Final Recording Session - Day 2

Hey everyone, Tracking for our next record is finished. Since our first trip last Thanksgiving weekend, we've recorded 12 new songs that we hope to share with you soon. At this point, our job is finished and now it's up to our producer (Tyler Watkins) to mix the tracks and get them ready to master.





Yesterday, I did vocals on ballad 'Come On' and strange upbeat pop tune 'Hallelujah.' I also did about a hundred backup vocal parts and even got to hit a snare drum in the echo chamber. As usual, things got weird after about 8 hours in the studio. This is a condition we have come to accept as 'space madness.' This is part of the reason you'll hear our record and think that crazy people made it. The other part is because we are actually crazy people.

Final Recording Session - Day 1

Hey all, So I flew out Friday evening from BWI and ended up missing my connecting flight in Philly. US air was nice enough to put me up at the Marriott connected to the airport: 20121104-231425.jpg Got to see the sunrise from the plane Saturday morning though on the way out: 20121104-231540.jpg Saturday was spent just hanging around town. Tyler had to run sound for the Vulgar Boatmen at the White Rabbit at night which turned out to be an awesome show.

Today was the first day in the studio and it was quite productive. Finished vocals and backups and touchups for rocker 'No Stranger to Heartache' and calypso jam 'Justin, It's Over.' Trumpeter Hubert Glover stopped by to help fill out songs 'Shine' and 'Come On.' 20121104-231606.jpg Just about to call it a night. I'll do a recap tomorrow. Should be able to finish everything up easily with time to spare.


Recording - Day 1

So after a long car ride through two powerful storms, we've made it safely to Queensize Studios in Indiana to begin recording our new record. We're working on a new song called 'Not Coming Home.'
