April 14, 2020, Fort Wayne, IN – Sweetwater Studios has announced that the winner of its ‘Record Your EP for Free’ promotion is West Lafayette, Indiana Singer/Songwriter Greg Jones. The promotion was launched by Sweetwater in January and received thousands of entries from across the country. As the winner of the promotion, Jones will be receiving up to 10 hours of studio time in Sweetwater Studio’s Russ Berger-designed Studio A to record two original songs with Producer/Engineer Shawn Dealey later this year.
The promotion was launched as part of Sweetwater Studio’s ongoing mission to ensure that it continues to be open and accessible to up-and-coming artists. Although the studio has played host to many well-known acts over the years due to the state-of-the-art quality of its facilities and the reputation of Sweetwater Sound among musicians around the globe, the communal feel of its team and their focus on delivering the highest-quality experience to every artist remains the lynchpin of the operation. “The biggest thrill we get at Sweetwater Studios is ensuring that everyone who walks in the doors is getting the chance to make their dream recording,” said Dealey. “We’re really excited that we’ll be getting to work with Greg to give him the full-on studio experience, and we look forward to extending this opportunity to more artists as we move ahead with more promotions like this in the future.
Jones has performed solo locally for the past fifteen years, with a repertoire of Americana-inflected folk music built around his fingerstyle acoustic playing and warm, weathered vocals. He is enthusiastic at the prospect of bringing his music into Sweetwater Studios for full band arrangements. “I’ve been a retail customer of Sweetwater for a long time, so when I saw that they were having this contest I thought it could be a great opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime experience,” Jones said. “I couldn’t believe it when I found out that I’d won, and I’m honored that they are willing to give a hobbyist songwriter like me the chance to record in one of the best studios in the country.”
