ALBUMS I've PRODUCED
The records below I've acted as producer, a role that I see as a split between temporary band member / recording engineer / personality manager / co-arranger / feedback giver. It's different every time and I love working with folks who have a singular musical identity, which I believe is true for every album below.
ISAAC GILLESPIE - "Tropical climes"
We recorded the "Tropical Climes" single in my studio, and mixed it with Dan Knobler in Nashville. Isaac is an amazing songwriter and it was a joy to assemble the band for this song and get it to the finish line. Listen HERE.
DANKE - "You're RIght"
Danke AKA Shane Allen & I wrote and recorded "You're Right" together in a single day. I added some additional instruments after Shane went home to LA, brought my bud Josh Hari in to play bass, I laid down some crude live drums to blend with the programmed percussion, and the result is a song I am incredibly psyched on. Listen HERE.
I worked on Renata's most recent LP "Old Ghost" and previous EP "Horizons", and before that she was a member of Landlady. "Old Ghost" was engineered by Jake Aron, who also engineered the Landlady record "The World Is A Loud Place" and I will gladly work on hundreds more albums with him.
This band is a powerhouse of songwriting and sensitivity. They've made many albums since this one and you should dig into all of them, as well as Ian Davis' annual Davis Family Christmas album.
