COVID-19 has understandably significantly improved the ability of some musicians to record songs and albums due to a lack of studio availability. But Julian Schoming found a way.
According to an email, the 25-year-old native of Westminster was working on his masters in audio production in London last year when the pandemic shut down studios in the city, forcing him to get creative and released his first album, Everything and The Kitchen Sink “In a closet over the summer.
The artist: Julian Schoming is a composer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist from Westminster. Julian is a versatile performer and creator who has worked with jazz bands, orchestras, wind ensembles, folk groups, percussion ensembles, rock bands and choirs, among others. During his studies at Berklee College of Music from spring 2016 to spring 2019, he honed his composition and production skills. He then received his Masters of Art in audio production from the University of Westminster in the UK. With a strong passion to see the world and experience the music of many cultures, his vision is to work with people from all over the world.
The album: “Everything but The Kitchen Sink” is an amalgamation of many styles of music and travels through folk, film, orchestral, jazz, synth and pop soundscapes, all of which are linked by the similar theme of water. It’s the first album in a series of five that revolves around the elements.
