2005 Highlights…

CMT 100 Greatest Duets. CMT needed some music for their new show and wanted a piece where the instruments are acting like a “duet” trading lines and such. I engineered the fiddle and Guitar overdubs (Andy Leftwich and Paul Brannon) to a track we had already produced and they ended up making that the theme music for the series, as well as the live concert. Also playing on the track was Dave Lawbaugh, Dave Pomeroy, Bruce Bouton and Jerry Kimbrough.

Bob Dorschuck – Solo Piano CD. Local piano player Dorschuck came in and laid down piano tracks faster than I’ve ever seen. Only 3 songs on this project had vocals.. but he got some great friends to sing with him… Annie Sellick, Stacey Merrill, and Benita Hill. All tracks were recorded without punches or overdubs.

Nick Sharp Will See – Album Project. Will See is an accomplished rapper out of Murfreesboro who got sick of waiting around for people to make him beats, so he began playing acoustic guitar and rapping / singing over that. Nick Sharp joined him and we recorded a primarily live album, which sounds incredibly real and sincere. There are some great songs on this cd!

Secret Gossip – Album Project. I tracked, mixed, and mastered. These guys are a lot of fun, we had a blast recording this cd. Highlights on this record were 100% authentic keyboards… real leslie organ, real clav, real rhodes, piano, and Wurlitzer. Not a sample was used on this entire recording

Biff Kittii – Album Project. This is actually still in progress, but we’ve recorded drums and bass for this album over the past year or so. Shawn Fichter and John Billings laid down incredible drums and bass tracks and Biff recorded the guitars at his house. We’ve had local jazz singer Jaimee Paul in to handle vocal duties… and I must say, she is simply astonishing!
