We are continuing to record vocals and are getting to the last few songs for our album. Today, we brought in our bass guitar player, Dave Ross, to provide a low end voice for harmony and doubling.
Never having sung in a studio environment before, Dave was thrown in at the deep end of the pool. However, with some encouragement, he began to swim and did well. We worked on Debbie Stern's songs "Tricks On Me" and "Don't Give Me A Second Thought (Let Me Be Your First)" and my original song "Music Is The Ride."
Debbie's lead vocals were marvelous on her songs and I was able to sing harmony on Don't Give Me A Second Thought. I'm still somewhat surprised I am able to pick up the harmonies so quickly. I'm learning a lot in these sessions. Patrick guided us through the process and Biggie was around for moral support and unconditional love.
We have a few more songs to complete and have some more vocal spice to add to our album. Then we will hand off the baton to Tony Sheppard and his brilliant lead guitar playing to finish the laying down of tracks on the album. Then we mix and master.
Remember, we'd like to see all of our friends out there this Sunday, April 11 6-9 PM for a Celebration of Live Music on Siesta Key. 6250 Midnight Pass Rd. Parking Code 0411.
