LITCHFIELD – Tucked away in a quiet corner of Campville Road in the city’s Northfield neighborhood is On Deck Sound Studio, Tracy Walton’s creative space, where vocals and instruments come together to create incredible music.

Walton, a singer and musician who has recorded solo and in collaboration with hundreds of performers, has found his latest niche in the production world, helping new artists and longtime professionals record new albums and often a accompanying video. Singer-songwriter Kristy Flagg has just completed an album, and singer Riley Cotton is also recording an album with Walton’s band.

In 2020 and 2021, Walton’s concert schedule was cut short by the pandemic. He had a concert planned at the Warner Theater in 2021, but it still hasn’t been rescheduled. During this time, he is very busy with a variety of artists, all of whom want to share their music with the world.

“I was planning on (touring) 20 or 30 states after releasing my last album in 2019, and that never happened,” he said. “But I was already in this mode of production, and it’s my job now … I’m set up here to do this.”

On Deck is a sound studio complete with space for drums, guitar, and other stringed instruments – many of which hang on the wall in the same room – as well as keyboards and a piano. Outside the studio is the control room where he records the music and works with the artists.

For Flagg’s album, Walton plays guitar and vocals; he is joined by drummer Steve Peck, guitarist Jeff Howard and pianist Glenn Nelson. Taking the singer’s voice and adding those components is the process of creating songs for the album, he said.

“I’m doing whatever it takes to make this record,” he said. “Who inspires them? And who is the best musician to play that person’s music? It’s my job.

“When a person comes to me as a singer-songwriter, they have their song; it’s the only way they’ve ever heard it, ”he said. “I have to find out who are the best musicians to play this music and put them together with the singer. That’s my philosophy: to find the team that can make great records and count on them to come and create a community on the bridge.

Walton also works with the group “Growing Giants” which he says “is becoming a group”. The hard rock sound of the band is a combination of the vocals of vocalist Rob Zawista, drummer Matt Starr, who performs for Kiss’ Ace Frehly, and other longtime musicians.

“I’ve known Rob since middle school and we’ve played at clubs in the area together. We once said, ‘Let’s do something’ and this is what it looks like, ‘Walton said. “There’s an amazing group of guys doing this. “

Walton is from Torrington and a graduate of the Hartford Conservatory. He previously taught at the National Guitar Workshop and wrote three books on bass for Alfred Publishing. He also released three solo albums. In the mid-2000s, he and singer Julia Autumn-Ford formed the duo, Belle of the Fall, which performed locally and on tour. Autumn-Ford recently joined On Deck as an assistant engineer and videographer.

On his website for On Deck, Walton tells readers about his studio, “The studio is located in the woods of northwestern CT, so if you’re looking for a bustling town for your record, this isn’t it. However, if you want to get away from it all to relax and make a good record this would be the place for you … Every day you will find Glen Nelson here following an organ part, Julia Autumn Ford posing backing vocals killer, Steve Peck crushing a drum track, Ben Dean, Pete Adams, Jeff Chen, etc. I am fortunate to have extremely talented friends.

These friends are able to play a variety of genres, from folk and Americana to jazz, rock, reggae and funk.

“I’m also working on a gospel album right now,” he said. “Anything with live instruments, I can do. “

Joanne Cash, sister of Johnny Cash, sings on a number of songs on this particular album.

“I think she’s 80 years old now,” he said. “She looks pretty amazing. The idea of ​​any recording is to find the center of a circle of musicians and add those pieces to the sound. People come up with a song and we have to turn it into a (performance) with a band. “

On Deck can also do album art, photography, CD setups, and video.

“We’re all-inclusive from start to finish,” Walton said.

His next step as a producer is to take a specific group of artists and do a project together, “to do something brilliant,” he said.

“Twenty years ago I was writing books and teaching, and I loved it; but I was looking for something else, ”he said.

Joy Division is one of the most revered bands of all time. Post-punk ice cream at its best, without their pioneering steps the music itself would be very different. A group of mythical proportions, they can count The Cure, Bloc Party or even Danny Brown among their fans. The quartet captured the dark essence of late 1970s Britain and infused it into their music. They captured a time and a place, which few groups have been able to do with such ease.

However, the group was not always so respected. The journey to become the Joy Division began one fateful evening, June 4, 1976. That night, friends Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook separately attended the now iconic Sex Pistols show at Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester. The couple were galvanized by the show, and Sumner later recalled that the Sex Pistols “destroyed the myth of being a pop star, of a musician being some kind of god you had to worship.” After that night, anyone could be a rockstar.

