FRAMINGHAM, MASS (Mar. 22, 2013) – The Loop Loft, developer of the world’s most musical loop collections, announces that it has completed tracking for The Bunker Sessions, featuring drummer Eric Harland and guitarist Charlie Hunter. Music creators will be able to deploy Harland and Hunter’s masterful musicianship on their tracks using virtually any DAW or music-making software including Pro Tools®, Ableton™ Live, Reason™ and GarageBand®, beginning in late March.
Introducing Hunter/Harland - The Bunker Sessions!
Recorded at the world-class Bunker Studios in Brooklyn, New York under the engineering of Aaron Nevezie, seven-string guitarist Charlie Hunter and jazz drum master Eric Harland bring the inimitable soul and feel of live musicians, playing together at the top of their game, to anyone’s tracks. The duo performed collaborative rhythm-section tracks in a wide range of styles from blues to hip-hop, and funk to Latin.
Multiple Grammy®-nominated drummer Eric Harland is widely considered to be among the leading young drummers worldwide. Charlie Hunter is among the most unique musicians alive, performing rhythm and lead guitar parts as well as bass lines simultaneously. Both Harland and Hunter have enjoyed careers performing and recording with a veritable “who’s who” of jazz, pop, and other contemporary music personalities.
The Loop Loft employed a mix of old-world and cutting-edge recording equipment and technology to capture Harland and Hunter’s performances, including boutique and vintage microphones, compressors and premium converters. Harland played a 1960s Ludwig drum set, a range of classic snare drums and a palette of custom Zildjian cymbals, while Hunter played his seven-string guitar into separate guitar and bass amplifiers for discrete tone. “I felt like I was playing matchmaker, putting Eric and Charlie into a studio and pressing record,” said Ryan Gruss, Founder and CEO, The Loop Loft. “But from the moment they started warming up, I could tell something special was happening. The Bunker Session is going to help lots of people make great music.”
The Bunker Session, featuring Charlie Hunter and Eric Harland, will be available now in late March from http://www.thelooploft.com in all major formats including REX2™, WAV, AIFF, Stylus RMX™ and ReFill™ starting at $49.00 each.
