I'm privileged to have worked on a whole raft of CD's that either have come out recently, or will come out soon. Some of these include: Gretchen Peters with Tom Russell, "One To The Heart, One To The Head", produced by Gretchen and Tom, and recorded last summer in Austin at Mark Hallman's Congress House Studio (with additional recording in Nashville at Nigel's House Studio). Released early this year. Gretchen's voice has never sounded better on this collection of Western themed covers that begins with my own "North Platte". Nanci Griffith's "The Loving Kind", to be released on June 9. Recorded in early December, we started recording the morning after I got back from Holland. Great songs, great sounds, and Nanci singing at her finest. I've been a fan since of hers since the 80's. Tom Russell's soon to be released "Blood and Candle Smoke". Wow. This one is going to be a classic. We recorded it in February at the famous Wavelab Studios in Tucson (Neko Case, Calexico, Giant Sand....) with an additional song called "Guadaloupe" (maybe Tom's best song) that I produced here in Nashville at David Henry's True Tone Studio. It's one of the most unusual recordings I've ever had the pleasure of working on. Very creative stuff all the way around- songs, sounds, instruments, vocals and most importantly, approach. Can't wait for this one to get out there. Dave Zobl's fine new CD called "And So It Goes", produced by Will Kimbrough. Dave is a Denver based singer-songwriter. I played accordion on it, and a rockin' good time was had by all. Tori Sparks third CD, "The Scorpion in the Story", produced by David Henry at True Tone. I think it's Tori's best album yet, and I loved working with her. Stay tuned for more...
