wood some music help your soul?
I know i say it a lot, but time flies. For starters, hello 2018, maybe more than a few months late. New this year, there is another engineer working out of another studio room in our warehouse space, expanding our wonderful music community and giving us a little extra insight. We had Portland acoustic duo Koala-T come in to record a demo, which proved to be a great time with some amazing results. C503PO wrapped vocals for their upcoming trip hop release, which i am personally really excited about. Raquel stopped by to record some more vocals , fire has become her standard and its such a pleasure to get to be around her as she performs t this level. Check out a new podcast coming from the studio called the Songwriters Realm. It focuses on songwriting and includes live performances from the artist. So much more I'm sure i'm forgetting, its been such a whirlwind, so much has happened and continues to happen. More ribbons, more tubes, more music, things are good.

Wood you believe the time...?
Well that was crazy. 2017 Seems to have flown by, only around 30 something days until a new year is upon us. Here at the realm, we have been on a wild ride. We are getting super close to finishing the Dear Vultures record, Raquel Divar has been back a few times with some new material to add to her already amazing catalog, most recently with producer Noer the Boy. Scott and Keefe did some collaborating with Deafmind, as well as put a little work into some of their own C503PO music. The winter months are upon us, which is the best time to get carried away on some studio projects. We have all kinds of wonderful things on the books, and still plenty of space to welcome some new projects, so even though its gloomy outside, we are bright with ideas in here. Not all peachy news however, this past summer we lost our friend Xris, who found this lovely space we work out of and invited us in to create the Studio of the Woodland Realm. Even though he's gone, his presence is still Ivery much felt around here. We hope you are all having a great holiday so far, keep an eye out for some of the amazing music thats going to be coming your way from the studio in the coming months.

Where wood you rather be?
What a Crazy few months! As the snow settled and the rain started endlessly coming down, we have been busy here in the realm. Raquel came in to lay down some incredible vocals, and did a collaboration with Firekat. Shortway came by to record some guitars, Joe Jacobson started a few new songs to add to his debut album. Our friend Art from Deafmind has been in producing some new music this month too. We will also be sponsoring a happy hour party at Cravedog in portland Thursday, February 23, for any of you in the portland area that like drinks and snacks and would like to chat with us a bit in person. We are very happy to have started this year so productively, and are very excited for some of the projects on the horizon this year.

Celebrate the Snow Year
A New Year, some crazy Portland weather, things keep on moving along at the Realm. Perhaps its political frustration, or just going crazy from the snowy weather, but artists keep coming by with some of the best material we have heard in a long time. After what was an excellent year for us, we would like to thank everyone who came to record with us, and look forward to making so much more music!

Remember Woodland September
Summer seems to come and go so fast. We have been extremly busy, both in the studio, and working some of the Northwests best music festivals. Pretty sure there is nothing not to love about getting paid to see WEEN. In the studio, Joe Jacobson continues to make headway on his album, Raquel Divar's been laying down some wonderful vocals, C503PO has so much music in the works, and we have had the pleasure of seeing some new faces in the Realm. Scott Stanley joined Steve Knight over at the Boys and Girls Club to teach the kids a little about recording and recorded some vocals for some new Flipsyde material. After a chaotic and fun summer, we are very much looking forward to a nice rainy season, sitting in the Realm and making new music.

Realm in the Summer
Well, summer keeps on blazing on. As we continue work on Joe Jacobsons record, plenty of great musicians, including the rainbow girls, keep dropping by to perform on the album. Midnights Children came by for a few days to play some incredible, funky songs. Steve Knight layed down vocals for what is probably going to be Flipsydes new single, and I must say, this track is hot! Theres been so much going on, and so much yet to come. Festival season is in full swing and we will be mixing and master tons of live sets in the weeks to come.

Wooden, it be nice
Springtime, busy as usual. This month Joe Jacobson started work on a new album, Eric from Patchy Sanders came in to play some Bass. Steve knight came in with Vandfald to tickle the keys of our 100 year old piano and sing some tunes. Theres some new lights to help pretty things up a bit and help set the vibe. C503PO dropped a new track too. We really like sexy sounding mic pres, so we aquired some more of those, and all in all, have been enjoying creating all this wonderful music with all the folks who swing by the Woodland Realm.

Spring in the Realm
Hello again. This month has been full of inspiring music here in the Woodland Realm. We filmed another handful of Bare in the Woods, Deafmind came in and sang for us, Keefe snuck onto their new single. Raquel Divar crushed another half dozen songs, Device Grips has been coming by the studio to work out new music, Tyler even jumped in on a random C503PO song that has been brewing on the studio computer, and Stephen Knight dropped in with Alex Ries and some friends to rock out some guitars and vocals for their new tunes. In the meantime, we are slowly updating things here, poke around our music section to hear some of the music coming out of the Woodland Realm and check out Instagram for some more pictures from the studio.

Tale from a Woodland Realm
Back in 2014, when the Studio of the Woodland Realm was just an idea, Scott was working some shows with Local Portland group Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts (http://www.johnnylimbo.com). At the time, the groups driver, Dominic, was in the process of replacing the old cedar siding on his house. We had recently aquired the space to build the studio and asked if we could use the siding for acoustic treatment. Shortly after, we had an enormous pile of cedar, sitting in Keefes yard, covered with snow and ice. After several, extremely time consuming months, and with a good amount of help from our friends Device Grips (http://www.device-grips.com), we cleaned, sanded, cut, and reused almost every piece of that cedar to build all the custom acoustic treatment in the studio.
