The first single from Coldplay showed up here not too long ago and to say the least, I’M EXCITED!  I’ve been a fan of Coldplay since I heard “Clocks.”  The last album impressed me with how they changed their sound but kept writing songs that were definitely Coldplay.  This new single felt like they are […]

One of the perks of doing the night shift is that I can come in looks like this… With no one around at this time of night if I wake up right before I have to come in, I can just throw on some clothes and drive here.  That exactly explains tonight.  It’s a nice […]

Last night towards the end of my shift, I got a text from a friend here in town.  He asked me if I would like to take a small road-trip to Houghton today to pick up his car.  I get to drive his car… Yes, I got to drive a 1989 Chevy Camaro.  I’ve never […]

One of the interesting things this morning was learning from Mark how the programming of music works for Sunny.  At first I thought it might be pretty complicated for programming a thousand songs and maybe more for an FM station that plays music 24/7. Really, it was surprisingly easy.  You can plug in songs, and […]

  Even though I’ve lived here for almost five years I’ve never been to the annual Blueberry Festival here in Marquette.  I talked about it a good bit tonight and that fact hit me.  I’ve seen it from far away when I walked downtown in previous years.  It sounds like quite an awesome thing, and […]

Apologies on the really looooooooooooong break.  To say the least I had some things come up (like more projects!) and then I also took a week off. Anyways, back into this little thing. MIXING! My advice is to read this link on what exactly mixing entails.  It’s kind of the most not glamorous part of […]

For this post we get to record what most people focus on when they listen to a recording…. Vocals! We had about a month between the guitars and the vocals because I had to find time off from work to get over to the Houghton area.  In that time Matt had moved to his father’s […]

In this week’s post, we get to the next step, which is guitars…and has a ton more pictures! After the drums were put down, we waited a few weeks until I got a few days off on a weekend and I came back up to Houghton for the guitars and some bass to be put […]

The first thing to any album, was discussion with the band (in this case, my friend Matt.)  What’s to discuss?  The general sound of the album and mainly how we were going to actually go about recording. The first thing we needed were, obviously, drums. Luckily things fell easily on the planning end and on […]

Not all music is made in a multi-million dollar studio.  In fact, I’d be willing to bet that most music made today is made in bedrooms, basements, kitchens, closets, barns, and bathrooms. As some might say, “No budget, no problem” My love is recording.  I will tell you that, and sometimes unfortunately for two morning hosts […]
