This album ranges from lyric driven, finger picking folk tunes to songs with more accompaniment featuring multiple guitars, harmonica, violin, birds, bells, bass, charango,a funky piano, rain, a protest demonstration chant and an ancient banjo. I am proud of it. I hope you have a chance to listen to it.
The recording process was pretty unique. 5 songs recorded in Pro Tools in Jeremy Manjorin's home studio. Then I recorded the rest in Garageband in various rooms using an Apogee One, a condenser mic and a Mac. Those tracks were transferred over to Pro Tools for mixing....and it worked! So that was pretty damn cool.
