Home from Recording at Gat3 Studio

Elizabeth and I got home last night from the trip down to North Carolina. We drove down with Buddy and Kay on Wednesday.

Destination: Gat3 Studio in Charlotte, NC.
When: Wednesday, June 13, 2012 through Saturday, June 16, 2012
Event: Recording Buddy's new CD at Gat3 (Noah's Ark themed songs)

It's going to take several blog entries to post all the stories, thoughts, pictures and videos that we took. Wow! This was one of the coolest experiences --- to be in the studio while all the musicians were scoring the background and recording. The background musicians recorded all of the tracks on Thursday, and those are four really, really talented guys! Then, Buddy recorded all of the vocals on Friday. The musicians recorded all of the songs in the order that they'll appear on the CD. Buddy recorded the vocals from back to front. :)

Danny Crawford (Piano and Keyboard)
Tony Creasman (Drums)
David Johnson (Guitar, Various Acoustic Instruments)
Buddy Davis (Vocals)
Mark Fain (Bass Guitar)

The recording for the tracks started at 10:30am and lasted until 8:30pm. Buddy's vocals started at 10:00am and lasted until 5:30pm. Everyone at the studio was really nice, and they were all very friendly.

Ohio seems to be the only state suffering from a lack of rain and an inordinate amount of traffic on the roads. West Virginia and Virginia were beautiful and very green. Also rather unpopulated, which was a nice feeling. I'm going to start putting up pictures tomorrow, and we took a lot! More later.

  1. Tony Creasman and David Johnson work where I work on Mondays and Tuesdays, and GAT3 later in the week. Danny Crawford is also in fairly often. Cool!
