At Live Oak Studio, a premier Bay Area recording studio in Berkeley, we have a minimum four-hour booking time, so we want our clients get the most out of their sessions. Our chief engineer, James Ward, has a few guidelines.
Live Oak is a full-service recording and mixing facility serving the music, film, spoken word and game community. There is no substitute for professional acoustics, top of the line equipment — and years of experience! Our lead engineer James Ward receives accolades from the many recording artists who have benefitted from his expertise.
One of our favorite artists, Renee Asteria, has a new release called,”Razteria”, which is really some fun and exciting music :
“RAZTERIA – Renee Asteria’s 3rd release: “Latin roots, reggae riddims, activist intent and strong female vocals coalesce on Renee Asteria’s rockin’ new release RazteRia (Asteria Records). ” The result is soulful, rock-solid and recommended.” (Chuck Foster, Reggae Central, KPFK FM, Los Angeles). Renee Asteria’s act consists of a 6-piece band, fronted by strong female vocals (Renee Asteria and Mbutshu Yindja), in English and Spanish. Her Latin-Reggae style’s upbeat, positive energy get people feeling good, dancing – and her tunes raise awareness about different societal issues.”
On January 16, Bay Area artists and community will gather to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Bay Area radio personality Leslie Stoval will emcee this 9th annual musical tribute: In the Name of Love, produced by Rhythmic Concepts, Inc., with the generous support of Target Corporation.
