Shakira, Rick Rubin, Fijacion Oral Vol 1

Hey again Kevin.

As a fan of Shakira, especially her pre 2001 all-Spanish music, I am of the opinion that she writes and sings more musically and more lyrically in her native tongue than she does in English. After all, Spanish as a more sensual and musical language.

Your discography shows engineering credit on Fijacion Oral, Volumen Uno, an all-Spanish project (yay!) I greatly prefer the material on this CD to Volume 2, the english sequel, and the ensuing "Hip Don't Lie" mega-hit

What was your role on these releases, and did you work directly with Rick Rubin or Shakira?

Drew,

I worked on tracks that were intended for both projects simultaneously up at the Warehouse studios in Vancouver. Shakira was there pretty much full time and is a very commited and driven artist. I never got to meet Rick Rubin as his role was that of executive producer.

I was the tracking engineer along with a few other enginners.

Thank you Kevin!

We have seen her live a couple times, and what a show she and her awesome band put on!

Cheers!
