I am back home in South Dakota… what a wild week it was in Vermont and not just wild, but… very productive too!
Tony Levin recorded bass on several tracks from “Drifting Into The Sublime” and that was such a treat! Tom Eaton who is Will’s amazing engineer added some piano and percussion as well! Check out the video below…
Tom also added some gorgeous piano to my song “Gravity Of Faith” which is fast becoming my favorite track!!! Let me also note that Will added some Hopi Drum to this track as well…
Noah Wildling stopped by as well to add gorgeous vocals…
So we’re slowly getting there! Stay tuned!!! There’s so much more to come!
Yesterday was a great day at Imaginary Road Studios!!!
Tony Levin… the amazing, Tony Levin added his bass to 5 tracks from “Drifting Into The Sublime.” What a pleasure it was to meet him and watch him work! After the sessions, Tony and I went out to have dinner. As he put it… “let’s go out and set Route 5 ablaze!” We found a small… empty Italian Pasta Restaurant. Turns out that Tony LOVES Italian food so we stopped. It was a perfect choice as we were the only one’s there and the family that owns the place were fun to listen to… thick accents. Of course I should note… the food was amazingly good… BIG Calzones!!! Tony joked that he was going to somehow finish his… and somehow he did. I almost made it though mine… but came up short, but… man, it was wonderful. We talked about our family backgrounds and had a great time getting to know each other! Tony had some nice things to say about my songs… and “Lake Of Remembrance” was his fave as it actually challenged him! I guess the timing was somewhat odd and he remarked that it was almost like a King Crimson song… I beamed endlessly after hearing that!
Today the fun stuff continues!!!
Will is planning to add some guitar to one more song! Tom Eaton is going to add some piano to “Sunset” and by the way… he already tracked piano for “The Gravity Of Faith” and I get goose bumps whenever I think about how good his performance was on that piece!
Noah Wildling is coming to the studio to add some vocals and I should note, Will is planning to add a Hopi Drum part to the “The Gravity Of Faith.”
SO… the fun stuff starts again!
