2 new shows to tell you about. But first, some news:
Last week I spent some time in the studio.
If you're not an artist, you may not have spent much time in studios. Let me contextualize it for you, because I like you and because that's what bloggers do:
(Note: let me also preface this by saying I loved my experience and I recommend Aman, the engineer I worked with, and the studio itself wholeheartedly to anyone interested in a professional experience.) The studio of the modern, indie artist is not the giant wooden expanse you see on "That Thing You Do." (Thanks, Hanx.)
These are one, maybe two-room affairs that would embarrass your average cubicle-dweller. In fact, this studio had cubicles in it. The soundroom is downstairs, and the upstairs is crammed full of expensive things. Climb the stairs and turn left; here's a large computer interface where Aman sits. Then, turn right and see a frightening tower of amps and wires. Pull up a microphone, put on some headphones (or 'cans,' as we call them in the industry), and let's do this thing.
Still, glamourous or not it was a grand old time, and I think Aman and I came out of it with some great tracks. I'll keep you posted on the results!
I have two new shows up on the Tour page of this illustrious website! If you enjoy white males singing into microphones at various volumes, please come see me play at the British Ex-Servicemen's Society and Raw Canvas in November. Both are going to be great shows, and I will keep you posted when I find out who's going to be opening.
As always, I'll leave you with a riddle of a video (apologies to old fans who've seen this before - I just can't get enough of this gold):
CFord is out! I love you guys!!
