Black River Celebrates Sound Stage Renovations

Black River Entertainment celebrated the re-opening of Black River at Sound Stage’s Front Stage tracking room with an industry gathering last night (7/21).

The room’s improvements and upgrades include new ATC 300 speakers, motorized and movable ceiling panels, and a selection of new microphones. Warren Rhoades, Mike LeBlanc, and in-demand engineer Chuck Ainlay helmed the redesign effort to improve the studio’s sonics and comfort. Interior designer Markeata Daniels was brought on to make sure the aesthetic vibe matched the technical upgrades.

“It’s such an incredible honor to be a part of history here at Sound Stage,” says
Sound Stage GM Nick Autry. “There is no doubt that we had the best possible team designing the space. From the new amp lockers to the new lounge, every aspect of this renovation is incredible.”

Sound Stage was recently purchased by Black River Entertainment, which is the latest in a series of expansions and changes by the company following Gordon Kerr’s move to BRE COO in October 2010. BRE has since beefed up with a full promotion staff, added former Lyric Street marketing head Greg McCarn to the GM position, and signed hitmaker Craig Morgan to the roster. Morgan’s first single for BRE is “This Ole Boy,” and it is currently at No. 70 on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart.
