Last weeks CD recording schedule had achieved much more than I anticipated and for that I’m very, very grateful.
All of the vocal tracks were completed last Wednesday at Red Brick Music and on the Thursday at Chapel Lane Studios, Stig Lindell put down keyboards on 7 of the 15 tracks.
He went back to Sweden on Monday however, he has suggested that I send the remaining tracks over for him to finish off.
I want to publicly say a big THANK YOU to Stig for his time and dedication to my CD Project. The tracks sound absolutely superb and the whole process has inspired me in ways that I can’t adequately express in words.
Here are some pictures I took of the sessions at Chapel Lane Studios last week…

Gabe (The Engineer) = Lightning Fast!
I can safely say that in regards to the recording part of the CD Project, I’m now on the home stretch.
Darren and I have to finish off the electric guitar tracks plus backing vocals, some percussion and miscellaneous production tweaks need to be completed before the mixdown and mastering of all the tracks take place.
Then the fun starts…
Artwork, printing, CD duplication, promotion, CD launch organisation and everything else in between. I’ve got to start making a list.
