We know that being a record producer may not be everyone’s fantasy. However, if you’ve ever thought that you’d like to be a part of the creative process and help a VERY deserving artist, who isn’t backed by one of the big bucks major lables, further her career, you might find this interesting.
If you’ve been with us for a while, you know that we are huge fans of Katie Quick. Katie is a former Chicago school teacher who, several years ago, left the teaching world and decided to follow her music muse. When, thanks to one of our engineers, Adam Phillips, we became aware of Katie, we were very impressed with her talent and contacted her, which resulted in several terrific in-studio performances and, more importantly to us, a new friendship with a pretty special person.
Over the years we’ve known Katie, we’ve been impressed, not just with her talent as a singer/songwriter but, additionally, with her incredible work ethic. In fact, if you look up “self-starter” in the dictionary, you’ll probably find a picture of Katie. Some of you may have seen Katie’s recent appearance on the Katie Couric show where, along with performing, she talked about her Fingertips Program.
Katie’s latest “self-starter” project is the production of her next album and, being an independent artist, she’s using the Kickstarter on line funding platform to finance the record AND bring her Fingertips Program to schools in need.
As we’ve come to know, Katie is the kind of person who doesn’t take “no” for an answer. That’s one of the many things we like about her. If you’d like to join us in helping Katie make her next record a reality and show students around the country that their dreams can come true just click on this link.
We don’t often make this kind of “pitch,” but we really think that Katie Quick, her music and the students she’s trying to help are worth it.
We hope you will too.
