 Welcome to SCDAS (Southern Com4t Digital Audio Studios). The affordable alternative to the large and high end expensive recording facilities. The staff and management at SCDAS are pleased to be able to bring to the community competitive and personalized rates for all services provided by our organization. Southern Com4t Digital Audio Studios has been around since the early 1980s. Started its debut on the heels of various groups and bands. From live recordings on such media as 8 track recorders, reel to reel and cassettes. After years of analog recording and the sweat and aggravation that comes along with it we are now proud to say technology has influenced our move into digital audio recording. Southern Com4t Digital Audio Studios has compiled a list of working musicians who are ready and able to supply the company with professional quality session work  on most music applications. From R&B to contemporary Gospel. We specialize in demo tapes and demo CDs , complete musical sequences including audio tracks for the performer that needs a backup band but can't afford the expenses of the live musician. For the singer/ vocalist wanting to be heard but lack the talents associated  with playing an instrument, we are here to supply you with that special sound you desire. So get in touch with an associate of SCDAS and lets work out that special session that will fit your personal needs. Remember to K.I.S.S and Enjoy the sounds of SCDAS ( Southern Com4t Digital Audio Studios). 1999  Since January 1999 SCDAS has branched off into the Gospel front. Its newly formed ( SCGP ) Southern Com4t Gospel Productions is quiet an asset to the parent organization. Here too you will find a variety of session and studio musicians available to participate in any project under taken in the studios. The founder of SCDAS/SCGP is apart of the musicians/vocalist that you will find in SCDAS local profiles.   Bringing you topics relating to music locally and nationally, from HipHop to the latest Gospel tunes is our number one calling. If you're desire is to just be informed than the Pages of SCDAS is where you want to be.

Who is MO-G ?? MO-G is the standing root of many extremely versatile players on the Richmond Va. music scene, past and present. From family gospel group to Part Tyme R&B act (1980s) with Stanley Jones on lead/vocals Bernard (BASSMAN) Evans on bass/vocals and John Williams on drums  duo gospel group including Lynwood White on bass and lead vocals to, solo gospel player, to solo R&B to hot duo Featured Artist. Featured Artist soon acquired Kimmy White on back ground vocals  and Larry Chandler on congas/rhythm. And today once again doing his best solo act George Chandler vocals/lead-background, keyboards (Motif es8,Yamaha p80) is back on the scene in Richmond as Mo-G! Question-why the name MO-G? (Well since I do a solo act and my main instrumentation comes from the Motif what better name for my stage presence than MO-G Question- you bill yourself as an oldie but goodie show could you elaborate! (Yeah I am old school to the bone! Back during the Part Tyme area I did most of the lead singing and shared a very big portion of selecting song material. Back in that day we used sheet music but still got a lot of stuff from cassette, vinyl, reel to reel and yeah 8track.Question- 8 track? That's right 8track I still have quite a few in the studio. Guys in the group were above the teenage thing and all having 60s soul orientation. The funk and disco tunes were no problem. So I found myself doing a lot of Kool and the gang stuff like ladies nite, Joanna, Too hot and others from Jerry Butler, Jeffrey Osborne, Lou Rawls and more of the old school crooner style jams. A lot our tunes came from the 70s and 80s as well. Question- as a solo artist do you find that you are received as less or more oppose to a complete live set? At this point in the game it is hard to tell. I have always had a good following in R&B sets as well as with the Gospel. No matter solo or grouped live. There are those who will come out simply to hear my music and enjoy the sets. Remaking myself into a solo act again is demanding as well as challenging but not with out it's pitfalls! My solo sets are musically full meaning instrumentation as well as back ground vocal parts. It takes a bit of time to sequence parts into the MO and then have them as true to the actions of that particular player who's part is being digitally portrayed. I am fortunate enough to have complete samples of now deceased but long time brother, and fellow musician Bernard Evans. This guy and I played for well over 20 years together. It was he that was the back bone, the real glue behind groups Part Tyme and Featured Artist. I learned a lot from this guy that was known by those that loved him as THE BASS MAN. So a lot of the tunes you hear me play have his samples in them. Question- you say you use samples! Does this mean that you sample the music of established songs? Never!! I consider myself musician enough to write my own parts I never sample any established music or use beats to do what I do. There are local musicians that I affiliate myself with that will lay down parts for me if i so desire. A lot of times I use my sisters to lay down back ground parts that I bring into the MO mix and are used as part of the arrangement of the some of the songs I play. Even as proficient as the MOTIF is I find it musically more satisfying to lay down a click track and play the song from beginning to end. Question- what gear do you use other than the motif? Well I am a Yamaha fanatic. I am not nor will I ever kick any other brand of gear but Yamaha and I go way back. Back to the YC, DX, SY, TG, to the PSSR series in the Yamaha line up to the Motif from Yamaha. We use the AW16G for multitracking, Behringer  PMH5000powered mixer, Behringer  20 track mixer, Peavey, speaker max and crate speakers. Cakewalk sonar is the main software used in the studio. However we do have a lot of the other top music software available. Question- you ever work with local hip hop artist? On and off. I guess you could say that what I know about the style of music I get from my eldest son. Jared is into the hip hop scene and does extremely well at it. You can find him at http://www.akrobatik.com/. Do check him out he is smooth if I must say so myself. Question- so what are your goals for this solo act and what is your expected time table to getting a solo act well known in the Richmond and Tri-city areas?  Seeing is believing so come out when I play and check me out. I think that you will find my sound good and the show moving. If local venues will contact me I will do better than a demo I will give a free live demo. I really believe that perspective bookers will appreciate my sound more in a live setting than on cd. I do have demo cd,s but prefer to demo live!

