061714= Wrapping up a beautifully crafted CD by veteran songwriter Rich DeVore. I had the pleasure of working with Rich in the 'Southern Cross' trio for a few years and have enjoyed working on his tunes. The record will be titled 'Wounded' and sends a touching tribute to all those that have been affected by war. It also touches on the joys and satisfaction of looking to the 'Twilight Years'. Rich crafted these songs around his 'drop D' 12 string style along with his expert standup bass skills. His wife Robin sings wonderful harmonies and I provide ear candy with percussion, electric guitars and keys.
061414= wrapping up in the studio (just in time for daddy daycare summer) is the upcoming release from songwriitng veteran Randy Cate. The album will be called 'Different kind of Same' and was tracked at Ripcord studios by Scott Scott & then handed over to me to mix. (I LOVE MIXING!) Randy has penned songs for artists as varied as Ted Nugent to Dionne Warwick!.
061114= Just finished up a new Luke and Laura. Contrary to rumor, this is NOT My and Sarah's POP project. wink wink
052714= Very Kind Review of new Lincoln's Beard CD:
So I've been listening to Honorary Sibling on a loop in my car for several days now with no sign of it getting old. Big kudos to you guys for putting out a hell of a good album. To be honest, I wasn't expecting a record with this much depth, maturity and sophistication. The songs themselves are catchy and strong, but I think its the song craft that really grabs me. Theres an attention to detail that is so obvious. Its easy to tell that each song was really thought out in terms of arrangement and production. I can't say enough good things about the studio work here. There are so many little details; change ups in guitar tone, banjo or keyboard fills, tasteful harmonies, etc that I don't hear on major label artists albums, let alone an indy band. And what really makes the thing shine is that none of it is overdone. Each piece of the puzzle sits so nicely with all the others, and that's no easy trick.
Suffice to say, you knocked it out of the park, and all four of you ought to be really proud of this album. -David Redden
