Tifton native has released Christmas CD

TIFTON —  Local man Harry King of King’s Productions has released a new Christmas CD titled “King’s Production Christmas”.

The CD has eight songs which King says is a mixture of different genres — classical, contemporary and jazz. He stated that he partnered with approximately 24 local musicians and vocalists to put together this project. He noted that there’s a  ninth track on the CD where they’re wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

King said they started working on the CD in November; they put it together in less than 30 days.

 “Everyone came together with a very productive attitude. We were able to finish quickly,” he stated.

He said other studios came together to work on this project — Shurrod Holloway of Kalab World Entertainment in Tifton and Boss Boy of Hidef Studios in Valdosta.

 “I would like to thank them for their support and for all of the advice they gave,” he said. He stated that he would also like to thank all of the participants on the album.

 “I’m blessed to have a circle of vocalists and musicians who came together [for this project]. I promise to take them somewhere special to say thank you, like McDonald's,” he said, jokingly.

King stated that their goal for the Christmas album was to quickly bring together different talents to create a project to sell to the community for them to be blessed by it and keep funds going for the studio during the holidays.

 He noted that in January, he’s planning to sponsor more young students to give them free lessons.

 “The money is fine, but I want to give less fortunate families an opportunity to get studio recordings and lessons,” he said, adding that his prices for studio time and lessons (for adult and children) are reasonable and affordable. “It’s a spiritual thing.”

 King said his favorite song on the CD is “The First Noel” because his five-year-old daughter is on it saying a poem and prayer.

“That time spent with her is the highlight of the album,” he stated, smiling.

 He said the underlying message of the CD is “us celebrating Christ and bringing the community together — unity”.

The “King’s Production Christmas” album is $10 and can be picked up at King’s studio, located at 400-B N. Central Ave. (behind First Baptist Church) — he has been here since January.

King has been in business for three years. He said clientele has picked up at his new location. His goal is to have a music school started by next year.

 His new location has a control room for recording/tracking music; a booth for recording live instruments and vocals (Studio A); a room where lessons take place; and a basement, which he calls “The Pit” (Studio B), where he mixes and masters the songs before they’re put on a CD to be sold in stores. Also, he plans to have a small office.

For more information or for those who are interested in taking lessons, contact King at 255-9896.
