Making a New Album: Day Three

We woke up to a bright sunny day, inviting us to just go out, run along the Hudson River and enjoy the sun all day long. But that thought only stuck with us for a brief moment, because it was going to be our last day at Studio G - and we were all looking forward to making the most of it.

When creating a song, it’s essential to record all individual instruments as good and as accurate as possible. By doing so, every song receives a list of tracks. It’s such a rewarding feeling to witness these tracks not just pile up but actually line up and come together nicely. You just feel that something good is bound to happen - which is what we experienced today.

To record «Beggars and Thieves», we stayed out of the recording booths. Instead, we played and recorded in the control room. Them speakers in there are so good, it just helps free the creative process as opposed to doing it all with headphones.

Playing my 5th Avenue guitar in a room full of passionate musicians made for an unforgettable experience. It’s like something’s in the air, and everyone’s on the edge of their seat, knowing a key moment is about to happen. This is when the «magic» happens - this is when an idea turns into an actual song.

And then the sun went down and it was time to pack up and head to our next adventure - the Strange Weather Recording Studio. It wasn’t far, so we unloaded, took a quick look at the beautiful space and sat down for a chat before calling it a day.

The past days at Studio G have been uber productive and inspiring - and now we’re looking forward to continue with the same drive at Strange Weather Recording Studio.
