MixLine Feature: The Village Gets a Does of ATL


Trevor Hall and John Mayer in Studio A

The Village got an extra dose of southern charm when an Atlanta-based R&B production team and one chart-topping former Atlanta resident both their way to the L.A. studio recently. Atlanta native John Mayer stopped in to cut new tracks with producers John Alagia and Steve Jordan and engineer Joe Ferla. Alagia then moved on to produce songs for emerging singer/songwriter Trevor Hall with engineer Brian Scheuble.

Meanwhile, Atlanta-based production team Alvin and Calvin Waters (Patti Labelle, Teena Marie, Michael Jackson, TLC, Robbie Williams, Janet Jackson, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs) stopped in Studio B to track the new Backstreet Boys song “Over Her” with co-producer James Terry for a European release. Pablo Munguia manned the SSL and ProTools.

More A-list clients streamed in during the late summer, including none other than the Rolling Stones, in recording a new song with producers Don Was and Dave Sardy and engineer Ryan Castle. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis brought in Janet Jackson and Jessica Simpson, while T-Bone Burnett locked out Studio D to work on a Beatles project for Revolution Pictures.
