I did a video blog of the initial 13 days of recording my new record. A snap shot of a day in the life of creating a body of work. I really love the idea of a record. A whole cohesive unit of songs speaking one possible thing. A sort of "greater than the sum of its parts" idea.
All the 13 days of recording blogs are archived on YouTube.
Heading back into the studio in May for a few days. Yeah!
I can't wait to get this record out! A few have heard the rough tracks. They compared the songs to a combination of elements of certain bands: REM, The Bangles, Blondie, Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, Radiohead, Roxy Music, Lucinda Williams and Yellowcard. hmmm...
Sunday March 30, 2008
Hey everyone! I start recording my new album on Monday March 31st. I decided that I am going to document each day with a snippet of video. "13 Days of Recording". Yes, I am doing the video blog. Each day will "time capsule" something about the recording process...Maybe some tracks, meal of the day, or crying because I banged and chipped my guitar AGAIN! LOL.
To view the video blog on Myspace: click here
I hope you all check it out. I already have a blog up introducing the musicians and producer I will be working with. I am very excited about the project and to be working with some really great people! I am not sure if I will finish the album in 13 days but it is just to start and see what we got.
Tuesday March 11, 2008
Next week I'll be recording my new album (March 31st to April 12th). I'll be working with producer Bryan Russell (Straylight Run, Envy on the Coast) in Brooklyn. I am very excited!
