John Barön Kent - Executive Producer
Working as independent musicians ourselves, we found out first hand how difficult it is to record, produce and release music to a high standard without a record label or patrons for funding. Let alone make decent music videos!
Sure, like everyone else we could just record ourselves on our iPhone or perform live to a webcam. But it wasn't long before we realised we needed to do more than what 'everyone else was doing'. If we wanted to stand out and take our career to the next level, we had to produce higher quality content.
We built Honeytone Recordings, our own recording studio complete with a LIVE Music Video recording suite. We then acquired and mastered a lot of technology to produce our own professional music videos and audio recordings.
You could say our approach is a little maverick but as we often say, (in a classic 1940's hard-boiled detective's accent)...
"Whatever it takes........ just don't die with your music still in you!"
We both adore music of all genres and would love to help you get your work out there with a LIVE Music Video Session or a straight Audio Recording & Production Session. Let us give you all we've got and together we can save your work from disappearing in the ever expanding sea of DIY mediocrity!
Our studio and services are perfect for singer/songwriters, solo artists and duos or trios. We can accomodate just about any instrument set-up that doesn't require live drums.
NOW WE CAN HELP YOU!
THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM...
