Three artists who worked with Tone Tree Audio, LLC in 2016 released CDs of their material in January 2017. The diverse artists, each from varied music backgrounds, brought incredible energy to each project.
Vocalist and pianist Alisha DeBey released her debut album 'Unite Us' in early January. Tone Tree Audio recorded, mixed and mastered DeBey's eight song album in Kearney, Nebraska. Her music is beautiful, minimal but powerful faith-based music, led by her incredible vocal abilities.
The legendary Kearney-area musician, Wes Hird, was honored at the Eagles Club in Kearney in January for his lifetime of musical achievements with a CD release party and live performance. Tone Tree Audio recorded Hird narrating stories about his life for the double CD 'The Never Ending Pursuit' and assisted in remastering archive performances of Hird throughout the last seven decades. Out of all Tone Tree projects in 2016, being a part of celebrating Hird's legacy was the most inspiring and emotional to be a part of.

'Cowboy Poetry' is a genre not often explored by artists; thankfully Tone Tree Audio can now claim working with a true, modern-day cowboy poet! Kearneyite Jake Riley recorded an album of poetry with Tone Tree Audio in late 2016, and has released his collected works on a CD titled 'Western Errors.' Riley is a true hero for poets, reaching back into a rich history of oral storytelling this world of technology often forgets about, and adding a signature blend of humor and life lessons.
