Came back home for a few days and did a great session with local Memphis singer/songwriter, Kait Lawson for an upcoming record…had a ball. This young lady has a bright future ahead and can definitely hold her own as a powerful voice. The songs were good, too! Two masterful cats joined me in the studio, my pal Steve Selvidge (The Hold Steady) on multiple guitars & the great Sam Shoup on upright and electric bass. I felt so lucky to have finally gotten the chance to record with these guys. What a treat. Anyhow, keep your eyes peeled for this one.
I tried a bit of muting and muffling this time, which yielded some nice results. A bandanna over the snare gave it really dry and punchy tone. The producer loved it.
This trip home has been productive, fun and pretty relaxing. Back to LA in the a.m.
