Recording is very easy when you start with a great song or performance.
Jim Manley - Jim and I produced 10 finished projects over the years. And many more demos. He played on tons of projects I produced, and brought in many others.
St. Louis Stompers - 12 released recordings I'm pretty sure.
Dick Hyman - One of the best sellers on Victoria Records.
The Chris Talley Trio - An incredible talent and teacher who has contributed so much to music in the area. Including molding many young people.
John Pizzarelli - Bucky doesn't have a website or FaceBook... but he is part of 14 projects for Victoria Records. His sons John and Martin Pizzarelli have projects too. A family affair!
Ray Kennedy - There are 14 projects on Victoria Records including Ray. Including his last ever compilation entitled, SOLO.
Special events happen when you have lots of events. Sorta like; If you're in enough places, eventually you'll be in the right place at the right time!

Laying out artwork is so incredibly easy when you start with great photography.
Linda Rivard Photography - Great work on many of Victoria's projects; Brett Stamps, Michael Terry, Jim Manley, etc.
Madison Thorn Photography - The vast majority of background photos on this site are from Madison. These were taken of my 1949 Steinway Grand Piano. They were for hire for a specific job but, I continue using them over and over again. She did; Jim Manley Brass Poison II, Ray Kennedy Solo, Dick Hyman & Ken Peplowski ...live at the Kitano etc, Awesome talent Bratwoman!
Dede Doering Photography - I found DeDe on Facebook showing an incredible eye. She has done the last couple of projects for us.
Selling is incredibly easy when you start with a nice budget and let the creators create incredible product.
Mel Bay Publications - I started recording projects for them about 1980. 30 years creating products in every style of music, primarily educational. I'll bet I touched 1200+ projects over the years. Recording, Mixing or Mastering...
Like Chet Atkins, I too started learning guitar with the "This is a pick" book, The Modern Guitar Method.

Washington University - A huge volume of recording jobs for years. The Pikers, The Greenleafs, The Amateurs, The Mosaic Whispers, etc.
