Band Together: Volume VI

Each year, our current SpokesBUZZ bands contributed a song to an annual compilation album, spending time with industry experts in a local recording studio as part of our artist incubator program, then performing at an album release party where we share the music with our community.

With SpokesBUZZ: Band Together – Volume VI, we introduced some creative constraints: each band recorded their track live, in a one-hour session at The Blasting Room Studios in Fort Collins, under the guidance of Andrew Berlin, one of the finest producers (and people) in the world.

Here’s a blog post about making the album
