Okay, so I just went to Airtime Studios in Bloomington, IN, and had the chance to work with a tremendous group of musicians and engineer David Weber. What a great time. I had planned to send tweets via my Twitter account. This was my big chance to have things to say that my interest people. Thing is, I couldn’t quit working on the recording long enough to squirrel my way through my blackberry to Twitter, log in, write something of consequence and deeper meaning (which is hard to do, period), and keep my focus on the music. So….I didn’t do it. And I’m glad of that fact, because it took 19 hours of studio time to do what we needed to get done, and we did not stop working, even while eating (including some wonderful pasta provided by the host).
I wouldn’t have had it any other way!
So…seven songs are ready for mixing. I would love to redo some vocals on one of the songs, but Dave hasn’t had a chance to work on them, yet, so I may be premature in my concern.
So….now? It’s off to Minneapolis to work at the legendary Winterland Studios, where Lenny Kravitz, Keane, Elvis Costello, John Hiatt, and Alanis Morissette have all worked on recordings. Add to that a run on American Idol folks (Daughtry, David Archuleta), and you can see why I’m excited about recording there.
