Renaissance Men announces Tyler Graham Chester, Alex Venguer production team for new album.





 

Renaissance Men, New England's professional male vocal chamber ensemble, will record their third commercial album, RenMentality, in April 2022, under the Navona Records label. Grammy-nominated producer, multi-instrumentalist, and recording artist Tyler Graham Chester has been named the album's executive producer, with Grammy and Latin-Grammy award winning Alex Venguer as lead sound engineer. Sessions will be held at Church of the Redeemer in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, and Ghost Hit Studios in West Springfield, Massachusetts.


"When we developed this program in 2017 it was such a unique musical experience in uneasy times," said Eric Christopher Perry, Renaissance Men's Artistic Director and conductor. "When we decided to record RenMentality it was important for us to choose producers whose work reflected the the art and essence of this non-traditional, more popular-music focused choral album. To work with Tyler and Alex, whose sound worlds tell real stories and who have worked with artists we drew so much sonic influence from in the curation of the repertoire, is so inspiring for us."