Punk was here to stay, and it was going to engulf everyone it met, including Sumner and Hook, who by the end of the decade would be hailed as heroes of British music. The day after the show, spurred on by the energy the Pistols show had awakened in him, Hook borrowed £ 35 from his mother and bought a bass guitar. Sumner followed suit and acquired a guitar for himself. The budding duo were ready. The couple formed a group with his friend Terry Mason, who had also attended the concert. Also inspired, Mason bought a drum kit.

From there, the trio invited their school friend Martin Gresty to join the singer, but refused after getting a job at a local factory. They subsequently placed an ad in the local music center, the Virgin Records store in Manchester. An acquaintance Ian Curtis, whom they knew from attending shows, responded and was hired immediately, without an audition. About Curtis, Sumner explained that they “knew he was going to get along well and that’s what we based the whole group on. If we loved someone, he was in it ”.

Now that the composition was finalized, all they needed was a name. After rejecting names such as “Stiff Kittens”, they finally opted for “Warsaw” as a nod to David Bowie’s track “Warszawa”. The group made their live debut on May 29, 1977, with Buzzcocks, Penetration and John Cooper Clarke. Interestingly, Mason’s tenure didn’t last long and he never played the concert. He was replaced by Tony Tabac, who joined the group just two days before the show.

Paul Morley, who saw the band again in NME, gave newcomers the exposure they were looking for. That didn’t mean they were highly regarded, however. The band found themselves hated on stage, which has always remained a mystery, even to those who were there. When discussing Warsaw, John Cooper Clarke made an honest claim about Joy Division’s early form. He said: “Back when I knew them as Warsaw, I saw something in them. Or should I say, I haven’t seen anything different from the rest of the punk bands on the scene.

Adding: “Warsaw was no worse or better than anyone else, so why they attracted so much animosity was a mystery to me. I mean none of them could perform a lot, but like I said limited technical skills were one of the strengths of punk rock and a big part of its charm.

Either way, the end was near for Warsaw. Tabac was replaced in June by Steve Brotherdale of the punk group The Panik. Brotherdale even attempted to get Curtis to join The Panik by inviting him to an audition, which didn’t help much with the rest of the group. This iteration of Warsaw recorded five demo tracks at Pennine Sound Studios in Oldham; However, the rest of the group was growing more and more uncomfortable with Brotherdale’s overly aggressive personality, and tensions soon boiled over.

One day the group had had enough. On their way home from the studio, they pulled over and asked the drummer to check for a flat tire, but when he got out of the car, they accelerated. This was the start of the transition to Joy Division.

In August, the group found themselves placing more ads, but this time they were looking for a drummer. Stephen Morris, who attended school with Curtis, was the only respondent. Recalling the appointment of Morris, Deborah, the widow of Ian Curtis, said that he “fits perfectly” into the fold, and that subsequently Warsaw has become a “complete ‘family’”.

As well as being maligned on the Manchester scene, the group constantly struggled with confusion with the name of famous London punk band Warsaw Pakt, so they rebranded themselves as Joy Division in early 1978.

Taken from the name of a sexual slavery wing of a Nazi concentration camp, the somber name set a precedent for the group moving forward. Also, the name change was well due because at the time, they started to move away from outright punk and broadened their sound, driven by Hook’s basslines and synths. Warsaw was finally dead.

In December 77, the group recorded their first EP, An Ideal for Living, and performed their first show as the Joy Division on January 25, 1978. They were about to take the world by storm and change the trajectory of music forever. This chapter of their career was not to be without its own dose of great hardship, but it is a story for another day.

There is nothing warmer than hanging out with a group of talented musicians who come together, playing in blissful harmony. Benee sums it up beautifully with his new single, “Doesn’t Matter”.

There is something uniquely comfortable about “Doesn’t Matter”. The song doesn’t take long to get started, with just a few bars of the guitar looping looping as Benee steps in with her gorgeous vocals. The melody in which it runs through the very upbeat chord progression gives that bittersweet feeling to the composition, especially in the second half of the first chorus, especially on the lines “maybe I’m consumed with my mind / Does that hurt me? / Maybe, well. ”There’s something pretty ethereal about that in particular, especially with the lyrical content on it. It serves as a pre-chorus of sorts, since this line is repeated several times during the progression without change in the production, which is reserved for the choir itself. The simple bass / guitar / drums / vocals / synth composition of the verses is preserved in the chorus, filled in by a brief pre-chorus, but layered with harmonies and floating sounds that perfectly elevate the dynamics.The chorus is just as catchy as that aforementioned line, and its simplicity will keep you humming the tune for days on end.

