The Supremes

Posted on: March 3rd, 2011 by josh

Another year, another RPM Challenge completed.  Meet The Supremes: a collection of songs inspired by the 9 justices on the Roberts court.  At points, it didn’t seem like it would get finished but, somehow, it always does. Songs range from To Cecelia, a thank you from Ruth Bader Ginsberg to her deceased mother, to Slurry Lake, the result of an unfortunate majority opinion on pollution written by Anthony Kennedy.

I’ll be working on final mixes and then send it off to get mastered and pressed.  I hope to have some copies in my hands within the next couple months.

Solo Record Update…

Nate and I have reached the midway point with the record and as I take a month-long hiatus to do the RPM Challenge, head over to Nate’s website and check out some new pictures of his studio he’s posted.

That 70’s Drum Sound…

Recording some drums for my solo record.

Pictures taken during a session at Nate’s for a couple track that need that dry, low, choked sound.  We took the resonant heads off and tuned things way down and had to play around with tape, cloth, and wallets to get to a sound we liked.  At this point we’ve finished most the tracking on several songs.

New Record Underway

Posted on: October 17th, 2010 by josh

I’ve started laying down tracks for my first solo release at the studio of my good friend and engineer Nate Dort who will also be co-producing with me.  I’m aiming for something like 10 songs that clocks in under 40 minutes.  We’ve picked most of the songs that will be on the record and they come from different times in my life ranging from tunes from my time in Boston to some of the material that came out of Feat 52 last year.  While Nate and I will likely be laying down most of the tracks ourselves, expect to see several guest appearances by some of my Nashville contemporaries.

Stay tuned!
