Ven Aqui 1.0

A bit of a production experiment; rather than use a click track + programmed drums, I used a click-free guitar track as the bed, and layered performed keyboard drums on top. A slightly trickier process but thought it would result in more authentic feel/better pocket etc. An instrumental demo track based off Milton Nascimento's "Cravo e Canela". Recorded in the fall of 2015 in Rosebud, AB.

Angeline the Baker

Improvised acoustic guitar / singing. Recorded on phone. A bluegrass standard, but I'm playing it as a stream of consciousness improvisation. Usually these days my playing is pretty much by the book, but here I was thinking about ecstatic / outside players like John Fahey and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. No patching in. Only one take. No overdubbing. Get it right in the moment. Be real and accept flaws as long as they don't spoil anything important. [more inside]
