On August 24th, 2014 NYG loaded up his car and made the trek up the windy dirt roads to RockRidge Canyon. It is here where NYG has spent his last week of summer for the past 5 years building remote studios for the Peak Performance Project's Boot Camp. The week long camp educates top indie bands on everything from songwriting and touring to stage presence, social media and marketing.
This year saw the collaboration of 24 bands (12 from Alberta and 12 from B.C.) working with producers GGGarth Richardson, Warne Livesey, Jeff Dawson, Shawn Cole, Winston Hauschild and Russell Broom. Each band paring was responsible for writing and recording a song in just two evenings.
This amazing experience wouldn't be possible without the generous contributions from Nimbus School of Recording Arts, who also supplied 8 of their top students to assist in the building of the studios and to assist the producers with recording sessions.
NYG had the pleasure of teaming up with producer GGGarth Richardson again this year. Engineering and mixing songs with Damn Fools and Scenic Route to Alaska as well as Port Juvee and Miss Quincy. All of these the extraordinary songs that were recorded this past week will be available for your listening pleasure sometime in the near future! In the meantime take a listen to tracks from the previous 5 years!
