Welcome to a new type of post I hope to do at least somewhat regularly, where I give the lowdown on sessions happening around the Bluff City. Maybe we’ll do it once a week, maybe once a month, or maybe whenever I get around to it (the most likely scenario).
- Oklahoma City artists Matt Stansberry and The Romance return to Memphis to record this month at Ardent with Curry Weber and Ples Hampton. Stansberry’s previous release was cut at Sun.
- There’s been a lot going on over at Electraphonic. Memphis singer-songwriter Mark Edgar Stuart has recently been cutting new tracks for an upcoming release, with musicians Landon Moore, John Argroves, John Whittemore, and Al Gamble (St. Paul & The Broken Bones).
- I’ve been working a lot in Electraphonic myself lately. This week we start mixing my forthcoming record, produced by Will Sexton and engineered by Scott Bomar. We cut it on Scott’s Scully 8-track and are mixing to 1/4″.
- Next week, Scott and I resume tracking and mixing the next James & The Ultrasounds LP for Madjack Records, the followup to their Madjack debut, Bad to be Here. This project is my first time in the producer’s chair.
