So we have pretty much wrapped up our first album. Well the recording process is done.. now on to the mastering, production, legal, promotion, blah blah ... Is it all really worth it? Meh... Its pretty fun so who cares. Hopefully others enjoy it, but in the end if we haven't had a blast doing it then its time to move on I guess. Ok I have rambled on enough... Im going to go move some volumes up and down.... Nathan
First... a big thank you to all the fans that came down to support us! There was quite a turnout (Jason's Grandma came out for heck's sakes)!!. It was a great show, we all had a blast, had some great pizza, and saw Dustin Bentall and his crew jam some decent country/folk songs. His fiddle player owned that show imo. She shreds!
Hopefully we can get down to some recording soon so you all can hear the plethora of new music we have been writing. It is much different than the stuff on our site.
until next time... Nathan
We have had the opportunity to do a couple short sets at The Slice in Lethbridge this month. What a blast. We have had some great response and nice fan turnout. Hopefully we can get a full show sometime in the near future. We've been able to debut mostly new songs with an oldie thrown in for good measure. We hope to see some of you out there soon!
We got to get in the studio and start putting some new tracks down with Tony. Can't wait. We have such a different sound that most of you have not heard yet. Am really stoked. Anyway... most of the previous wordage was to just fill in the out of date Blog dilemma. Until next time... Nathan
Oh don't get me wrong. Summer rocks. But it's also busy. Everyone has things to do and places to go... which in turn takes us all away from jammin'. We have gotten together a couple times to jam and there are several new great songs to get pumped up about. As soon as things start to settle down it will be time to record again and do some live shows. Well, back to the beach y'all!! Nathan
Well Seven Shades has evolved into a full band now. With the addition of Tony as drummer the energy in the band has gone up a level or so to say the least... in a very good way. I'm stoked to get some tracks down for new and old songs with a proper drum sound.
Had a great time playing the "battle of the bands". THE best show we have ever put on for sure. Not a winning show but really couldn't care less, was way to much fun.
Well if you can get a chance to come down and see Tony bustin chops on the kit please do so. until next time... Nathan
It seems, recording an album if the band works elsewhere full time, could push an album to take forever to record. not sure how some of those bands pull it off in a few days. Maybe we try to hard? Meh... Not much hurry anyway really. Anywho, hopefully we can have it done by spring and have it available for those that will wish to partake. I find myself putting aside the important tasks I have to tweak and improve some of the songs we are working on. Holy shit I just wrote a paragraph on our blog. Hahaha... Blog... what a stupid word. Nate.
