Yesterday was a solid day & night of recording. Ryan and I spent most of the day recording scratch tracks and talking through arrangement stuff. Then, at around 5 we were joined by Jared Falk (drums) and Jeremy Friesen (bass) to get a few tracks done.
By the end of the night, we had solid bass/drums for:
I Will Trust You
Lost and Found
Both these guys are awesome. I loved the passion that they brought to these tunes – there’s something amazing about having a couple of great musicians really own your song, dig into it, wrestle with it and do the best they can to make it sound amazing. I love that. Music is truly a universal language!
So, Jeremy will be the bass fella again tonight, and we’re bringing in Sam Heard to play drums for the next 3 tunes. Should be fun!
Wondering about how “14/12” will go…it’s a very sad tune about the Sandy Hook tragedy back in 2012. A lament tune that wrestles with suffering and a loving God. Some theological tension with that one…but more on that later.
