In Studio w/ Taimane

Here’s a picture of Mountain Apple’s newest artist Taimane Gardener in the studio last week. Here’s what producer Jon de Mello had to say..

“There’s been some very exclusive studio performances in Honolulu this week. I know this, because I am the lucky person who is the Producer.
Throughout the week and into the weekend, this prolific, profound Artist will perform for me. All she needs is WiFi and four surrounding electrons (her band) to recreate the magical world that she always carries with her. The space around her–an alpha state of mind, creates a sound with energy and dynamics. The Artist? Taimane of course…

As we capture this experience I will try to share with you all that I can… I promise.”

–Jon de Mello
Producer, Mountain Apple Company
