CRS Newsletter 2007


CRS has had a busy few months. Lots of exciting projects past, current and upcoming. 

Most notable is The Police !!!
CRS supplied rehearsal location services in Vancouver for the band in January/February.   We will also be arranging and supporting their upcoming rehearsals in Vancouver before their North American tour kicks off in the spring. 

Mix engineer Mike Fraser has been venturing into some other styles of music this past year. 
In April, "Dirty Girl", the first single from Terri Clark's upcoming Sony/BMG release will hit the airwaves. 
Mike mixed the single and is finishing mixing the upcoming album.
The album is being produced by legendary country producer Garth Fundis. 

Dave "Rave" Ogilvie mixed two tracks for GOB recently.
Rave is also currently mixing Australian surf/roots artist Xavier Rudd's latest CD. Rudd's upcoming CD will be released on Universal in Canada and Australia, and Anti for the rest of the globe. Rave and Xavier produced the album together, and Dean Maher engineered it. Dave is just back from Australia where he went to the Outback to record some Aboriginal voices for the CD.
Rudd is set to play Bonnaroo in June 07. Last time he played this prestigious festival, his CD sales broke festival records. 
Xav is opening for The Dave Matthews Band on the Australian leg of their tour. 

Other projects include;  The Mars Volta in Montreal,   
Rihanna, Hilary Duff and  Englebert Humperdinck in Toronto, Snoop Dog in Australia and Biffy Clyro in London. 

Through CRS, Mike Fraser recently mixed an artist from Halifax, Nova Scotia by the name of Nathan Wiley
Quite a buzz about this talented singer/songwriter!
Steve Berlin was at the production helm and came to Vancouver to oversee the mixes.  

CRS currently has a band called Travega from Ireland working in Vancouver with producer Gggarth Richardson.
Garth will take a quick break and head to London, England with Mike Fraser for some tracking and overdubs for UK darlings Biffy Clyro. Biffy's  CD was recorded in Vancouver with Gggarth and Mike.
