When I was a kid, I used to sit in my room for hours with a Karaoke machine that had duel tape decks. I would record myself playing and singing. Then I would bounce those tracks off to another tape and add two more instruments.
It was a crude way of making solo multitrack recordings, but it taught me a lot.
This is a little side project I made in the spirit of those first recordings.
Of course, I'm no longer using a Karaoke machine.
After my band SNAFU finished recording "SNAFU:The Album" in 2012,
I ended up storing the recording equipment inside a little room in my house. One weekend, I decided to set up all the equipment and lay down a few ideas I'd been working on. Each song was recorded one weekend at a time, reflecting the mood I happened to be in that week.
The result is a musical journey of emotion from start to end.
With a host of instruments on hand and unlimited digital tracks to record to, I was a free spirited kid again, creating whatever came to mind.
Only this time I had a much bigger canvas.
