Recording Log: Mixing Blue Hearts, 4.1.14

Mixed tracks with Allen Bergendahl, AKA Viking Recording. Done and Done.
Curtis’s pedal steel sounds divine, and Grant’s backing vocals are like honey. I’m excited about this set of songs. Just need to figure out how to release them.

Recording Log: Blue Hearts EP, 3.14

Curtis Patton, Allen Bergendahl and I finished the tracking for the EP: Blue Hearts, at the Yacht in Scott’s Addition. Curtis was generous to lend his time and talent to track some sonic  sublime pedal steel.  The instrument set-up itself is beautiful–all of the components, the magic seat and the special boots. The playing of it is like some mystical skill that I totally don’t understand. The spectrum of sound he can get is insanity–from a whisper to a church organ. I was lucky enough to have the chance to witness the finesse he’s been honing over the past several months.
