NICE RESPONSE SO FAR TO THE NEW ALBUM

MARBLEHEAD hasn’t been released yet but am already receiving nice praise from those who received their free downloads while waiting for the hard copy to come out on May 15th. One song in particular is getting a lot of attention, but I won’t say which tune. Safe to say that when I do release this song as a single whenever the time allows, I will have my “More Than Words” or “Free Bird” on my hands.

Good problem to have, right?

SECOND SINGLE/VIDEO UP

Yep, the second single/video from the new album MARBLEHEAD debuted at midnight tonight on YouTube. It’s the title track…surprise surprise! And like the first video for “Time To Fly”, this one has copyright-free images that I think fit the vibe of the song. I do plan on making a “real” video, but not sure what song and how I will go about it.

Videos are more of a pain than I realized! Read more

TOO MANY NOTES

The title of this blog can be interpreted in two ways:

  1. I play too many notes
  2. I am writing down too many notes as I am listening to the rough mixes.

The answer is YES to both. Read more

THE ALBUM IS DONE!!

Yes, you read that correctly. My seventh album is now completed as of 10pm last night. I recorded the final notes and noises, took a huge breath and said to Chris Davison and Chris Macock “We’re done!”

This album was the most fun I ever had recording. It was a true joy, and I have never said that in my life. I’ve had good times in studios, one bad one, but this was sheer delight. Everyone was on the same page, in tune with each other, got their ducks in a row and this is the result. Listened back to the unmixed songs to really make sure I was happy with everything before I packed up my gear and drove home. All I can say is that this is going to make you re-think who I am as a guitarist and songwriter.

Chris and Ronnie Mormino deserve tons of kudos for stepping up when the chips were down for me, and turning already good songs into BETTER ones. And extra heaps o’thanks to Chris Macock (Inversion Circus’ guitarist) for letting me record in his studio in Morganville. His hospitality was greatly appreciated. And his neighbours were cool enough to let us make noise all day and night.

Onto mixing and mastering…

And a nap.
