New Record Released: Feat 52 Redux

jacket_front_newI’m excited to announce the release of my new record Feat 52 Redux on Night Orchard Recordings. The record is a 10-song remix compilation of tracks from the 2009 song-a-week project Feat 52. In thanks and the holiday spirit, I’m offering the digital download for free (or more, you name your price). The important thing is that the music is shared and enjoyed. Please help spread the word.

 

More release details (album art, lyrics, credits) here.

 

 

A limited edition CD is being pressed at the moment and will be available to ship on or around 12/20.  Order one now and get the download immediately.

New Record Underway

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!

Line By Line (Redux)

In preparation for next month’s RPM Challenge 2010, Nate Dort and I got together at his studio and re-recorded this track from last year’s Feat 52. (Nate Dort on bass, keys, faders.) Having worked some of the kinks out, we’ll be ready to hit the ground running next monday. Stay tuned for more info on and links to our project.

 

Feat 52: The Song-A-Week Project

Happy New Year folks!!  i had not yet gotten used to writing ’08 and now it’s behind us.  and with the new year come resolutions.  well… for some of us.  my most challenging resolution is one that i’ve been wanting to do for a few years now but have not had the where-with-all to follow through.  …until this year.  my interest in it was renewed last year when my friend, Tate Eskew, embarked on a similar resolution.
the resolution:  to write and record a new song each week during the year of 2009.
pure and simple.  i thought of making more rules for myself but that defeats the point.  my intent is for this to be a way to stretch my creativity and ability on the various instruments and gear that i have collected over the years and to challenge the way i approach all parts of the songwriting process.  the songs and arrangements will vary in length and complexity given the time and tools at my disposal in a given week.  i also will be using this project to gradually move away from ProTools to a different DAW, SAW Studio.
i will try to make a habit of posting the songs sunday night or monday morning if i can.  let me know what you think.  i always appreciate constructive feedback.
cheers.
