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.

Artist, Tina Newlove, Commissioned for New “Yahweh” CD Artwork

I am very pleased and excited to announce that award winning artist and painter, Tina Newlove, has been commissioned to do the artwork for the new “Yahweh” CD Project.  I really appreciate her art  (the humanity and the Divine in it).

I met with Tina yesterday to give her a CD (a rough music mix) and discuss the concept of the project and ideas for the commissioned painting. While listening to the music, she will paint with acrylic and oil to depict “Yahweh” using the following working definition:

“to be, to become … the Eternal, self-existent “I AM” who brings all things into being. Master, sovereign Ruler, and covenant-keeping Mighty God, the One that was, that is, that is to come”.

Many of you will remember Tina from the Glory and Peace Tour where she portrayed each concert through her amazing live performance painting. It is such an honour to partner with her on this new project. This is a creative departure from the typical CD artwork and will make this new project a real “art-piece” beyond the music.
