Teaming up with producer Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello), Jon Regen set out to create a soulful story through his beautiful, jazz-inspired piano melodies and sophisticated catchy lyrics in his recently released album, “Stop Time”. After having released two self-produced albums, Regen’s collaboration with Froom allowed him to elevate his songwriting to a whole new level. Apogee’s Symphony I/O was utilized at every step in the making of the album – from the first demo to the final mix.

Writing and recording the majority of her songs from her home in Utah, singer/songwriter Skylar Grey is able to remain comfortable, in her element and capture her most organic performances. Her vocals on the recently released track with Nicki Minaj “Bed of Lies” – written by Grey – were recorded entirely from her home with the help of Apogee’s Quartet. This setup has become the go-to rig for Grey as it allows her to efficiently write songs, record and send them to the biggest artists, producers and mix engineers in the world without having to leave the comfort of her home.

Apogee’s Duet for iPad & Mac was recently utilized by engineer Kevin Harp while working on Disney’s Frozen at Warner Brothers Eastwood Scoring Stage.
