What started off a year and a half ago with the intention of doing a demo of one song, and wanting to give Mackenzie Paige some studio experience, turned into much more than that.

When we started the first song Mackenzie was just 14, and we kept the recording very basic. I must say I was very impressed with the songwriting and natural vocal ability coming out of her at such a young age. Every couple of months she would come in with a new song and a better vision of what she wanted.  We gradually started getting into more production and arrangement ideas together.  In the end, we had a very good collection of songs that made sense to release.

Her songs take the listener on a story telling journey using various musical styles including country, folk and ballads. It was exciting for me to watch such a young, up and coming artist grow and find herself musically during our time working together.

Below is a snippet of one of her songs and you can hear more  music on itunes.
