Where words fail, music speaks.
Hans Christian Andersen

When you partner with us, we will send you a questionnaire to learn more about what you are looking for, what message you’d like to share, and how you’d like to connect with your audience or loved one(s) through your custom piece. Once we have your answers, we’ll set up a call or in-person meeting to go deeper and clarify our understanding of your needs. We will provide you with a first draft to make sure we are on the right track and an opportunity for final approval before we record. You can expect your final product in about a month. Because we want to make sure to have dedicated and focused time for every customer, we recommend reaching out to us months in advance of the date you’ll need your music. Of course, we will always try to accommodate rush jobs!
We had a terrific time writing this song for The Westchester Land Trust's 30th Anniversary. The Four26 Studio band, THE SHAVES, performed it live at their 30th Anniversary Gala held at the Rockefeller Family Playhouse and recorded it in the studio for their #GivingTuesday fundraising campaign.
This was such a special project we worked on with a groom, a poet, who wrote these lyrics specifically for the first dance with his bride at their wedding reception. Four26 Studios took his words and brought them to life with the perfect melody, arrangement, production, and recording.
This was a request for a funny and upbeat song in a rockabilly/50's rock style for a 50th wedding anniversary. Using our questionnaire and based on conversations with the couple's family, we made every lyric ring out with inside stories and anecdotes that the family loved.
