Northridge, CA (January 12, 2011)–Former Nashville-based engineer has selected JBL LSR6300 studio monitors for his Big Sky High studios in Montana.
After a dozen years of producing and engineering in Nashville, Goodwin decided to pursue a dream and create a facility that felt more like a retreat than the impersonal atmosphere of many studios. Big Sky High is a former bed and breakfast located just outside Bozeman, MT that is designed to inspire and replenish the creative spirit.
Over the past several years, Big Sky High has hosted an eclectic variety of talented artists, including the Gin Blossoms, Raul Malo, Stacey Earle, John Jorgenson, Blackhawk and Darrell Scott. Big Sky High also serves as the home base for Big Sky Rockin’ Rendezvous, a workshop series that allows guests to collaborate with established artists to learn about songwriting and record material in Big Sky High’s recording studio while enjoying a variety of recreational activities in the beautiful surroundings of Montana.
Goodwin decided to add JBL’s top-of-the-line LSR6300 loudspeakers to his studio after Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Chuck Ainlay came to Big Sky High for a project and suggested Goodwin give them a listen.
“Once I heard them, I knew I had to have them,” Goodwin said. “Although many producers, artists and engineers have their own personal preferences for studio monitors, I think the JBL LSR6300 finds a sonic common ground that everyone can relate to. They sound clear, detailed, smooth and faithful to the recording – and I find that they can also be made to sound great in any room thanks to their RMC feature and active amplification.”
Additional projects on tap in 2011 for Goodwin and his independent label A-Major/D2 Records include A Time For Everything by Marshall McLean, Johngosolo by John Bohlinger, and a record in progress by Cowboy Troy, formerly of Big & Rich.
