Recording Studio tracks to share!

Written By: Jenn - Feb• 07•10

Yesterday I shared a song that we recorded at our first Studio session last week. I have to tell you, that night was one of the best ever. Definitely an item that we could all cross off of our collective bucket list! ShaMoo, Knarf, John-Boy and I sang our hearts out and had a wonderful time. Our fabulous accompanist, Walt, was a real trooper – we knew he was exhausted but he still came from quite a distance, and did us proud. He rocks. We owe him a night out for doing that for us.

You might recall that we were pretty upset when our Christmas concert’s recording was botched so badly that it was completely unusable. This completely made up for that disappointment! Here are a few of those tracks that we have to share with you.

This session was a learning one for us; while we are used to being mic-ed, it was a bit different with super sensitive equipment! Some of the tracks reflect minor mid-song changes that were made in settings, and we weren’t all that concerned about doing “perfect” tracks this time. We’re going back, probably a few weeks after I have my eye surgery… we still have more songs to record. Hopefully we’ll do a couple of these over again too.

I’ve also been suffering with acid reflux (eesh, I’m such a mess, aren’t I??), which has affected my throat and of course, my voice. Not a happy camper about that, believe me! The songs where I’m more “visible” are the ones I’d really like to do over again! Hopefully my vocal cords will heal and my voice will get back to normal soon, now that I’m medicated (some say I should have been medicated all along…)

Anyway, hope you enjoy them!

    Ya know…I know my ears are bad. Have been all my life, but I sure don’t hear anything wrong with any of these recordings. They are just AWESOME. Well one more thing we have in common…Acid Reflux…PFFFT. I have a prescription for mine that I swear by. Ranitidine. Also I don’t know if you know this but what helps also is to put the head of your bed up on blocks so your not lying flat at night. Sounds weird I know but it does help. Keep on singing. You guys are awesome :)

      Ah you’re too kind, Thom! I knew I like you for a reason (and it’s definitely not the OBO cracks, believe me!!)

      Thanks :)

      The Doc and I are trying a couple different meds to see what works best for me. I was taking Gaviscon, and it works (re a former comment by Quilly), but it’s just so vile chewing those foamy tablets… and it doesn’t last all night for me. Yes I’ve been propping myself up so I’m not flat out. That does help, but I guess I have a pretty severe case going. You know me – I never do anything half way, right?? ;)

    You all have such beautiful voices.

    I always take a antacid before dinner. I don’t fight the acid reflux anymore.

    Jenn — very nice. I liked Somewhere Out There best.

    I just got to these this evening. Amoeba is working hard and when I turned the music on he asked me to take it private — not because he didn’t like it, but because it was intruding on his train of thought. Given that, I can’t tell you what he thought.

  5. Ahh can’t listen until I get home from work. Great news that you are pleased though and that’s pretty cool to be able to sing for a proper recording.
