Recording: Day 1

When I first heard this song, I fell in love with it. I wanted whoever produced that song to produce songs for me. I found him and somehow, with a little time, a little wishing, a little luck and a little work, I found myself in his studio today recording the first part of my new album.

And partner in crime: Joe Corcoran

And Trusty Assistant: Drew Harris

Stu has a little Casio that makes cool sounds . . .

A Yamaha that makes lush sounds . . .

An AKG microphone that makes vintage sounds (me likey) . . .

An organ that makes . . . organish sounds . . .

And a robot. I don't know what kinds of sounds the robot makes.

Drew knows how to work the console. But even if he didn't, his hat would make him seem legit.

Joe is witty and almost as brilliant as his guitar parts.

After a day of setting tempos, selecting keys, and laying down some scratch tracks, Stuart made me some herbal tea . . .

And sent me home with a lemon from his tree.

I have a feeling I'm going to like it here in the Back Yard.

    And I am jealous of the lemon. Fresh California lemons taste so divine. Californians don't know what they have.
