Other than driving home from NYC, yesterday was actually a proper day off, and I wake up early today. I'm booked with Mark at SoneLab from 11 but I'm there at 10 importing the vocal and keyboard files f... more >

I drove down to NYC on Friday, dropped Will off in Bushwick, ate at his excellent local cantina, left the car with him (free street parking) and took a cab to the Wall St Andaz hotel (Priceline bargain) where I... more >

This last 10 days has not been easy. But we are getting there. Today was my last day in MA before the NYC sessions at the Magic Shop with Joan and Dave. Also my last chance to record Will.

Yesterday was supposed to be a complete day off, but it wasn't. I had to make rough mixes for a couple of hours in the afternoon and I didn't sleep as well as I would have hoped. This record has pretty ... more >

Stressed out as I have admittedly been the last month or so, most of my distress has been self inflicted by bad budgeting or overly optimisitic scheduling. Until today most of my equipment has worked reasonably... more >

That's right. It's Jan 1st 2013 and we're in the studio for a half day. The deadline is looming. Today Will and I look at Myrtle & Rose - the long ballad. My guitars, so far, are fine but it needs s... more >

My younger son Frank is 14 today. I get up early to make English pancakes (thinner, more like crepes) and sit a while as he opens presents. But I'm exhausted. When he goes to school I go back to bed for an ... more >
