Experience Headgear’s work all over episode 107 of MTV’s show SKINS, airing Feb. 28, 2011.  We have to give props to our Headgear family on these…

The Skins theme song, “Lina Magic” by 3D Friends (Daniel Chavez-Wright), was tracked at Headgear by producer/engineer Gabe Liberti.  Gabe is a former Headgear intern and assistant who moved out to Portland for a while and is now back in New York City.

Fronted by Jon Lynn, listen for the Unsolved Mysteries song “You Only Live Once” which was tracked at Headgear and engineered by former Headgear intern, Colin Alexander.  Colin’s the electronics maestro in Unsolved Mysteries and he releases his own original music under the name Tiny Specks of Many Things.

Also, featured in Skins episode 107, is the MANY COLORS song “Peaks and Valleys”.  Many Colors is Jackie Lin Werner, otherwise known as Headgear’s studio manager.  “Peaks and Valleys” was mixed by engineer Nick Smeraski, another Headgear alum.

Oh shoot!  I almost forgot to mention that the KEEPAWAY song “Evil Lady” was featured on episode 106 of Skins.  Keepaway tracked that song with Headgear’s Kyle Boyd for their Baby Style EP.

It’s awesome that your work will be heard by more people!  Keep it going!
