I just returned from a week in Nanton, Alberta! After several months of preparation and anticipation, I got to spend the better part of a week working with Steve Loree at his recording studio, Crabapple Downs. I’ve wanted to work with Steve for a while after hearing some of the great work he’s done with other musicians that I look up to. I was also excited to work with the group of great musicians that he brought in for the recording – although I’d never met any of them, I was confident it was going to work, and it did. We had three of southern Alberta’s finest – Brad Brouwer on drums, Paul Holden on Bass, and Scott Duncan on fiddle and mandolin, plus the great Jimmy Roy from Vancouver on lap steel and telecaster. These guys were the perfect complement to my music (some of which is brand new and I’d been cramming to complete over the last few months). The music is now in the mixing and mastering stage. In the meantime, I’ll be working on artwork for the album (yes, there will be an actual album, and I’ve got my fingers crossed for vinyl). I look forward to sharing it with you soon!
