BLOG (Part 1): Coming Off Anti-Depressants

I debated whether or not to blog about this topic. But I figured it’s a way to start discussion, open communication, get people talking and perhaps hear about other people’s stories.   I’ve decided to come off my anti-depressants.   I went on a low dose of Effexor (75mg) in April 2011. At that point […]

Building a Baritone Guitar in Italy: Blog Intro – Setting the Scene

I am about to make a guitar in Italy! Last year I made my first acoustic guitar under the guidance of luthier Chris Wynne from Thomas Lloyd Guitars (in Montsalvat – Eltham, VIC).

Running Out of Lies on Jenny Biddle’s Album#3 – Hero in Me

Recording Diary: Day 10 – LAST DAY

THE LAST DAY OF RECORDING ALBUM #3!!!!   Today was kind of a bonus day. Sean’s STOKED that we’ve done 12 songs in 10 days, a record for his producing experience. I didn’t believe it was possible. We made such good time, that today was a bonus day, where we could experiment with some sounds, […]

Recording Diary: Day 9 – Wuuuurrrlllly

Piano: This album is a very guitar oriented album. I scrapped the only piano song I was going to do for a newer tune. I haven’t written a piano song in years. I guess I go through phases of loving the piano then loving the guitar. All my new songs are guitar-based.   The album […]

Recording Diary: Day 8 – Bob the Banjo and some merry singers

Bob the Banjo: Today Bob the Banjo joined in on recording sessions. I’ve only been playin’ the thing since about June this year, but got some “boiling” parts (as Sean likes to call it) for a couple of tracks. I love mucking around with alternate tuning on the guitar, so it was fun pickin’ up […]

Recording Diary: Day 7 – “Idiot Take”

Gee we were so much more PUMPED today than yesterday. I dunno what it was about yesterday. We got a lot done, but the vibe wasn’t as pumping as last week. Today we were back on track. We smashed it!   Dirty Harmonica: I kicked off with some harmonica parts for two bluesy tracks. That […]

Recording Diary: Day 6 – Testing…. one….two

I found it really hard to get into the zone today. It was such a SMASHING week last week. I was so pumped up. Then had a terrific weekend off with loved ones. But today I struggled to get my momentum up again after taking a break. It feels strange, as a muso, to work […]

Recording Diary: Day 5 – Too much fun….? Too much diversity….?

Day 5, another wicked day in the studio. Producer extraordinaire, Sean Carey and I started with a 10 minute long warm and fuzzy. I sat in the recording booth tuning my geetar, he sat in the cockpit, and through the headphone/mic we transferred our warm and fuzzy feelings to kick us off for the day. […]

Recording Diary: Day 4 – Acoustic Guitar & Bass

Every day in the studio is huge. And every night I struggle to sleep with the excitement of what the next day may bring. Today it was just Sean and I in the studio. We took it in turns. I’d play a few guitar tracks for recording. Then I’d take a break and he’d lay […]

Recording Diary: Day 2 – Guides & Drums

Super pumped, and ready, despite being before midday, I laid down the vocal and guitar guide tracks for the last 2 of 12 tracks. I was hoping to play “The Finish Line” on my Gold Tone Resonator for its particular sound, but it hasn’t appeared to have survived the trip from Melbourne, and seems to […]

Recording Diary: Day 1 – Guide Tracks

I couldn’t sleep last night for the excitement and anticipation of recording. My songs are like seeds…. And a producer is like water and nourishment for the seeds to grow and flourish. I have an idea of where I want some songs to go. But I like the mystery and anticipation of bringing them into […]
