SIRIUS satellite radio service has formed WAGS Recordings (Working Artist Group at SIRIUS), a program designed to gather unsigned artists and expose them to listeners worldwide.
SIRIUS will record and produce these artists in its state-of-the-art recording studios and in-house producers. Certain songs will go into rotation, as well as be made available via www.Sirius.com.
“The biggest hurdles for an artist today are studio time and getting airplay,” commented Teddy Zambetti, an in-house composer/producer and architect of the program. “Now, with our WAGS program, SIRIUS can provide both.”
Each of the three performing spaces is equipped with a Mackie D8B; Mackie HDR-24/96 and MDR-24/96 hard disk recorders; Tascam DA-98/DA-78 digital multitrack recorders; Pro Tools 24 MIXPlus system; Genelec monitoring; microphones from Neumann, AKG, Sennheiser, Shure, Schoeps and Coles; and a full complement of outboard gear and musical instruments.
