In a writing mood lately, and have several new songs coming out soon! First though, I'll be heading back to Capitol Records to master 5 new tunes that had been waiting around for a final mix. Last time I was there Robert Vosgien (Capitol Engineer) mentioned that all 4 Beatles had been in the same small room where we were mastering which was a thrill for me, and after I came to, he casually added "oh by the way, did you know they mastered Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the moon in the same room?" I lost my mind. It's a very tiny room. You can actually see the small mastering room by scrolling down to the last picture in this link. I'm also recording 5 new songs with engineer/producer Thom Flowers. We recorded drums first on the new songs in LA with Austin Beede at Palmquist Studios (formerly Infrasonic), and while taking a dinner break we ran into Henry Diltz (photographer). If you are not familiar with Henry's work, well, you probably are but don't know it. He shot many iconic album covers in the 60's-70's. He also shot McCartney for Life Magazine Cover! Then we returned to Santa Barbara and soon after recorded Dean Dinning (Toad the Wet Sprocket) on bass at Orange Whip Studios (Now located in Goleta CA). Tony Riparetti (lead guitar player in my live band) also recorded electric guitar parts at Orange Whip and also did a cool acoustic guitar track at his own studio (Sound Logic). So super excited to be back writing, recording, and getting new music ready for release! Love performing the new songs!
