Band Practice

Put a few new tunes on the table last night with Luke Bassuener of Control & Asumya, and Tom McCarty of The Midwesterners. Felt great to jam again.. always seems like it’s been too long.  

In the past month we’ve worked through about half the songs on the new album, and things are really coming together. These two have an especially keen creative reflex.. bringing to life parts that I couldn’t begin to imagine.  One particular favorite moment was the third or fourth run of “Taliesin”.. at one point things just clicked.. 

This weekend it’s back to demo recording mode as I update some scratch tracks and finalize some vocal parts on my end.  Hopefully next month we’ll track drums/bass for 6 of the tunes and start working on parts for the remainder of the album.  Very excited to get Whitney Mann in the studio as well to sing harmony on “Oh, Destiny” and “Empty Refrain”.  Here’s a demo of “Taliesin” as mentioned above:
