Ben Arthur’s Dubway Days and the Metric Halo ULN-8

HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – FEBRUARY 2011: Ben Arthur is a charismatic, self-made singer/songwriter who has released four critically-lauded albums and opened for such acts as Tori Amos, Bruce Hornsby, and the Dave Matthews Band. His knack for successful collaborations has earned him the friendship of many very talented musicians who tend to fly just under the radar of the mass media. That knack and those friendships will be put to the dramatic test on Dubway Days, a web-TV show – and possible Network TV show – that will air its pilot episode on February 14, 2011 at www.breakthruradio.com. It so happens that Ben Arthur is also an ardent Metric Halo user.

The tagline for Dubway Days, “Two Artists… One Day… One Song,” sums up the mechanics of the show, but its drama hinges on the immensity of that task. Ben Arthur and a guest begin a day of taping in the morning with absolutely no preconceived ideas for a song. Viewers get a front row seat to witness the false starts and eventual magic that evolves from the creative struggle to not just produce music, but to produce great music. Once the song is written, producers Mike Crehore and Al Houghton take the lead to engineer and orchestrate a polished, radio-ready recording of the song using the amazing tools of Dubway Studios. more…
