Cody Harris Sessions

Dynamo Studios had the pleasure of working with local artist Cody Harris during our "Full Song Production" - Start to Finish Class held at the Studio at the Chattanooga Public Library (on Wednesday nights). Cody has been on the music scene for 20 years with a background in country, but he is now looking to shake things up. Cody came back to Chattanooga after living in Nashville for a year to pursue his career. He has since then reached out to Dynamo, and we are now working with him on his new single.

Over the course of 4 weeks we will help him track his new song titled Home. The first session featured drummer and close friend Xavier Cotto. Cody said, "Xavier was brought in to energize the song and bring more life to the single." Off to a strong start!


Cody and his drummer are getting set up to begin tracking drums. Cody is also documenting the process to share on his own social media outlets. (You can find Cody on Instagram at @codyjamesharrismusic)

After multiple takes Cody, Xavier, and the students discuss their notes and rework the drum parts.

A few more notes on the energy and direction of his playing.

Tyler and Olivia finalize the recording and make sure everything is set before ending the first session.

That's it for drums!

Welcome To Our Blog!

Hey, I am Risheaun Moore! I am a Senior at the STEM School in Chattanooga, TN. I was introduced to Dynamo through a class project where our school partnered with Songbirds Guitar Museum to create a 5-minute “documentary” featuring their guitars. In an effort to continue growing, I reached out to Kessler about additional opportunities to get involved. After all was said and done, I was offered an internship, which turned into two back to back internships, and now here I am!

 

For those of you who aren’t familiar (yet) with Dynamo Studios, let me give some info there. Dynamo Studios holds innovative programs that empower students and musicians to learn about the technical side of the music industry. Students involved with Dynamo programs come from all walks of life. Although we usually focus on working with middle and high school students, we do have many adult learners as well. Those students are directing, editing, recording, engineering and producing music for all kinds of artists. We are also working on the business side of things like marketing, photojournalism, and social media. The students form a bond with each other and share knowledge (as well as laughs!) The positive and exciting energy that these young students bring into the studio is contagious! Here…we are becoming one big happy family.
