D.B. Rielly’s latest live record is getting airplay and good press!!!

A while back I recorded another live show for the amazing singer songwriter (and far too infrequent bandmate) D.B. Rielly.

Live From Chester Connecticut is getting national (and I think international) airplay and some really good press! For example:

 

“D.B. RIELLY IS DAMNED FINE. SOMEDAY THE REST OF THE ROOTS WORLD IS GOING TO FIGURE IT OUT FOR THEMSELVES. UNTIL THEN, TRUST ME: SEEK OUT LIVE FROM CHESTER.”

– Donald Teplyske, Fervor Coulee

Finally ran cat6 cable to the studio (I thought my days with a crimp tool were over)!

“Big whoop?” you say?  Big Whoop indeed! Because the SSL Nucleus doesn’t play well when it’s connected to a mac getting it’s IP address over WiFi.  Don’t ask, it was months of maddening back and forth.  But… now it’s working like a charm! (and the near gigabit up and down speeds don’t hurt either.

Nick Hornby likes it… so… there’s that.

Super proud to have played some small part in the creation of this record.

I recorded a few vocals at Seaside Lounge and did some “pre-mastering” at The Whelping Box.  Perry and I both think it came out great… and so does Nick Hornby!

“Magnificent. I love every song, words and music. I’m happy to think that my book has somehow produced work this good. It works completely on its own terms, and sounds complete in a way that very few albums do anymore.”

Mastering…

I’m working on a mastering project today. Did a little more fine tuning of the room and I think I’ve got that 50(ish)hz null under control.  Anyway…

It’s a friend… It’s a secret… It’s his best work.

More later.

Here is a image of a compressor plug-in meant to convey the idea of mastering.
