Holding On

artist/client: 
Josh Harty

"Josh Harty is a mid-West, singer-songwriter with a keen eye, observant lyrics and a fine, driving guitar-style that pulses with feeling and fire. . .Harty’s fretwork is crisp, zingy and always compelling, catching you unawares almost with hints of traditional country in the mix; Chet seems to hang in the background balance at times, followed by ole Doc Watson before he twists the tail, snapping free with a trace of Knopfler at his best and a clear grip of the very fundamentals of good quality modern country music/ Americana.. . . " 

Recorded, Co-Produced and Mixed at DNA by Mark Whitcomb.

On their second LP recorded and produced by Mark Whitcomb at DNA, we see a stronger focus on shorter, more concise songs and a sonic signature that represents their influences.

Fistful of DOOM says:  This album shreds from beginning to end. Droids Attack hit you with a sonic assault that cuts like a buzzsaw. After all is said and done you'll be left battered and bleeding, but begging for more.

Neon Repairman

artist/client: 
Freedy Johnston

Neon Repairman is Freedy's newest offering, a 10 song gem of an album recorded and finialized late 2014.  Classic Freedy-styled songs come to the forefront in this honest, inspiring and conceptually lucid album.  Presented as decievingly simple yet structurally complex arrangements, the album varies from barebones guitar and voice to lush pop soundscapes that stick in your consciousness and will have you singing the songs upon first listen.  Partially crowdfunded via a very successful pledgemusic.com campaign, the album was self-produced by Freedy; partially engineered and entirely mixed at DNA by Mark Whitcomb.
