As planned, we finished recording the new album Sunday at Envision. Left to right, that’s John “Bubweiser” Bonds, producer and referee J.D. Reager, Jay “Don’t Call Me Ty Burrell” Hines, engineer and lineman Eric Wilson, and Yard-Rakin’, Soul-Shakin’, Money-Takin’, Godforsaken Mark Akin.
Come for the aerobics, stay for that amazing room sound. Here we are recording some background vocals using a microphone, or as we musicians might say, “picking up some BGVs on a mic.” I’ve tried to keep the confusing technical jargon to a minimum, but thought you’d like a lesson anyway.
And one final listen through of all 11 songs to make sure we didn’t miss anything. You may be asking yourself, why the ladder? It’s actually a very necessary part of the process, as you can’t hear the high notes without it.
Next up, mixing the songs.
