Congratulations to George Seara for his Juno win :: Recording Engineer of the Year!

The Flyingbow Ministry team and I would like to congratulate George Seara for his Juno win last night for Recording Engineer of the Year! Richard Cleaver, Brad Toews and I had the honour of working with him at Phase One Studios in the Mastering of our 2010 Canadian GMA Covenant Award winning CD release of YAHWEH. You can read my original blog posting here. George played a integral role in the final sound and success of this project. He is not just a great engineer but also a really nice guy! Here are a few pictures of George “in action” at Phase One. Until next time. T

Congratulations, George!



Trevor and Band release their much anticipated “Yahweh” CD on the weekend of February 5-6, 2010

Trevor Dick and the 5th String BLVD. Band (Brad Toews, Corey Lacey, Will Jarvis & Steve Heathcote) officially release the HARD COPY of their much anticipated “YAHWEH” CD and also reveal Tina Newlove’s commissioned painting which became the artwork for the CD.

Every attention to the highest quality production was attained in the recording of “YAHWEH”. Here are some of the details …

Recorded by veteran Audio Engineer, Richard Cleaver, at the world renowned 1500 sq. ft. PHASE ONE (Studio A) through a vintage Neve Board, the recording has a depth and warmth unparalleled in previous projects. Trevor states:

“we have set a new standard for ourselves both in our playing and the quality of the recording captured on this project … it is truly special. It was also a real honour to work with Richard Cleaver once again after such a great partnership on the Glory and Peace album  … ”

RICHARD CLEAVER is a passionate audio engineer with over thirty years of experience in recording and live sound. He has worked on hundreds of projects over the years and in many of the top flight recording studios in Toronto and Nashville. He has served as a judge for the Canadian Juno Awards, actively developed Canadian musical talent in contemporary Christian music and taught audio engineering and recording techniques. With a keen musical ear and a relentless focus on quality, Richard has built a reputation for doing whatever it takes to capture sound with excellence.

The project was also Mastered at PHASE ONE (Studio C) by award winning GEORGE SEARA.

A musician and lifelong recording enthusiast, George has quickly become one of Toronto’s leading Mix and Mastering Engineers. He works in all genres of music and happy recent clients include Rihanna, Mos Def, Holly Cole, 50 Cent, Sting, Herbie Hancock and Finger Eleven. George’s musical ear and astute attention to detail has aided him to grace the way between the recording studio and the mastering room. Recent mastering works include Anne Murray,  John McDermott and U2.

Latest FRONTLINE “Flyingbow News” from Trevor

Dear Friends and Supporters,

It is that time once more to give you an update on Flyingbow Music Ministry. As I write, we are gearing up for the 2009 “Glory and Peace” Christmas Tour which will stay closer to home this time around in beautiful Ontario. We will be playing in the following city centers: Guelph, London, Port Perry, Burlington, Belleville, Parry Sound, Sudbury, Ottawa and Kitchener. We have great memories of our tour last year to New Brunswick and P.E.I. We hope to take it to western Canada perhaps in 2010.

Here are a few important bullet updates on Flyingbow:


• I  joined fellow Compassion Music Artist, Geoff Moore at my home church of Lakeside in Guelph last weekend (Nov. 15/09)  for an exciting Compassion Sunday Event. It was an awesome day. You can view the video footage of the full service below. Over 180 children were sponsored at this special event – a great morning!

I want to thank all of you who have made the sacrifices this year to sponsor a child through Compassion Canada. You are making an incredible difference in your “adopted” child’s life not only now, but for eternity. Remember to take the time to write letters to your child. They are treasured. As a Compassion Artist, Compassion is a big part of what I do in this Music Missionary Ministry. To sponsor a child today, link to:


• As many of you know, this Fall the Band and I entered Phase One Recording Studio A, one of Canada’s finest recording facilities, for a week of tracking the next Flyingbow CD Project entitled  “Yahweh”, engineered by Richard Cleaver. Hundreds of hours have been spent thus far on recording, mixing and editing. A mastering date has been set for Dec. 11 (also at Phase One – Studio C ) with George Seara whose recent clients include Rihanna, Mos Def, Holly Cole, 50 Cent, Sting, Herbie Hancock and Finger Eleven. We have certainly raised the bar on the quality of this album. Again, I am blessed to work with some of the finest musicians in the country: Steve Heathcote (Drums and Percussion), Will Jarvis (acoustic and electric Bass), Corey Lacey (acoustic and electric Guitar) and Brad Toews (Piano and Keyboards).

• We are very excited about the imminent release of the  “Yahweh” CD Project – it is coming together very nicely but has taken a little longer to complete than first anticipated … as someone said, “you just can’t rush a good thing” … So, we are anticipate a CD release date of the first week of January with coinciding  “Yahweh” Concert Tour Dates through 2010.

* For a rare preview of the fresh “Yahweh” arrangements, we encourage you to attend the “Yahweh” CD preview Concert this coming Friday, Nov. 27/09 at Lakeside Church in support of International Missions. Details on the Flyingbow Event Calendar.
