For The Record 4

Well… we are entering the home stretch with this recording as far as tracking and mixing goes. It has been an incredibly fulfilling process and I’m beyond excited and (more importantly) confident to share this with everyone I know.

Look at the board now! If it were a game of tic-tack-toe then X would be pitching a no hitter… that makes sense right?Image

I’m am beyond fortunate to know so many talented and well centered people who love making music. My friends involved in this recording have really put their heart into it and it’s gonna make me cry!

Here are some photos from the process:

Image(Cian McCarthy laying down some tragically hip keyboard tracks on many tunes. People, this guy is legit.)

Image(Robi Hager background singing his face off. He’s awesome and nails things in one take!)

Image(Me, flying the V. Rock on.)

Image(The mastermind behind it all, Anthony “Rocky” Gallo)

And to top it off, an inspiring view from the roof of Virtue And Vice Studios:

Life is good I tell ya.

The next update will consist of a track listing and a timeline of when I want of to release the album,  ideas leading up to that, etc.

Stay tuned and stay happy.

For The Record 2

Well, things are coming to a close on week 1 of “The Album Name TBA.” I have to say, it’s been one of the best weeks that I’ve had in a long time. More to come, of course. There is much more work to be done. But, fuck…. what a week!

Check out some photos from the week:

If you’re around NYC on Sunday come hear what we’ve been working on at Rockwood Music Hall. Info in the shows section.

One love,

Well … The recording has begun and it’s going to be so hot. Not just because it’s almost summer. No, not just because it’s my record either. It’s going to be hot because I know the most mother frikin, badassed people who work hard and have ears of gold and I just can’t wait to get this out there and I’m very excited!! Except, today I got a parking ticket AS I WAS GETTING IN MY CAR… but even that can’t bring me down. That lady was evil though.

I digress…

Here is a pic from yesterday – the pimpest group of guys:Image

(Alan Hewitt is playing the bass, Marques Walls is on drums and Anthony “Rocky” Gallo – seen behind the glass window – is pretty much making them sound like actual musicians)

This is what Rocky and I started with today :

And this is the progress we’ve made:

Image

We did our full band tracking at Galuminum Foil in Brooklyn, NY. And everything else went/is going down at Virtue And Vice Studios, the sweetest space ever and it’s run by Anthony “Rocky” Gallo, the sweetest guy ever.

To sum it all up:

A. The record is under way. More info about a release date/title is TBA.

B. I’m mad inspired.

C. I’m mad tired.

Goodnight,

Freddy