SCDAS news   To each and everyone that has browsed the pages of SCDAS the Front Offices would like to express our fondest hopes and wishes to you for a prosperous year. And let us each remember to treat as we would like to be treated, teach as we would like to be taught, and think as we would like to be thought about. This new year is but the start of good things to come. Let us reach out with more than our hands, but with our hearts and touch another's life with thoughts of happiness and the joy of life. One of my favorite songs done by the Jackson Southernaires says *** For everything there is a time and a season only God can make time and only God knows the reasons*** George A Chandler Ceo and President SCDAS/SCGP   Ground breaking at SCDAS The first phase of construction for the new future home of Southern Com4t Digital Audio Studio got underway March 11 2001. Materials for phase one was purchased on 03-10-01. It was a nice pre-spring day and perfect for working. Vice president P.J. Chandler was in attendance and worked the entire shift lifting cutting and nailing. Head of data entry Nicole Draughn came in latter in the day to bring the latest news and to hammer a few layment nails. President-CEO G.A. Chandler (G-MAN) was the hired hand. Cutting measuring and doing the heavy stuff. The day ended with phase one 99.99 percent complete. Phase two is scheduled for March 16-17th 2001. So far we are moving on and ahead of schedule. March 17 2001 picked up framing material early . Completed all sidewalls, door and window openings. Cut template for roof rafters. Mark C. came over and gave a helping hand. Pamela was on the scene as always giving and giving her all to the project. Hopefully tomorrow we will finish hanging the rafters and be ready for phase 3 laying roof sheathing and siding. Did butcher 2 2x4x93" getting rafter angle right. Phase 3 Roof framing March 18 2001 It was cold out up until about 2 that evening. It was a very sunny day but the wind chill was about 15 degrees colder. Pamela was indisposed most of the day so she was strictly an observer. Mark worked the whole day with me. I know his butt was cold. Had on them hundred dollar shoes and pants hanging off the butt with a thin long sleeve shirt on. Kept telling me Daddy I'm not cold. Yeah Right dude. Any way Mark and I went to pickup needed material and wait on the weather. To get down to the real meat of things, we finished the top plate and cut all rafters to fit, extended and installed the ridge board. The day ended about 5 and we walked away looking at 98 percent of all framing done. Hopefully the weather and the sun will allow me to square and level the rafters and permanently nail them in place. Plus install rafter braces. Watching the weather closely might take off Friday and start phase 4 installing siding and roof lament. This material will be picked up before Friday hopefully.

This family group consisted of seven out of eight sisters a drummer , Guitar and bass player.

Sir John from Pennsylvania , drummer. Today George is making his debut as a solo gospel performer. He has three singles ( Lift you from the waters , I pray to Jesus and To be touched by the hands of God) that are truly uplifting contemporary gospel tunes.

Scdasrack 01  (Electronic equipment and computer not included) I have owned a lot of racks in my time. The majority of them were home made to spec by yours truly. And believe you me not one of them can compare to this rack. I have and old rack that is 1/2 inch plyboard over a steel frame. On WHEELS! Boy you talking about heavy. Most of the time I move from place to place performing or just jamming with the fellows a pcikup truck is not the transport desired but more times than any the mode was nonother. And I know that many have struggled with a lot of equipment that was bulky and heavy. Well let me tell you that this rack is the lightest of any rack I have delt with and extremely flexibale. No longer do I need help loading and unloading any of my personal affects. Getting equipment setup and checked before a gig has become approximatly 15 to 20 mins. Being a vocalist/ keyboardist who does a one man Gospel thing. The Scdasrack has saved me time and space not to mention the conserved energy that we all need as musicians . The complete setup would be what is on the rack above plus 1 master keyboard, mike, speakers and the performer. So If you are interested in obtaining more info. you can e-mail studio@scdas.com
