One night, the spring of 2014, five guys played some good music in Sonic Planet Studios, Pittsburgh PA. I decided to set up a room mic (Rode NT1a) , guitar mic (Shure 58 Beta) and hit record. I eventually went back to have a listen and the moment was there. Big-brash-rock and roll drums that I couldn’t really EQ, tasty and free flowing slide guitar, mando licks and lockdown piano. A great sonic canvas for songs I wrote last year. It was a different interpretation of each of the songs but it worked this night. It certainly wasn’t a perfect performance by any means but the emotive appeal supersedes the perfect mistakes. Download and drag these songs into your iTunes Library. I mean……they’re free.
Sealed In Wax,
Just finished cleaning up this performance from the Shelburne Festival, in Vermont. This version of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly was recorded in the 1960’s.
Performers: Herb Kenyon – tenor (my Grandfather), Beverly Kenyon – Piano (my Grandmother) and family friend Terry Trahan – soprano.
Does my heart good to see these fine folks receive their vinyl gift. I am so appreciative of their support and how they all dug in to help me realize my dream. It’s pretty cool to hear your music on vinyl and even cooler to see other people enjoy it.
Thank you thank you thank you!!
