Joshua Michael Howard (JMH) worked with Adam Levine on The Voice. Now he’s working with Forge Recording lead engineer Ron DiSilvestro. The first song in this collaboration is entitled Make You Feel Right.
JMH sings and plays guitar on the track. Ron DiSilvestro plays drums and also produced, recorded and mixed the music. The other musicians are Manny Hampton (keys), Josue Santiago (bass), and Josh Nussbaum (guitar).
JMH competed in the sixth season of NBC’s The Voice. He is not the only Voice contestant to call Forge Recording home. Matthew Schuler (Team Christina Season 5), Nadjah Nicole (Team Blake Season 9) and Gina Costanzo (team Blake Season 10) have all produced major projects at Forge Recording.
The Voice contestant Matthew Schuler has been busy working with a production team in The Academy Studio at Forge Recording. Schuler, the first contestant to turn all four chairs in The Voice’s blind auditions, has been recording new material with producers Janice McClain, Lawrence Drinks and Michael Anderson of Vibrato Productions. The tracks are being recorded and mixed by Robbie Simmons and mastered by Forge Recording lead engineer Ron DiSilvestro. The team, pictured here, convened for a listening party in Studio A.
Schuler made waves during Season 5 of The Voice under coach Christina Aguilera. His rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah reached #1 on the iTunes charts and #40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Schuler has a major role in the indie film I’m Not Ashamed, which is based on the inspiring true story of Rachel Joy Scott at Columbine High School, and was released in October 2016 (check out the trailer below).