“Doesn’t Matter” is a very special song that contains many values ​​without belonging particularly to any genre, and that’s because it doesn’t try to fit any mold. It just ‘just’ is, and that’s what makes it so fun and comfortable. Benee did a terrific job capturing the cinematic feeling of falling out with friends, while also being reinforced by some very difficult production elements to organically capture in an actual jam setting. And best of all, it makes it seem effortless, going perfectly with the theme of simply existing without trying.

Ah, the new year. A time to put the pressure on yourself to be better than last year, to give up your resolve by February.

There are some common ones: losing weight, traveling more – good luck – or maybe you want to learn a new skill. As someone who goes through this process, I will say that it is much more achievable as an adult than you might think, as long as you are willing to complete it a few times first.

I recently took up the bass guitar again. It sounds like a simple instrument, but I still made a few beginner mistakes that I hope you can learn from.

The first bought the equipment on a whim. Sure, I got a nice bass for a decent price, but it stuck around for months, a stark reminder of my failed attempt to be the next Krist Novoselic.

People are generally eager to bring others into their world, especially with foreign hobbies. I would give anyone a chance on my racing simulator, and should have tried before buying here too.

Be aware, however, that you are going to suck the first time.

I went there expecting to shred like Flea, and it definitely wasn’t. A little research before the performance would have saved me from standing there and asking “how do I play a G?”

I was lucky to find people who let me know if I was improving. It’s hard to say, especially with creative things. Just someone saying “it was better” is a pretty good measure for me.

Even though we walked in blindfolded a few months ago, we are now considering recording. Not bad for a guy who just picked up the instrument.

So if you’re still thinking about this New Year’s resolution, take Daniel Ricciardo’s advice: Lick the stamp and send it on a new skill.

You might find your new passion, or you might find what it isn’t – win anyway.

BROKEN released a short teaser video for the group’s seventh studio album.

The 42-second clip, which can be seen below, was accompanied by the message: “So it starts … # nowiknowmyabcs… How about you? # SD7”.

Last month, BROKEN a singer Brent Smith 95.9 The rat‘s Carl Crafts on the more ‘stripped down’ approach of the new LP: “We wanted to put it all on the line. And what I mean by that is we’ve proven that we can make these records that there is a lot of musicality involved, and we’ve layered our records over the years because we love the music and we love the sound and we try to make some really cinematic records. So with that you have a lot of instruments that aren’t only drums, bass, guitar and vocals – we use orchestras, we use a lot of synths, we use a lot of techniques that… we don’t believe in… don’t tie your hands when making a record . Make whatever record you want to make. And ultimately, though, what we wanted to do with this album was make it as fierce as the other records but not use as much of the style that we’ve done in the past with it. the superposition on and layering guitars, adding a lot of synths, stacking vocals. “

He continued: “I am from Freddie mercury school when it comes to vocals, layering, backgrounds and things of that nature because I try – I say ‘try’ – to try to use my voice as an instrument. But it’s really less is more. So the majority of this record is authentically drums, bass, guitar. The are piano songs; there are two really, really very intense piano songs that are going to be in BROKEN Seven. But we wanted to make a real rock record, we wanted to make a real record where we just focus on making sure the band is heard the way the band needs to be heard. So not a lot of overlays. This does not mean that it is less powerful; it’s just that we don’t have a lot of stacks. We just put things left to right in stereo, pushing everything forward. The vocals aren’t layered – not a lot of effect on the vocals, so not a lot of delays and reverbs and things like that. A lot of the vocals on the record are dry and a bit tight in your face. “

Black-smith also talked about the lyrical themes covered on the new BROKEN album, claiming they were inspired at least in part by the ongoing pandemic and the resulting impact on the community, residents and businesses.

“Going through everything the world went through last year, and we wrote the majority of the record last year, and this year we couldn’t close our eyes to everything that was going on,” a- he declared. “And we’re talking on this record, and we’re speaking on this record – we’re not trying to dance around certain topics. We’re trying to be very honest and very real. In a lot of ways, it’s a very humanitarian issue. registration.”

Ask if BROKEN is going to “piss people off” with some of the lyrical positions that are taken on the next LP, Black-smith said: “Maybe. But the problem is, I don’t necessarily think it’s about pissing people off; it’s about understanding what we’ve all been through but where we need to go. now. I think it gets lost. It’s never meant to be on … And I say this because I’m very, very bold and very honest about it. This country, it’s not called the Divided States of America; it’s called the United States of America, and we want people to understand that it is up to people; it is up to us. And we are able not only to work with each other, to grow with each other. But when you have some people in power who don’t have your best interests in mind, you have to stand up and make your voice heard. When I see what’s going on with regard to freedom of movement. expression of people and that it’s censored and people are pushed into a corner because of their opinions and everything. ez be able to have conversations with each other in order to get real action to happen for positive change. “

Regarding the first single from BROKENthe seventh album by, due out later this month, Brent said, “It honestly tackles everything the company has handled from a planetary platform, if you will – not just here in the US, but around the world – what the past 18 months have been like. , and, at least in our opinion, how we should move forward.

