I've just finished recording.
I had to sing 2 songs today, Day Waster and My Songs. I also had to make an executive decision and scrap Celebrity Status for the time being. It wasn't working out right and not enough time to make it right. I will be performing it across the Canadian landscape, and will record it in the future.
Right now Jeff is doing some tweeks to the vocals before the final mixing commences.
I've gotta say it's pretty weird listening to vocals with out the music to back it up.
Safe to say I will never put out an acapella album.
I've got a few of the Studio's lined up across Canada where I will be recording some songs that did not get to be on the album. Since it got shortened to an EP. the songs recorded on the road will be released a day or 2 after the session on Bandcamp and itunes...if all goes according to plan.
So far I will record at Unity Studios in Barrie, ON, James Murdoch's Studio in Edmonton, AB and Pumpk'n Patch Studios in Memramcook, NB. Trying to work out time in BC to get another one done, but it really depends on the gigs. my time in BC is very tight.
I've went through some changes for the CD
here's the 1st one I planned on using. I still really like the image. I took the photo in Montreal.
I will probably make use of it for stickers or a t-shirt.
This is the second version I was messing about with water colour backgrounds. I'll be using a version of this for the tour poster but in shades of brown. I may still include this image inside the CD, It's up in the air.
Here is the final draft still staying with the water colour theme. The album was almost called Water Colour, only because I had no idea what to call it.
Because the album is taking more time than expected I won't be having a CD release party before the tour. Basically I'll be getting the discs have a couple days to mail them off to some radio stations and then tour time. Maybe I'll be able to do a late party when I'm done touring but it won't be until October... Kind of weird doing a CD Release 3 months after the album is out. maybe I'll throw a CD Celebration. who knows. I've got months on the road to plot that out.
I also just lied about recording we are adding in some background na na na's! Right meow.
Here's Matt Snell
And Jeff Pelletier takes a crack at it.
Here's what Day Waster Looks like.
