We wanted to give you an update of what’s been going on with our CD!!
We’ve booked our studio time, and we’ll be recording the weekend of May 5. We decided to add a song, so now there will be six songs on the EP instead of five. We are beyond excited!! We’re sure the time is going to fly between now and then (: Weeeee!
Sooo…what have we been up to in the meantime? Well, before going in studio you have to do this thing called “pre-recording.” This is basically where you record rough tracks (just acoustic guitar, our voices, and drum tracks [that are computer-generated]) to get an idea of what it is going to sound like when you go in studio to record. Obviously it’s very stripped down and doesn’t include all the instruments that will be used, but this is the stage where you solidify the basic structure of each song.
This may sound like an easy task, but it can actually take some time. We were lucky to finish this step in half a day, starting at 1pm and ending around 9pm. That time just flew by–it was so much fun! One big ball of enjoyment (:
The pre-recording is finished, and those tracks have been sent off to the band and utility players so they can start learning the songs. If you did not see our Kickstarter or Facebook update, we are excited to announce that we’ll be working with Greg Foresman, Greg Herrington, and Glenn Snow from Martina McBride’s band, on our new CD. In addition to having this band who works with a multi-platinum selling artist, backing us, we’ll also be recording at Blackbird Studios.
We can’t wait to hear what they think and come up with! It’s such an exciting process.
We’re learning a lot and having the time of our lives. We are going to put our all into this CD so we have an amazing product to give to y’all!!
A BIG, GINORMOUS THANKS to everyone who supported our Kickstarter campaign. This would not have been possible without you. Thanks for helping us fabricate our dream, and keep on the lookout for more updates to come!! (:
