I'm writing this during a snowstorm, enjoying my snow day and reflecting on my recording project. I worked with John Rice from Hilltown Studio. He set up his equipment in the beautiful Carey Conference Center in Rensselaerville. It was another snowy day, and we almost didn't make it up Pond Hill Road but managed it somehow. It was well worth the effort as the acoustics are wonderful in that room. I worked hard and got the skeleton of all nine songs done in that one day. A young friend, Diana (Diana Rosa Fotography), who is in art school in Boston, came for the day to shoot photos for her school project, and Dick Kavanaugh came to do a little back-up guitar. It was fun and productive. Now the real work begins, finishing the recording and the memoirs, designing the CD cover and waiting for the finished product. That is the hardest part. The recording was nothing but fun. As I slog my way through the rest of this winter, I'll be looking forward to having it all done and hope to see you at a show soon. Below is a photo taken during our break. See, don't I look relaxed and happy?
I was told that I sang before I spoke. I don't know if that's true or not, but I can't imagine my life without music.
