There’s a ton of great music coming out of Full Circle right now and we couldn’t be happier! RVA recording and musicians has stepped up the game over the past few months!For some local news, check out this video cover of Lorde’s “Royals” by local RVA rock band DNA. This song is featured on their new record “Stranded”, and the album was tracked, mixed and mastered here at Full Circle Recording. If you are into good quality covers you need to hear local RVA band Silver Bullets. They finished recording 12 songs with us and you can hear their awesome renditions of TOP 40 HITS HERE!
This past month we were fortunate to get our hands on a very large collection of sound FX for movies, games and music. Our studio is fully equipped to provide you with any sound you can think of! We offer a broad spectrum of sound effects – including Animals & Birds, Construction, Crowds, Fire, Household, Industry, Military, Office, Sports, Transportation, Weather, and also include long ambience tracks from around the world! If you have a sound idea or are in need of some foley for any project, contact us and let’s create something together!
The local Chesterfield YMCA’s are conducting an instrument and donation drive for public schools called “Strike A Chord”. The drive is accepting any instrument that you are no longer using and will be donated to the Chesterfield Public Education Foundation. The instrument drive starts March 28th and goes through April 14th . Simply bring your instruments or money donations to any of the Chesterfield Y locations to help share music in our school system. Our public schools can use woodwinds, brass, strings, guitars, recorders, and drums (no electronic instruments). For more info go www.cpefound.org or call 379-1551.

Guitar players across the world are graced with new technology everyday. Sometimes that new technology is short-lived, other times it becomes a staple amongth the elite and trickles down to us consumers. One really interesting piece of gear is the EverTune guitar bridge by Cosmos Lyles. This bridge is an all mechanical guitar bridge system that keeps your guitar in tune under all conditions. It uses tension and a little bit of mathematics to keep your guitar in the tuning you choose to be in. The player sets the guitar un and EverTune keeps that setup no matter what kind of damage you do to the guitar (besides smashing it on the floor). The applications are endless for this piece of gear, especially in a recording environment because every note on the guitar remains in tune with the given tension… Check out this video from Cosmos Lyles that showcases the awesomeness of this piece of modern music tech!

The bridge is priced at $330 on average before installation. We hope to have one of these available in the studio one day soon!
** 2013 was a busy year for Full Circle Recording. We met some really amazing artists and recorded a large variety of styles throughout the year with a 100% customer satisfaction rate. The studio added an engineer, purchased new equipment like the Fractal Audio Axe-Fx, and recorded more than 50 different vocalists and groups. We can’t thank our clients enough, we are looking forward to hearing many more of you this year!
It’s hard to pick the top track to come out of our studio last year but one of our favorite tracks was a song called “So Sweet” by upcoming R&B artist Hakeem Romance.. check the song out right here!

We had a good amount of clients come through our doors with specific production jobs they wanted done. We always offer professional standard services such as recording, mixing, and mastering. If you record at home or another studio like many of our clients, we can hook you up with a professional mix and master no matter what software you recorded on. If you just want to take advantage of our pristine studio for something specific, like drum tracking or vocal tracking and record the rest yourself, we can do that as well. We pride ourselves in top quality audio production at Full Circle and we can offer drum quantizing, drum sample replacement, guitar/bass re-amping, vocal tuning etc… for those who have recorded elsewhere and need to take their music to that next level.
Our official Full Circle Recording gift cards were popular this past holiday season and were a great way to round the year out… they are available year round so please give the gift of professional recording!
We are now offering drum lessons with our very own engineer and drum expert Dan Uphoff. Half-hour and hour long lessons are available in the comfort of our spacious tracking room… drum sets are provided so contact us for details! (804)425-5317 or email FullCircleRecordingVA@gmail.com
