Lots of last minute changes in September, but I’m glad to say the album is finally getting there and sounding great! I expect mastering to take place in the middle of this month, meanwhile the album cover/inside sleeve art is being put together although it’s really just a question of what font to use at this point, all the art is pretty much ready to go.
And so, I’m happy to say that this will be a band-titled project, even though I’m treating it with the same degree of work and care that I took with my previous albums, I wanted to have a focus on a group sound. I think it was 2 or 3 years ago that Chris Lamont(drums), Dino Verginella(bass) and myself(keys/vocals) got together to rehearse and arrange some new material and then began recording. A lot of unforeseen delays occurred along the way, but I’m very glad to say that the spirit of those initial rehearsals lives on in the recording (you can still spot quite a few 3-piece moments)
Finding and adding the guitar players was a lot easier than I thought, all 3 of them (John Mamone, Kelly Kereliuk and Steve Cochrane) played brilliantly and creatively on their respective songs.
As soon as I have the CD in my hands, and the new website is ready, I’ll be announcing the title of the album and the name of the band.
PS I should add that I’ll still be maintaining this website in addition to the new band website.
