Seth Mumy came in and tracked basics for 6 songs. The songs were cut live, as a three piece. Apart from Seth playing guitar and singing, Bill Wasson playing bass and Jake Hays playing drums completed the band.
Seth intended the last song to be just an acoustic guitar and vocal. He left that for the end of the session, after Jake had to leave. However, after we started recording it became apparent the song would benefit from some brush playing. Ben Burney ( multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/photographer learning the ropes here at the studio ) stepped in to fill the drum throne.
He’s an interesting songwriter and I look forward to working with him in the near future as we expand on this project.
