MusicByKip – Without U:
“Without U” is MusicByKip’s debut music video, but this native of Hawaii and Pacific N.W. has been making music for most of his life. From playing brass instruments in grade school to choirs in high school and college to musicals and beyond, he’s done it all. He received multiple Performing Arts Awards- including one for “Outstanding Vocalist” and another for “Outstanding Musician” while majoring in voice at his university, and in his original music, cites influences ranging from modern superstars Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 to legendary rockers Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, and Journey, to classical artists like Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, and Brahms.
His debut EP It’s Eclectic was recorded at three studios in Los Angeles, notably the famed Village Studios in West Los Angeles (home to Aerosmith, Allman Brothers, Beach Boys, Mariah Carey, and more). Pierce worked with top-notch engineers Ron George (tracking and mix engineer), Jorge Valesco (tracking and finishing engineer; does a lot of A-talent), and Gavin Lurrsen (mastering engineer; Burbank, Calif.- https://lurssenmastering.com/mastering-awards) to create the EP; he says “producing and getting the right people involved” is key to creating a piece of art you’re happy with.
