Snew Recording Latest Album With Music Industry Legends
September 6, 2011
Having gained a loyal following for their raw, electrified monster rock and roll, hard rockers Snew recently visited Redondo Beach, California’s Total Access Recording to track songs for their upcoming release, accompanied by producer Bobby Owsinski and engineer Ken Scott.
Owsinski, a pioneer in the art of surround sound music mixing, is a respected author, speaker and music industry advisor whose production credits include projects for Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young and Chicago. Owsinski also produced Snew’s much-praised debut Snew You (2008) and We Do What We Want (2010) — both are available for purchase at www.snewyou.com.
“Bobby is a guru in the music recording industry,” says lead singer Curtis Don Vito. “He’s a master at capturing that raw high energy sound that defines SNEW. We’re really fortunate to have him on this project.”
Ken Scott is a legendary engineer/producer who has recorded many of rock’s seminal albums, including The Beatles’ White Album, David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and Supertramp’s Crime of the Century.
“Ken is truly a wizard when it comes to getting great drums sounds, and any other sound for that matter,” says drummer Mark Ohrenberger. “I’ve never heard my drums sound so amazing in the studio.”
The band recorded four new songs that will appear on their third album. The tracks feature a guest appearance by classic metal bassist and Black Sheep front man Willie Basse.
Snew’s new album is scheduled to be released by the end of this year. Several singles will precede its release.
