    Sorry Ted. Had listened to " Joe Hosey" before "Sparks Fly" and it stuck in my head! That's how good your story telling is! Stay awesome.

Q: Hey Ted... Curious, what's your recording setup? Sounds nice and clear...
A: Hi Rich. Most recent tracks are recorded at Third City Sound studio. Very reasonable rates! Used to do many home demos on a 4-track cassette w/ simple Shure vocal mic, but quality's poor.
