I've been spending some hours just about every day working on mixing this WatersEdge album. You guys are going to like what you hear! Think of it as a gospel fusion of rock, hip hop, metal (think dissonance and scream vocals), worship, and r&b. The biggest thing people have liked about mixes I've shared with them has been the mixing of these styles, so be prepared! You'll also hear a fair amount of string arrangements, sequencing, extra guitars, and guest vocals courtesy of your friendly neighborhood Sam Day.
I've also been gearing up for playing guitar along with WaterEdge at the annual FCC conference at the end of this month. Special guests are going to include Pastor Mark McGaffin and Brian "Head" Welch. I've got a list of 15 songs to learn before then, and so far I've crunched through five. The nice thing is though, that a good chunk of these songs are by WatersEdge, so I'll already have them in my head from working on this album.
You also may remember me mentioning recording string parts at Dal Segno media not long ago. It was a super productive session....not quite sure when you'll get to hear the results of that, but when you do it'll be worth it.
Also, we've got a sweet Impact concert coming up this friday night at FCF. As always we'll be playing a mix of our favorite covers and several of my originals, which is always cool for me.
So! I'm going to get back to this mix I'm working on. Hope to see a lot of you on friday!
