Pre-Production

Pre-Production is what we’ve been doing for the last two days with our new producer Greg Collins. All this basically means is that we have a rented rehearsal space with some time to get the songs we are going to record to a place where we are actually ready to record them. Out of the six songs we are recording with Greg we haven’t really had a chance to play any of them live. In fact, we haven’t really played most of them at all until this past Friday! This is actually a good thing. It keeps the songs really fresh and exciting while we are working on them.

We have Sunday off, then we’re in the studio from Monday until the 22nd of December. It will be a long haul but we have some great songs and I can’t wait for you to hear them!

Oh yeah, we just found out yesterday that our producer Greg Collins has been nominated for two Grammies! Both nominations are in the same category: best album of the year for U2 and Gwen Stefani. Greg is from LA and has had some great experiences and worked with many great artists. We are truly blessed to be able to work with him. Here are a few pics from the last couple of days.
