[prMac.com] New York, NY - BreakThru Radio is pleased to announce the premier of its new web-TV show, Dubway Days, that documents the creative process of the best musicians and songwriters working today. The show is about the magic that happens when two artists are thrown together in a recording studio to write and record a song in a single day. Filmed in NYC's renowned Dubway Studios, the artists have access to the best recording resources available: vintage instruments, state-of-the-art recording software and hardware, and the best engineers in the business.
Dubway Days provides a rare window into the inner workings of songwriting and recording, showing how a song goes from the first plink on a piano key to the fully orchestrated studio production you hear on the radio. There's no cheating. When the artists arrive in the morning, there is no song, and the pressure is on not only to get a song written and recorded, but to make sure it's a great song.
Viewers first get to watch longtime songwriter and performer Ben Arthur help the artist create the song, building verse, chorus and bridge from the ground up. Then producers Al Houghton and Mike Crehore take over as arrangements and performances are honed and tracks are laid down. Before the day is done, a song is born and everyone gathers around the mixing console to listen for the first time.
This is for real - the challenge is huge, and the results are astonishing and unpredictable. Dubway Days is an unprecedented glimpse behind the curtain, an intimate look at the creative process of the some of the best musicians and songwriters out there.
Dubway Days: Two Artists ... One Day ... One Song.
