My songwriting efforts have evolved into an album project (rough demos on shmowkwow) and just this weekend I was able to “go into the studio” for the first time. So exciting! Nothing against Vortex studios and the other prosumer mixing environments (Cheeses of the World, Oakland Mind Control Laboratory) that I have known but this was the for-real “engineer on the other side of the glass telling you to punch something in” experience and I am so here for it.
To get a feel for working together, my producer (David Gans) and engineer (Jeremy Goody) suggested we get some basic recording done for a new song I’ve been writing, “The Long Haired Kings.” We ended spending the whole session working on that and came out with a nice clean demo. Not bad for a day’s work! Making this album will likely take about a year or two, given all of our schedules, but I’m super excited about taking this first step!
