Fascinations Grand Chorus
The latest project in my studio is the combination of two rival songwriters: Stephanie Cupo and Andy Pierce. Both are coming from previous projects that did recording in my studio: Souvenir Stand and Chalk and Numbers. For their first release, we tried a little harder sound for their opening track Welcome. The song features aggressive drums which normally I don't have in my studio. The louder the drums get, the harder it is to control the cymbals and I usually find less is more with drum playing. But for this song we opened things up. For some reason I've been leaning on slide guitar and rather than go with a typical crunchy rock guitar, I went with a heavy slide guitar. Usually once you put on a slide, you're going into Bluesland or the Whipping Post, but I wanted to try and add a slide guitar in a non-blues setting.
