Well, it got BUSY again! Here’s what the last few months have been for me…
Michelle Owen: I just produced and mixed Michelle’s glossy new pop CD, which I’m proud to say, has retro 60s and 70s horn and string elements all over it. We had a great time writing together and she is a dynamo vocalist with a great future ahead of her. I enjoyed the day in Nashville mastering the project with Hank Williams at Mastermix in Nashville.
Santa Clara: Congrats for the upcoming placement of The Fool in DeGrassi. More coming from this great band in 2011, including a tour of Ontario and performance at Canadian Music Week.
Nick Perreault: I’ve begun pre-production with Nick Perreault for his upcoming CD. Nick calls himself a ‘reluctant songwriter,’ which I find hilarious, since his songs are so carefully crafted and articulate. Bedtracks will take place in Toronto and overdubs will happen in Nashville. Nick is also, by the way, a passionate graphic designer, who’s work can be seen on the New Nobles CD, Michelle Owen’s CD and my website.
Matt Morgan: Matt and I worked on two songs [Jack Johnson with James Brown testosterone?] along with Davide Direnzo, Marc Rogers and Justin Abedin and look forward to collaborating on his full-length project.
Candelora: I just mastered this record with Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering. An elegant and exciting experience. Looking forward to this record being released early in 2011!
Sora: Calgary’s Celtic Nymph wrote the theme song for the 100th anniversary for Calgary Family Services, a piece entitled, “Legacy.” The recording is a string section and piano ensemble – a joy to write and record. With special thanks to Lenny and Wendy Solomon who always show up with a great string ensemble and attack every one of my arrangements with enthusiasm and attention to detail.
Ann Chaplin: Ann and I have completed 3 songs which were mastered by Hank Williams. Expect to hear “Underneath the Christmas Tree” [a co-write between me and David Leask] on your local Canadian country stations.
Michael Rule: Mixing “For Loving You” for Mike’s CMT video release. Old school heartbreakin’ country.
