Well,that was a lot of work, but oh so much fun. We had a great time in the studio with our friend and co-producer Justin Belew at Bibb City Sound in Columbus, GA. He did a whole lot of work in a short amount of time, and on top of that dropped some lovely keys work on several of the tracks. He also found us a Bari sax player, Brian Canonigo, who came in and laid down the funky stuff on 'Give You A Shove'. Remotely, we were able to convince an old friend and piano & organ master Mark Bencuya to contribute on 'Give You A Shove' and 'Wait A While'. Also, up in Nashville, Bruce Bouton was kind enough to lend us his pro skills on pedal steel for "Any Way' and 'Another Man', both tracks that seem to be turning out to be fan favorites, probably for the very reason that he played some absolutely killer parts that really make those songs.
So now what? Well, we had a HUGE turnout for sleepy little Port Saint Joe at the Historic Port Theatre on 4/20 for the Album Release Event. Not sure we could have dreamed it up any better. What a night and a big ole thank you to all that took time to attend and listen. Since then, we've been steady out working gigs between our day jobs and trying to spread the music on the album in lots of different ways. The digital world is crazy and we are doing all we can to get the music out there to see if any of it sticks! We hope so, but if not, we'll still be here doing what we do anyway, because we have all of you and we love to play music.
Thanks for being live music fans and keep on supporting your local artists wherever you are. See you all soon!
