Faultline Studios is happy to be hosting Women’s Audio Mission members for a tour and discussion about recording to tape later today.  Founded in 2003, WAM has been working to increase the number of women in the music industry for almost 10 years.  Their classes and studio programs give their members as solid a background as many for-profit recording programs and provided us with some of our most kick ass interns over the past few years.

They’ve recently released an online curriculum available to anyone interested in learning more about the art of recording.  Check it out at: SoundChannel.org.

Black Sabbath officially released Paranoid to the US in 1971 and to date it is one of their most popular and influential albums. This May, Faultline Studios and UnderCover Presents are thrilled to re-introduce Paranoid as you've never imagined it before.



Guest Musical Director Cornelius Boots has selected a line up of bay area musicians based on their ability to shred — whether that’s a trumpet, a guitar or vocally, the line up is chocked full of musicians at the top of their game.  Ranging from a full marching band to gamelan ensemble to straight up rock band the night promises a musical journey like no other.

Come check out these bands throw down Saturday May 19th at The Independent. Studio album of the project (produced by Faultline’s own Yosh!) is included in the ticket price.

Tune in now to KALX 90.7 FM and listen for previews of the album as well as a chance to win tickets to the show.

The Congress, spearheaded by trumpeter and band leader Marcus Cohen, have been hard at work this past year rounding up the votes to pass their newest bill of jams.

After pulling together a quorum of strings, horns, tight rhythm section and rotating cast of vocalists at Faultline last summer, the mandate gained momentum with the support of Bay Area legend Matt Kelley who helped their first act of 2012 pass with a unanimous vote of smooth grooving.

The soul and R&B inspired cuts are making their way through committee right now, so listen up, because The Congress is in session.

Over the years, Trevor Hall has toured with many artists including: Jimmy Cliff, Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Matisyahu, Stevie Nicks, Ben Harper, Colbie Caillat, Los Lobos, Ziggy Marley, Rusted Root, and many others.
