The Antique Harmoniums is the creation of

Jon Charles Fortman.

The group was conceived in 2003 following the initial version of their recording of "Gifts and Testaments of Robin Hood Road". The final version of this project was completed in 2009 and formally released on Nov 21 of that year.
A given Harmoniums CD will cover a wide spectrum of music genres including (but not limited to), choral, pop/rock, country, classical(orchestral), atonal, hard rock, new age.

Harmoniums CDs are produced, arranged, orchestrated and scored by Jon Charles Fortman. They are also recorded in professional studios using top-grade equipment. "Gifts and Testaments of Robin Hood Road" was captured in five different facilities:
Panhandle House Studios Denton TX

Balance Productions Mandeville LA

Dallas Sound Lab

Audio Arts (Eye Ear Dallas) Arlington TX

Pineapple Studios, Arlington TX

Mixdown was performed at Balance Productions Mandeville LA by Dave Fortman and by Erik Herbst at Panhandle House Studios Denton TX

Mastering was performed at Precision Mastering Hollywood CA by Tom Baker

Art Direction and package design was performed by Malcolm Tarlofsky

The group's second CD titled "Heirloom" is already in production. The first song to be captured, "Thanksgiving Prayer" has completed tracking at Audio Arts (Eye Ear Dallas) Arlington TX. I mapped out the conceptual phase of the project at the start of 2008. The most significant difference between the first CD and "Heirloom" is that I will not be the only contributing writer. I plan to include contributions from both of my brothers, Brent and David, as well as from two of my friends, David von Rosenberg and Jeff Schmeckpeper. I plan to produce the CD.
Thanks for dropping by.  Stop in often.
