Hello Fabulous Folks,
Another adventure to Ohio is complete and oh boy was it magical! This time Ive come home, having recorded my entire record!! Last week I had the privelage of spending two full productive days at Suma Studios with a crew of amazing musicians and the amazing sound engineer Paul Hammon, laying down tracks for this record to be called "Chasing A Feeling."
To think, this time last year I had not yet met David Mayfield and his Parade, and now about 11 months later, they've joined me on The Clanton Road to help me make my dream album! The whole time I spent in Ohio I just kept thanking my lucky stars to have such an amazing team helping me build this record of great tunes. It really was a team effort and I couldn't have done it without them and YOU! It was also something special to have gotten to sing into the same mic that Gillian Welsh and countless other amazing artists have sung into. The vibe of Suma Studios was inspirational and infectious.
As we speak, David Mayfield is working his producer magic on my tunes, putting the final touch ups and polish on them. While he is doing that, I am home getting the other pieces of this puzzle togehter. Theres still much to be done! The songs must be mastered, the artwork must be designed, the cds and vinyls must be pressed, tshirts and posters must be made, Kickstarter packages must be bundled up, release parties, tours and promotion must be planned...So hold on folks! Im hard at work getting this incredible journey into physical form and into your hands and communities.
If you would like to be a part of the cd release cello-bration, let me know, Id love to come to your community and play a show in your town, in a house concert setting or venue. All ideas are welcome! Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out.
Thank you all again for making this dream come true!! Its all for you!
