I’m so excited to get this new album out to you. This one has been a wild ride! In addition to the normal work of writing, coordinating, funding and recording this project I’ve also taken on the task of self-producing and self-engineering the whole thing. This learning curve wasn’t steep…it was the El Capitan of learning curves and jumping in to creating a fully produced album was like climbing it without a harness. I learned so much though, and had a lot of fun. All the nerdy acoustic and sound science stuff is fun to me, and I really enjoy the challenge of engineering a good sound.
So to pique your interest for the release, I’m going to give you a little sneak peek mid-process. This is normally an industry taboo, but for those of you who are interested, I figured you’d enjoy seeing the stuff unpolished, and those who aren’t interested probably haven’t read this far anyways and have clicked off to some other corner of the internet. Kind of a self-regulating thing, I guess.
Here’s the working file for “What Are We Waiting For?” Still needs harmony vocals, mixing, maybe some mandolin, and mastering, but most of the stuff is in there.
