Recording a song is magic. It is where a band takes an idea and brings it to life. When a band performs live an incredible moment can be presented, but it is not captured. Whether is is Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven," or a song that is never heard, a recording becomes an Artist's permanent document of their legend. That is why this week we wanted to share to you the naked truth of a rough mix. This week's Rough Mix Monday is the rough draft mix of our song "Smilers of The Night." We wanted to give ya'll purple people a taste of what goes into a song through the studio process, and how a song can truly come alive. Take a listen to "Smilers of the Night - Rough Mix" and compare it to "Smilers of the Night - Radio Edit" and hear for yourself the life that is born in the production process. Please share this and leave us a comment below and let us know what you think!
