Today we cut Jeff Skiba's vocal on 'Burn With My Fire'. The session went really well for a number of reasons. First and foremost, was that Jeff came in very prepared. He had done his homework, and he sang with confidence. Second, I found that limiting his voice with the Manley compressor really made him sound full and rich. This combination made for a very good sounding vocal. Now this track goes off to Steve Palousek for the steel treatment. We tossed around the idea of having a fiddle play on it too, so I might have to call Rodgers Cochran.

Tonight I was supposed to go to a rehearsal with Steve Christensen to hear a prospective client's material, but alas, said client had bandmembers who couldn't make it, so I'm going home early. Although I was really looking forward to doing the preproduction with Steve, it is his birthday tomorrow, so he can go have some fun.

More vocals on Thursday, and I have to start getting ready to do some guitar playing soon.

On the horizon: Mixing an R&B tune for Melanie Covington, and perhaps yet another, (in the endless string of very talented and gracious....), female singer-songwriter.
