I'm a singer / songwriter who was trying to find a local producer to work with. (I'd tried working with a producer in NYC once before, but got cut out of a lot of the creative process and wanted someone local I could exchange ideas with). I had some things in mind about style and structure, but don't have formal musical training and don't play any instruments well. Before meeting, Peter & I had a phone call to talk about what I had in mind. Thereafter, we had a productive email exchange trying to hone in on genre for my project. (Sometimes he wouldn't get a chance to respond for a while, but that didn't bother me since I'm not on a strict timetable). I was pumped for our first session together! Over the course of eight hours in his studio, we took a melody and genre idea into a solid production (it still needs some tweaking) and sketched out an idea for another song. Peter was patient with my lack of technical understanding and questions, and I was patient with his process of reverse engineering chord progressions from my melodies. He's an excellent pianist! If I was an accomplished musician and had brought more ideas about musical structure/chord progressions going in, we probably could have gotten even more accomplished in that time. I'm very happy with what we've done together so far, and have scheduled my next session! He gets busy, so plan accordingly!

    I can't say enough good things about Ian Walsh! My daughter has been a student of his for about 5 yrs.She new nothing about piano when she started.It didn't take long before he had her playing at her first recital!We couldn't believe how much she learned! He has taught her so much!She got along great with him,it's very easy to.He is not only an awesome teacher who really takes the time to work with you. He's just a great guy!I truly believe he is a big part of her success as a musician! She got into Berklee and UML! He helped her with much more then just piano!Her songwriting,recording,preparing for gigs,with her band!So if you are looking for someone to help you with your music, piano, look no further!

    I'm a singer/songwriter, pianist, and voice actor. Every time I work with Studio Nine, I'm completely happy with the results. The engineers there go the extra mile to make your project the best it can be. They also have all the latest equipment and gear to produce any result you envision. I highly recommend Studio Nine and will be booking sessions there in the future. DC

    Peter is a rare talent in that he is prolific in the songs that he can write, but also in how he soulfully renders them. His songs make you feel good just listening to them. He's a great guitarist and songwriter!

    Ashwin is an incredible guitarist, Songwriter, singer etc. I have worked with a lot of guitarists, but what makes ashwin stand out is that he plays it according to the genre and experiments with adding more color to the music. He always bring something interesting to the table with his guitar skills. He has tracked guitar for all my songs and every song is different, and he knows exactly what works - it's never too much or too little, it's the right balance of solos and guitar lines. Technique is important, but when ashwin works on a song, he uses his instincts and puts his heart and soul into anything he's working on. He also played the lead guitar for my show at the Hard Rock Cafe in Boston and his guitar always adds magic to the whole set.

      Jason is a fantastic songwriter. Now you may read that statement and assume it to be biased seeing as I'm his brother and perhaps there is some truth to that... HOWEVER, as his brother I would also argue that I have the privilege of knowing him better than most. In that regard I am a credible source when I say he is a fantastic songwriter because he learned how to write songs from listening to some of the best songwriters in musical history (Lennon, Mccartney and Dylan to name but a few). He is a fantastic songwriter because he has a wealth of profound and deeply moving life experience to write about. He is a fantastic songwriter because he has been writing songs for well over a decade, which has led him to win prestigious honors such as the Pat Pattison award for songwriting excellence. On top of that he is a very humble, kind, funny, responsive, articulate, aware and insightful human being; characteristics that lend themselves to making you a better songwriter/musician as well as effortlessly help you to grow as a person. I wax lyrical about him because he is THAT good and I guarantee that you won't be disappointed... but don't take my word for it... find out for yourself ;).

        I had a great time recording my songs at My Lady On Fire. The staff are very professional and genuine. They helped me with everything from recording and mixing to supplying instruments and songwriting. I would definitely recommend MLOF to any musicians looking to record their songs. I have had some great practice sessions there.

        About

        Mine is a one-of-a-kind event/party entertainment service. Meeting,event and party planners are always looking for something special to make an event memorable. My service is writing a song parody to a familiar song that entertains, motivates and inspires attendees to get the most out of their event. I am also a professional pianist and entertainer. If you're planning a fundraiser, corporate event, birthday party, wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, anniversary celebration, office event or Holiday party, having a special song written for the party and performed by me can be the "moment" that brings the party to life. Also, a great souvenir for your guests to take home with them. At the top of my client list is a former US President and First Lady who asked me to entertain their supporters and well heeled donors on a yacht for a two week cruise of the Greek Islands. I've also worked with hundreds of meeting planners to learn what their event's focus is and what the message is that they want their attendees to take away from an opening session, reception, board meeting, dinner etc. I will perform at your event to "break the ice," bring the audience together and have them all enthusiastically singing along. I am also a meteorologist (sometimes we use that to introduce me), a sing-along party/cabaret pianist, an accomplished ragtime piano player and have even done auctioneering and emcee-ing for fundraisers too. For more info and references you can email me at: boomerstv @ aol dot com. The fee for performing at parties and events varies with location, travel time, date etc. The base fee for songwriting is $500 which includes a 30 minute consult and the actual songwriting.
