Let's face it, there are many recording studios in Toronto and the GTA that can set up some mics and press record. Ashton can do that too, but his projects come to life with his production and arranging skills. He also has help along the way with his team of session musicians. Whether it's rock, hip hop or pop music production, Ashton has proven himself as one of the best guys to get you a radio-ready product at a reasonable price - in the GTA and beyond!
If you think "talk is cheap", you're right. What really matters is the finished product. Click on the above demo link to listen to Ashton's demos and beats while learning more about Morph Productions. Feel free to email if you have any questions or would like to book a meeting.
Check below to see some of the exciting things that have been going on at the studio.
04 My band, "As the City Rumbles Underneath" just released their latest video. Directed by Hunter Luis, DOP Jake Vincent and Edited by Roz Gracie. So appreciative of all their efforts. Here's the video below. Of course song produced and co-written by me at Morph Productions.
01 I ended up working with an old college friend of mine, Gareth Jones on an album for 3 years for his band called "Christen Summers". The band went through a lot of turmoil during that process but I'm so happy to announce that they've finally released their first single. More so the first single has already been picked up by Indie 88.1 and been used for an Elle Canada promotion below.
12 Began working with Dorrie and Patrick again who are a christian duo that have been in and out of the studio for years now. I also got my keyboard session player Ian Koiter to lay down some keys on some of the tracks. Very happy to have them back here at Morph!
09 The Airplane Boys released a video for one of my favourite songs they did at Morph. The song is called "The Blessing" and it has some of the most emotional vocals I've ever had the privilege to record. Definitely check this one out!
01 September was largely spent doing a bunch of corporate voice overs and audio books.
01 Most of July was spent working finishing off Toronto singer/songwriter Amanda Raya's demo. We had a great team putting it all together and I think the recordings turned out great. Here's a pic of Amanda working in the studio.
28 Last week of June was spent with some wonderful Toronto session musicians! Ryan Malcolm came to lay some vocals for some alt-country I'm doing along with Ali Raney (fiddle) and Joel Schwartz (mandolin and banjo). Ian Koiter came in as well to lay down some piano and organ parts for a gospel song I'm working on with a Brampton vocalist Moya. Listening to talented musicians lay down some great parts on people's songs is honestly one of the favourite parts of my job and every single one of these people came through in a big way. I always feel so fortunate getting to work with such talents! Here's a pic of Ian laying down his keys:
14 New song from my band "As the City Rumbles Underneath. I think this is one of the best things I've ever been involved in:
Here's a pic of him on the mic in the toronto studio:
10 Most of this month was spent finishing up mixing and recording numerous tracks on The Airplane Boys new mix tape "Brave New World". I've been working with these guys on and off for about 6 years and I'm just so proud with what we accomplished with these latest recordings. These guys just get better and better. Mixtape drops Feb 19th.
01 I had to replace my permaloan Fender Deville amp so I decided to get a high end '63 Fender Vibroverb kit from Marsh Amps and get local amp builder, Steve Moratto to build it. Steve was such an enthusiastic guy and put so much care into what he did and you can hear the proof. The new Fender amp just sounds incredible! It's nice to have such a great classic sound available to all those I work with. You can follow Steve here:
05 The track I produced and did the beat for for Action Jackson got licensed again, this time to "Degrassi". Congrats Bruce!
01 The Airplane Boys are back working on another album/mix tape that's going to be released in February 2013. I gotta say these guys are taking things to another level here. Album is going to turn a lot of heads.
