KPG Creative expands into music production
A Chamber member company who already specializes in the creative space, has launched a new, unique extension of their brand. Mason-based KPG Creative, a video and live event production company, has launched AuralMix Labs, a music production and recording studio.
The studio will allow emerging musical artists to take their career to the next level, according to Bob Kelly, founder of KPG Creative and AuralMix Labs. "We provide an experienced and highly talented team of producers and engineers for our clients. We offer all of the essential music services you would expect from a premiere recording studio, but we take it a step further. While others are focused on the session, we are driven by our passion for creating and sharing great music," said Kelly.
One of the first artists to make a name for the studio is also an executive producer, chief engineer and composer for the company. Leonard C. Walston's song, "You Should Be Here", recently reached the #11 spot on the UK Soul Charts and is receiving airplay in the U.S. He has also produced original music for many national clients including BET, Marshall Fields, Food Network, McDonald's and Clear Channel.
"We all genuinely love what we do, and we enjoy being able to share that experience with others," Walston explains, "While we've invested in all the necessary equipment and technology for quality audio production, we understand that the gear can't make the music on its own. Everyone on our team has both the technical knowledge to capture the sound properly during the recording phase, and the creative ear to steer the production, turning what starts out as a single idea into a great song," said Walston.
Since being launched, AuralMix Labs has produced everything from R&B/Soul, Jazz, and Gospel, to Hip-Hop, Country, and Rock. "We believe that AuralMix Labs and KPG Creative are a unique fit," adds Kelly. "From music videos, to tour visuals, blending the music and sound expertise of the producers and engineers of AuralMix Labs with the talents of the producers, editors and production teams of KPG Creative means that artists and management can feel confident that they are working with a cohesive team who will keep the quality of the sound and the impact of the visuals in perfect alignment."
KPG Creative, a Chamber member, was founded in 2002.
