s a video of the last song they performed:

What’s next? Well, we will be hosting a new Live Recording Session on Friday, April 21st, in association with the Florida Music Festival. It will feature Multiple Me, led by Lauren Carder. Anyone can sign up to be in the audience by completing a form at ocls.info/melroseinthemix. Like the first one, seating is extremely limited.

We can hardly wait!!

Dear Diary: Melrose in the Mix featuring Swamp Sistas

Dear Diary,

This upcoming Saturday, we are going to host our first Melrose in the Mix. It will be the first in a series of intimate in-studio recording performances as Orlando singer-songwriter Beth McKee brings her assembled Swamp Sistas Songwriters Circle to the Melrose Audio Studio for a special afternoon session. Beth will be joined by Hannah Harber, Renee Arozqueta and Ka Malinalli, as the Circle takes turns performing original material and accompanying one another before a small studio audience–all while being recorded. Seating for this is very limited, so we hope folks register for that soon. There are also a few opportunities to sign on as recording assistants, but interested members must have either Live Room or Full Audio Studio Access. We hope this will give all participants an inside look at live recording…and have fun while doing it!

Dear Diary: Script Orlando Kickoff

Dear Diary,

We had our Script Orlando Kickoff last week and it did not disappoint! The speakers, Jim Hobart and Donnie Hamlett were awesome! Though they had quite different topics and presentations, they gave us some insight on a few common things that matter to our community: making an impact, connecting, giving back. Thanks to the Bungalower for their blog piece! We’re excited that more nomination/volunteer submissions are coming in. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next one (April 20, 6:00 PM).
