“Wishing You The Best” By Monique Sherrell Brown... Official Music Video


Monique Sherrell Brown - Wishing You The Best ( Big Country )

I had the pleasure of working with Monique from the developmental vocal stage to the final Mastering stage of this record. Her song ideas are very diverse and her story line ring true and hit home for her which makes the music seem that much more authentic. Ms Brown is a true artist that will only settle for the best and now she's 'Wishing You The Best'

Journalist Monique Grimmie wrote: 
With a swampy and bluesy infectious groove, Monique Sherrell Brown aka Monique Brown kills it in “Wishing You the Best.” Her raw and soulful voice takes center stage. 
Monique Sherrell Brown’s vocals are gritty and smooth; confident and laid-back, and downright good. 
“Hello my love. Goodbye, my love. Hello, my love. No more playing silly little games.” As she digs into every word, you will find yourself more than digging this country roots gem and the woman who sings it like she owns every last note.

Life After Desk (the loss of our mixing console..Do We Need It?)

02/24/2019

     

Well, they came to get the console today. So, we needed to be consoled. After 18 years of great service, we decided to part ways with our SONY DMX-R100 mixing console. We did this b/c no really one used the console and it started taking up too much real estate. Despite the willingness of our CEO Lee Evans to constantly upgrade, we cannot deny that it tugged at our heart a bit to see this mixer go. like losing a reliable  friend. We have so many memories, so many incredible sessions and songs made on it... now we're going thru...Life After Desk! (mixing desk)

18 years ago, we bought this console from an upcoming rapper who had just signed his record deal. He wanted the latest and the greatest to record his album on, so he took his advance and bought this. Problem was he did not have a clue how to use it. Lee said, "yeah man this thing is not really useful to you. Too much to learn. naaaa, you should get rid of it while its still new...I know,,,sell it to me at a steep discount." and so he did. According to Lee, we paid less than 1/3 of the store price and made our gear-head mackie mixer having friends very jealous  

Now its gone and  our studio A looks rather empty and sad. We need to replace it... I think. But with what?

Right now, we connected all our analog equipment directly from the patch bay to our audio interface Apogee Symphony, then to the monitors which seems to works, but we do not have direct control over our different input and output signals.

We'd  like your opinion.  What should we replace our Sony mixer with! A Digital Mixing Console?  Control Surface? (ie Slate Raven) or should we just go mixerless? What do you guys would like to see in our main studio? 
Share your thoughts with us below,  and stay tuned on our social media to find out what we decide to go with.

Chloe X Halle: From YouTuber Duo to Grammy Divas




Welcome to Motivational Monday at JAMBOX studios! Today, I would like to do a shout-out to two inspirational young ladies who wowed everybody at yesterday’s Grammys: Chloe X Halle. Their rendition of “Where is the Love”, a song originally made famous by the legendary Donny Hathaway, was definitely one of the show’s biggest musical highlights for me.

The duo’s journey started on YouTube 10 years ago, when they were uploading various performances at just 8 and 6 years old, respectively. In 2015, they suddenly took the internet by storm with their beautiful cover of Beyoncé’s “Pretty Hurts”, and even Queen B herself took notice. Bey shared the video on her Facebook page and soon had her label, Parkwood Entertainment, reach out to the girls to sign them. Since then, the siblings have been included in the Lemonade visual album alongside superstars like Serena Williams, Zendaya and Amandla Stenberg, and have even joined Beyoncé on her Formation tour. Chloe X Halle released their debut album “The Kids Are Alright” in March 2018 and earned their first two career Grammy nominations for “Best Urban Contemporary Album” and “Best New Artist”. Although they did not win in either category yesterday, they are still winners in my book, and I can’t wait to see where their journey will take them next. Many other inspirational stories unfolded in front of our eyes last night, with underdog Kacey Musgraves winning “Album of the Year” (among others) and Cardi B being the first female solo act to be honored with the Grammy for “Best Rap Album”.

The takeaway should be that if you have a dream, make the first step, no matter how small it seems. You may think that you are not talented enough, that you need more time to polish your craft, you may be waiting for things to fall in place. Yet, nowadays you can get very far with enough determination and willingness to put yourself out there.

JAMBOX Entertainment remains steadfast in their support of upcoming artists of all genres… We understand the struggle! We’ve been through it, too. We are here to provide you with the highest quality recording and music services to help take your music career to the next level.

JAMBOX Entertainment Salutes Dr Martin Luther King

Image

 

JAMBOX ENTERTAINMENT salutes the honorable Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on this special day!
 
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. became the predominant leader in the Civil Rights Movement to end racial segregation and discrimination in America during the 1950s and 1960s and the leading spokesperson for nonviolent methods of achieving social change.
 
