EVERGREEN, CO, February 26, 2015 – Evergroove Studio, Colorado’s Solar Powered Recording Studio, is pleased to announce a new series of workshops for audio engineers, producers and musicians focused on producing the highest-quality recordings possible.

Brad Smalling, Evergroove’s founder and master recording engineer, is teaming up with fellow master producer, musician, and engineer Alan Evans and two-time GRAMMY-award winning recording engineer David Glasser to bring an unparalleled set of learning opportunities to the Denver area in the form of a Spring workshop series. The collaboration among these audio industry thought leaders has resulted in two groundbreaking workshops for audio professionals: “When You Think You’re Ready – You’re Not. How to Properly Prepare for the Recording Studio” and “Let It Bleed – The Art of Live Studio Recording.”

“It’s important for me to try to pass on what I’ve learned and make it easier for the next person who comes along. We’ve focused a lot of energy on supporting the Denver/Foothills music scene, and this is another way of ensuring that Colorado continues to be acknowledged within the industry as a center of excellence in production, recording, and mastering,” said Brad Smalling, founder and engineer at Evergroove Studio. “Historically, sound engineers have had to learn on their own, by trial and error. That’s a painful way to acquire a high-profile skillset, and worse yet, the age of the Internet has brought forth a great deal of misleading information. I’m excited to team with Alan and David this Spring to put out good information, and I think Colorado’s recording community will be just as excited about the names we’re lining up for the fall.”

“When You Think You’re Ready – You’re Not. How to Properly Prepare for the Recording Studio” is FREE at Mutiny Information Cafe in Denver on March 21, no registration required http://evergroove.com/when-you-think…eady-youre-not/. Registration for “Let It Bleed – The Art of Live Studio Recording,” from April 9-13, at Evergroove Studio can be completed at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/let-it-bleed-the-art-of-live-studio-recording-with-alan-evans-tickets-15792624164. Registration must be received by March 30, 2015.

“When You Think You’re Ready – You’re Not. How to Properly Prepare for the Recording Studio” is a free one-hour workshop focused on the characteristics common to all recording sessions. It will help people plan for a successful recording session, regardless of the musical genre or type of project. Attendees of the paid “Let It Bleed – The Art of Live Studio Recording” workshop will spend several days learning critical live recording and mixing workflow and techniques from Alan Evans at Evergroove Studio, as he works with a live band. On the final day, the workshop will move to Boulder, CO, to learn mastering wisdom from David Glasser of Airshow Mastering.

The Spring 2015 workshop series is the first in a planned series of hands-on, practical learning sessions, with topics already being planned out for the following year. “This is an exciting new format for us,” said Jenny Smalling, business manager and co-founder at Evergroove. “We’ve always considered ourselves partners and educators as much as service professionals, and this is a fantastic opportunity for us to share the experiential knowledge that’s made the ‘Evergroove sound’ a unique voice in the modern recording industry.”

Other contributions from Evergroove include sponsoring the Underground Music Showcase and “Live from the ‘Groove” broadcasts from Evergroove Studio.
