The past couple weeks have been pretty busy between playing shows, booking a tour of the south (!!), and practicing for my upcoming audition for the New England Conservatory’s Contemporary Improvisation department. I’ll elaborate on all of those things as they quickly approach, but this weekend I’m focused on recording with Ezekiel’s Wheels.
Last year, we recorded a short EP, and this year we’re excited to be working on something a little more substantial. On Saturday, we’re headed to Nat’s parents’ house in Hingham, MA (where we recently played a house concert in their large living room) to begin work on a full-length album. It’ll feature a mix of our classic repertoire as well as some new original tunes by Jon and Nat. Over the next couple months, we’ll be venturing to the south shore along with Ariel Bernstein and his portable recording studio. Our goal is to have everything recorded, mixed, and mastered in time for our April tour. Bonus points if we get it professionally pressed in time for tour, though we may have to do a special homemade edition of the CD to have copies with us on our upcoming adventure. More updates to come for sure.
