I thought it would be fun to share with you a little of what I do when it comes to recording and preparing a track to be album ready. On my upcoming album, "Illumination", I've arranged a piano version of the song "Secrets" by OneRepublic (yes I have the licensing permission). I'm very excited about it - and especially now after having recorded the cello part by young cellist Stephanie Yose. Stephanie is a 16 year old high school student from Sammamish, Washington - who is a talented cellist and plays with one of the top performing Seattle youth philharmonic orchestras. This was Stephanie's first time in the studio and she really caught on quickly and by the end of the day laid down a really fantastic session. I hope you enjoy a little peek into my world.
