Daniel Schauer’s new EP Father and Sons

fathers-sons-album-coverDaniel approached me to help him with one primary goal in mind: to make his musical tracks the best they possibly could be. To take the recorded songs  up a notch would ultimately require recording some new lead vocal tracks and remixing the songs.  I was able to go over everything with a fresh perspective and willingness to take some chances with the mixes.  That is the benefit of not being so close to the songs. As a producer, I get to hear nearly complete songs for the first time, and I often detect things in the mixes that can become impossible to hear after listening to the song so many times.  You know. . .  the catchy kind you hear so often you start dreaming the lyrics and accidentally quoting the song to people. Daniel  has great songs, varying in style and creating interest in his album.

Stoned Evergreen Travelers – Waste of Time

SET and me last day of trackingI found that working with this group on their new LP ‘Waste of Time’ was anything but.  It’s difficult to put a finger on the exact genre of music this group creates, but I love the energy.  Led by the primary songwriter, guitarist and lead vocalist, Kevin Pfefferle, Stoned Evergreen Travelers releases a free-flowing style of music that has been influenced by genres such as metal, rock, rockabilly, and even some blues.

Slim Pickins… Pick Three and Get ‘er Done

Olympia based country roots band Slim Pickens hit South sound sound last month. They decided to pick three tracks ( two covers and an original song) to record in one session. This would be used as demo material. Creating the sound for the piece included standup bass player and vocalist Thad Williams, Singer and guitar player Ana Wright, harmonica player Mike Burdorff and Matt Balder holding down the rhythm on drums. Because the angle of this project was to get the best possible sound, all tracks were recorded live as a group including vocals. The outcome was three fantastic, full songs that sound anything but slim. The session moved along quickly with the fun upbeat music and the group was a real treat to work with. I look forward to their upcoming EP later this summer. I’ve included a clip of their original track “Mary Lee” for you listen to. Visit their Facebook Page  and check out their calendar for upcoming shows.
