Hi Everyone! I'm so excited for this project to be born! I'm posting blog entries to share my recording/production experience with my upcoming project with Houston Guitarist, Charles Davis.
While I've been part of the production team in the past, this is my first foray into solo producing. What does that mean? Good question! As not only am I producing this project but I am also the artist along with Charles. It requires a watchful eye over energy, attitude, technical process, and making sure that the primary objective is served - having fun creating music together!
A typical day would be prepping the songs we were to record during that evening's session. Charles and I would share our ideas about arrangement, tempo, intros and outros for an hour or two - then have lunch (energy is paramount!) and head over to the studio. The drive was about 30 minutes over freeways that passed downtown Houston and then into a rural, older section of the area. It was a time to relax and get to know each other a bit more.
Next Update: Entering the studio!
