Are you a Christian musician who has been searching for a recording studio that will compliment your faith? Perhaps you are a praise and worship leader of a church and have been contemplating recording your team, professionally.
Whatever your recording goals are, there are many recording studios around to choose from but one size does not fit all, especially when it comes to Christian music.
The last thing you want is to be recording your vocals on new song about the power of grace and walk out of the vocal booth only to hear the engineer chatting to his assistant about the girl he had the night before in explicit detail. How can one go about finding the right studio?
Joey Stuckey of Shadow Sound Studios in Macon, Georgia, understands this dilemma all too well. “Christian musicians want to record in an environment that is conducive to both their music and spirtuality.” – says Stuckey. “Partying and swearing doesn’t fit into that equation.”
Stuckey – an award winning blind guitarist, composer, recording artist, producer and engineer – offers Christian artists state of the art technology combined with his vast experience in recording and production. In addition, Joey also provides songwriting, production and arrangement services through people who are connected with Christian music and understand the genre.
Well known in the musical community, Stuckey is the youngest appointed member of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Advisory Committee. He was voted The Atlanta Society of Entertainer’s Jazz Artist of the year from 2001-2008 and in 2006, Joey was appointed the Official Ambassador of Music for Macon, Georgia by its mayor and council. He graduated Highschool at 14 and is currently a guitar instructor for Mercer University in Macon.
Some of the most notable Christian bands to record at Shadow Sound include The Blessed Blend – a sound born of native and celtic union. This Christian-based duo creates a unique sound of celtic new age and tribal music from Native American and Celtic cultures. Their album “Journey’s Through The Mist” was nominated in 2008 by the 10th Annual Nammy Awards (the Native American equivalent of the Grammy’s) for Best Gospel/Inspirational, Best World, Best Historical and Song of The Year. Stuckey and many of the session players he typically works with can be heard throughout the album.
Others include Strong Tower worship leader Deborah Hightower, a 2007 and 2008 ICM (Inspirational Country Music) Award Nominee who recorded her debut album at Shadow Sound Studio in 2005. Worship Him Alone was produced in-house and three songs were composed especially for Hightower. One of the three – “Believe,” – peaked at #3 on the Loudcity.com Christian charts in 2006. It had been aired on radio and performed on CTN (Christian Television Network) in Nashville and shown in other markets including Knoxville Tennessee, Palm Beach, Tallahassee, Fort Meyers and Pensacola, Florida, Macon, Georgia and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
