Give us a shout

TRC Studios is now a private facility, and sessions are by invitation only. But we do sessions every week and accept mixing projects on a selective basis. To see about having us mix your stuff, click here or send an email with a demo or a rough mix to remix@trcstudios.com. We'll get right back to you.

If you are in Nashville or going to be in Nashville, send a note to remix@trcstudios.com and we'll see about getting you in for a session (record, overdub, or mix). We only work with friends, but we are making new friends every week.

A shout-out to Mike Dungan at UMG. We were looking for some 24-track masters from the 70s on groups recorded at TRC and released on Mercury. We wanted to get them into Pro Tools for preservation and remix. 40 years on, Mercury is just one of something like 1000 labels under UMG, and Mike and crew made the effort to track these down. Alas, they found where the tapes should be, and found the 2-track masters, but the 24-tracks were missing. Not an unanticipated outcome. Very much appreciate the effort, though. ... See MoreSee Less

Do you, YOU, feel like I do?

One of the great guitarists of all time.

Peter was at TRC for a The Bob & Tom Show on Q95 Live Day in the 80s. He lives quietly in Nashville now, but still has his chops and tours occasionally.On This Day - April 10th 1976. Peter Frampton shows everyone the way as his Frampton Comes Alive! album hits #1 on Billboard's 200 album chart. It spent 97 weeks on the chart with ten in the top spot.
To date it has sold over 17 million copies worldwide.

Best live album ever!

Nashville? He was in Cincinnati last I talked to him. ..

First album I ever bought as a kid with my own money. His voice box solos amazed me and still do. Great post !

Saw him at Foellinger a couple years ago. Great concert.

Absolutely!

Great day yesterday in the studio with guitar man Jason Harris . Got tracks for five of my classic rock covers, with Jason outperforming Keith Richards and Randy Bachmann, among others. Get a load of that pedalboard. Emulates every head/amp combo and effect you could ever want. Gives him more room in his trunk for guitars. ... See MoreSee Less

As Vince Gill said last night, he's a "60-year-old new kid in town". We went to see him perform with the Eagles, and were not disappointed. He sang lead on most of the Glenn Frey tunes (Deacon Frey sang a couple), and also led a rousing version of "Next Big Thing". Wore his Preds jersey, sang and played as only Vince can do. ...

Due to unexpected health issues, unfortunately Ralph Schuckett will be unable to tour with Utopia this spring.

While discussing a replacement keyboardist, it occurred to us that there may be someone out there who already knows the music and vocal parts and would like an opportunity to tour with us. So if you think you could fill those big shoes, we invite you to submit an audio and/or video sample to us.

We are on a very fast track, so the decision will be made this week. Band rehearsals begin in 2 weeks, so you won’t have a lot of time to learn the set. If you still want to try out, send your submissions (mp3s or links) to info@panacea-ent.com.
If audio-only, a photo would be nice but not required.

Good luck!

Been quiet on FB due to vacation in Florida. But while I was gone, Jake did some fantastic drum sessions with Jeff Meloen. Our tracking room is great for drums, and Jake did wonders with the mics and preamps. Plus, Jeff could be the next Kenny Aronoff. We'll have some videos to post yet this week. ... See MoreSee Less
