Jay Prince Birthday Boy Recording Session
Artist: Jay Prince
Producer: Birthday Boy
Engineer: Nick Breton
Thanks to Addy (Toronto Addy), I met Zach and Owen (Birthday Boy). A few days later they contacted me to do a session with Jay Prince. Unfamiliar with either of their music at the time I started doing my research. Both of them have great songs which had me really looking forward to the session. Owen, Jay and company arrived on time for our session tonight.
Birthday Boy set up his computer and started going through tracks. Everything he played sounded great, Jay clicked in with one sample in particular. BBoy started to work over the sample with different effects and a simple drum pattern. We put the beat in Pro Tools and set up for Jay to start recording. He laid his first verse down very quickly. After the verse was down he came out to listen to the track. They came up with some hook ideas within about 15 minutes and we started laying them down. Shortly after Jay started in on the second verse. After deciding to keep it simple, we left it two verses and two hooks for now.
More beats were played until Jay locked one down, he started recording but at that point we were all burnt out. Tons of jokes throughout the session, awesome group of guys. Had a great time tonight, we made a really cool song.
