Weathervane Music Organization Nurtures Philly Sound
Brainchild of Philadelphia musician and producer Brian McTear, the budding non-profit Weathervane Music Organization is prepping to release a session with local artist BC Camplight, the third of four musicians to date invited to participate in the Weathervane Music Project Series. Seeking to open opportunities for independent musicians, McTear awards local artists with free studio time and high quality video documentation of the production process, then offers these A/V gems to the world at WeathervaneMusic.org. BC Camplight's video premiered online on Aug. 24.
"Something's gotta come along and sort of help redesign the record industry and someone's gotta think outside the box," says Will Blair of Philly band East Hundred, Weathervane's first beneficiary. "I think Brian and everyone at Weathervane are doing just that." A free download of East Hundred's single "Hammerhead," recorded with McTear, and stunning videos of their session are available online, as are a single and videos from SUNSET. A session with Danielson, neighbors just across the bridge in N.J., is coming this fall.
