Brooks & Day CD Manufactured at TSI Digital Media

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. — TSI Digital Media in Santa Clarita, California, recently delivered Brooks & Day’s debut New Age album, “Mystic Messages.” The CD is available for purchase at CD Baby while the MP3 digital download is available at CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes and other digital online services.

“Mystic Messages” is a nine-song collection of instrumentals featuring Ben Brooks on flute and Peter Day on guitar and keyboard. After the songs were birthed during impromptu recorded jam sessions at Brooks’ Rock Room Studio in Pasadena, Brooks & Day began adding orchestration and other instruments. Noted percussionist Rich Mangicaro (the Eagles, Joe Walsh, David Crosby) added percussion tracks. Jazz pianist/producer Rob Mullins (34 solo albums to his credit) then took the project to the next level by adding his signature piano, synth and additional orchestration. He also mixed the tracks. Music industry veteran Greg Scelsa (Greg & Steve, “I’d Still Say Yes,” written with Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds) has served as an invaluable mentor to Brooks & Day. Rich Mouser (Spock’s Beard, Neal Morse) mastered “Mystic Messages.”

The album’s first single, “Mystic Message,” was featured on “Escape The Mind, Vol. Two” (Bongo Boy Records) and New Age pioneer Suzanne Doucet’s recent compilation, “Sounds From The Circle.”
