Spring is on it's way, I think...
Well I figure I'll write a nice update as I try to get that very cool song, "Evidently Chickentown" by John Cooper Clarke from last Sunday's Sopranos episode out of my head. I never get to update this site like I want to. I'm either too busy, or I'm too busy. (Or I'm watching the Sopranos). What good is being busy when you can't talk about it, right? So here's what's been keeping me up at night.

I finished a few projects over the winter, including a pop singer/songwriter named Zack Borer. The Howl came in to mix their upcoming CD, Formland. That was a lot of fun. To keep the budget down, they recorded all the tracks themselves with a Zoom digital 8-track and a couple of inexpensive mics. The tracks they gave me sounded fantastic! I love it when that happens. I also finished Billy Blue's CD, Blues in My Room, which was also a project recorded elsewhere and brought in for me to mix. Billy and I worked some exhausting hours on the mix, and I'm proud to read some of the great reviews he's been receiving.

Speaking of great reviews, The Pandas CD that I did last year has been getting some rave reviews. It's one of my favorite projects of the last few years, for sure.

Denis Coughlin is nearing the completion of his new CD. I've worked with him for years on a few different projects and he's a fantastic songwriter and a hell of a Pepperidge Farm bread man.

 Worcester Magazine's Turtle Boy Award  winners Carry The Zero is about to wrap on their new CD. I first recorded them back in 2000, and it's great to see the progress that they've made. Really cool distorted Rhodes and slashy Rickenbacker guitars with a lot of attitude.

Craig finished their new project with new singer, Sam James. Very cool stuff from another great pop band from Worcester. Check out the tunes on their Myspace page.

Let's see... I've been cutting tracks with some old friends for an upcoming solo CD for Charlie Daniels Band keyboardist, Taz DiGregorio. No chickens in the breadpan yet. Recently, One Lane Bridge was in to do basic tracks for an upcoming CD.

It seems like I've been mixing some projects non-stop for the last few months. Colorblind is another one of those mix projects I'm working on at the moment. This dreamy synth/lush guitar duo is one of my longtime favorites. They've recorded the tracks themselves (great vocals using their new Crowley & Tripp Naked Eye ribbon mic! I love this thing) and I've been sifting through the layers and finding more of my favorite songs underneath. "As We Break" is going to bring tears to some eyes, and "The Silencer" is going to go straight to #1204 in the charts (which is good for an indie band!)

Charlie and I have both done a lot of upgrading of gear lately. Besides the studio, I also have a sweet portable rig (many thanks to my great friend, Paul Dagnello from Huck) for recording on location. I did this recently for a funky boston band called Melodeego. Tremolo Lounge has also upgraded a ton of things, from the mic cables on up. One of my favorite new toys is the SE Reflexion Filter. It not only is a great conversation piece, it's a wonderful "instant vocal booth." I also love the new Karma K-35 multi-pattern FET mic that Charlie picked up.

Well, it's 1:30am and I have an early session tomorrow. I'll post some photos soon too!
