New Release!

Carl Johnson – Any Resemblance

Check it out!

Gritty Americana

Check out this tune that is acoustic driven and features a roaring slide guitar. This tune is off the Over the Hill EP by house band Chopped Wood. 

Acoustic driven songs are right up our alley. From pop to blues to quirky – our songs are great to listen to but also provide a nice background for projects – with or without vocals.




Indie Rock

Chicago-based band Last Year’s Winners’ 2014 self-titled EP produced by 3IM included 6 songs written by singer/songwriter Carl Johnson.

This collection of songs  exemplify Carl’s musical and lyrical prowess and the bands ability to compliment and help bring them to full fruition.




LYW’s EP was recorded mostly as a full 3 piece band. Vocals were added later and some over-dubbing done on guitar parts.





Band Demos

Pub Wisdom Band recorded this original song by band member Dave Cevene at 3IM. 

Band demos are recorded live and usually don’t include any editing or final mastering. Idea is to capture the band as they would sound live at a venue – and much less expensive than commercial release versions.
