The whole gang was in again working on their record. They’re trying to get done before the Nation Blues Challenge in Memphis. They are competing in it again and realized last year, that if you don’t have anything to sell, you’re wasting a trip down there.
Matt had both guys in setting up drums. Mitch and Shuka! Shuka even got to play on one of the video game songs. Tried out a couple different mics too. This all gets to double for another session later in the day. Love two sessions, one setup. Mitch got to setup the Pro Tools session and both guys did all the patching. They grow up so fast don’t they?
Peace Love and Stuff was back in widdling away at their record. Some of the coolest songs around. Rock-A-Billy meets punk meets the 50′s meets something.
More stuff for the videogame project this morning. James was in laying acoustic and banjitar on a song or two. Matt was in pushing buttons while I (Jon) oversaw and gave brilliant ideas. Both interns were in too! We started prepping for the days of Bonne Finken sessions.
Lily D was in working on her EP. She has a handful of nice little songs. Some are guitar, some are uke. Her Dad was here for moral support too.
Neil was back in today. We were joined by Seth Hedquist on guitar today. He’s an amazing guitarist which some tasty chops. Neil had him playing old crusty 60′s guitars and amps.
Oceanwide Studios was here shooting for Bonne Finken. There were some more shots needed. A cab and our alley… What else could a music video really need? Matt had someone in working all the while on some music inside.
Lisa Loeb, En Vogue, Poison and Eric Clapton today. Mostly just drums except for guitar parts for Free Your Mind.
