Kristin Callahan’s voice has been described as fresh, vibrant, hypnotic and mesmerizing. To capture her unique style, Kristin chose Forge Recording’s Studio A as a backdrop and guitarist Josh Nussbaum as accompanist for four videos. The songs were recorded and mixed by Forge Recording Lead Engineer Ron DiSilvestro.
Kristin is a Baltimore native who has been performing jazz since 2009. She is currently working on two projects. The first is Songs of Peggy, a program consisting of songs Peggy Lee recorded throughout her career and original songs by Lee. The second is Sway with Me, a program of Latin jazz tunes, and highlights songs written by Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Baltimore art rock band Vinny Vegas chose Forge Recording as the location to film 5 songs for its new EP. The series of videos was engineered by Steven Rosplock and filmed by Jay Yachetta and Benjamin Neate in Studio A.
“Greens Into Blues” is the first video released off the EP. According to Rosplock, all 5 songs were recorded in one take with no audio edits. “I think that’s amazing and a testament to how killer those guys are. It really makes the songs feel like they are living in the moment.”
Emerging from Baltimore’s burgeoning art rock community, Vinny Vegas proves that a musical act can thrive without abandoning the DIY aesthetic. The five-piece band has self-released three critically acclaimed EPs and one full-length LP, and has self-booked/funded many tours throughout the U.S. and Canada over its ten+ year existence. From extensive touring it has gained a cult following for its dynamic live shows. Vinny Vegas consists of Scott Siskind (lead singer), Jason Cohen (drums), Aaron White (bass), Emmanuel Lee (keyboards) and Earl Carter (guitar and vocals).