“Look, the record… We’re talking about things we’ve never talked about before,” he revealed. “We open the conversation on different topics that BROKEN never addressed. We have the full support of our label, our management and hopefully our fans, whether they’ve been here from day one or just finding out who we are. But it’s a record that I think some people will find controversial, I think some people will find very provocative, especially for BROKEN, but it’s also something that we think is very important and necessary… Don’t get me wrong either, there is a lot of triumph on this record, but there is also a lot to have to take step back and go, ‘What’s really going on? And how can we prevent that from happening if it is going to be something negative for the human race as a whole? Our society, the way we live with each other, we share this planet with many different organisms and creatures. It’s not just about us. It’s important that everyone really takes a step back and not always. We have to work together – like, all from U.S; we have really we have to start working together and really creating a positive change not only for society but also for this beautiful planet that has been given to us. “

The sequel to 2018 “Warning warning”, which is tentatively due this spring, was recorded in part at a new studio in Charleston, South Carolina, run by the group’s bassist and producer. Eric Bass.

In October, BROKEN announced their 2022 North American tour, “Sinedown Live In Concert”. Kicking off in San Francisco on January 26, the upcoming 22-date outing will see the acclaimed quartet travel across the West Coast, Canada and more, with stops in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Las Vegas, Seattle, Calgary, Toronto. , and Montreal. POP EVIL and AYRON JONES will support on certain dates.

Album review: Rage Of Light - Redemption

Record brings dazzling music

The Swiss metal band Rage Of Light was formed in 2015 by Jonathan Pellett (Trophallaxy and Dysrider), and in the same year Pellett chose singer Melissa Bonny and guitarist Noé Schüpbach to be part of Rage Of Light. In 2016, the group released their first EP In pursuit of a reflection, then in 2018, the group signed a huge contract with Napalm Records, which led them to release their first album imploder. Shortly after the debut of their debut album, Rage Of Light began to tour, but things came to a standstill when the pandemic hit the world. In 2021, Bonny decided to step down from the group to focus on other musical projects and when Bonny left, Pellett and Schüpbach chose singer Martyna Halas (Ascend The Hollow and Telergy) to become the third member of Rage Of. Light.

Earlier this month, the band released their second album Redemption, and each track is filled with dynamic vocal performances from Pellett and Halas. Schüpbach’s guitar playing shakes the soul with choppy riffs. Pellett’s drum / keyboard set contributes to the havoc with a bleeding ear sound. Although Redemption is the band’s second album, Rage Of Light proves how much they can thrive in today’s metal scene.

The thunderous “Iciness” has a powerful vocal performance from Pellettt and Halas. The chemistry between Pelt and Halas is so strong because the two singers have different styles, and when their talents collide, the noise is incredible. “Iciness” is the first song on the album, and both singers know how to shock people with their vocals.

“Crusade for the Sun” is a headbanger that carries a heart-shaking drum played by Pellett. It’s nice to hear a musician who knows how to play deep, rheumatic beats that match the same tone the rest of the band is playing. Plus, the way he quickly changes drum style brings a feeling of rock and metal. “Crusade for the Sun” is a shattering song that shows how Pellett is able to create his own madness through his playing on the drums.

A booming track, “Chasing a Reflection” has a guitar playing just from Schüpbach. Throughout this piece, Schüpbach creates accurate riffs capable of shaking the veins of those who listen to him. The best part is the bass guitar‘s deep notes due to how each rumble adds an extra touch of craziness. Schüpbach plays some excellent riffs on “Chasing a Reflection”, and people might find themselves playing aerial guitar while music blaring from the speaker.

Mystical “Breaking Infinity” is a composition which has a wonderful keyboard playing by Pellett. Besides singing and playing the drums, Pellett can bring creativity with his keyboard skills. The sound of the piano playing lightly in the background brings a nice mix of calm and madness, and the keyboard keeps listeners engaged. “Breaking Infinity” is a song well played by Pellett.

The beautiful “Beyond” is a little different from the rest of the tracks. The group plays at the harmonic level. Although there is a loud bang of metal towards the end, the vocals of Pellett and Halas are magnificent due to the way the two singers sing with passion, and the bold instrumentation matches the harmonic style with a sharp sound. “Beyond” is magnificent in the way the vocal and musical arrangements are beautifully played.

Rage Of Light has his feet on the accelerator pedal with Redemption, and the group has a bright future ahead of them.
