Melrose in the Mix Gaining Momentum

After premiering the series in April 2017 and offering five sessions throughout the year, our Melrose in the Mix live recording sessions have continued in 2018 with a number of noteworthy shows. The series, which features locally renowned artists recording live before intimate audiences in the Melrose Center Audio Studio, also provides Melrose Center members with Audio Studio credentials the chance to assist staff engineers with session production. Thus far in 2018, local MCs Sean Shakespeare (April), EyeQ (June) and E-Turn (July) have each turned in electrifying performances. The most recent show on August 5 featured Orlando Americana legend Terri Binion, accompanied by bassist Tony Macaluso and guitarist Greyson Charnok, and received coverage in Bao Le-Huu’s This Little Underground column in Orlando Weekly.  Upcoming Melrose in the Mix sessions include singer songwriters Moody Sunshine (September 8) and Ka Malinalli (October 7.)

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!
