This week Kat Mills will be doing some background vocals and then we have more production work to do. Then its on to The Clearwater Festival this weekend. I will be by the Hudson Stage all weekend, so if your there, come by to say howdy.
My thanks to all the folks at The Floyd County Store in having me. I played along with Kat Mill. Check out Kat Mills a very cool songwriter with a beautiful voice! She will be doing some vocals for me on my next CD.
We now have some final mix-downs on some songs and then add some female vocals and then its on to the last song, What Would Jesus Drive? Bit by bit, we're getting there folks!
We now according to the engineer are 90% there for the CD project to get to mastering. All told we have about 23-24 songs that will be in the can. So we have to decide, do we put out a double CD or put out 2 different CD’s. I am more prone to put out one at a time because of cost and PR. So we are getting there and I look forward to having this one of the streets.
Next week I go back to the studio to lay down some bass to two tracks and then its on to, What Would Jesus Drive? tune. Hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather. Still Pickin' Bill Hudson
Ok, so far we now have 17 different tracks down in the can. This summer we will record one more tune, What Would Jesus Drive. Then it on to mix-downs and mastering. Here is hoping everyone out there has a safe spring and summer. Still Pickin' Bill Hudson
Now its back to work and trying to finish some tracks: Hope in the Heart What would Jesus Drive? Train Town Then its on to mastering..... Here is hoping everyone out there is having a warm spring, its been a long winter. Still Pickin' Bill Hudson
Looking forward to this night of Pete Seeger's music. I will be doing two tunes that night: Stagolee- a traditional blues tune that came from St. Louis and a true story. Pete was always showing me folks tunes that sounded somehow fresh, not old. Sailing Down my Golden River- This song that Pete wrote sounds like almost a pray in a way. Back in the 70's Pete had this boat built around Woodstock, he called the boat, Woody Guthrie. It was built right next to the wood shop. I use to have some photos of it back then. Pete use to love to sail that boat down the river bare feet and all and that big grin on his face. Happy as as pig in mud. I like to think he wrote while siting in that boat surrounded by the sounds of water.
Here is a story on our gig this weekend. We look forward to be doing this one. http://www.newstimes.com/news/article/Hudson-carries-on-Pete-Seeger-s-mission-5390800.php
