Last night the band got together and listened to mixes of some of our favorite cds. The intent was to listen to mixes of other bands to see what can guide how we mix and ultimately inspire our approach to mixing.

Cds included some of my favorites including Bob Schneider and The Ugly Americans, Cry Of Love, Edwin McCain, Black Crowes, and a couple of others. The other guys brought in Tom Petty, and John Mellencamp.

It was definitely a good experiment. We were able to quickly identify what we liked and how we could apply to our music. Mike V and I spent the remainer of the evening mixing Kiss Me Goodbye and approaching with how do we add emphasis to the different sections of the song, and attempting to keep it interesting but not over the top. After a couple of hours I can confidently say we have our best mix to date.

We should finish up mixing of our first three tracks in the next couple of weeks and I'll be posting at least one of them on the site. The others you'll have to come to our shows to get.

Did I mention Smiths Olde Bar called. We are booked for Monday September 27.
