This Spring, Kings of Leon recorded in Avatar Studio A, working with producers Jacquire King and Angelo Petraglia on tracks for their upcoming album. King engineered the sessions, with assistance from Bob Mallory.

Avatar also recently hosted a Film Scoring Workshop, a joint program presented by Columbia University Film School and ASCAP. Four composers from the workshop recorded and mixed their scores to short films in Studio C with instructor/producer Alex Steyermark and engineer Jason Stasium. The shorts were submitted to the annual Columbia University Film School Film Festival, for screenings in NYC and LA.

And the music to a long-lost Broadway musical revue, Life Begins at 8:40, by Harold Arlen, Ira Gershwin and Yip Harburg, was recorded in Avatar’s Studio A with producer Tommy Krasker and engineer Bart Migal, assisted by Rick Kwan and Fernando Lodeiro.

Life Begins At 8:40 originally opened on August 27, 1934, at NYC’s Winter Garden Theatre and ran for 237 performances. The original performance materials from the show were scattered and lost after the Broadway run, until pieces of the work were rediscovered at the Music Division of the Library of Congress and the Shubert Theater Archives in New York City. From these pieces, the original piano-vocal score and orchestra parts were reconstructed.

Avatar also hosted JazzReach’s Metta Quintet who recorded a few tracks from their project, “Big Drums, Small World,” in Studio B with producer (and JazzReach founder) Hans Schuman, engineer Jim Anderson assisted by Lodeiro. “Big Drum/Small World” features new commissions by prominent internationally recognized jazz composers from countries as diverse as West Africa, Israel, Cuba, Iraq, Puerto Rico, India, Spain, Brazil, China and the United States. JazzReach is a nationally recognized New York City-based non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, performance, creation and teaching of jazz music.

Other notable sessions recently at Avatar include: Corinne Callen, indie artist and winner of Avatar’s 2010 Pre-CMJ drawing for a free day of recording, recorded in Studio B with engineer Justin Gerrish; Teddy Thompson recorded in Studio C with producer David Kahne and engineer Roy Hendrickson; The Juilliard Jazz Ensemble recorded in Studio B with musical director and producer Carl Allen, engineer Katsu Naito assisted by Aki Nishimura.

CMJ Review: Corinne Callen and Gulf of Michigan
From our reviewer Archie, a sum-up of Corinne Callen & Gulf of Michigan at the Delancey last week. The October 21st performance was a part of CMJ’s week of musical mayhem.

Corinne Callen made a special CMJ appearance Wednesday night at the Delancey, moonlighting from NYC pop-punk mavens “Le Mood,” with whom she normally appears. With her sweet country-pop style, sunny blond tresses, and laid back stage presence, Callen evoked the specter of the lovelorn singer-songwriters who populated Los Angeles in the 1970s. Her lovely vocal lines drew on classic melodic tropes that proved none the worse for wear in her capable hands. While she didn’t quite transform the Delancey into the Troubador, she still delivered a poignant taste of sun-bleached wistfulness to the Lower East Side this night.

"With her sweet country-pop style, sunny blond tresses, and laid back stage presence, Callen evoked the specter of the lovelorn singer-songwriters who populated Los Angeles in the 1970s. Her lovely vocal lines drew on classic melodic tropes that proved none the worse for wear in her capable hands…" -CMJ Review: Corinne Callen and Gulf of Michigan, Article from MTV Iggy Blog

Corinne Callen moved from Tallahassee, Florida to New York City in the fall of 2004 to pursue her career in music. It seemed fitting to move north, regardless of her southern exposure, considering her family roots were from just outside of the city, and her own grandmother had graced many a New York City stage as a big band singer in the 1950s and '60s. Nonetheless, being born and raised in Polk County Florida (home to Gram Parsons) certainly fueled a taste for classic rock and alternative country inspired sounds, which continues to be the base of her musical influence.

Corinne played often during that time at local NYC establishments such as The Sidewalk Café (Anti-Hootenanny), CBGB's Gallery, Sine Bar, Parkside Lounge, Bar 13, and Pianos.

Eventually, she began collaborating with her cousin, Marco Argiro (The Killing Floor) and his longtime friend, Kenton Langstroth, in a retro-rock, power-pop group called The Mood. Now titled, Le Mood (including Brian Karp and Rob Draghi), the group has played nationally and internationally over the course of the past five years (CMJ 2007 & 2008, SxSW 2007, the "In the City Festival" Manchester, UK 2008, etc.) gaining much success and exposure in radio play, licensing opportunities (MTV, CMT, etc.), notable showcases, and production/engineering collaborations. 

After a series of self-released solo EPs (“A Case Kept Closed” 2005, “New Moons” 2007) and various musical collaborations including her involvement with Le Mood, Corinne began production on what was to become ”Blow the Cover” with her engineer friend and collaborator, Richard Maheux. They began the sessions in her Brooklyn apartment in the spring of 2009 eventually moving the sessions to 66 Rivington Studios on the Lower East Side Manhattan. Fellow Le Mood members, Kenton Langstroth (guitar) and Brian Karp (bass) soon joined her efforts in the recording process in addition to Karp's longtime friend, Rob Draghi on drums. They completed nine tracks over the course of the year with Richard Maheux as engineer and contributing produce

In April of 2010 Corinne and the band went into Avatar Studios to record three new tracks, including one written by guitar player Kenton Langstroth with engineer Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend). The tracks were completed and mixed by Justin at D.N.A. Studios NYC. "Blow the Cover", Corinne's first full-length release, combines these two studio projects. The album was mastered at The Lodge NYC by Joe La Porta (Beach House), and self-released in November 2010.

Over the course of her life and musical opportunities, Corinne has been finding her own unique sound, which explores rock (60s, 70s, 90s), folk, alternative, indie, retro-pop, new wave, country, and blues music. Corinne often gets a reference for a "west-coast '70s sound". The title track "Blow the Cover" was written on a vintage ukulele that her father purchased for her on a whim at a Winter Haven antique shop. She is constantly inspired to learn new instruments that take her writing perspective to new levels. The track was featured on Stylecaster’s “Model Meets Nature: Behind the Scenes” Fall Fashion Editorial. Other album tracks were featured on “Women Lead the World” and “Her Pet Peeves” games for the Iphone, as well as on NBC’s Thread’s “Ultimate Fashion Week Playlist “ for Ann Yee’s Spring 2010 collection show. On October 21, 2010, Corinne was part of a chorus/glockenspiel ensemble that accompanied Grammy winning artists Ok Go at the Guggenheim Museum during the globally streamed YouTube Plays Biennial Award show.

Corinne now lives primarily in East Nashville, TN and is currently focusing her efforts on her new band American Dream (www.reverbnation.com/americandreammusic). Corinne and her solo band continue to perform between American Dream shows, and have plans to record new material in the future.
