Local recording studio Charleston Sound has been busy recording and compiling all year, and they're ready to release an impressive 11-song collection titled Charleston Sound Presents: I Got Music. Owner and main recording engineer Jeff Hodges conducted the tracking sessions at the top-of-the-line facility in north Mt. Pleasant.
An album release event set for Sun. Aug. 30 at the Windjammer features live sets from Ryan Bailey, Mac Leaphart, Part-Time Heroes, Skye Paige & the Original Recipe, The Plainfield Project — all of whom recorded a song with Hodges and the studio staff over the spring and summer.
Charleston Sound was also featured on the cover of the July issue of nationally-distributed Mix magazine. "Since settling into his new digs, Hodges — who also owns a record label, 10t Records — has reached out to the local music community by sponsoring a CD comprising local rock, pop, and blues artists," wrote Barbara Schultz.
Additional bands on the comp include the Graham Whorley Band, Part-Time Heroes, Firework Show, Milhouse, Gaslight Street, Jamie Resch & The Kentucky Shoes. Presented in part by 105.5 The Bridge, the live music starts at 6 p.m. See charlestonsound.com for more.
