South Oaks - and of tomorrow… (May 2014)

We had fun recording the last EP so we did it again. Jim, Kevin and I each contributed two songs and we worked on them via email – because we live too far from each other. Once we added our own parts and got them in a good place we went back to our friend Steve Johnson's studio (My Low Studio). Again, like last time, we didn't practice beforehand, just straight to record. We recorded the basic tracks live, then I went back for some guitar overdubs and Jim went back for final vocals.

"I'm Thinking of an Animal" -- elephant (2013)

I almost forgot to post this one. Back in June of 2013, my friend Billy Kelly (whom I collaborated with in the past) asked me to contribute to his "I’m Thinking of an Animal" segments. WXXI in Rochester, NY had already been airing the first four segments he created. It was then picked up for national distribution by American Public Television and asked Billy for seven more one-minute long segments, each featuring a different animal.

Billy gave me a list of animals to choose from. I chose "elephant" and came up with a concept using my daughters kindergarten class. Check it out above.
