Day 3 of the recording. It has been a whirlwind. Wrote a song called “Goosebumps” with Shawn, Chuck, and Todd……a fun tune……and then on Thursday finished the lyrics on “Starin” My Demons Down” with Danny Tate…….we recorded it that night. Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo, etc) played drums……first time i’ve played with him. You can hear the unmixed version of “Starin’ My Demons Down” below prior to the live stream of tonight’s session.
Yesterday, Mike Esser and I were pretty wrecked after working from 12pm to 5am…….so, we just mixed and recorded Scotty Huff on high harmonies on “Starin’ My Demons Down”…….he killed it.
At 6pm tonight I’ll start live streaming………John Hobbs is coming in to play piano on “Some Comfort” and “Treacherous Words”……John plays piano with Vince Gill, and has produced his last couple of records…….also played on most of the Martina McBride records. Wonderful dude, and amazing player.
“Some Comfort” is an important song to me. Yesterday, I played it for him and we discussed how to record it……he plinked around on the piano, and it was stunning. I can’t wait.
So, join us tonight in the studio….see details below. Please think about pre-ordering the cd…..this stuff is expensive. Most nights about 800 folks tune into a “live stream”……..if everyone tipped $10……..that would go a long way toward paying for this record. If you pre-order your cd that is even better, but tipping is great! Tonight, you will literally be taken into a pretty private session, and will hear everything that we are discussing over the talkback. If you went to a bar and saw a band that you liked…..you might tip them? So, think of it in that context, and join us tonight…….you don’t HAVE to tip, but it would help! Ok, enough of that……….directions on how to tune in below.
You can always watch, but if you want to “chat” via the chatroom, then I think you will need to create a profile with Ustream.tv……which takes about 5 minutes. Some of the most fun is had in the chat room while the broadcast is going on………you can find me show at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/kevin-montgomery-s-50-states-in-50-days If you’d like to tip (all monies applied to recording the new record and anything $25 will be seen as a pre-order)….you can do Attend This Event, or right here on this website via paypal….here.
Or here is the embedded link…….but if you want to chat, or see the chat…….I would follow the other link. What you will view right now is the show from last week…….it will go away the moment we go live at 9:oopm London time:
