Shane Sayers and I sat down over spaghetti last night to talk about a project we recorded recently. We have a ton of music and now we need to decide what is going to be put on his next release. He’s got some great tracks of his own composition. Shane plays a ’75 Gibson J-45 that sounds amazing and his voice is fun and serious (don’t ask how that can be.) His music has lots of heart and he is prolific at his craft. Keep your ears open to future happenings.

I just recorded the first video in the studio. It was shot with a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with the film setting. I am working on the edits in Adobe Premiere Pro. The video looks awesome! What an amazing camera! It was a single camera shoot and I will be on the street as well as in City Park in New Orleans shooting the ‘B’ roll for cuts. I’m really excited about this one. I will be putting some video samples online shortly.

Daniel has been in the studio for the last couple of days. We are working on samples to be distributed (for a price). Things are still going along at breakneck speed, but two CDs have been done since the last hit on this blog. More coming soon!!!

I have been a very busy beaver. I opened a new recording studio in New Orleans, LA. Bad Storm Studio is now a functioning studio! I have been in the studio for the last couple of months recording new music and working with some new musicians that have not had the ability to afford working in a great sounding studio, but have amazing music. I want to name drop, but now is not the time. I will be doing that really soon.

Bootleggers was a blast! Warren Batiste came and sat in with us. A good time was had by all. There were two new add-ons to the Facebook page. It was good to see Matt and Mike.
