Chevon Corlew-Coleman is a phenomenal songwriter credited for Grammy Award-winning gospel artist CeCe Winans 2008 Pure Worship compilation album with the song “A Little More.”
Rock With Me was released during the COVID Pandemic and is an appreciation to the healthcare and frontline workers and families serving during the trying times. The song features Christian artist Yechi (Jacob Onyechi).
Samuel Hill of VIVID TEMPO produced the song in Logic Pro X using iMac Pro. The drums were programmed using the East West PRODrummer library and a few samples from Splice. Logic Pro X’s Alchemy was used for the synths.
Rock With Me features live recorded guitars from engineer and guitarist Ryan Classe, who has collaborated with artists like Dante Bowe. I sent the track to Ryan to record guitars, and he sent back some fire.
The vocals were edited and tuned for a modern pop-style vocal production. The vocals were sampled using Logic Pro X Sampler to be able to splice the parts and use some creativity with the arrangements. Samuel edited the vocals and Auto-Tune Pro, and also used the plugin to create some interesting octave-pitched vocal EFX.
Samuel Hill of VIVID TEMPO also produced another song written by Chevon titled “God Alone.” The song was a grand prize winner of the Tyscot Music & Entertainment Share YOUR Songbong Contest in April 2011.
