SPARS Nashville based member Welcome to 1979 announces 3rd annual Recording Summit dates

Recording SummitHot off an appearance on the recently successful SPARS Talk session at the 131st AES Convention in NY, Chris Mara and his unique all-analog Welcome to 1979 recording studio in Nashville is hosting its third annual Recording Summit from Friday, November 11 through Sunday, November 13. It will cover topics ranging from the technical side of recording to the creative aspects of engineering and producing, as well as how to determine a rate for your services.

Panels will be informal and conversational to aid in getting to the heart of how they have managed to make a living while making great records.

Friday night’s kick off party will be a “live to 2-track recording session” with a few of Nashville’s top players, including Billy Livsey (Tina Turner), Stuart Mathis (The Wallflowers), and Brad Pemberton (Ryan Adams & The Cardinals). Saturday night will feature a listening party for The Flaming Lips’ Zaireeka.

The summit is strictly limited to 60 attendees and priced at $150 (student discounts are available). Interested attendees can contact Welcome to 1979 owner Chris Mara directly via email at to reserve a spot while there is still time.
