Athens, GA based pianist known as T.S. Woodward debuted a new video earlier this month via Dominar Films – outlining a plan to finally release his long-awaited concept album.  The project originally began production in 2013 before eventually transforming into a double-album with the addition of a live recording titled “In The Black Box” captured during Woodward’s 2015 graduation from the University of Georgia for studies in Popular Music Composition, a major which T.S. created himself after initially being declined entry into the Hugh Hodgson School of Music.

Woodward commented that the album is a “surrealist’s guide to navigating the dark descent into and out of a dream. Everything is complete except the physical release!”

Rewards for donations include everything from a digital version of the LP – all the way up to – T.S. delivering an actual piano to your home, spot tuning included!

Catch T.S. Woodward and his ensemble at this year’s Athfest – Friday June 24th on the Hull St. Stage at 7:15pm!

You can find out more and help contribute to the cause by visiting the official Kickstarter page and sharing the video below :

GF Studio Salutations

GYPSY FARM HALLWAY

While reflecting on the sessions that took place throughout the year (and those booked into December) – we find ourselves overflowing with excitement and much anticipation in seeing those projects unleashed in 2016.

From Bluegrass to Rap to suspenseful film scoring and everything in-between, It’s been a busy year for the rural based recording studio located in North-Eastern Georgia.

“We aim to keep plugged in, warmed up and ready to mix into the new season.” said WJAY, chief engineer.

Thank you to all who visited with GFR in 200015, before and beyond.

For more information on Gypsy Farm’s extremely fair rates for technical audio assistance with multi-track, overdubbing and/or mixing your project in-house or on-location, be sure and check out the studio page or contact us!
