MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – A new recording studio was officially dedicated in Mobile Thursday, February 27.
Students at the University of Mobile can now learn how to record and produce music with state of the art technology.
It’s courtesy of the new Fisher-Brewer Recording Studios.
University of Mobile President Dr. Mark Foley said, “We wanted a place where our students could not only learn how to use the technology, but where they could write, record, produce, and distribute their music to their generation.”
The studio goes hand and hand with the university’s Christian record label, 880 Records.
The executive Director of 880 Records, Jason Breland, said, “We have ensembles that travel, song writers that write, and this studio is now an opportunity to teach technology, but, also, to capture the creative opportunities for all these students.”
“ABOUT AS NICE AS YOU’LL FIND”
Jordan Pinkston and Shannon Powers make up the singing duo “River.”
Jordan is a recent graduate and Shannon, a student.
Powers said, “We’re really excited to have this facility available to us.”
Pinkston said, “This is just about as nice as you’ll find. It’s so great to be a part of something like this.”
Cooper Bascom is a sophomore who majors in guitar and jazz.
He hopes to become a recording artist, and believes this studio will help him.
When asked what he thought about available career activities, Bascom said, “They’re endless. You’ve got studios like this one all over the country. People are looking for musicians.”
The University of Mobile said you can find some good ones, here.
The studio was made possible by Joyce Fisher and the Reverend Curtis Brewer of Odessa, Texas.
