Happy *&&#*U(&#*(&# New Year! I bet y’all thought I’d gone away for good… nope! Chris, Karen, Ben and I are going to begin recording a new album with Graham O’Brien and Adam Krinsky at the end of January. We’ve got about 18 new songs to work with, but I think we’ll keep it to 10 or 12. If you heard Graham’s album “Live Drums” released this past year on NoEcho Records (http://www.noechorecords.com/) out of London UK, you’ll be excited to hear what he does with the drums and mixes of our upcoming record. I don’t have a working title for the album yet, but I’m sure it will come to me in the next few weeks.
In case you didn’t catch Food For The Beloved’s Christmas album, here’s a link to it: http://foodforthebeloved.wordpress.com/2010/12/16/a-beloved-christmas-with-food-2010/. Tim was kind enough to add a track of mine called “Waking Up My Brother” to the compilation which Gunnar Gunderson and I worked on.
The team and I have been recording some demos to send to Adam and Graham in anticipation of the recording session. I’ve attached a couple of the demos recorded with just one Rode NT1A microphone and Centrance MicPortPro preamp. It’s all through one mic at one time, so it’s a little rough, but… you get the idea.
