Phil & I have been working on this album since the Summer of 2013. We started brainstorming ideas and developing arrangements for an August 2014 recording session. We spent an incredible week at Dimension Sound Studios capturing phenomenal performances by an amazing group of musicians: Along with Phil leading on voice & guitar, we had two Rhythm Sections (Raky Sastri with Tony Leva, and Ariel Bernstein with Derek VanWormer), a String Trio (Valerie Thompson, Rachel Panitch, Abigail Reisman), a Horn Section (Danny Fratina, Rick Stone, Randy Pingrey & Kathy Olson) along with French Horn (Anne Howarth), Clarinet (Anna Patton), Piano (Brian Eyberg), Mandolin & Banjo (Colin Forhan), and Josh Mamaclay (Uke & Vocals).
It’s a brilliant record. Check it out:
