Slack Key, Ukulele, and a Shaker: Album 2

October 19, 2006 · Print This Article

I’ve begun work on my second album, which is due out in early 2007. The new album features ukulele, guitar, bass (and a shaker. . .) so far. Hopefully, I’ll be adding some trumpet and a steel guitar with the help of some friends. The expanded instrumentation is very exciting, especially since the first album was exclusively guitar.

The recording process has been challenging at times. I’m recording in my New York apartment, which comes complete with car horns, slamming doors, people talking in the hallways, refrigerator noise and every other possible city sound. But, I’m reminded that it’s the music that counts, and the creative process has been very fun thus far.

I’ve recorded a few slack key songs, some ukulele music, and some guitar-centered pieces. I hope this project adds some joy to people’s lives.


Got something to say?
