Late 2013

Wow! 2013 has been CRAZY. First off Jesse’s book, Get More Fans: The DIY Guide To The New Music Business has been a MASSIVE success and is one of the best selling music business books of 2013. It has received tons of glowing reviews. As you can see in the picture to the left, Jesse was recently featured in Tape Op Magazine, a proud moment in any producer’s career. Additionally, Jesse is teaching a really cool class on DIY mastering for the very cool folks at CreativeLIVE. If you are trying to get better at recording you should definitely check out all of the amazing tutorials they have up.

The real question is, what has been going on at CFS? We have done some really cool records with Crosstown Train, Strange Times, Drunken Pumpkin, Dead Leaf Echo, LovElectric, Garden of Arcadia, Merciless, Benny Mardones, Pony, Darren Smith, Late Cambrian,  Noise Brigade, Ascending From Ashes, Save Face, Somos, The Regressives and a couple of other cool projects that are still under wraps.

Jesse has mastered some great records from Thief Club, Those Modern Cavemen, Stug Fent, Sensual Harassment, Ally Burnett, The Naked Heroes, Figures of Light, On Your Marks,Flaming Nosebleed Streetz On Fire, Unifier, My Brother My Sister and about one hundred more. The coolest thing Jesse got to do in recent times was a vinyl remaster for Acceptance’s classic record,¬†Phantoms. The record has long been one of favorites and getting to be a part of this amazing release was a highlight of our long career.

Mike has been producing records with groups like Joyride, The Ride Down, Fun University and a bunch of other cool acts.

The majority of the past few months was taken up doing the new Morning Glory record. We did 27 tracks with them and it truly exceeded our own high expectations. Brian from Dresden Dolls absolutely killed the drum tracks. If you don’t believe us check out the first Halloween-themed sneak peak.
