When I left Heather Lutrell's comfy Atlanta home and amazing hospitality, (after finishing my Gyrotonic pre-training,) I drove like mad Sunday, October 19, to Columbia, SC to record some of my new tunes. I was just in time to roll into Archer Avenue Studios the day before tracking. http://www.archeravenuestudio.com/
There, producer Kenny McWilliams and our drummer Josh Keen were setting up to get drum sounds for the new recording, which took place Monday, October 20th.
We got two tracks and they sound amazing even in the rough mix stage. I'm going to do more recordings. However this will take time and funding that I desperately need. I'm figuring out ways to fund the recording- all ideas and donations welcome!!! You will get many thanks and special gifts of unreleased material. You can also name a gift you want!

A WEEK IN ATLANTA- FANTASTIC!!
Just spent a week in Atlanta, GA. The focus of my visit was Gyrotonic Pre-training. I had a wonderful experience working with master trainer Elizabeth Holland. http://elizabeth-holland.com/ If you would like to know more about this system of fitness, wellness and expansion, please visit her site and go also to www.gyrotonic.com. I truly recommend this for all ages and fitness levels.
Also, I stayed a few days with awesome musical artist Heather Lutrell who just released a CD called "Boat Paddle"... I highly recommend all people BUY this album now. It has become the soundtrack to my life and travels! It is her best work to date. Onward my musical friend and inspiration!

POW POW SOUND recordings AND others!!
Recently the band and I went into an up-and coming studio in Columbia called Pow- Pow Sound. The engineer/producer there is John Furr from MANY awesome bands. I know him best as the co-songwriter and guitar player for our band called Danielle Howle and the Tantrums.
My band tracked 5 tunes in John's studio and they sound so freakin great! I cannot wait to release them. I am trying to figure out the best ways to do this to serve the work.