Throughout the extreme racism hatred and bigotry of the 1950s and 60s, through the violence rapes, and murders of innocent Blacks and minorities, Dr. King stood up and led non-violent marches and demonstrations that drew national recognition. His demonstrations lead to extreme changes in the laws for the civil rights of Black and minorities first in the Southern states and then around the country. His "I Had A Dream" speech is one of the most emotional, eloquent and famous in American History
 
This day is a day of remembrance for the legendary achievement that Dr. King had against extreme and life threatening odds. Dr. King has since become not only a significant part of Black History, but significantly shaped American History for the better. We must always stand strong and pave the way for those that will come after us. Let's set a great example to the youth and genuinely represent our slogan, "With Liberty and Justice for All"!
 
Check out the Martin Luther King Story below!
(its a great watch!)

Congratulations to Suzanne Hartmann - Lost 100 lbs Nov 2018

Hello Readers:

Today I'd like to switch it up from music and educational to the motivational. I have so much admiration and respect for people that have the determination and discipline to set hard to achieve goals for themselves and reach those goals and as a result, upgrade their quality of life. They are truly strong driven people.  

This is my partner Cathy's niece Suzanne Hartmann Gonzalez. She has been struggling with her weight for years. Last year, she radically changed her diet and eating habits. This year, on her birthday, she reached her goal of 100 lbs lost... and she's still going. One heck of an achievement by anyone's standards.  Below is a copy of the Facebook post she posted on her birthday just passed. 



🎈Happy Birthday to me!🎈
This year for my birthday, I gave myself the best gift....The gift of better health. On birthdays, a popular question asked is "Do you feel any different now that you are a year older?" Well, as of 12:15 am exactly on my birthday, I officially confirmed that I have lost EXACTLY 100 pounds (so far). So my answer to that question this year will be "yes I feel different, I feel better than I have in many many years"! I am coming public with this private information for a few reasons.
Reason 1- it's not that easy to hide anymore, lol. I think the cats out of the bag with my "secret".
Reason 2- well heck, I am pretty damn proud of my accomplishments of dieting and exercising to reach this moment.
Reason 3- to prove to everyone, that if you really put your mind into something, you will achieve your goals. Not just with weight loss. With anything in your life. I am living proof that hard work and determination is the key to success. The hardships and events in my life these past years have taken a toll on my health. Taking care of myself was last on my priority check list. One day I remembered a promise I made to my mom literally on her death bed, and it just CLICKED in my head. That was it, I need to do this, I CAN do this! And now, here I am. I questioned myself if I should speak so openly about this on Facebook. But it really comes down to knowing that if this inspires at least one of my friends to take that extra step for THEMSELVES, then so be it! You need to remember to take the time to take care of YOURSELF.
If you made it this far, I would like to thank all my friends and family throughout this process (which isnt done yet) that has encouraged me and supported me, it really means alot!
Good night all, going to get some rest so I can wake up and celebrate my birthday!!!!
 — feeling fantastic.

A Tribute To The Talented Musician Tyrone Powell R.I.P




We at JAMBOX Entertainment post this blog in loving memory of our friend and valued client, Tyrone Mark Powell. 

Aside from being one of our most valued clients for several years, Tyrone has impacted the lives of many with his work. 

He is responsible for arranging, producing, orchestrating AND composing for renowned award-winning shows such as NBC’s “THE OFFICE”, ABC's "ALL MY CHILDREN", CBS's "THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS" and MORE.

Tyrone was a man who dedicated a lot of his time to music related activities. He would play the piano at restaurants, nursing homes, church services, engagements, night clubs, Bar Mitzvahs, you name it! Tyrone had been playing the piano since the age of seven, with a repertoire consisting of about 2000 songs,

With such an extensive musical background, he still managed to acquire a substantial amount of legal experience. In 1996 he began working as an Agency Attorney handling child abuse, neglect cases and permanency hearings in the Family Court.

Not to mention, this Omega Psi Phi Brother graduated cum laude in the top 10% of his law school class. Since then, his career did nothing less than excel.

Serving as an Assistant Attorney General in the Litigation Bureau of the New York State Attorney General’s Office. He represented New York State Agencies, Judges, public officials, and public
employees.

Tyrone has devoted so much of himself to giving back whether it was through music and entertainment or through the law and legal justice. Ty was an inspiration to us all and we.. his JAMBOX Recording Studios family will miss him dearly.

Lee Evans talks Career and Advice with Recording Connection


Our very own Lee Evans talked to Recording Connection about his career, advice for those who want a career in music, and more. With over three decades of experience in the music industry, he reveals some of the key things that have helped make him successful. Evans touches on the importance of never critiquing an artist without offering them a "fix". If you just tell an artist that they sucked, it doesn't help foster a good creative relationship between producer and artist. He also mentioned that "A lot of Artists are a bit insecure about what they want to do. So you have to make them feel secure about working with you..." To hear more wisdom, check out the full article.
