Finishing Touches

April 5th, 2014 Comments off

It has been about 4 months since we started making the new Due North record at Drifting Sun Sound. The nasty winter slowed us down more than I care to think about, but we worked as often as we could, and put in a lot of effort. We could have taken shortcuts and used crutches like AutoTune, but that is not the kind of record any of us wanted to make.

Tonight, we put what may be the finishing touches on the best project I have ever been a part of. I really hope a lot of people hear this album. The song writing is great and the nerves touched are raw. But even if nobody but us cares, I am proud of my friends Eric, Roger Jordan and Jordan, and honored to be a part of making their artwork come to fruition.

The album will be called Saving Daylight and the current track list is as follows:

  1. Something Dark
  2. Porcelain
  3. All You Know
  4. Two Strikes
  5. Through the Night
  6. Goodbye To All That
  7. Don’t Be Afraid
  8. Empty Hands
  9. Fairweather
  10. As the Mercury Falls
  11. Everything I’m Not
  12. If I Fall Asleep

We have been busy recording basic tracks for the new Due North record. Drum tracking is finished, guitars and percussion tracks are well underway, with the occasional vocal. Most of the vocals are likely to be scratch tracks at this point, but you never know, we may save a few gems.

Eric and the Jordans came by and we knocked out the drum tracks for most of the album.

Eric and Jordan Wright took turns playing bass and guitar along with Jordan VonZynda’s drumming in order to help capture some live energy, but we plan on replacing the scratch guitar tracks after all of the drum-work is done.

Due North

March 5th, 2012 Comments off

Due North have begun recording a new album at Drifting Sun.  We set up drums on Sunday (thanks in large part to Doobie Bros. Stage Manager/Drum Tech, Tyler Habrecht) and got some killer drum sounds in my living room.

The new house with its vaulted ceiling sounds great!

We finished drum tracks for six songs on Sunday (sorry new neighbors), and we plan on finishing four more on Tuesday in order to do a ten song album.
