everything counts….

here i am ..ill with the flu….but i just finished a recording session with a local gospel n R n B singer mike ables….he graciously wrote the lyrics and allowed me to add it to the upcoming album….the track is a little bit of a departure for the band…..but then….everything counts is our motto….mike sings in a classic r n b style…deep tenor….very soulful….the music is a r n b/rock/blues mutation……i had no idea how it would turn out….the verses have a distinct contemporary soul drum beat and bass line..with added reverse guitars and octave guitar riffs…the chorus sections then add metal like guitar riffs and funky bassline….mike navigates the changes quite nicely….the guitar solos are in the blues and rock arena stylistically with the rhythm guitars playing syncopated metal like figures and the bass line playing funky lines but much freer and loose…..mike ends the track with some really kool and soulful gospel vocal ad libs….i really like the track…its a fusion of soul/rock and blues with contemporary beats…..i was hesitant at first thinking it would not jibe into the over all feel and concept of the album…but hey i changed my mind…..so far the vocal tracks encompass david bowie like stylings, a red hot chili peppers rocker, and alt-rock/r n b rocker, a contemporary rocker, an inxs type alt-rock/acoustic romp..and finally this last track with mike ables..the other tracks are instrumental jam tracks..three in total…..that brings the total music to over 50 minutes…..time to prepare for upload to itunes and other download sites…..the countdown is on…one…two..three………….

    Mike really does bring a nice finishing touch to this project. I can’t wait to hear the whole album put together as a finished product. It’s been a wild ride. Best of luck in all you do.

    I really can’t wait to hear the entire project in one listening. Thanks for letting me be a part of it!
