25th Street Recording Studio - Oakland California

From the mind and ears of producer/multi-instrumentalist, Joe Bagale, comes a sound that is fresh but tangibly rooted in nostalgia. The name is Otis McDonald. The mission? Good Music. In 2015, Bagale dropped 30 tracks for free, under the name Otis McDonald. Released as copyright free music, exclusively through the YouTube audio library, these tracks have now been downloaded over 3 million times, and appear in over 3 million videos all around the world. Bagale is currently working on a full length Otis McDonald album, and with a brand new band he plans on giving the world a dose of the past while always looking to the future.

Over 10 million previews on YouTube

Musically it’s both playful and emotive, while giving listeners a sense of optimism and joy. Just because it’s rooted in the blues, doesn’t mean it has to have the blues. There are beats that’ll make you wanna sweat on the dance floor. A thumpin’ bass that inspires folks to make love. Synths, guitars and horns that’ll cut through to your core, and a voice that reminds us all what it’s like to be human. 

Combining the skills of a musician, with the power of both old and new technology, the sound of Otis McDonald was born, reminding us that music is a universal language that will always have a past and always have a future.

What's in it for you: as a doubleOone member, you will attend a 4 hour recording session in a state of the art studio, and share this unique moment with a band as they record a track, and work together to reach excellence.

You will be in the tracking room with the musicians as they play and record. We give you access to the unfiltered creative process of one of San Francisco's greatest band, a sense of how the musicians understand and evolve their art You will find that studios are sanctuaries, places where time flows at its own natural pace, and where true inspiration is captured in sound and music.

If you are a musician yourself, we might even have a surprise for you. The recording is followed by a cultural chat and a Q&A session, addressing creativity, emotional labor, art and life choices, communication,  practice, inspiration, achievements and the road to one's true calling, ambition and mastery.

*Our recording sessions standards: you will attend the recording session with a small doubleOone group (only 20-25 spots available/recording), and engage in creating genuine music. Catering and wine will be served.
