Blake LaGrange graduated in 2009 from Recording Connection under mentor Steve Weatherbee of Golden Track Studio, San Diego. “If you are already doing what you love and you go through the program using the resources at Recording Connection, you can succeed,” Blake said during a visit to Los Angeles Center Studios this week. Blake comes from a place of personal experience, as he currently owns and operates two of his own studios with a focus on EDM music.

A popular coastal resort area, Virginia Beach has an active music scene, with local and touring acts performing in a variety of styles in numerous live venues around the area. Virginia Beach is also part of the greater Hampton Roads area, a metropolis encompassing numerous cities and over 1.6 million people, and participates in the larger metro music scene as well, sharing talent up and down the shoreline of the bay. Notable musicians and bands with ties to Virginia Beach and the surrounding area include country singer Juice Newton, saxophonist Ernie Watts, hip-hop artist Missy Elliot, and jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald, to name a few.
