Well been pretty busy recording Dan Bryans new cd. I’m laying down the drum tracks and keys, and Todd Lathrop is hitting the bass tracks and keys. We are splitting duties producing, engineering, etc.. I am a decent drummer once things get quantized. In todays recording market, who isn’t being edited. The one thing we haven’t done is use the Britney Spears magic machine on the vocals that Dan is tracking. I think it’s a crutch, and he’s got a pretty damn good voice to begin with. Dan is also tracking all the guitars on his cd and doing great. We are two songs in and have quite a few to go. Looking forward to tracking more this weekend, we are bringing in Amber Miller to add some backups on song 2. Look for clips over at RisingSunSound.com in the future once the cd is finished...Read More

I present to you in jest the following:
If I never see or hear the following again, I’ll be a happy man:
1. “Can’t really invest in this band, after Nashville, well you know….”
2. I refuse to play in another band that must be named after a single member of said band. I’ve never thought so much of myself that I said, hey, I am so great we should call us “me”. Lots of gigs will roll in. Not to mention all the recognition I will get…..
3. If you say you want to invest in the bands gear, start with your own, then after getting gig worthy gear, spend on the frills.
4. If you buy new gear, buy gear better than you already own, can’t understand spending money to downgrade, but that’s just my opinion…..

Over the next month I’ll be reworking my site to better reflect my music endeavors. I want to separate my personal music projects from those projects recorded for others. Look for a link to my upcoming Rising Sun Sound project studio site, there I will be posting links to songs recorded for other musicians.
On a side note, I want to thank my bandmates. Richard Haynes and Todd Lathrop. I couldn’t ask for two better friends and musicians to share my passion for music. Starting in January we will start recording some of our covers now that we have a complete mobile recording setup for our practice space. Those songs will be posted up on RattleBonesBand.com. Our website for the band. My apologies to those that had already visited the site with our media page in test mode...Read More
