About this project

Matthew Kenney is a well educated and talented musician who has studied many styles and genres of music.  Matthew first started on percussion and focussed on drum set after high school in college and has performed in a number of musical settings.  Having a love and respect for the guitar, he started to learn how to play in college. Looking to produce a solo album, Matthew is dedicated to the vein of rock.  Having read many interviews, Matthew has adopted the philosophy of another famous musician...in that he only wants to write music that he would want to listen to.  Matthew has never understood why so many bands can write one song that enlight and excite and incite the desire to buy their albums, to not get the same joy and enlightment out of the rest of the songs on the album.  Matthew has made a dedication to the music listener to write songs that are more in the vein/style with the same drive and energy from the stand point of being a musician.  Realizing that not every person is going to like every song, he is at least trying to put his heart and soul into the song. In order to produce high quality of standard music, it takes professional and highly qualified people to make this happen. Matthew has written the songs and has the ideas for the lead solos and is hiring the best that West Michigan has to offer for talent.  The songs will be recorded in Ionia using studios in Grand Rapids as backups, and using a number of resources to ensure that the songs are top notch.  The albums will be professionally engineered and mastered from start to finish and feature top quailty musicians.  Matthew will be the drummer, rhythm guitarist, and vocalist on the album.  Experienced studio musicians are already in place ready to go as well as the studios and engineers.  Once the master recordings are done, they will be sent out of state for mastering by state of the art professionals in the industry.

Risks and challenges

I have several studios to draw from and engineers to draw from. There should be no troubles when the funding is available. Studio time will be booked in two three consecutive day periods. The list of studio musicians is long and extensive. The lead guitarists are the best in the state and are dedicated. The engineers chosen are the best in the state and dedicated. The mastering is the process that will take time. The album will have to carefully and dutifully mastered. Mastering will be done out of state. Pressing will only take place once Matthew gives his own approval on the works. Anything less than absolute perfection will not be accepted.
