Independent Mastering's 2009 client list includes projects by John Waite, Jack White, Cage The Elephant, and the debut album from EMI/M17 act The Flying Machines. Also in the studio this year: Ray Benson, finishing Willie and The Wheel, which features Willie Nelson and Asleep At The Wheel (co-produced by the late Jerry Wexler); Texas country artist Aaron Watson and Nickel Creek’s Sarah Watkins with producer John Paul Jones, of Led Zeppelin fame, wrapping her solo debut on Nonesuch Records.

The first random drawing was on July 31 and the winner was Medollic, a three-piece act based in Brisbane, Australia, featuring New Zealand born vocalist and songwriter, Lix Bacskay, along with up and coming producer and multi-instrumentalist James North and drummer Steve Pope. The group has been tracking their 11-song debut album, Dollhouse, over the last two years and they expect to wrap production in the fall. The band describes their style as "PJ Harvey meets Alison Sudol from A Fine Frenzy, with a twist of Hollie Smith soul."

The second winning artist was drawn on August 31: Gravity Circus from Reading, UK, a project spearheaded by singer/songwriter Michael Neo with Gary Gimson on guitar, Michael James on drums and Neo also handling bass and overall ambience. What started out as a rock 'n' roll outfit has over time transformed to include electronic beats and dance music sounds.

Independent Mastering will give away four more mastering packages. The facility states that it is proud to support independent music worldwide.

Additional drawings will take place on the last day of every month through December 31, 2009. Click here to read the rules and enter the giveaway.
