Columbus, GA (PressExposure) June 26, 2006 -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
If there's one thing SongScope Artist Development Founder Jesse Deese knows better than most, it's how to amp up a state-of the-art vintage recording studio. The method: situate it in a hip, historic town full of artists and musicians... and then plug directly into the Internet.
Deese recently partnered with Joe McClure of the McClure Broadcast Group and Buddy Nelms of The Loft Entertainment Group to form SongScope, their world class artist development studio located above The Loft, historic Columbus's legendary performance venue. Designed specifically to nurture up-and-coming musical talent, SongScope combines top-of-the line digital and analog recording equipment, the booking and promotion experience of Deese, McClure and Nelms, and a stellar team of image development, package design and Web development experts. The result: a multi-million dollar music venue that's currently funneling in promising new talent via http://SongScope.com.
As Deese tells it, "SongScope's vision is to empower songwriters and musicians with all the tools they need to succeed in this business while carving out an image that reflects their unique gifts and influence on the music culture." Since 1992, The Loftâs stage has been instrumental in developing the careers of such contemporary artists as Shawn Mullins, Edwin McCain, Sugarland, Angie Aparo, Sister Hazel, Susan Tedeschi, Dido and Beebo Norman. Now, with the addition of his "artist development incubator" studio, Deese has all the necessary elements in place and is ready to assist young talent in manifesting their musical destinies.
