Tracking and mixing my new album "South by Northwest" is finally completed and is currently being mastered at ZenMastering in San Diego. Finally.. I am shooting for a late March or early April release to all the digital outlets, CDs too follow. This one was a lot of work, a lot more pro tools tracks and moving parts than the least two releases. The album is a move away from the Singer Songwriter genre and back into the power pop/rock vein where my strengths lie. A lot of effort was put into production and arrangement. What started out as a labor of love turned into to a relentless drive to make it the best it can be. When singularly performing every aspect of the creative process, the studio itself becomes the band. This tends to work best as an iterative process of tracking, mixing and re-tracking as the production solidifies. Thats how I work anyway and its a slow process. Regardless of the future reception this represents where I am musically at this age and I am grateful that I can still spend the time and have the skill set to make these records.
Thanks to my understanding wife for both hanging in there and creating that awesome cover art!!
