I have been involved in music since I was 9 years old and this is the third studio that I have operated. Sue has been very supportive, and helpful in the whole operation.

 

 
Joel Key

The New River Band

Joel Key currently travels full time with Karen Peck, and the New River Band. Joel is one of the smoothest lead guitar pickers I've heard. He also plays acoustic guitar, mandolin and fiddle. Joel usually is appointed lead producer when he's in a session, as he is very artistic in arrangements and chart writing. I am glad to have Joel on our staff band.

Dale Scragg

Dale Scragg is a full time musician. He has been playing drums since age 11 and playing on recording sessions since 1990. One of the finest drummers I have had the privilege of knowing, and working with. He can adapt to any style of playing.
