Just a little update on my new album Dream Analog.

We recorded the last two songs live a couple weeks ago. Bass, drums, keyboards, guitar and lead vocal all live to tape. Talk about walking the high wire. If you’ve never done it, it’s something you must experience for yourself. A certain magical synergy is found in those moments where you know you have to get the take as its about 105 degrees in the room you’re in and you just can’t do the song one more time! It’s not a copy and paste situation (as in digital) and so, everyone really must call in the magic. It works.

We have most of the tracks recorded now. James Whelan (Under The Sky) did a couple sessions and added some amazing piano and guitar to several songs. So great!

June Kato has laid down all the bass and Brian D. Hardin all the drums. We just to add a few more keyboard parts, some horns and some background vocals and Dream Analog will manifest in this reality zone!

I’m writing Chapter 2 of the Dream Analog video series so look for that in the next few months. Here’s Chapter 1 if you haven’t seen it.  Good things to come!

Hope you are all moving forward on your amazing creations as well! Remember no matter what is going on in the world around you, deep down you are Whole and Fine.

GG_Art1We’ve been recording with our new/old analog gear and it’s really really a great experience!
The sound, well, there IS nothing like it. Many people have gotten “used to” digital or perhaps they’ve been “borged” into it
(*see StarTrek-Next Generation).
Ah digital has dominated with its darn convenience!

There is something left out when you only have zeros and one’s in the mix.  Uh, what about the in-between? Continue reading

If you talk to anyone that really knows analog, you will be told there is a huge difference between digital and analog.

If you never heard an analog recording, then this just sounds ridiculous (What newer isn’t always better? What are you talking about?!).

When you really hear an analog record (not a digital recording pressed to vinyl), a real analog recording- you feel it. Continue reading
