Happy New Year! There are some great projects in the works at Spotlight in 2017. My first session of the year was with none other than the amazing Braves legend, Chipper Jones! Chipper came into the studio to tell his story for his upcoming book/audiobook. He was a pleasure to record.
Over the past few months I’ve been working on some great albums with The Icky Seeds, BiRDPERSON, ConSio, and my man Yogi Barrett. Currently, I’m in the studio with a young talent named Liam Pawlak, and Jerome Flood‘s new group Flood Geight. I start recording with local jamgrass group, Honeywood, later this month.
On the gear front: I’ve recently acquired a fabulous piece of equipment – the BAE 1073d preamp – which means we finally have the famous Neve sound! I love this pre and have been so pleased with it on my latest recordings. I also updated the acoustic treatment in the live room by adding more absorber clouds. Needless to say, 2017 is sounding really great at Spotlight Sound Studio, and we’re looking forward to what the rest of the year has in store.
