11 hours later, and we emerged from The Switchyard with the last 6 tunes worth of basic tracks. All drums, bass, rhythm and acoustic guitars are cut for the second half of this 13-song monster that we hope to unleash in December. Now it's off to Black Gold Speakeasy for a few guitar and percussion overdubs, before we get into vocals and, finally, keys with our personal Billy Preston, Michael Webb.
A little(or a lot of)mixing later, and we'll have TGA #5 on deck.
We're still messing around with artwork, and probably will be until we settle on a final running order for the tunes, but we've got a concept together that I think is gonna be pretty cool.
For now, we're gonna be laying low for a while longer, other than maybe one or two appearances before the end of the year, so we can concentrate on getting all of these loose ends tied up. Hopefully we'll be able to get out and promote this thing a bit in the new year, schedules permitting.
Here's what made the cut:
LEFT OF ME
THE NEXT 3 MINUTES
STAY ALL NIGHT
EYES IN EVERY ROOM
LET'S HEAR IT FOR YOU
I CAN'T SLEEP ALONE
SECRET'S A SECRET
(COVER TUNE…DETAILS TBA)
A couple of these have made the live set over the past couple of months, so some of you might recognize them, but the bulk of this stuff we've kept under our hats. The cover is part of a project we were enlisted for that looks like it'll be part of a film that's coming out next year. We'll fill you in on that soon.
Saturday, November 22nd The Crowded House Madisonville, KY
(acoustic set) 8-10:30PM
Thursday, December 4th TBA Nashville, TN
More news as it gets made, folks. Sorry for the silence here as of late…business behind the scenes.
