Thanks for dropping by.
Looking for some well produced, professional sounding sounds for yer mp3 player?..... this is probably not the right place. What you'll find here is single mic practice recordings, and some 2 & 4 track demos. The recording quality is below low-fi.
If your still reading this, thanks. What follows will eventually be a digital record of some things I've written over the years as well as things that I'm currently working on. Hoping on adding something new(or old) every couple of weeks, so keep checking back if you like what you hear.
The older stuff is from houston and austin bands I was a part of or am still part of....These were great projects and many of these guys and gals are still playing. They're listed in the blogs section where I'll post some other links too.
As for recent songs, as an idea takes shape, I hope to post it in various evolving renditions until ultimately, I'm satisfied or tired of it....
Current recordings are made with a slow computer, an SM57 mic, a XENYX 502 mixer, Audacity freeware, and of course...instruments. Add a tbsp of hum, a dash of hiss, a dollop of background noise and voila, the demo is tracked..
If you find one of 'em catches your fancy, and you'd like to record it in your high tech digital studio for worldwide release, I'm sure we can work something out.
