Performing "The Border" from the CD "Take Me Away"
Recorded at Yellow Dog Studios in Austin, Texas during SXSW 2010

18 May 2010

Interested in Producing CD Projects. Available for Pro Recording Sessions Anywhere.

Excited to be Producing and Recording with Canadian Songwriter and FACTOR grant recipient, KAYA FRASER.

Up-and-coming singer-songwriter Kaya Fraser has been garnering accolades and radio play and it's easy to tell why. Her brand of intelligent pop--combining razor-sharp lyrics with seriously catchy tunes--is all too rare. Then there's her voice: warm, yet wistful, natural, yet incredibly polished. All in all, she's a contender for the ranks of legendary artists like Aimee Mann and Joni Mitchell. As of the daughter of Canadian songwriter Allan Fraser (of the critically acclaimed 70s folk duo, Fraser & DeBolt), Kaya clearly has music in her blood.

Congratulations to ROGER LEN SMITH on the release of his new CD "CLEAR BLUE SKIES" .. produced and recorded in Austin, TX.

"What impresses me about Roger Len Smith is his dedication to his storytelling craft, to his family and to his extended family of fine musicians, all of whom appear on this recording. As an honest..., hardworking artist who takes his upbeat music not only to the back roads honkytonks and lakeside cafés of Texas but also fearlessly to off-shore markets, "Clear Blue Skies" will serve him well. The title track and his guitar-grooving "In The Middle Of Something" are my favorites." Kim Deschamps, Producer
