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.ย  Josh’s songwriting choices and playing sound excellent, and Marc’s recording knowledge sculpts, adds, and deepens the songs’ sonic qualities.ย  Very excited to be a part of these recordings.

Musical Reunion! Performing with Matt Dallow at No Pants Subway Ride 2018

Thanks to everyone who bravely dropped their pants for the #NoPantsSubwayRide2018!

Sunnyside Social Club played in the Union Square platform as pants-less dancers boogied to the music.ย  We then marched the party upstairs and out to the street to the afterparty atย Bar 13 as the trumpet valves and the accordion player’s fingers began to freeze!

I am especially excited to have had the opportunity to perform with Matt Dallow, accordion-man/multi-instrumentalist, songwriter/performer, entertainer.ย  I met Matt about 15 years ago near our hometowns on Long Island.ย  Matt’s band “Space Robot Scientists” performed regularly at what was called “Saints and Sinners“, where I had my first few DJ gigs spinning underground house and hip-hop on vinyl and CDs, making barely enough money to drink for the night.ย  The memories immediately conjure visions of theremins, strange art exhibits, Jameson, and DJing indoors with a cigarette in NY.

Fast-forward to present day- Matt and I have recently found our paths crossing as performers at Club Cumming, where he has a weekly residency performing Monday evenings.ย  He has also connected me with contacts via Facebook posts looking for musicians to cover gigs, which led to me working with Zachary Clause.ย  I’ve also enjoyed playing in recent gigs in vintage trains and subway platforms with Matt’s band, Sunnyside Social Club.ย ย 

It is inspiring for me to see life’s paths cross this way, and gives me an unexpected opportunity to thank Matt as a respected peer and artist, and to acknowledge the longtime efforts of a couple of simultaneously occurring weirdos from Long Island.ย  Cheers, old friend!ย  Getting to perform together and being a fan of your journey reminds me how important it is to me that we are out here navigating this world with our instruments.ย  Here’s to being a couple of weirdos in Brooklyn, fighting and surviving each day to entertain NYC and beyond.ย  And thank you to everyone along our paths, for shaping, fueling, and supporting this weirdness.ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Go check out Matt Dallow Musicย and be sure to tip the accordion man when ya see him!
