Ah November!

Hey all you music listening rock n' rollers out there!

Just checkin' in to say "HI" from Sound Street! The wheels are really turnin' here at SSS these last couple of weeks. We're still in process of recording and editing drums for Armor of God, the Burma Mission record. Chris Wilson, the GREAT Chris Wilson came over on wed of this past week and rocked out one of the songs called Thianglo. It's a 4/4 tune that sounds very similar to a Jeremy Camp number. Chris NAILED the whole song first take. We went back and did a 2nd take just to have options. Sounds GREAT!

In other news, Christmas is approaching and I've had a couple of folks take me up on the Christmas present deal! Sara and Jess called me and said they wanted to record a Christmas Album for their families, this year. They're doing their own arrangements of traditional Christmas songs with just Piano and Violin! Very cool! I'm really excited about this project, cause I think it's just going to sound AMAZING! Tuesday I'll be bringing my mobile recording studio over to Fairhaven Church in Jenison to lay down the 13 tracks. I'll import that tracks to my Pro Tools Rig-edit, mix, and master them so they can be duplicated and handed out! Very cool! I'll post samples on the site!

Well, back to work! Keep in touch, give me feedback, ideas, thoughts, whatever you want! I'm here!

Drums and Video

Hey there,

The last couple of weeks have been really busy here at SSS! We tracked drums for the Burma Gospel record, which is called "Armor of God" by the way. Josh Barnaby from The Storied Life ( came over and RAWKED out drums for one of the tracks! Tha-the songwriter, guitar player, and singer approved of Josh's rockedness! The drums sound big and tasty. I'll try to post some clips sometime, somewhere.

Jake Stevens and I finished up another song for a VERY sweet demo-reel video for Custer Studio I'm hoping to post the song and video on the website, when we're finished! Check it out!

Mitch Winden from "Write Stuff Music" and I just finished up a song for Kairos Production Company! A very sweet car-commercial of sorts. Very similar in "feel" to those really hip Cadillac commercials that you see on TV. They do GREAT work and I'm hoping we can write and record more music for them!

Coming up, I'm hoping to offer some Christmas-"Gift Card" Specials. If you know of anyone who wants to do some recording, or wants lessons, or wants to do a coaching session or two; or maybe you would like to record a Christmas song for your friends and family. This is a GREAT gift that KEEPS ON GIVING, which is really cool! Let me know if you have any interest in a gift card!

I hope everyone is doing well! Keep up the good work and keep your heads up!

Juleus and Project for Burma

Hey all!

I've been working on a couple of cool projects. Number 1 is Mike Church's new band (former guitarist and singer of Still Remains), Juleus. I'm editing vocals, adding some cool effects and sounds, and mixing their new song "The Clearance"! It's a totally BAD-A song! You can check them out at: Number 2 is this really great guy I met in Recording class. He came to America from Burma 10 years ago and started a church for Burmese refugees and is recording an album to send to Burma. Christianity is strictly prohibited in Burma. Their hope is to integrate these Burmese Gospel songs into the underground Christian Youth Groups. They have very little positive media in Burma for the youth. Basically I'm taking over the project for them. Recording, engineering, producing, mixing, and mastering! Very cool! If you are interested in supporting either of these projects in any way, let me know! We're all starving artists just trying to get our art out there!

Until next time!

Be Blessed and thanks for stopping by!

Hey all you music fans out there! I want to welcome you to Sound Street's new blog! I'm looking forward to getting to know each of you! I'm also looking forward to your challenges! My hope is that Sound Street can be a fun place for ANY music lover! I have had this dream for a long time now; that readers, posters, fans, friends, and family, would challenge me and my team to write and record music on a daily or weekly basis! The more music, the more fun, the more experience, more for the resume', and more of a chance of having someone hear something that could make it "BIG!"

If you haven't already, check out the new website and give us some feedback! Be honest; if you don't like something or have an idea, let us know!

If you have a music challenge put it up on the blog OR email it to me.

What's a music Challenge, you might ask???


Darin-I want you to write a rap song, with a country beat, about bats in the attic.

If you think we can't do it, you're wrong!

Hit us up and have a BLESSED day!
