“I was a pig in sh*t.”
— Dave Ramont (solo artist, Dick Smith and Made in Aurora)Country, roots and acoustic music. Don’t think they have any influence in Chicago? You’ve probably never heard Wilco or Ryan Adams – or the artists of Made in Aurora.
Created to showcase the wealth of talented roots and acoustic music in the area west of Chicago, Made in Aurora: Volume One brought more than 30 musicians into the recording studio in a period of 3 days. From Americana and bluegrass to country and southern rock, we covered the spectrum of roots music – and delivered polished mixes to the vinyl pressing plant just weeks later. Listeners can’t stop talking about the music. But the musicians can’t stop talking about Backthird Audio.
Acoustic artists have been recording here since the studio opened. Some are lured by the studio’s grand piano – others like the spacious live room that flatters acoustic instruments and leaves plenty of space for the whole ensemble. Does your bluegrass quintet prefer to record live, all together in the same space? Maybe this is that space.
Acoustic acts planning a new recording project of any size should meet with us for a studio tour. We’ll discuss your preferred approach and propose a budget and timeline to suit your style. For an appointment, call 630-264-2366 – or contact us online.
