Zach Sanders

Earlier this year we spent a week with Atlanta artist Zach Sanders recording his debut EP "Losin' It."

There are 5 tracks on the EP that range from energetic rockers, to stripped down ballads. Zach was joined by a killer group of session players including Grayson McGrath (drums), Landon Jordan (guitar), and Sam Bedingfield (bass). You can stream the title track here and find the EP in its entirety on iTunes, Spotify, and Google Play.

Songs For Your Television

Sometimes when we're bored we record random songs and pitch them for television placements. My buddy Cody Marlowe and I compiled a few of these tracks into an EP entitled Songs For Your Television; which we have released on Spotify, iTunes and anywhere else you stream music online...

The online version includes 4 songs and the coolest artwork you've ever seen, featuring my super slick vintage television that we use as an end table here at The Vault. We have also released a physical CD version that includes two bonus tracks. You can pick one up at a Cody Marlowe show, or you may be able to order one online if you contact him and harass him long enough.
So far we have been featured on a few terrible shows on TLC and The Science Channel. Keep your ears peeled and let us know if you hear us blaring from a television near you!

Cheers.

BJ Wilbanks - Moonshine On The Vine

A few months back I had the pleasure of doing a stripped down, mega chill EP with BJ Wilbanks. After a lot of coffee, a few beers, and some pretty trippy conversations about planets and aliens and stuff, we wrapped up a 6 song EP entitled Moonshine On The Vine. Its out today on iTunes, Spotify and wherever else you find music online...

We recorded mostly live, without many overdubs... Raw and real like the man himself. Check him out at the album release November 4th at Steve's Live Music, Sandy Springs Ga.

Kalyn Bradford

We had a lot of fun making some rock n roll/country tunes with Kalyn Bradford. Check out Last Drop of Whiskey from her debut EP, Louder Than Thunder.

Featuring Rick Richards (The Georgia Satellites) on guitar, Mike Daly (Hank Williams Jr) on slide guitar, Joey Huffman (Hank Williams Jr) on keys and guitar, Ryan Sellors on bass, Zach Wheeler on drums, and me rocking the guiro fish at the end.

Louder Than Thunder is available now on iTunes, Spotify.

Aaron Gibson - Live From The Vault

Aaron was recommended to us by a friend. He's the real deal. He came in and played through a few songs and really made it look easy. He even pulled his own little in studio audience for the second edition of our live recording series - Live From The Vault.

If you like what you hear please share to support songwriters and promote artists who can do their thing without relying on the digital editing and fixing of today's music world.

Aaron lives in Decatur, Ga and performs in the area frequently. He can also be found roaming various bars and venues in Atlanta and around the southeast. He is currently working on his first full length record, due out this November. You can catch him October 4th at Little Vinyl Lounge, underneath Star Bar in Little Five.

Funk Up Your Television

Joey Huffman and I were asked to do a funk track for a TV series. It was a lot of fun so we did a few extras and compiled it into an EP which we have entitled Funk Up Your Television. There are some cool sounds on it; vintage synths, clavinet, guitars through a Leslie cabinet, a Rhodes through a Wah pedal... The first track is posted below with the rest of the EP available on iTunes and Spotify... Check it out!

Live from the vault... Cody Marlowe

In an age of digital editing, pitch correction, and endless production possibilities, its refreshing to hear a raw performance of a song. Here at the vault we believe that great music always boils down to an individual, or a group of individuals, who have developed a craft; artist's with the ability to create an experience... to portray a feeling that people want, using only their voices and instruments.

We have decided to kick off a new thing. Periodically, (once a month?... whenever we feel like it?) we will invite one of our favorite songwriters to the vault for a stripped down live-performance recording session. All we will give them are a couple of microphones, a couple of beers, and an opportunity to share a few songs. It will mostly be individuals, maybe duos, we'll see. The recordings will be "as is;" no editing, no fixing, correcting, or overdubbing; screw ups and forgotten lyrics included. The recordings will be shared free for anyone who enjoys a genuine performance.

Our hope is that this will allow us the opportunity to expose some of the raw talent that is out roaming around bars, venues, arenas, coffee shops, wherever... and that it will help to inspire artists to become the next great American Songwriter, instead of another American Idol.

To kick it off, we've invited our good friend and session writer for the studio, Cody Marlowe. We are currently working on pre-production for his new record... Here are a few extra songs he had laying around. Enjoy; and if you're into it, please pass it along...

Bonus track "Oak Tree" available at codymarlowe.com

Catch Cody live at Eddie's Attic on July 3rd.
