Update: Vocal Recording

Just a quick update on the recording process…

Dropped by Serious Business Studios in the SoHo area of New York City to begin recording vocals with Shannon Ferguson.

Things started a bit slow, but after getting a little “vocal juice” in me, things progressed even better than expected…

We wrapped the songs “The Greatest Trainwreck” and “The Holiday Song (For No Holiday in Particular.”  Sounds amazing and we even got Shannon’s assistant Hans in on the action for a little impromptu “hey-heying.”

Mixes are still at least a few weeks away, but know we’re still plugging along.

Oh, and tell Kat we got the cowbell part down while we were there too…

Andrew Bulbrook in the Studio

We were so excited to have the Calder Quartet — one of the country’s premier string quartets — help us out on a few of the recordings for the new album.

Above is a photo I snapped of my dear friend, Andrew Bulbrook, working on an overdub.

Primary Recording for Album #3 Is Done

From Wednesday, July 28th until Wednesday, August 4th, the incarnation of World Blanket you see above collaborated (along with some special guests) to create the foundation for an amazing record.  Well, you can’t really see Jon, but trust me… he collaborated.

All that is left are vocals which will most likely be recorded in New York City next month.  Then mixing.  Then we will have our record.

The track listing for Create/Roadshow is precisely what has been promised: seven amazing songs that I can’t wait for the world to hear.  But I don’t want you to hear it before it has reached its final level of perfection.

We will keep you posted …of course.
