Butch,

Could you describe your role as executive producer for this album (as opposed to just a regular producer)?

This is a great production! The songwriting is far superior IMO to their last CD, the engineering is amazing, and CLA really moves the songs forward with his use of dynamics. Great job!!!

I decided to work with them in an exec role because I knew they have a lot of studio smarts, and didn't need a day to day person in the room with them. They wanted to record the album at their rehearsal space in Phoenix. Chris Testa is the engineer and co-producer...he was there making sure everything sounded amazing and helping with day to day decisions. Chris also help set up their studio before we started recording. As for my role, initially I gave them a lot of feedback on the song arrangements, then went out for the first week of tracking, and would fly in for 3 or 4 days at a time when they needed help. We ended up mixing here in LA with CLA.
I think the album is great, really hooky songs, and sonically the best they've recorded.
Hats off to Chris!!!

Hey John!

Yes, you had some very much needed inspiration and contributions on several of the songs at the last minute! Good to see you on Gearslutz!

And congrats on some of the recent records you've done! I've been keeping tabs on you!!!
