Hey Ross, great to have you here. Can you talk a bit about tracking Laurel Lane? Instruments, mics, processing and so on. It's a fantastic sounding record.

thanks .. again a record that not enough people have heard
I love this record
the song Claim To Fame is a mission statement
another real labor of love
Damon is the real deal artist
We tracked the rhythm beds at the Sunset Sound Factory
and then took the tracks back up to San Luis Obispo where Damon has his Laurel Lane studio/rehearsal room
and recorded the rest of the record there
except the vocals which we did in my studio
there are a lot of ribbon mics on the record
Royers of course and Coles and my RCA
also vintage amps like my tweed Vibrolux and my Gibson GA 6
also my Tweed Twin and Magnatone
Kristian the keyboard player has a great B3 and Leslie
and we put the Wurli, Clave and Rhodes through amps, old style
I wanted a warm old school neo soul sound with the bottom end pumping
the horns were done with all Ribbon mics too ..
I really like how this record ended up
I mixed it in my studio the way I've basically been working for 10 years
in ever evolving hybrid style
