4/9/2021: Starting to contact fellow musicians for the album. Recording my basic tracks may proceed more quickly than I expected that it would. Tried to paste a photo of my rehearsal space but couldn't do it here. But I do have a link: /files/1119270/rehearsal-photo.jpg
4/5/2021: I forgot to take pictures of my first session. I think I was a little in awe of getting the chance to record with Joe Clapp at Ultrasound Productions at https://ultrasoundproductions.com/about which was totally unnecessary, as Joe is as gracious a guy as you could imagine and I was immediately comfortable there. We recorded three songs with my vocals and guitar: Drifting To The Right, Head Full of Garbage and Brooklyn for Beginners. With the Brooklyn song, we decided to make it a mostly spoken word song with some singing in parts. Stephen brought ice tea, crackers, cheddar cheese and raspberry cookies, which I wound up taking home and have just finished off as I am writing this.
I am enlisting my niece Ashley Mauzy who works for Vision Marketing in Lynchburg, Va. to come up with a cover design for the album. Ashley did the wonderful, intricate cover work for my Firefly In A Jar of Emotion album and I am intrigued to see what she comes up with this time.
4/1/2021: And so it begins. On my way to do my first recording at Ultrasound Studios. Meeting my producer Stephen Martin there. Pictures to follow...
