To keep the price down, I decided to have my CD packaged in jackets, which doesn't leave much room for liner notes. Here are some notes about the recording:
Everybody Sing was recorded in my home studio between June and August of 2013. With the exception of the amazing Paul Brainard's pedal steel guitar on The Sandbox, and Tallulah's voice on The Johnson Creek ABCs, all the sounds you hear are me. All production and mastering were done by me as well. Not to toot my own horn, but... I did play horn on it as well. I programmed the drums on The Sandbox, and other than that all instruments were played live.
I am a full-time stay at home Dad, and my wife is a high school teacher. During her summer vacation I retreated to the basement often, for hours at a time. I had originally hoped that this album would be longer, but this was what I could get done in the few months that I had to work with. I'm quite proud of it, and I hope you enjoy it too!
