A delayed post. An extraordinary evening.
The release was far more than I'd ever hoped for. To get 14 musicians on stage playing together, let alone playing the same song, is a fairly remarkable thing. It... Read more

We're a couple days away from showtime. In an effort to give you your pledge awards in an orderly, non-confrontational or non-violent manner, here's how I'm hoping this will... Read more
Good morning, Campers.
Today will be one of the more ambitious mix days we have.
I'll be joined by Jason and Ben in the journey to make something sonically tasty this afternoon. We're... Read more
An action-packed September
Borrowing from one of my favorite KDHX dj's, this will be action-packed. Last round of overdubs and final mixes starting. It's been busy, yep, but fun. The record's... Read more
Melody Den update
A quick update for y'all. Final stretch of o-dubs with the estimable Geoff Seitz and Tom Townsend. Very excited with the progress being made. Sawhorse has been fantastic, although the... Read more
Saturday night's alright for...
Sure, could've posted a Bay City Rollers thing. But that would be wrong.
Tomorrow night we resume the excitement with some special guests bringing a bit of KC sauce to... Read more
Memorial Day weekend
I could say I'm by the pool, lounging like the tremendous slug I should be. But alas...
We'll be in the studio this afternoon, avoiding the broil outside to create... Read more
Of scotch and moms
Mornin', all you mothers. Happy Mom's Day.
Had a really productive evening of vocals last night. We're down to maybe four or five lead vocals left. Plenty of bgv's ahead,... Read more
So last week's vocal adventure went well. Four songs covered, but staggered a bit on the last one, so we'll fix it up next weekend. Three of 'em feel good. ... Read more
Next round. Next week.
A quick update. We're heading back in to the studio next week to do the first round of vocals and a few guitar passes. Looking forward to seeing where it... Read more
Good evening, Backers.
Having just flown through a storm on our way back from Florida, I thought the theme of "thanks" was appropriate.
You've all made a tremendous difference this past month. It's... Read more
We (you) did it.
Thank you for the amazing support, everyone. With 90 minutes left, this project is well on its way. We all thank you for the incredible effort. We still have 90... Read more
9 hours to go
We're just a little over $300 away from reaching our rock and roll goal. Thank you -- each of you -- for supporting the energy. We're so grateful and thrilled. ... Read more
I really wasn't sure we had a chance, but thanks to the astounding generosity from some new supporters (but familiar faces), and an incredibly solid base from our early backers,... Read more
Number 9...Number 9...Number 9...
Just nine days left and we're absolutely thrilled with the generosity you've shown us. We're just under halfway to our goal and, well...sure...we're a little nervous. Still, we know you... Read more
Hey, Backers (and soon-to-be-backers),
Greetings from the Den. Been sittin' back and listening to the roughs. Going back to Sawhorse in late in April to start vocals. If you've got... Read more
Three days and 14 (and sort of a 15th) tracks later, we wrapped up. Last night about 6:00. It was a hugely productive weekend and I think this one's really... Read more
Man, what a great weekend! Friday night was far more productive than any of us thought it'd be. Four songs down + one bottle of Kentucky's finest. Incredible performances all... Read more
