The Needle EP update.

Tracking is done. I just received word that all the instrumental tracks are finished! Woohoo. What a process. I have heard a very rough reference mix of all the tracks except for one. I must say that I am so impressed. Suzanne will be prepping in the next two weeks to begin vocals. We are not ready to offer up a release date but I feel strongly that October seems like a good month. Don’t forget to check back as I will be posting versions of the song and then we will be releasing the album for free download online as soon as it’s ready. Thanks for checking in.

“Enemy” reference mix

So we are making progress in the studio and are about a week away from tracking vocals, which we all know is what it’s all about!  So here is one of our favorite tracks on the CD, “Enemy.”  This song was written by Suzanne and is a really cool song.  Here you can take a listen to our latest reference mix.  There are no vocals but the instrumentation is pretty much done, some minor clean up here and there.

More reference tracks coming soon.

Hope you enjoy.  Thoughts?  Ideas?  Leave a comment!

Ian and Chris working out some guitars in the Studio

Here are a few clips of Ian and Chris working out some guitar parts/effects in the studio the other night. They are working on the track, “Slide.”

Things get a little crazy as Ian plays and Chris operates the effects pedal.

Here are a couple of clips of Suzanne, Chris and I recording some piano tracks for the Needle EP.  We spent a good while prepping the piano and trying to eliminate a crazy buzz in the sound board.  Enjoy.

Updates and a few Concert Dates

Hey gang. So the CD is still going great. I have some nice video I hope to be posting this weekend. Chris moved his studio into our house and we recorded piano tracks from our 1929 Fischer Grand. They sound awesome. Deep, round, warm piano sounds. We recorded tracks for Cover, Carry and Suzanne’s haunting ballad, “Made for Five.” I know you will enjoy these songs.

We have a few dates coming up. On August 4th we will be playing for the great kids over at Antioch Church outside of Watkinsville. We had a great time playing for them last year. Super kids. Then on August 18th, we will be playing on live TV on the Atlanta Live program. We played this last fall and it was a blast. We will post video after the show. There are a couple of Tasty World dates in the making as well. We will let you know.

Still moving forward……

Just a quick update. The studio session went great and now we are on a short scheduling hold. The tracks are being sent to Nashville for some beat detective / drum edit work. Until then, the band is sitting tight, practicing, waiting for the tracks to come back. It will be early July before they hit the studio again. In the meantime, I will be putting together a few more interviews, hopefully with the producer Chris Combs and other band members, myself included. I’m not sure how interviewing myself will go, but I’m sure it will be interesting!

Keep checking in!

scarlet|snow in the Studio Making the Needle

Last weekend, scarlet|snow spent a couple days in the studio laying down drums, bass and rhythm guitars.  Here is a quick little video of some of the moments in the studio.  The track in the background is a new song off of the upcoming EP entitled, “Everybody’s Got A Broken Heart.”  We took the vocal tracks out just because we don’t want to give the whole thing away too quickly!!!  Enjoy.
