This is my first album. What should I know before I decide to record?
Theres a lot that goes into making an album: writing the songs, finding a producer, booking a studio, hiring musicians to play on your songs, finding someone to mix the tracks, then someone to master the final product. Then once the recording is complete, you need to create album cover art, register and digitally distribute your music, and release your album in a way that maximizes audience growth.
Phew! Thats exhausting. Luckily, with Kosher Style Records, all you have to do is write the songs (and we can help with that too, if you like). We take care of the rest.
How much does it cost to produce a song, album, or virtual choir/ensemble video with KSR?
Pricing varies depending on the type of recording, what goes into it, etc. Contact us for a free consultation, and well put together a detailed proposal that includes all costs.
How many songs should I be recording?
It totally depends on you! You could record a single, an EP (typically 3-5 songs), or an album (typically 7-14 songs). If youre not sure, set up a consultation with us to discuss your goals.
Do I have to record in Los Angeles?
While Kosher Style Records is based in Los Angeles, that does not mean that you have to live in or fly to L.A. to record with us. Modern recording technology makes it simple for you to record in one city and for us to produce from another. We can find you an engineer to work with in just about any city in the world for you to record your vocals, or if you have your own recording setup at home, we can even engineer your vocals remotely! And if you choose to come to L.A. in person (which is preferred) we can help arrange your travel and accommodations.
I have a laptop and GarageBand. What do I need a music producer for?
An experienced music producer can bring many valuable skills to your project besides just pressing record in the studio.
We can help you:
Polish your song prior to recording
Create a beautiful arrangement or orchestration for it
Coach you on your best vocal performance, and Hebrew pronunciation
Find world-class musicians to play on your project
Keep you on task and importantly on budget throughout the recording process
Edit, tune, and perfect all the audio
Mix and master your song until you are 100% satisfied with it
Im proud of my music but dont know how to get it out into the world. Can you help me with that?
Absolutely! We are a full-service record label, and we offer three tiers of marketing services that you can opt in on when you record music with us. You can see what we provide here.
Do you only record Jewish music? What is Jewish music anyway?
Jewish music can have a very broad definition, but we think of it as any music that is inspired by or relates to Jewish texts, concepts, philosophies, culture, or serves a Jewish function (i.e. prayer, Jewish ritual, etc.)
That being said, while Jewish music is our passion and specialty, we produce all kinds of music. Whether youre a Jewish musician, a musician who happens to be Jewish, or not Jewish at all, Kosher Style is here for you! At the end of the day, music is a universal language .
What is the best mic to record with at home?
