Grow Music Project Launches 'Session Diaries'
February 6, 2014 at 12:40 PM (PT)
GROW MUSIC PROJECT (GMP), the new launch pad for emerging, independent artists, proudly premiered its first artist, track and associated "GMP -- The Session Diaries" episode today. The original web series chronicles the recording sessions and the musical journey each artist takes as they craft a breakout song with GMP.
The Session Diaries kicks off with NEW YORK CITY pop trio STAR AND THE SEA and the band’s new single, “Captain and the Map." “Captain and the Map” was recorded using both vintage and modern instruments and techniques at STAR HILL STUDIO in SANTA BARBARA, CA.
“‘Captain and the Map’ is one of those artist-defining songs that you can’t get out of your head once you’ve heard it,” GROW MUSIC PROJECT Founder CHRISTOPHER TYNG said. “DOMINIQUE STAR’s alluring voice and unique style of songwriting is so infectious that once fans experience her Session Diaries episode and discover this song, they will undoubtedly add STAR AND THE SEA as a new favorite to their music collection.”
“Being a part of the GROW MUSIC PROJECT was incredible,” DOMINIQUE STAR said. “Getting the chance to fully realize my song in a state-of-the-art studio and breathtaking location is an experience I’ll never forget, and I’m so proud of what we’ve made.”
Throughout 2014, GROW MUSIC PROJECT will roll out monthly tracks and the corresponding GMP -- The Session Diaries episodes for artists such as HOLLY HENRY (contestant on “The Voice”), JOEY HENDRICKSON, ENGELO CHARLES, DIALTONE, JOSHUA MELTZER, CAUTION CAT, INSTANT EMPIRE, JUICE and GHOST TIGER.
