Technological advancement over the years has allowed for some artists to be able to record well at home or outside the studio setting.
BWC Studios does not begrudge said artists, instead offering Mixing and Mastering services that can take sounds captured in a non-studio setting and enhance them, transforming them from their raw form, applying finesse and pressure until they shine like diamonds.
While capturing sound is most definitely an art and one that takes years of practice to hone, mixing and mastering require a finely-tuned ear, patience and discipline and, often, decades of analysis and application to fully-realize the true sound envisioned by the artist.
Greg Dawson is confident that his technical skills, his ears (both professionally and as a rabid consumer of music) and his dedication to collaboration will ultimately provide all the necessary tools to forge any and all provided materials into the gold of the musician’s conception.
While it is inarguably easier in this day and age to record in a non-studio setting, home-recording-artists rarely have the luxury of having walls of slick amps, quality microphones and hardware, the space to properly set up and capture sound efficiently and effectively or over 15,000 dedicated hours of studio time under their belts.
Over the past two decades, Greg Dawson and BWC Studios have aggressively pursued the modern market or local scene, recording hundreds of bands in-studio and playing an integral role on a seemingly-endless list of high quality projects.
While Greg continues to be as busy as ever, he has recently made a conscious decision to more-specifically identify the artists and ideas that he feels he can work with positively and collaboratively create outstanding art. Greg feels that his resources, time and efforts would be the most well-served by musicians dedicated to their craft, willing to engage in discussion over theory and delivery; good people eager to make great music.
BWC Studios offers the opportunity to work in an environment where excessive negativity and a closed-minded approach to adaptability in process are not welcome.
This is not to be taken as a virtual “Keep Out!” sign. Greg openly encourages ALL artists to reach out to him and open up a dialogue, examination and review, so that all parties can conclude whether the relationship makes sense and, ultimately, whether or not BWC Studios will serve as said artist’s weapon of choice.
