His new state of the art recording/film studio in North Carolina is now a top destination for artists to enjoy recording in a beautiful setting along the Deep River south of Raleigh.
A collection of 3 films were recently shot at his facility and JD still works with the big artists… but his love of developing new artists shows with the “Bands4good.com” challenge benefiting music education in schools.
