OCL at the CCMAs

We had an incredible time at the Canadian Country Music Association Awards in London this past weekend.

Thank you to the Canadian Country Music Association for hosting such a great Industry Lunch and Award Show. This is our second year at the CCMAs, and our second consecutive nomination for Recording Studio of the Year. It is such an honour to be nominated. Thank you again to everyone who voted for us. Your support means more than we could say. We are very happy to congratulate Barrytone Studios on winning Studio of the Year for the second year in a row!

While we're out here, people keep asking us what we've been up to. Josh said it best yesterday when he said that we've been up to a little bit of everything. As much as we love projects where we work with the same band for extended periods of time and complete a whole album, we also love projects where we only do the beds, or the vocals, or mix.

There is so much talent in Alberta, and in Canada, that as happy as it makes us to work as a team within the walls of our own studio, we are equally grateful for opportunities to collaborate with others and be a small part of a much larger project.

We had way too much fun celebrating with the Canadian Country Music family.

We went down to London Music Hall for the Opening reception, the Invictus Entertainment Group party, the MDM Recordings party, and the -ole- party. We travelled a bit further from downtown to celebrate Alberta music with the Somewhere In Alberta Showcase, and had the opportunity to celebrate with our friends at Royalty Records Inc.

We also caught so many excellent showcases right in the lobby of the Delta. Congratulations to everyone who showcased! As much fun as we had, we're happy to home and back behind the console. Can't wait until next year!
