Album Update 2022 03 02!

Hi All!

There's been a little bit of a whirlwind of things to do lately, and so it's been a while since I've posted here, but I wanted to drop in for a quick update. In my last post, I talked a little about recording this new record in New York and in Nashville, and some of the backstory and also mentioned some of the musicians who joined in for the recording sessions. I've since gone back to Nashville and had Marie Lewey and Cindy Walker add backup vocals to several of the tracks. Cindy and Marie a/k/a "The Shoals Sisters," are incomparable vocalists who have performed on recordings for Gregg Allman, Steven Tyler, Nuno Bettencourt, The Commodores, Ricky Skaggs, Faith Hill, Etta James, George Jones, Randy Travis, Kenny Chesney, Shania Twain... the list goes on. I first met them in Nashville in 2016, when they joined in on the recording sessions for my second album, "Through These Waves." It was an honor to work with them again and I just can't wait for you to hear what they do on this new record! Working with Engineer Dylan Alldredge of Skinny Elephant Recording, both while I was back in Nashville, as well as remotely after I returned home to New York, we completed the final mixes of all of the tracks and sent them off to Jim DeMain for mastering at Yes Master Studio in Nashville. While working remotely with Jim to finalize the master recordings, I've also been working on the Album Art, with Colorado Artist/Graphic Artist, Anna Berman. I'm excited with the progress we’re making and expect to take a giant leap forward towards completion, this coming weekend! I've also been talking with some venues about playing some local shows, while I'm hunkered down here in NY, keeping the album moving forward toward release. Until then, stay safe and be well and continue to check back here from time to time, for updates! All the best, Bill S.
