CF4: Red Light REcording

- Apr 18, 2014

red light recording

A few weeks ago I had the chance to visit Red Light Recording and see what their studio is all about. The studio is run by Aaron and Chris, two talented dudes that love what they do. Chris, bass player in Dustbloom, and  Aaron are passionate about Utah's musicians and want to help them succeed, offering competitive project rates in a relaxed atmosphere.

I listened to a few tracks they were working on and chatted with them about the scene in Salt Lake ,"We wanted to support the festival this year because if bands aren't excited to perform and live in Salt Lake then we are out of a job" (Aaron). It seems simple enough but ultimately the message is, we're all in this together and having a festival like this helps the whole music food chain. Like Red Light Recording, we're just glad to be a part of it.

CrucialFest 4: Louder Still

Salt Lake City's Loudest Homegrown Music Festival:

The 4th annual CrucialFest runs June 4-7, 2014 in downtown SLC and features 50 bands and performers. Showcases take place at Salt Lake City metro-area venues including local favorites Kilby Court and The Urban Lounge. Previous headliners include locals Gaza, Loom, Muscle Hawk, Eagle Twin, Red Bennies, SubRosa, & Night Sweats, alongside notable national acts like Burning Love, Judgement Day, Author & Punisher, Shelter Red, Witch Mountain, Black Elk, and Norska. This year we have been working hard on a line up that we know people will be excited about!

Jarom Bischoff : Event Director

Owner of Exigent Records Jarom Bischoff founded Crucial Fest in 2011. He did it with the intent of building a national festival where he could see all his favorite bands, but more so to cultivate and promote local music of which he is a huge believer.
