A captivating blend of rock and dance pop music, Oak & Ash is Rich Tuorto (vocals, guitarist, keyboardist), Chris Tuorto (guitarist) , Paul Gramigna (bassist), and Bryan Garbe (drummer). The band got its start in New York City in 2014 when the Tuorto cousins, and long time friend, Paul, decided to join forces and they haven't looked back since.

What a cool series! Really interesting to see the process from start to finish. Excellent detail and explanations. I think I'd like to have a pint with Jacquire.

So funny, lol I use HEAT and it's great, but it's literally off when the knobs are centered.

Wow! So glad they left the Buzz segment in at first it was really annoying. but very cool to see how Jacquire responded. he was obviously annoyed by the persistent problem but pro active in striving toward a solution and reassuring to the band. Great Video!

Quite surprised by the amount of EQ they are using at the recording stage. Fix in the mix doesn't seems to be the rule here but who cares ?

Thumbs up to Rich! I know how hard this can be for a vocalist and I really appreciate that you made it on camera and shared it with us! Thank you 1000 times for that!
P.S. The whole series is great and the song is F.I.R.E.!

That engineer took wayyy too much time on the kick mic before even listening to the rest of the kit.

Would the issue of Nudging be fixed by using DSP in the channel when automating?
