~FEATURED PROJECT ~
From Nashville to LA to India via Palette’s Virtual Studio Nashville (VSN)
Two years in the making, Aeone delivers a powerful yet, inspiring body of work in her 6th studio album including the title track video release of – Love Is The Healer. Jeff Silverman and Aeone produced and arranged the album. Jeff also mixed, mastered and engineered the project and co-wrote on a number of tracks from Palette Music Studio Productions (MSP) while connecting with Aeone via Palette’s Virtual Studio Nashville (VSN) in Nashville, TN. Aeone recorded from The Chateau, her studio in Los Angeles, CA.
Love Is The Healer was created by me and longtime collaborator, veteran producer and songwriter Jeff Silverman, 2000 miles apart in Los Angeles, CA and Nashville, TN. During the entire creative process, including recording, mixing and mastering, Jeff and I used Palette’s VSN virtual studio set up (Virtual Studio Nashville) to communicate. Files were sent back and forth via the internet until the mix/ mastering stage. This process was a continual “passing of the torch.” For the creative process, files were constantly being traded off to each other as we were working on the arrangements. When it came to the mix, Jeff would take the torch and paint his picture. Then send it off to me to listen and comment. Then we both would hook up via VSN, streaming audio directly out of Jeff’s Pro Tools session, screen sharing and talking on the phone while making our final mix /mastering tweaks.
In addition, files were transferred to India and back while collaborating with Ricky Kej, 2015 Grammy Award winner for Best New Age Album.
I am so proud of the work we have done together, each song feels seamless – where one person’s ideas end and the other’s begin. It was not only a great collaboration, but also a tribute to Jeff and his unique ability to tune into where I wanted to go as an artist and expand on that, rather than change it for the sake of making his mark. That being said, his imprint and input are absolutely apparent throughout the album.
