Throughout the last several months we’ve been excitedly working on this next record. As one might expect, this new material has a slightly different vibe than the last record. I’ve been lucky enough to be playing alongside my backing band The Backroads (Randy Neal on pedal steel, Mark Bateman on drums, and Ryan FitzSimmon on bass) over the last year or 2. So this record will have a much more “live band” feel than my Art of Not Knowing album from 2009. We’ve also had a few guests (including myself on Fender bass and Ukelele bass) such as Forrest Guiberson on upright bass, and Kate Lynne Logan on harmony vocals.
The basic tracks were recorded with Mell Detmer on 2″ tape at her killer studio just down the street from mine. I’ve been engineering overdubs at the studio I work at down in Sumner, with some much appreciated additional engineering from studio owner Pierre Ferguson.
Thanks for the continued support over the years at shows and for everyone who bought the last record. If you haven’t gotten your hard copy or mp3′s, now is a great time so we can continue the progress on this next one. Stay tuned!
