I am feeling the urge to describe to you what goes on here @ the Hipjoint House in more detail.
We are a production/recording studio (Hipjoint Productions) that also has a music publishing side (H-Songs) located in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
We are a happy family of five. Mike James and Troy Samson are the owners/writers. Phil Lehmann is the head engineer and fantastic producer. Lillian Henriques is also an exceptional producer.
In 2006, I began @ Hipjoint as an intern, while continuing to write music, play shows etc. Spring 2008, Phil started teaching me the ropes in Logic. I learned how create all my own demos, and the boys were super cool by giving me a set of keys to the studio, allowing me to come in and work. Spring 2009 I signed to Nettwerk One and H-Songs Publishing, becoming the first writer on roster to H-Songs in history!
The record that we are currently working on is my debut album coming (June 1st 2010)
This is also the first project that ALL of us, have sat down together to focus our talents and efforts to collectively create with a great sounding record.
We are as diverse in age and ethnicity as we are in our strengths and personalities, which is why we make such a great team.
Over the last four weeks, we've come together to write, record, produce music AND to listen to eachothers point of view, express our opinions, walk eachother through our creative processes, and most imprtantly, to support one another.
It's been an incredible learning experience and I just wanted to take a moment to show gratitude towards Hipjoint. I love our family. I love what we do. Thank you for the adventure:)
