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.

Kristin will be performing at the Cultural Center in Havre de Grace, MD on December 17 with the Melting Pot Big Band.  She will also be performing at Woodmere Art Museum, 9201 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, on March 16, 2018 for Women’s History Month.


I had a great experience with Forge Recording! Everyone was easy to work with and I received my final takes so quickly.

Forge Recording’s Live Events Team hit the road to record four classical pieces performed by The Bucks County Wind Ensemble. Our client, Northeastern Music Publications, is a publisher of sheet music for bands and orchestras. Forge Recording provides a multi-track recording and mixing of the musical arrangements.

On the Steppes of Central Asia

Northeastern’s most recent offerings include On the Steppes of Central Asia by Alexander Borodin, Fantasie on the traditional Chinese folk song A Beaded Purse, Golden Age by Yu Jianfang, and Swarm Theory by Gary Fagan. The works were arranged by Dr. Randy Navarre who will be traveling to China to perform some of the pieces with local middle school students.

Audio Engineer Brendan McGeehan recorded the ensemble on location, while Forge Recording Lead Engineer Ron DiSilvestro mixed and mastered the recordings in Studio A.

westminster-live-shot-for-web-01

December marks an annual tradition at Forge Recording–the Westminster Presbyterian Church Christmas concert recording.

Since 2008, Forge Recording’s staff has recorded West Chester’s Westminster Presbyterian Church Choir‘s annual “Christmas Joy” concerts on location. This year, the 120+ piece choir celebrated its 25th annual Christmas Joy season and sold out five shows for thousands of visitors.

Forge Recording’s Brendan McGeehan was there to record two of the performances. McGeehan recorded 28 tracks that lead engineer Ron DiSilvestro mixed and mastered in Forge Recording’s Studio A the following day. Within 5 days of the concert, Forge’s team produced 600 market-ready CDs in shrinkwrap for the church to share.

Westminster Presbyterian Church is one of many church choirs who have visited our studios and/or engaged us to record them on location. Learn more here about how we can help you record your organization’s live concert.
