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.
A couple months ago I recorded a few songs direct to vinyl on National Record Store Day at the History of Recorded Sounds.
They were then dubbed off the vinyl into digital land as an Mp3 so you could hear them here. Just me and my guitar — Songs for the times…
To all the musicians and creative people out there — keep on going!
Do not judge yourself by what is or isn’t reflected back to you by others, social media or whatever external metric. You are an ARTIST — get real — you are a power generator of pure creative source. Your resonance changes the frequency of the planet and adds a new variable to the ever changing tapestry we live. YES it is so!
We did our first analog test recordings the other day and they came out great! We’ve decided to send the heads out to be “relapped” which will make the recording sound even better. We are very excited! Continue reading →
Its the time when it all starts to make sense, this dimensional blending alchemy we are in is showing itself more and more. Enjoy! This is the time you come into full being and finally see through the wall of fog once and for all. 🙂
Come into a greater understanding of your creativity.
Heavily influenced by the sounds of the 70’s,
Grace Gravity creates music that expresses
what we’re going through, living through, and being through.
The message is strong and hopeful, and has forward motion.

We’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 →
