There's a CD in my present.

A boatload of copies of my CD One Layer Down are here at my house, and I am soldering the joins to make it available to anyone who wants it. I am stupid proud of this disc.

My website (wescollins.com) should be up and running soon.

Hey Dan!
Howzabout we finish up that interrupted lunch?

That fast

I put down the "real" guitar parts for all eleven songs at Chris Rosser's Hollow Reed Arts Studio this weekend. Scott Dameron added guitar groove to two songs (and general upbeat vibe to the whole weekend). Chris then wrote and played bass parts on five of the songs. I'm asighted y'all. It is happening.

There is a CD in my future. Near future, I hope.

Despite my best efforts to procrastinate, my family has conspired to MAKE me get serious about recording a CD. So:

Y’all, I am recording a CD, or something. I am.

I spent the last couple of days working with Chris Rosser and River Guerguerian at Hollow Reed Arts Recording Studios in Asheville, NC. Chris and I recorded rough guides for eight songs on Friday, charted them on Saturday, and River nailed drum tracks for all eight on Sunday.

I go back to record "keeper" guitar tracks (with some special guests) and vocals weekend after next. No time to overthink (my achilles elbow).

If I don’t choke, it's going to be very good. Chris and River have set the ball up on a tee and handed me a twenty-pound bat.
