The first day of recording "Heavy Magnolias" is in the books!
We are beyond excited to record at Asheville's Echo Mountain Recording Studio this week!
Here are a few photos of Day 1, which focused on acoustic guitar, drums, pedal steel, upright bass, vocals, and a few harmonies. Gotta say that the musicians I get to work with are amazing!
Rachel is an amazing harmony vocalist! She also makes me laugh. Thanks for making "Knoxville" gorgeous, Rachel!
James makes sure that everything in percussion land is going well. Drums needed to be tuned and adjusted a LOT. There is so much that could go wrong, but luckily James is a professional!
Above, Jackson makes sure the pedal steel is sounding sweet and soulful.
Below, sound engineer Julian adjusts something technical and fancy.... no idea what!
Don't become a sound engineer unless you're good at organizing things. This makes our heads spin.
So glad to have all of these musicians in the studio! This is Aubrey, one half of The Clydes, amazing upright bassist and awesome friend.
Thanks for following our progress! More to come!
