First post from Allaire Studios



Hi everyone! Welcome to my brand spanking new blog.  I had an epiphany late last night that the world just didn't seem right without one more person ranting, raving and pontificating about meaningless minutia.  So... in the grand tradition of Yankee ingenuity and shameless self promotion, I've appointed myself the man for the job!  Go me.  

I am sitting here in the wonderful Allaire Studios in Shokan, NY recording with my band Crooked Still.  Check out the view!

We got in late last night and here are the highlights so far: 

1. Being woken up at 3 a.m. by our producer Eric and our banjo player, Greg, who were blasting Greg's yet to be released banjo rap album in the car outside my bedroom.  Yes you heard right, I said banjo rap album.  

2. Having the two best sounding mics on my bass be taken away to be used on the vocals and the fiddle, respectively.  I guess I now know  where I stand in the scheme of things, although now we have a good method for choosing the mic for the next person to play.

3. Coming to the conclusion that our producer, our engineer and I can't agree on our likes and dislikes of  Paul McCartney, Geddy Lee and Led Zeppelin. I think we're screwed. 

That's all for now.   I'll be updating all week.

I don't know who this "sam" is but he obviously wears too many vintage clothes and took that record a little personally.

Following your blog is fun. Good luck with the recording sessions. It is very windy here in Stowe also - Spruce shut down at 1:00 pm and Mansfield was reduced to just the triple.

Congrats on the blog! Nothing beats blogging. Ok, a few things do. But not many.

can't wait to hear the new stuff.
