In the previous post, I mentioned that when I began thinking about recording this new project of new music I had written, my plan was to record it in the studio where I recorded my last project, “A Resting Place.” It was close by, and I felt comfortable working there with the producer and musicians. However, God had closed that door to me and instead open doors to record with producers in Nashville. As I mentioned previously, this was definitely pushing me out of my comfort zone.
When the door opened to work with Dennis Dearing, I didn’t know what to expect. Through talking with him on the phone and Skype, I could tell he had a kind, gentle heart and that he understood my vision and my heart for this project. When I went to his studio in Franklin, TN and got to meet him face to face, we connected, and I knew I had chosen the right producer for my “Little Girl In Me” album. Not only was he kind, full of encouragement and easy to work with, a very talented and gifted producer, but he is also a very gifted guitarist. He brought the very best out of me in my vocals and the songs I’ve written that are on the project. We spend four days working on the arrangements of most of the songs and close to four to five hours of each of those days laying down vocal tracks. I was pretty exhausted by the end of each day. The excitement and fulfillment I felt each day, however, reaffirmed to me deep within, that this is going to be a great project.Continue reading “READY FOR TAKE-OFF: The Recording Adventure”
