Custom Songs & Music

I wanted to do something special and unique to surprise my bride at our wedding.  The song you wrote for our first dance brought my love to life in a way that I never could have imagined!  I can still see the tears in her eyes and the love in her  smile every time we listen to our song.  It's the best song ever!

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.  

We created this personalized custom song to play over a video montage for a Bar Mitzvah. Loaded with inside stories, "Powered Up" captures the energy and personality of the Bar Mitzvah boy.

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.
