We're very excited to announce the release of "Half Moon Day" by the Stages of Sleep. Recorded in two weeks at Tamsound and mixed in NYC at Nice One Studio, "Half Moon Day" is the culmination of over a decade of collaboration between Jason Ardiles (song writer, vocalist and guitarist of Stages of Sleep) and Seth Paris (producer, multi instrumentalist, audio engineer and founder of Nice One Audio). This incredible partnership exemplifies the mission of Nice One Audio & Design: to foster the intimately collaborative relationship between the artist and the producer, in order to create something better than each could accomplish on our own.
The first single from the record is called "July" but be sure to dig deeper to hear Nice One Audio's other favorites, like "Nausea" and "Loneosme House.
This amazing record, completed in less than 8 months, would not have been possible without the incredible talents of:
Dustin Silva- guitarist, vocalist, pianist and sensitive painter of sonic landscapes. Without his soaring guitars, beautiful piano playing and invaluable input on arrangements this record would not be the same. You can reach Dustin here.
Max Savage- audio engineer, master of electronic beats and video producer extraordinaire. Max is known for his work with the band Cathedrals and his fantastic Bay Area based video and audio production company Noisy Savage.
RD White- our fantastic mastering engineer from Twin Peaks Studios in Los Angeles, CA.
