Been a great summer so far, still fine tuning the new studio but things are rolling and moving ahead as good as ever. Recently finished up some awesome sessions engineering an EP for Magia Negra. Lolita and gang are a killer band and have the gang mentality that most of my favorite bands possess. They’ve been a blast to work with.
Producing my first country record for my man Corey’s band Croy and the Boys. This album is coming out fucking amazing and I sincerely can’t wait for folks to hear it, I say that a lot but if you ever believed me, do me a favor this one time. My favorite elements of South Texas, Bob Dylan and The Band meets Doug Sahm meets Roy Orbison meets good old fashioned country. These boys (and girls) don’t play. Stay tuned….
Managed to sneak in some sessions in Nashville at Jeremy Ferguson’s awesome Battle Tapes studio (pictured below) for Karl Denson’s (Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz) upcoming record with some great players – Alan Evans of Soulive, Ivan Neville, Chris Stillwell and Anders Osbourne. Funky ass Black Merda vibe happening that’s been an honor to be a part of…wrapping it up back in ATX this month and expect it in your Jeep soon.
In other news, The Sword’s High Country, “the band’s fifth and most compelling album to date” (Allmusic.com) is out now! Pick it up on vinyl at your favorite record store or online here, or might I recommend their dope ass limited edition collector’s bundle, including rolling papers, a wood dugout and a grinder.
Other other news, almost done with a new Echocentrics album (or two) and back to working on some hip hop! Yep yep.
