Blue Room Recording now open in county
In May 22 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Russell County News Editor

Local musician Dave Williams, a certified audio engineer, has opened the Blue Room Recording studio in Royville in hopes of attracting some of the area’s talented musicians.

The recording studio, which has been open less than a month, is set up for rock, country, gospel, Bluegrass and R & B musicians, he said.

“There is a lot of local talent in this community,” Williams said. “I’ve played music in different groups and I’ve played a lot of different instruments with people and people in Russell Springs, Jamestown and Columbia has a lot of talent.”

He said many high school musicians may have the talent but not the funding to record their music. He hopes to make reasonable offers to those types of musicians.

“I just want people to have something to represent their talent,” he said. “There is a lot of unrepresented talent.”

“We do demo CD’s or full-length albums for people,” Williams said. “Just basically audio editing and recording.”

Pricing depends on what the artist wants, he said. “If it is a full band, obviously the rates are going to be a bit higher.”

Musicians can also bring in their own equipment and instruments or use Williams’ industry standard equipment.

“I have name-brand, dependable stuff that sounds pretty good,” Williams said. Some of the recognizable names you’ll see in the studio include: Pearl, Fender and Marshall.

“This is Nashville-style equipment,” he said.

His audio equipment includes a Mac computer with the latest version of Pro Tools, a superior audio engineering program.

“If you want a vintage sound, I can do that, or if you want a current sound with more volume and body I can do that as well,” he said.

Musicians will record in Williams’ blue room, a color that he hopes help sooth the nerves of the artists as they record.

“It is kind of a melo feel and vibe, just a laid-back atmosphere,” he said. “I want it to be inspirational because a lot of people find the color blue inspirational as far as artists go.”

He said he first got into music production around 10 years ago, when he was 19 years old, but has been a fan of music since he was a child. Williams, who went on to get his audio engineering certificate, will graduate next month from the prestigious Lexington Recording School for the Arts.

“It is a hands-on school,” he said. “Artists come in and get hands-on experience working with jazz, rock, country and blues groups, you name it.”

“I started hanging out in recording studios when I was 16 and first started to learn how to play,” he said. “I just want to let people know I’m out there,” Williams said.

Williams’ wife, Lindsay, is also very supportive of this new endeavor, he said. The couple is expecting their first child in July.
