Lordy, Lordy, Lordy - Mixing

And the mixing has started.. I now have rough mixes of all 10 tracks, it's pretty amazing to hear songs I've heard in my head for up to 15 years finally starting to take physical form. I had a pretty emotional response the first time I heard the strings on 'Fallen'. I wrote that song in 1997 and always heard the string section you can hear below & to finally actually hear it when my buddy Dylan added them was a pretty intense moment. Anyway below is three more works in progress 'Oh my lover', 'Portrait' & 'Fallen'.

In the studio - A Photographic Essay

Sorry for the lame post title, I couldn't resist.. some shots from in the studio last Wed night, with John putting piano & keys down. The results of which can be heard on the two tracks in my previous post.
