The good guys

I had a fun initial rehearsal this week with Alan, Tim, and Matt. A great bunch of musicians, crowded together, figuring each other out, and developing a foundation sound. It was a lot less electronic than I had anticipated, especially without a keyboard player, but I suppose I’ve been unconsciously steering towards that, with hopes of a less rigid performance structure. Still, it was heavily groove-based, which is where the core of my music comes from. We jammed on some of my tracks, and improvised a few more. I have a better idea now of what this particular set of musicians can do, and hopefully I can help guide us all to some great sounds.

Wade is recording vocalists this week for the album tracks, so I hope to see some more final mixes in the coming weeks.
