'Smarten Up Baby' demo This is just the sketch- it's a tune Lewis Dickson and myself penned. (This is just me at home)

J Moeller and Shawn Pittman's (myself) go back to 1995 when J. lived in Denton,TX and I lived in Mckinney,TX. We have always enjoyed playing together, having done innumerable gigs, and collaborated on many past recordings. ( 'Johnny's Blues Aggregation', 'Shawn Pittman with the Moeller Bros', Shawn Pittman: 'Meridian', Shawn Pittman: 'Undeniable' , Shawn Pittman:'Full Circle')

Recording can be costly but we had so much fun on the 'Shawn Pittman with the Moeller Bros' record that we want to follow up with and continue our unique approach to our brand of blues. We both love lowdown, rough and tumble, simple and raw blues. We decided we should ask for a little bit of assistance from others to help the project come to fruition. 

I have included a demo of a song I plan to record at the top of this page. The second link is from our previous recording. This time we plan to do a little more of a modern sound but same attack.

Here is how the money will be spent:

Here is a little bit of what this will cover:  

2-3 days to track and in studio for $300 per day =$600 ($900)   

Mixing will be 2-3 days in studio =$600 ($900)   

Mastering = $350   

Artwork = $300  

Pictures = $300   

We sincerely thank you all in advance for your much needed help.

Regards,

Shawn Pittman

Risks and challenges

The risks are minimal when it comes to recording with J. We are focused and have a good studio and engineer picked out with a European Agent that will help shop to labels and that will help us with touring.
