Record Production / Music Publishing / Studio "Z"
David West, Producer / Musician
Specializing in a wide variety of styles, Play Ball! is in the business of making and recording music. In the last fifteen years we've produced hundreds of albums ranging in style from Country and Bluegrass to Mexican regional and Early California; from Irish and Scottish folk to Arabian Gulf and Middle-Eastern. Additionally, many "theme" albums and many singer- songwriter albums have been recorded here at our own Studio "Z."
Perhaps best known is the "Pickin' On" series of albums produced by Play Ball! and released worldwide by C.M.H. Records (Los Angeles). This series, with sales now approaching 3 million, celebrates some of the most popular and best loved rock and pop music by offering up inspired and beautifully crafted versions featuring banjos, mandolins, fiddles and many other instruments that represent various north American regional styles. Its main focus is fun listening with an accent on "hot licks."
Many fine songwriters have chosen Play Ball's Studio "Z" as a place to record their albums so they could take advantage our incredible "all in" studio rate. For an amazingly low hourly rate the client receives not only a great sounding studio featuring a blend of tube and digital technology, new and vintage microphones, and an engineer, but also in house musicians to help out if you might happen to need acoustic or electric guitars, stand-up or electric bass, percussion, mandolin, dobro, lap/pedal steel, banjo or even hammered dulcimer! We also have a close working relationship with many of the best studio sidemen in the business.
