Rochester, MN local rock band Light45 will be recording with Grammy award winning producer Skidd Mills for their first professional audio recordings.

“I was able to get some examples of our music to Skidd through a friend in the industry,” said Justin Hawley, lead-singer and guitarist for Light45.  “He listened to it, and decided to work with us.  It’s an opportunity 99.9% of bands never get, and one we have dreamed about as a band since we started.”

Light45 will be recording on historic “Music Row” in Nashville for two weeks in November.

“Our goal is quality over quantity.  We would rather have Skidd take one song and put us on the map than 10 songs that are average quality.  Skidd believes we can get 4-5 songs completed, though.”

These songs will be combined with locally recorded content to complete Light45’s first full-length album since the band’s creation, and released in the following months.

Light45 will be live-streaming parts of the trip over the Periscope app, blogging it on their website, and interacting in real time with their facebook subscribers.

Light45 is accepting donations to fund the project on their website,
