Had a great day in the studio with Michele D’Amour and the Love Dealers, laying down tracks for our upcoming album. We actually finished two entire songs, so it was a productive day. Working in the studio is a lot of fun, because the pressures and manual work of a live show are off, so you can relax a little knowing mistakes can be fixed and the only audience you want to please are your bandmates and producer. Stay tuned for more information on the new album as we get into 2022!
Katrina and I had a great day in the studio recording four cover songs for a demo. While we had the chance, we also decided to shoot a video for one of them, and for that we selected “Santeria” by Sublime. Recording a video is an interesting experience, because you record the song first, and then you mime along to it while doing multiple takes of video from multiple angles, so that later on you can fit the video footage to the audio in editing. Continuity errors are pretty common – if you look carefully, you’ll notice one flub in the video where my hands clearly aren’t playing what’s being heard, but overall I think it turned out pretty well and I enjoyed recording this.
