I have some very exiting news to share with you all… My EP is almost ready to be mastered!
For those of you who haven’t heard, I’m releasing an EP called Catalyst in mid-May. There are six songs on it, all written by me. It’s been a lot of work to put together, and I’m really excited about it! I can’t wait for you all to hear it.
I have had the privilege of working with some amazing musicians to record and produce all the songs on the EP.
My co-producer, Elyse Simpson, has been brilliant–supportive, critical, helpful, and creative in equal measure. She is a comfort to have in the mixing booth. I love her to bits and I can’t thank her enough for her help!
My drummer, Mike Rajna, is unreal. He’s so creative and talented, and he brought some really cool ideas to each of the tracks. Mike agreed to play on this EP for me two years ago when the idea for this album was born; and it makes me so happy that he is a part of this!
Tom Altobelli, my bassist, just killed it in the best possible sense. He played the upright and the electric bass… He even played bowed bass for my ballad “Here We Go Again”–and it makes me so happy whenever I hear it!
My guitarist, Dan Mariani, played some great solos. His tone was exactly what I wanted for those song, and it just really fits well!
My trumpet player, Mark Thomson, did a fantastic job playing on my tune “Unfamiliar Territory”. Even though, as he points out, he only plays for a total of thirty seconds, it is a great solo. I’m so happy he was able to join the band for the recording of this tune.
My entire band made this whole experience so fantastic, I can’t thank them enough for the time and effort they put in. They have been very patient with me and my countless emails. I can’t wait to play with them live!
I also want to say a big thank you to Justin, our sound engineer. He’s done a great job so far. There’s still a little work to be done on our final mixes and we need to master the tunes. I can’t wait to go back into the studio next week to finish it up!
Stay tuned! There’s a lot more EP news to come!
