Peter and I went back in the studio to record this new version of "Be Still My Heart" for his new release, The Mighty Storm.
It's been a while since I've updated, so here are some highlights of 2013:
I spent a good part of the year producing records for some fantastic artists.
Amy Black, This is Home.
Robby Hecht, self-titled.
The Westies, Hell's Kitchen
Anders Elfstrom - This is a video from the first record that we recorded together back in 2009. Anders came back to Nashville from Stockholm a second time to record another record. Spring time release for this as well.
When I wasn't producing I got to play on some great records. Here's a few:
Bruce Robison and Kelly Willis, Cheater's Game. I played bass on this record, which was nominated for Album of the Year by the Americana Music Association.
Mindy Smith, Snowed In. Mandola, bouzouki and tenor guitar.
Rod Picott, Hang Your Hopes On A Crooked Nail. Bouzouki, mandolin, tenor guitar and various other stringy things.
Steve Moakler, Wide Open. Bass.
Sundy Best, Bring Up The Sun. Bass, bouzouki, banjo and mandolin.
Caitlin Rose, The Stand-In. Acoustic guitar.
Here's the title track to the forthcoming Peter Bradley Adams record. The footage is from the recording sessions at historic RCA Studio A in Nashville. I worked as co-producer, bassist and played acoustic guitar on this track. This was one of my favorite collaborations of the year. Hope you enjoy.
I mixed and made some noise on this. These two have some magic going on for sure.
