Recording Studio: Sessions with Josh Couvares and Marc Smith at New York Vocal Coaching

Marc Smith and Josh Couvares wanted to check the drum recording capabilities of Marc’s new recording space at New York Vocal Coaching, where they’ve been recording Josh’s new album in Midtown.

Great session, and can’t wait to hear it finished.  Josh’s songwriting choices and playing sound excellent, and Marc’s recording knowledge sculpts, adds, and deepens the songs’ sonic qualities.  Very excited to be a part of these recordings.
