From Chi McClean's blog post... Sessions at OTR with Chi, Brain and Jon Evans. Incredible!
In The Studio
Woah! These past few days have been a whirlwind…. Starting on Monday, September 27th, I have been working on my new record down at OTR Studios with producer/engineer Cookie Marenco, percussionist Brain, and bassist Jon Evans.
It’s been an incredible experience to spend some time with these guys and work out parts, new arrangements, and an overall sound for the record. Every one of them has contributed heaps to the entire process and it’s just amazing to see and hear it all come together so quickly.
Last night was pretty special. I honestly could have sworn that, for a few moments, I had John Henry Bonham and John Paul Jones in the tracking room for “Life Got In The Way” and “I Save You”. Chills… really! Talk about locking it down… BAM.
Today is our last day of tracking at OTR Studios and while we still have a bunch to do, it’s amazing to see how much ground we’ve already covered. Today is also my birthday, coincidentally, and I really can’t think of a better way to kick off another year than with these guys making music.
Stay tuned here for more updates as the recording develops and keep your eyes peeled for some new material soon! It’s gonna be awesome…
