Gibson Hill Music is now expanding our facilities to include a recording Studio for Gospel Recording Artists. At Gibson Hill Studios we feature a 32 channel behringer board with 16 track capabilities through two Fostex d-80 digital multi-track (with seven hours of hard drive space), a 15 band behringer EQ which has midi and special effects which will enhance any recording. An Alesis microverb 3 (16 bit digital with 256 processes) A Sony digital CD recorder which will turn out a reusable Master recording for duplication.
So if your group (or if you are a soloist) is getting ready to record, whether it is with soundtracks or you need studio quality musicians, we can put together a project to meet your recording needs. Everything from a three song demo with just one voice and one instrument, to a full featured session with as many musicians (background vocals available also) and instruments as you would possibly need, or if you have your own musicians that is fine too.
Many packages are available and we will help design your recording, distribution, and promotion deal around your special, personal and financial needs. We are currently working with 35 music store outlets and 100 full and part time radio stations whose format features southern, bluegrass, country, and contemporary styles of Gospel Music!
Also we can do your next Video (DVD) project from a short 30 minute to a full length 2 hour program (Fully Digital). We are currently piecing together an array of different props to use. As with the CD projects we can record with Soundtracks (karaoke style) or with your own musicians (or our studio musicians that will work with you on a professional level). e-mail
We are running a starter special 10 songs recorded from your own soundtracks, with 5 hours studio time (including mix down time) which includes your master (if you have cassette tapes (soundtracks) that need to be transferred over onto CD and this is your wish, that will be extra) only $750.00 for 100 CDs and includes artwork with slimline cases (full-size jewel cases are extra).

3) Demo services (getting your songs recorded)
5) Publishing and distribution
6) Song contracts
7) How to avoid the song shark

Some songwriter’s may think their efforts end with writing the song. Or they believe that by signing a record contract, or a publishing contract, they’re home free Waiting for the royalty checks to start rolling in. Unfortunately that’s not the case. Every step along the way to a successful record takes a team effort, and the songwriter needs to be a knowledgeable member of the team. Others know that it is necessary to go on to get their song(s) recorded, published, copy written, listed, distributed, (marketed) promoted, and in the media, through, radio, television, and now over the Internet.
Like all artists, songwriters are vulnerable and sensitive. When they create, and when the creative phase of the work is over, it’s time to do the business end of the music business. Recognizing the need to change gears before entering the business cycle is one of the major ingredients in successful artistic careers. We don’t want to go out there fragile and unprotected and immediately get squashed. For more information on changing gears go to our publishers page. Gibson Hill Music

We didn't have a real big crowd but as my Pastor would say "We had a good crowd" The votes were tallied and counted at our last meeting of the head board may 3rd 2010 and agreed upon as being accurate and true. This years voting process was a vote from our fans, friends and family to vote also, as well as adding new categories and those are Songwriter, Song, and Artist of the year.
