Mixing this album and my new website!!!
Everything is recorded and sounding lush. We are now halfway through mixing the record!!
This is an exciting phase where I can sit on the couch and listen to all the tracks, while producer/engineer/mixer Riley McMahon works his magic on protools; mixing every single instrument and vocal into a sublime blend of musical noise. It may sound relaxing but it is actually very intense making sure that every song reaches its full potential. I've attached some pics of Riley at the mixing desk, me at my piano-desk and both of us together- taken by my brother- Tom- who visited the studio this week.
I am also very excited to announce I now have my own website!!!! It's called....wait for it....www.cordeliastephens.com ! Please check it out and let me know what you think. I've uploaded some premixed tracks just to give people a taste of the album to come. I've also posted more photos from the recording sessions.
Not long now folks. We'll master in June, and should have the CDs in our hands (and yours) not long after that.
Warm regards- Cordelia x
P.S. I have a show with the full band and a cellist at my fav venue Rockwood Music Hall this Sunday night at 11pm if you're in NYC.
