June 5th, 2012, we appeared on Good Morning Northwest to promote the Walla Walla Relay for Life. Check out our 'Decent Exposure' page for video clips. We had to show up at 4:45, perky and well-dressed. 4:45 IN THE MORNING! It was a hoot, and we owe many thanks to Crystal Costa and Jason Valentine and all the crew at KAPP/KVEW in Kennewick/Richland for having us on the show and for treating us so well. We were impressed with the high level of professionalism and the quality of the production. It really made our job easy. Even though it was 4:45 in the morning. Did I mention that it was early?
A wonderful six hours in the studio on Memorial Day, thanks to our brilliant recording sound engineer at Coffee Ring Studios. We read up on what to do before hand, and it all came down to being prepared. We knew exactly what songs we wanted to record, had the arrangements all (mostly) worked out (some changes in the studio, but not many, and all for the good) and we'd rehearsed the songs until they were performance ready. We were going for a live sound, so the only multi-tracking we did was to add some harmonies that we normally do as we're playing, but in the studio we had the luxury of concentrating on playing the instrumental parts with the lead vocals and overlaying the harmonies - still, captured our live performance sound brilliantly. So - preparation is the key, to all you aspiring recording artists!
Tuesday we're doing a live performance on TV, and later this summer we'll be back in the studio to record an album. Got a few more songs to write, a lot more rehearsal and performance time first though. Plus, we've hired a fantastic videographer to capture us on stage. We'll be posting sound clips and video soon!
In the meantime, send us, via comment, your favorite BLT covers or originals - the ones you'd most love to see on an album! We love our fans!!!!
